Quotes by Cushing:
"If I played Hamlet, they'd call it a horror film."
"I hate the word 'hate'."
"People look at me as if I were some sort of monster, but I can't think why. In my macabre pictures, I have either been a monster-maker or a monster-destroyer, but never a monster. Actually, I'm a gentle fellow. Never harmed a fly. I love animals, and when I'm in the country I'm a keen bird-watcher."
"My criterion for accepting a role isn't based on what I would like to do. I try to consider what the audience would like to see me do and I thought kids would adore Star Wars."
Quotes about Cushing:
"Killed Dracula with a pair of candle stick holders. Blew up Alderaan. Fought Daleks. Has been at the Earth's Core. Killed more vampires than Buffy. Outsmarted Moriarty. Verbally bitch-slapped Darth Vader. I beg your pardon, but do you really think Chuck Norris can top that?"
