I think there’s lots of advice I’ve been given about ‘how you do the job’ but the one thing that really rang truth for me as far as being an actor in the profession is that you should never take anything personally. That you will be rejected all the time. People will say “no” to you all the time. That you are always too tall, too short, too fat, too thin, too ugly, too good looking. You’re always “too something” for the job and you have to just let that go and get on with the next thing. It’s the hardest thing to do. And it’s sort of the bit of advice I come back to myself, to remind myself of all the time.
It’s a fantastic job but it’s also the sense that it’s about rejection.
— David Morrissey

“Nothing’s difficult. I’m having a good time. I look at this as a total blessing, you know, and as myself being fortunate to do what I do. I could just be a musician with these great ambitions on a corner somewhere. But I’m not. I’m able to do it and even be compensated for it. You won’t hear me complaining”. - Pharrell Williams
