1Red hair
2Tall, slender build
3Irish accent
1No one can give me advice on 'Star Wars' because nobody knows what I'm doing in 'Star Wars.'
2I get asked to give stuff to my dad. I'm, like, 'I'm not gonna pass your script to him!' You know? My dad's my dad. I'm not his agent.
3The idea of having dreams that don't come true is really terrifying.
4I did Never Let Me Go (2010) and there were amazing people on that. Brilliant writer, director, cast. That was quite special.
5I do feel a wave come over me when I hear those two words, 'Star' and 'Wars,' said together. I feel tense, shut up, and stare into the middle distance.
6The Coen brothers are amazing; they're special.
7I watched a couple of films I was in and thought, 'Those are pretty close to what we wanted them to be. I feel actually weirdly OK with it all. I can still see flaws in what I'm doing, but I think I delivered. I think I improved the film with my presence.'
8The Olympia was a really special place for me as a kid. I saw Dad perform there so many times, so it means a lot.
9The whole idea with acting is that you take some risks. And if you take some risks, you're really going to mess up sometimes. But it's not OK to mess up a movie; it's not OK to do that just so you can improve as an actor. But film-making takes a little bit of risk in every department.
10There's so many good comic actors that you just take the best of and try and run with it yourself. Try and bring a little bit of yourself to it, too.
11I'm certainly a young actor. I'm certainly those two things. Actually, I'm not even young anymore; I'm 29. So, I'm an actor.
12Life is difficult for everyone; everyone has bad days. Everyone has trouble in their life, because it doesn't matter how rich you are: Sickness and trouble and worry and love, these things will mess with you at every level of life.
13'Black Mirror,' I read that, and I had another offer for a movie at the same time that was a bigger movie, an actual film as opposed to TV, but I said, 'No, it has to be Black Mirror.' And it hadn't been sold to Netflix, hadn't gone abroad at that point - but it's just good work - that's all there is to it.
14I've been interested in the writing/directing thing and really fell into acting by complete accident.
15My mum and my dad have really good taste in movies. My gran would tape them off the TV and write notes about them, rating them.
16In 'Cavalry' I had one scene where I was playing a pretty awful character.
17When I was younger, my father told me not to pigeonhole the way that I perceive myself.
18I don't go to premieres I'm not involved in.
19Yeah, yeah, yeah, time travel's a nightmare. Don't go down that path.
20Really, all I worry about is the work in hand.
21I was in 'Harry Potter,' and nobody on the street recognizes me from that. Nobody on the street has ever stopped me from 'Harry Potter!'
22I find looking forward scary because you might die.
23Punch-Drunk Love (2002) is my favorite movie.
24I got very lucky with 'Harry Potter.' I got that role because I'm a ginger! Red hair was my only qualification!
25I'm not built like a leading man.
26Angelina Jolie is just an extremely talented, generous, nice person to be around and to work with.
27Conventionally handsome is not really where I'm at.
28I stand to learn more working as an actor with really talented people than I do by directing a feature.
29I'm a little bit drifty. I'm a little bit all over the place.
30I like Philip Larkin an awful lot; I really like his view on life, and I really connect to it.
31Doesn't matter if I'm right or wrong - if I'm hungry or hot, I'm probably arguing with someone about something. Especially if that someone is rude.
32My father is just getting better and better, and that speaks so well of the way he approaches the work.
33I did like 'Star Wars' when I was a kid. I saw the prequels first; I didn't see the full original films first all the way through.
34'Pale Fire' by Vladimir Nabokov was bloody hard work but really thrilling.
35Normally, in a film with lots of twists and turns, half of them don't make sense; they're just there for their own sakes.
36It's nice to sit down when you're not working. I try to do it as often as possible.
37'Star Wars' is different to anything I've done before.
38Just because I'm doing 'Star Wars' doesn't mean that'll be the thing that makes people stop me in the street.
39I'm a pessimist by nature, so it's always the worst things that come to mind first whenever you make a decision or have a decision to make.
40Fail again, fail better.
41I tend to play 'tortured' a lot, whether it's physically or emotionally.
42I got to work with Cillian Murphy and my dad, Jim Broadbent and Jodie Whittaker on Perrier's Bounty (2009) It was a small part, but it was really special.
43I think the whole thing is: If it makes sense in your head, the audience will go along with it.
44It's hard to get people up and out to shows, but 'The Walworth Farce' has masses of energy and will attract a crowd who don't always come to the theatre, which is great.
45Portraying as human the people you hear about on the news doing bad things is dangerous. But it's also necessary and important.
46The rom-com genre is not something that necessarily lights my jets.
47I'd seen my dad on stage, and that was fine, but the real excitement was - that was my dad. Even now, when I see his films, he's always my favorite person in the movie.
48Going home, spending time with the family, I feel they're my friends as well, all of them. I look forward to meeting any one of them for a coffee, and when we all get together, I just love it.
49I'd rather do one day on a really cool movie than six months on something crap.
50My dad said, 'If no one was giving me acting work, I'd have to be prepared to create it myself.'
51I worked with the Coen brothers, which had been a dream of mine.
52There is something wonderful about turning up every day and knowing that not just the character but the whole movie kind of rests on your shoulders. And there's great satisfaction when you think it's going well and then real terror when you think it's not.
53Two things are always happening in acting. On the one hand, it's a team sport. We're all pulling together. But on the other, you have to look after your own character. Guard their interests.
54Everyone talks about how we're on our phones all the time, but the fact remains that when I'm away on a film set for two months, I can Skype my family. I remember the phone calls my parents had to make when my dad was away for a while when I was younger - that once-a-week expensive phone call! The time pressure on talking to your father!
55I like films that are gritty and hard-hitting and suspenseful. Thrillers, too.
56I think everybody's got their insecurities and hang-ups. Everybody! Unless you're an idiot.
57When you work with actors, what you're hoping to absorb is good ways to be an actor as opposed to how to handle being famous.
58As an actor, there's very little you can do if people don't want to see you. Just getting yourself into the room to audition is tough.
59The worst thing as an actor is when you're not getting opportunities to try and show what you can do; the best thing is when you get material that really lets you express something and that you're excited about.
60I'm not going to get better as an actor working on bad stuff.
61If there's one person in the world with whom a chemistry read is unnecessary, it's Rachel McAdams.
62I like cashew nuts.
63I'm pleased to say I grew up in a happy family in Dublin. I feel we're very close.
64I've gotten work based on how I look, and I've not gotten work based on how I look. It's all good.
65Most of the time, I do what I'm offered, but after I worked for it. I think I try much harder for the things that scare me and inspire me. The things that scare and inspire you are things that are different from what you did before.
66Often times, I just do a job and tell my agents, 'I'm in lockdown now.' I won't talk to anybody about anything else in the meantime, and I think that's generally the way to go because I also like to have a gap in between jobs.
67Has anybody seen The Notebook (2004) and not cried? I don't know, I don't know if that's the case. It sort of hangs around for a while.
68Though rom-coms aren't necessarily my cup of tea, I was a huge fan of Notting Hill (1999). I laughed a lot, and the romance got to me.
69I'm pretty lowbrow. It's a failing.
70Look at Cillian Murphy: 'Batman,' 'Tron'... those are some heavy-hitting franchises. But he works his way around it. He manages to have a great career and a great life.
71It was when I was on stage that I realized that acting could be such a brilliant job.
72I'd been very certain about not wanting to do the acting thing because of my father. I thought I'd always have the father-son thing of 'He got you the part.'
73[on being cast in Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) I'm incredibly excited, but the only way I can be of value is by ignoring fandom, ignoring the other movies to a certain extent, and just trying to do the best job possible. And I think it will be the same for everyone else.
