1I think I've got a funny face.
2I went to America to get away from constantly being cast in costume dramas, playing posh people.
3I'm a rather crude cook.
4I've always wanted to play more comic parts.
5I mean, I think women should be more indulgent of affairs. I really do. It's daft to kick someone out over a fling. Isn't it? Everyone should turn a blind eye to men's behavior between the ages of 40 and 50. Let it all blow over.
6My mum's parents were from Ireland, my dad's mum was American-Irish.
7I like to believe there are ghosts all over the place!
8Apparently it'll all settle down and they'll forget about it soon.
9Prince Charles is the best-dressed man in the world.
10No, I don't think The Wire (2002) screwed up my career at all.
11I'm only stopped by people in uniform, whether it's customs people, janitors, or the FBI - they all watch The Wire (2002). Sadly, beautiful, glamorous women don't know anything about it.
12If you do an American TV series, before the audition you sign away the next five years of your life.
13I look ridiculous in a three-piece suit - I'm too fat.
14Since I got married my wife doesn't really let me wear anything that I used to because she says I have no taste at all.
15It would have been an interesting run if we hadn't gotten along! It was good casting, I suppose.
16For a straight man, I seem to have to kiss an awful lot of men!
17The kiss always gets a hell of a reaction.
18People seem to think I'm Satan.
19I've hung out at dozens of playgrounds, bored out of my mind, with not even a look of comfort from disapproving mothers all around me. Either they think I'm a pedophile or a deadbeat dad. That's what I get for being a single dad - suspicious looks at the playground.
20You've got to grab every opportunity that comes up.
21If you turn on American TV, there's a huge choice of nothing you want to see and, unfortunately, I think that's the case here now as well. I love costume drama, no-one does it like the BBC - no-one has the money to do it, first of all and, secondly, Americans don't have the history to do it. So we do it brilliantly but if you talk to any BBC producers, they abhor the fact... they're dying to do The Wire (2002) and hate doing Cranford (2007) . I thought Cranford (2007) was incredible but we don't seem to be able to do contemporary stuff.
22[on Mona Lisa Smile (2003)] The movie didn't make much sense. We would be given new scenes to film out of the blue which, it transpired, had been written by Julia's agent, who was doubling as a producer. I don't know what anyone was doing there. No one seemed to enjoy it. Especially not Julia. She had just got married and just wanted to be off having sex with her husband. Trouble was, she had married the cameraman on the movie. You can't really relax in a sex scene when the husband is staring right at you.
23[on The Wire (2002)] The show provokes a kind of obsessive following. Those who love it kind of cherish the fact that it's not quite as world-renowned as The Sopranos (1999). It's like being in a secret club.
24I went to America to get away from constantly being cast in costume dramas, playing posh people. It's interesting that I've been cast as a working-class cop [The Wire (2002)] because I doubt that would happen at home. The films I most enjoy in England are by Mike Leigh and Ken Loach, but it's very unlikely I would be cast in them; I've tried a few times, but I'm perceived as posh.
25I don't know why British actors are getting big parts in American TV shows. Maybe it's because we're cheap.
1Dominic West portrayed late author George MacDonald Fraser's Victorian anti-hero Harry Flashman, the main character of Fraser's "Flashman" novels, at a 2014 auction of Fraser's library. West also stated at the time that he would like to see a new Flashman movie made for the new generation. The only previous movie, Royal Flash (1975) was not a success and was so disliked by Fraser that he would not allow another one to be made in his lifetime.
