Favorite Quotes by Chris

I was always trying, even in pure action movies, to find what was sensitive about the character more than the pure action. When I read Highlander, what interested me was the romance, the pain that this guy was carrying, not being able to die and looking around him at all the people he loved going before him.

Acting is still, of course, what I love to do most. The beauty of it is that by changing characters, it never gets boring. The most important thing is to be passionate and ready to accept the pains that sometimes go along with the business.

It may be a mistake to say this, but I know my limitations as an actor and I know what I can and can not do. Robert De Niro can do everything. I can’t. A “Highlander” movie is basically my thing. What I’m attempting to do is develop my ability as an actor and try to be the best I can be in the fantasy/action genre. I would love to do a “Rain Man,” but I think ultimately this is my thing.

– Christopher Lambert

It’s not a matter of becoming a superstar. Fame and money aren’t the purposes of all this. No actor’s going to say, “I don’t want to be famous.” But the main purpose of doing what I’m doing is the passion in the work.
