John Simm’s 5 most popular quotes

  • I think I can be closed in. I can close this outer shell, cut myself off and be quite cold. I can cut other people off if I need to. I don’t think I’m angry, though… Maybe my wife would disagree.
  • I love Manchester. I always have, ever since I was a kid, and I go back as much as I can. Manchester’s my spiritual home. I’ve been in London for 22 years now but Manchester’s the only other place, I think, in the country that I could live.
  • You never undertake a project because you think other people will like it – because that way lies madness – but rather because you believe in it.
  • When I got to 40, I was happy. Now I can wear what I like, listen to what I like, don’t have to try and be cool. I’m someone’s dad and it doesn’t matter any more. That’s an enormous freedom.
  • Twitter has restored my faith in humanity. I thought I’d hate it, but while there are lots of knobheads, there are even more lovely people. It delights me how witty and friendly most people are.
