Born: November 8, 1956 in Wellington, New Zealand

[on writing the script for War Horse (2011)] I remember Steven [Spielberg] phoning me up one day and saying ‘Which bit are you working on?’ and I said, ‘I am the horse’. He said, ”What do you mean?’ and I said, ‘Well, unless we are clear what the horse is thinking all the time, it is going to be tougher for you’. I remember thinking very hard about what the horses would feel when they were first taken away by German soldiers and first saw dead horses by the roadside, and how frightening that would be.

[on Philip Seymour Hoffman] I don’t think there is any doubt or argument that he was the greatest character actor of our time.
