I told Prince Philip that, having met them both, I was struck, not by the differences between him and Charles, but by their similarities.
A good choreographer is one that’s going to collaborate, teach, guide – everything. The wonderful thing on ‘Brotherhood of the Wolf‘ was that we had Philip Kwok – he choreographed John Woo‘s ‘Hard Boiled,’ and in the ’70s, he was a martial arts actor, stunt man, fighter, choreographer in Hong Kong.
Like so many of us, I’m brokenhearted about the death of the remarkably talented actor Philip Seymour Hoffman.
The movie truism is that stars play themselves, while actors play other people – troubled or toxic, and memorably strange. By that definition, Philip Seymour Hoffman, who disappeared into the rabbit hole of his characters‘ souls, was our generation‘s anti-star and the chameleonic film actor of his age.
I like Philip Roth, John Updike, and Richard Yates.
Ray Bradbury was the first author that I was really exposed to back in grade school. I’m a big Philip K. Dick fan, but the emotion and humanity that Bradbury brings to his stories and the way he uses sci-fi to get at the human heart is something that’s unique and for me incredibly influential.
Philip Kitcher thinks that mathematics is surprisingly like empirical science. Few mathematicians would agree; philosophers too, from Socrates on, have held the opposite opinion.
I’ve never seen anyone – and I’ve had the opportunity to work with some really terrific actors in my time – but Philip Seymour Hoffman is definitely the best I ever had the opportunity to work with.
I’m currently working on a romantic comedy between me and Philip Seymour Hoffman. So my next step is to write something so mind-blowingly spectacular that he has no other choice but to agree to do it! Wish me luck.
Prince Philip protected the Queen and made her laugh.
Prince Philip’s principal role since 1952 has been to support the Queen. Alongside that, he has created his own working life as founder, fellow, patron, president, chairman, or member of at least 837 organizations – as well as a Colonel or Colonel-in-Chief, Field Marshal, Admiral, Air Commodore 42 times over.
Philip’s story is the most interesting in the royal family – his background is the opposite of what you’d think. Everyone has this idea that Philip is this bumbling, deliberately posh sort of man who says the wrong thing.
When it comes to his sons, it would be easy to think that the macho Duke of Edinburgh has most in common with Prince Andrew. After all, it was Andrew, his third-born son, who risked his life in the Falklands war as a Royal Navy helicopter pilot – just as Philip had risked his own as a naval officer during World War II.
The royals – all of them, especially Prince Philip and Prince Charles – have done outstanding work with the faith communities.
I’m a huge fan of Philip K. Dick.
There are two trilogies I admire: Robertson Davies’s ‘The Deptford Trilogy’ and Philip Pullman’s ‘His Dark Materials.’
I sense a kind of fear of writing black or Asian characters from non-ethnic writers, who perhaps feel that they don’t know the culture and therefore can’t write about it. By and large, if there’s an Asian character, I might get a call. But if the character is called ‘Philip,’ the chances are I won’t.
In many ways, Prince Philip was remarkably good-humored and long-suffering.
Wild Turkey whiskey and Philip Morris cigarettes are essential to the maintenance of human life!
I’ve always liked authors such as Philip K. Dick and Ray Bradbury.
I always had an acting crush on Philip Seymour Hoffman. He just wowed me all the time. He was just quietly so impressive and so private.
Prince Philip is very contrary. He challenges everything.
Philip Larkin has a tough honesty and sense of humor that I find irresistible, as a contemporary poet.
Writers of all things speculative have played in alternate and parallel worlds for a long time – everyone from Stephen King to Philip Pullman to Tanith Lee – and it’s an obsession that likely isn’t going away any time soon.
Philip Seymour Hoffman – I just think he’s incredible.
