#Quote
1None of us had any idea of how successful 'Downton' was going to be. I thought I was signing up for another period drama that had a slightly modern feel. It had a freedom about it because it was coming out of the head of Julian Fellowes. Anything could happen and generally did.
2I'm lucky to be married to someone who entirely gets what I do. She is totally sympathetic to the actor's life. Her own mother was an actress, so she sort of grew up with it.
3I'm amazed by just constantly - there's not a week that goes past where there's not someone in Ulan Bator or Rio De Janeiro suddenly says, 'Ooh, 'Downton' started this week.' You completely forget it's staggered across the world.
4Oh, it is quite possible that none of us in 'Downton' will ever again get the ratings this has had. But from a career point of view, it has opened so many doors.
5It's head and heart. I like to feed both. I always wanted to be an actor. But the cultural-intellectual side of things has always excited me. I wouldn't want to let it go.
6As long as I am given the opportunity to keep performing and keep exploring in whatever medium, I'll be happy. As long as I get to spend time with my family, I'll be happy. As long as I can write in some form, I'll be happy. It is the essential things like that I equate with happiness.
7My dad's family were pretty working class, actually.
8The Broadway audiences are very vocal and seem very engaged. For certain shows, especially with a show like 'The Heiress,' the audience's reactions sound like Jerry Springer (1991) sometimes. That seems to be a very New York thing. Oh, there's also the entrance round of applause here, which we don't get too much in London.
9I have only recently got interested in film, and it is a strange way of working in many ways. But actually, when it is at its best, it's quite an extraordinary way of working between a director and an actor, to really explore an inner life.
10What was interesting was talking to older gay men about what it was like being gay in the Eighties.
11I've been a lucky boy.
12I'm sure I wouldn't have been asked to judge the Man Booker if it weren't for 'Downton.'
13I would like to do something modern and possibly funny.
14I'm shocked at being recognized.
15I was never very happy at school.
16I want to spend as much time as I can with my family, yet I'm aware of having to bring home the bacon.
17Every night, half an hour before curtain up, the bells of St. Malachy's, the Actors' Chapel on New York's 49th Street, peal the tune of 'There's No Business Like Show Business.' If you walk the streets of the theatre district before a show and see the vast, enthusiastic lines it sounds like a calling: there is certainly no place like Broadway.
18People look at me, they know I've appeared in costume dramas and they automatically assume I must be a Tory, I must be a certain type of person.
19I never quite toed the line.
20But even writing the column for the 'Telegraph,' that idea of working to deadlines, which as an actor that's not something you have to do in the same way. It's excited me into wanting to do a bit more.
21When it is good, theatre takes a lot of beating both to watch and perform.
22At 13, in my first year of Tonbridge, I went up for the part of Macbeth. I was up against the 17- and 18-year-olds, but for some reason I got the part. It made me incredibly unpopular with my peers, but it was the English and drama teachers who stepped in to save me when others wanted me kicked out of the school.
23I've never been a fan of directors who clutter a piece with all sorts of crazy preconceptions or weird ideas.
24I was a pretty difficult teenager.
25I haven't done as many films as I would have liked.
26I don't think there's ever a right time to have kids. I'm actually pretty glad it's happened quite young.
27I don't think many people get to play big emotions in life.
28I don't know much about my biological background.
29Coming back to theatre is something I'm keen to do for the rest of my life. It recharges my batteries, so to speak.
30I always wanted to be an actor.
31Planet Earth (2006) was such an extraordinary series and the 'Making Of'... is fascinating: the creatures and stories behind the camera are just as fascinating as those in front. It's a bit of a dream come true to be a part of the team in some small way.
32I saw Mercury Prize-winners Alt-J for the first time recently, touring their debut album 'An Awesome Wave,' and I'm still riding the high: they're the most musically dynamic and exciting band to have poured tune into my lug holes live since Bellowhead.
33You can be romantically interested in someone and love them and still, I think, be really interested in things and a certain lifestyle that person might provide.
34At the age of 11 I was about 6 ft. tall and my voice had completely broken. That caused problems. I was this gangly, spotty, very unattractive kid. I wasn't cool and I wasn't a nerd. I didn't even want to fit in with anyone.
35Not a lot of people would think that I spent most of my early years totally rebelling against anything I could, getting suspended from school, going on demonstrations.
36Books are my weakness.
37Everything's so accelerated now.
38It's nice to get your glad rags on for awards like the Baftas, but it doesn't happen all the time.
39I'm a huge fan of Eighties music.
40I don't see money or a particular status as an actor as a goal, but I want to do the best work I can in as interesting a range of roles as I can.
41All my early school reports from the age of 5 were 'Daniel must learn not to distract others.'
42I've had to learn when not to tweet. Like, you learn how to keep your mouth shut? Learn to keep your tweet shut.
43I've never tried to find my real parents. I'm very grateful to my mum and dad for adopting me - they're completely incredible people. It was my dad who encouraged me to question everything, to forge my own path, to think, to read. I always felt it was my right to question everything.
44In the 21st century, I think it's fair to say, homosexuality is more accepted in Britain and it's wonderful that my generation has been able to grow up with that.
45Soap opera seems to be a dirty word, but actually they are the most popular shows we have. People want to know what happens next, people hate the villains and love the lovers. It's good, fun TV. But I wouldn't call 'Downton' a soap opera as such.
46The female attention I have to struggle hardest with is from my two-year-old daughter.
47We take so many of our freedoms for granted nowadays - I can travel where I like, I can have a baby when I like, I can do any job I want - but I do think chivalry has been lost a little bit.
48My dad tells me that he took us to a pantomime when I was very, very small - panto being a sort of English phenomenon. There's traditionally a part of the show where they'll invite kids up on the stage to interact with the show. I was too young to remember this, but my dad says that I was running up onstage before they even asked us.
49A British porch is a musty, forbidding non-room in which to fling a sodden umbrella or a muddy pair of boots; a guard against the elements and strangers. By contrast the good ol' American front porch seems to stand for positivity and openness; a platform from which to welcome or wave farewell; a place where things of significance could happen.
50The comfort zone is the great enemy to creativity; moving beyond it necessitates intuition, which in turn configures new perspectives and conquers fears.
51[on the controversy surrounding his leaving the 'Downton Abbey' cast to make 'The Guest'] I couldn't have sat down two years ago and said, 'Okay, Julian Fellowes, what I really want to do is a twisted action thriller black comedy with horror elements. Preferably with an American accent'. That would have been insane and highly implausible. But as soon as the opportunity came along it seemed like a reality.
