Scott Adkins Quotes
Some of the best and most inspirational quotes by Scott Adkins include:
“I did martial arts since I was 10 years old, and I’ve got as much love for the movies as I have for martial arts, so when I was 18 years old, I started studying performing arts with the eye of getting into the film industry and went to drama school after that.”
“I’m like the king of the low-budget sequel. People ask, ‘What film are you going to do next?’. I don’t know, but it’s probably got a 3 or 4 in the title.”
“I can pretty much say that because of Bruce Lee and Jean-Claude Van Damme, that’s why I do what I do today.”
“I’m always trying to improve my skills as an actor. I think it shows in ‘El Gringo;’ it shows in the new ‘Universal Soldier.’ You can’t rest on your laurels; you’ve got to keep improving.”
“I’m good when I’ve got a bit of an edge, like the Clint Eastwood type of archetypal character. The tough guy that doesn’t say a lot.”
“I’ll be honest – I never saw myself making a ninja movie, never entertained the idea. I think ninja films can be quite cheesy unless you do them in feudal Japan.”
“I do find violence entertaining, but that doesn’t make me a bad person. I grew up watching all these action films when I was a kid. My dad would bring back ‘Rambo’ and whatever, and we’d watch it together. It’s not affected me in any way other than I just appreciate the entertainment value of violence on film.”
