-   It's 'Rafe', actually.

-   When children were introduced to Lord Voldemort, they looked suitably terrified. Which gave me great gratification.

-   As an actor, a part of you expects to be looked at. A part of you wants to be looked at. But when I'm playing a part, in my imagined world, I feel I'm not me. I may be using bits of me, but I love the sense that I'm being someone else.

-   Awards are like applause, and every actor likes to hear applause.

-   The process of making a film is a mad lottery. Whenever you get the feeling that you're making something special, you have to quickly squash it because you are so often proved wrong.

-   [on _The Avengers (1998)_ (qv)] I think it's a badge of honor to have a real flop on your resume.

-   I tried not to play Voldemort over the top, and then I realized there's no other way.

-   I veer away from trying to understand why I act. I just know I need to do it.

-   The people I consider successful are so because of how they handle their responsibilities to other people, how they approach the future, people who have a full sense of the value of their life and what they want to do with it. I call people successful not because they have money or their business is doing well but because, as human beings, they have a fully developed sense of being alive and engaged in a lifetime task of collaboration with other human beings -- their mothers and fathers, their family, their friends, their loved ones, the friends who are dying, the friends who are being born. Success.. is all about being able to extend love to people... not in a big, capital letter sense but in the everyday. Little by little, task by task, gesture by gesture, word by word.

-   [on the death of 'Natasha Richardson' (qv)] I cannot imagine a world without her wit, her love, her mischief, her great, great talent and her gift for living. I loved her very much. She was a supreme friend. I shall miss her deeply.

-   [on filming Coriolanus in Belgrade, Serbia] I needed an important and big capital city and I didn't want it to be Rome, but any contemporary city. Given this is a modern interpretation of Shakespeare, Rome just wasn't the suitable location because Rome of today is reminiscent of a mighty state like the USA or Russia, and I wanted it to be something different. I've come to realize here in Belgrade that a lot of history is reflected through buildings. This is a capital city with a great history. I have been to Bucharest and Zagreb, but Belgrade has always been the first choice for me. Initially, I was attracted by Belgrade's spirit and later I realized this was an ideal filming location.

-   [on filming Coriolanus in Belgrade, Serbia] I am lucky to have a great crew from Serbia and the UK, and I've been working on the script with John Logan for almost three and a half years.

-   [on filming Coriolanus in Belgrade, Serbia] You really do have fantastic actors here in Serbia as well as a long theatre tradition, which is probably why it's now even stronger than that of London and I'm really flattered to be filming here.

-   My parents were very financially-challenged. All of us children have the memory of being told that there was no money, we have to sell this, there's no presents for Christmas. Of being in the front line of that constant worry; the atmosphere in the home always charged with anxiety. 'What do we do? What do we do?'

-   (April 2005) Stars in Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar" as Mark Antony at London's Barbican Centre, in a production by 'Deborah Warner (I)' (qv) with 'Fiona Shaw' (qv) (Calpurnia) and 'John Shrapnel' (qv) (Caesar). The production will be on tour to France and Spain later this year with the same cast.

-   (June 2006) Currently appearing in the title role of 'Brian Friel (I)' (qv)'s "Faith Healer", at the Booth Theatre on Broadway. The revival co-stars 'Cherry Jones' and 'Ian McDiarmid' (qv), who won a Tony for best supporting actor. Ralph received a Tony nomination.
