Nick (I) Frost quotes
- (on his brief experience as a stand-up comedian) I did ten gigs at the very beginning. Five were amazing, and five were the worst moments of my life.
- (On his character in Spaced) Mike is based on a couple of people I know, one is a friend called Flea who is mad on weapons and stuff and Russia and another is Jon an ex-security guard who also likes guns a bit too much. But for their military love they are both lovely blokes.
- (on the trials of playing weapons-expert Mike in Spaced) I took a gun home to practice stripping it. A woman saw the barrel sticking out of my bag and called the police. I had gone home and it was a very hot day so I opened the back door of my house and was sitting in a pair of skimpy shorts with a blindfold on, taking the gun to pieces. When I put it back and lifted the blindfold up, there were six or eight armed policemen holding firearms at me and they came in and started screaming - it was very tense.
- Like Bergerac in space. (On the science-fiction series Blakes 7)
