Quotes by Jeffrey Wright
I used to say that ‘happy’ was like ‘lucky,’ kind of imaginary. But now that I’m married and have children, I find that happiness is a real space.— Jeffrey Wright
It’s one thing to know your lines, another to be able to deliver them. The taste of the pudding is in the delivery.— Jeffrey Wright
I’m not sure whether Los Angeles borders on the ocean or on oblivion. I always feel that I’m two steps away from the other side when I’m out there. It’s more like a vacation place or a place to visit than a place to hunker down.— Jeffrey Wright
Well, I look at it like this: When you go to a restaurant, the less you know about what happens in the kitchen, the more you enjoy your meal. If the soup tastes good, everything’s cool, and you don’t necessarily want to know what’s in it. The same thing holds true with movies.— Jeffrey Wright
What I’ve learned in my career as an actor is that you’re only as good as your collaborators. The process is many things, but it is wholly collaborative, particularly with something like ‘Westworld,’ which is a 10-episode-per-season gig, and we’re just now on the 7th episode.— Jeffrey Wright
