NOTES

Made a Chevalier de L'Ordre National des Arts et Lettres by the French government in 1995.

Awarded the Order of the British Empire in 1996.

"I've always learned by doing. Of course, it's another way of life. But you always think of the end result. It's a question of temperament. For some people the theater is an absolute grind. You rehearse and then you do it. You do it and you do it and you do it. Whereas [in films and TV] the great thing is every moment is a new adventure. Something new is always happening. Film has this organic life. You have a script, but once you put director, actors, script, and setting together you get a chemical reaction. You come out with maybe something you weren't anticipating at the beginning -- which is always exciting. Anf the characters grow. It's always a good moment when the character starts taking you over, dictating how it wants to be played." --Michael York quoted in Cinefanstastique, April 1997.
