"Ken offered me Malvolio in his production of 'Twelfth Night' at the very time I had decided to expand my career when I realized I had gone as far as I could doing sitcoms. As soon as I worked with him, I thought he was truly exceptional." --Richard Briers quoted in "A Midwinter's Tale" press material

"Rather than me going off and becoming a doddering small-part character actor, Branagh for the last 10 years has completely changed my whole life. So now I'm a respected character actor." --Briers to The Daily Telegraph, January 17, 2000

"As soon as Ken cast me in the straight stuff my income dropped. Job satisfaction 100 per cent; income 40 per cent." --Richard Briers quoted in London's Evening Standard, February 23, 2000
