Thank you BarrowmanDay Girls
On First Meeting Scott - "Scott came into the dressing room while I was getting dressed, ... I was bending over to pull my pants up, so the first thing he saw was my bare bum. Then I turned around and saw him. At that very instant, in my head, I said, 'That's him. That's the one.' And he says he was thinking the exact same thing."
On His Parents Attitude To His Sexuality - "My parents have always brought us up to believe that sex and sexuality are something to be proud of, and you don't have to flaunt it if you don't want to. People don't walk around with a banner saying they're straight, so why should I walk around with one saying I'm gay? I understand there are people who want to and need to make that statement, and I appreciate that, but don't come down on me because I'm not one of them."
On His Family Visits - "When I go to Florida for Christmas I always take my nieces and nephews out on excursions, ... I become like a big kid again. We go on all the big rides at the theme parks or I stick them in go-karts where their feet can't quite reach the pedals. I think that if you can continue to have the child at heart you may grow old physically but you will stay young mentally."
On what he thinks of what is written about him on the Internet, which he refuses to read - Remember that I have a family. Remember that I have teenage nieces and nephews--and younger--who do surf the Internet for stuff about their uncle. And I would appreciate if you don't make up rumors and things about me. If you want the facts, go to my Web site. I'm truthful. I'm honest about the way I talk. If you want the truth, come to me.
After being told that his role in Torchwood (2006) had propelled him to "instantaneous National Treasure status" - "I was gobsmacked by that. I was absolutely gobsmacked. All these things that are happening. I just sit back and . . . I can't believe it but I love it. I'm totally enjoying it. Because I'm a fan, a sci-fi fan, they have made a young boy's dreams come true."
On the difference between Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant – “Chris was always grumpy. You don't always have to be intense. There comes a point when intensity makes you miserable - I think that was the case with Chris. I much prefer working with David - he likes to have a bit more fun, he's more charismatic as a person. Chris might have been a great Doc but he was darker and had a chip on his shoulder, he was not as much fun on set as David. I will give him the credit that he was the first Doctor to bring back the series and made a damn good job of it. But I just wouldn't go to the pub with him. On the other hand, David's been to my house, we went to the Madonna concert with our partners - we socialise together. He's a lot more fun.”
On his role as Captain Jack Harkness on "Torchwood" (2006) - There's a lot of me in Captain Jack and there's a lot of Captain Jack in me. And there is no pun intended.
On Captain Jack Harkness In Torchwood -"People said he was bisexual, but the show never put a label on it, ... We didn't want to make it an issue."
On The Torchwood Script -"It's very good writing, if a little wordy, ... Not a night goes by where one of us doesn't trip over some piece of dialogue."
