Alan: My Mum bought me a guitar when I was quite young, and I always plodded along with it.
Alan: I live in mortal fear of anyone who takes themselves too seriously.
Alan: (on public reactions when he left his wife, Susan, in Neighbours) There was a small group of mainly young men who considered me to be a total legend for hooking up with Natalie Bassingthwaighte (Izzy)! And then there was the vast bulk of the audience saying, 'Karl's mad. When will he get back together with Susan?'
Alan: (on the Izzy storyline in Neighbours) It was fantastic. Polarising an audience is part of good drama. If you played Mr Nice Guy, it would be so boring. Karl has plenty of arrogance; he can be abrasive and competitive. He has a lot of flaws, so that's interesting to play.
Alan: Most of my children have never known me to do anything else but Neighbours.
