Boyd: (speaking about his new music CD Last Bus To Porthcawl) I am very proud of Last Bus To Porthcawl and hope it will be well received in Wales and beyond.
Boyd: I'm Welsh working class and I've known all sorts of weird and wonderful beings. I really like Welsh people - there is a gentleness and goodness to us.
Boyd: (talking about High Hopes director Gareth Gwenlan) I've never worked with a director like Gareth. He has a natural authority and obvious immense control of what he's doing and it gives the cast and crew real security and confidence.
Boyd: (talking about his show High Hopes) The idea for High Hopes came initially from an article in The South Wales Echo about some youngsters finding an old man's body under a stairwell on a Valleys estate. This then got muddled up in my head with the plight of the homeless, especially young homeless people. We have a generation of young people cast adrift. They have no security, no love and no hope. This isn't their fault - it's ours.
