  • Quotes

    • Drew: The dream would be to work with my two favorite actors, Daniel Day Lewis and Cate Blanchett. Or playing Joaquin Phoenix's brother in a film. Basically anything where I get to act opposite actors like these; ones who bring a certain caliber to their work and literally morph into the character they are playing. I believe if you act with people who are better than you, it's only going to make you better.

    • (Drew's advice to an aspiring actor)
      Drew: I'd say if this is something you really want to do, realize that it takes full dedication. It means dropping whatever you are doing, becoming fearless and moving to a city like Chicago, New York or Los Angeles. Take classes and surround yourself with other actors. Be affected by the energy that these cities bring to you. It also involves following through with your dreams. We're all on this planet for such a short time, it would be a shame to, at 60 years old, look back and say, "I wish I had done that."

    • Drew: Family, to me, is most important, and I can't wait to have one of my own, but I am not going to rush into it. I don't want to get a divorce. I want to take my time, do it once and get it right.

    • (On being an actor)
      Drew: It's incredible. I think I have the best job on the planet. We get paid to play and entertain. It's also my form of therapy and release. I love being able to dive into new characters.

    • (About what he did during the writers' strike)
      Drew: Well, what happened was, at first I'm having a blast, going to the beach, riding motorcycles, going to museums - just doing everything I can to live my days and have fun, but I felt like I was lacking some purpose. I had so much time on my hands, and nothing was happening with the acting thing because the strike was going on, and I wasn't really sweating it because I knew I was coming back to the show. So, I got back into [acting] class just to kinda keep that muscle in shape. As much as I dislike class, I think it's really good to always keep your instrument in tune, so to speak.

    • Drew: All I do is have fun. When I'm not working, it's about making people laugh. I love making jokes about things. Even when someone's mad at me, I'll deflect anger with humor. My days are filled with laughter. If I'm not laughing, I'm not happy.

    • Drew: I learned more traveling and living abroad than I did in school. I was one of the smartest kids in class but there's nothing they can teach you that compares to seeing the Mona Lisa for real. I was traveling the world on someone else's dollar and making a lot of money. I lived in London and Paris and saw all these things that other kids my age wouldn't have done.

    • Drew: Right now I'm working on a show called Army Wives for Lifetime. I'm playing this bright-eyed idealist who loves his country, loves the Army, believes in everything that it stands for, and is going to do his best to go fight for his country. You know, fight blindly. It's a different character then I've ever played before. A sweet, innocent boy who is learning about everything for the first time.

    • (About his role on Charmed as Chris)
      Drew: The fans' response to Chris has been amazing. I feel so loved and appreciated, and it makes me happy to know that what I'm doing on the show affects people that much.

    • Drew: I never got into acting to become a star, but it's part of the deal.

    • Drew: I hate it when I hear about actors and actresses who hate the fans and really aren't polite and do 'Leave me alone.' Acting is sharing a part of you to the world. I understand that that's part of the job, and it's a good part of the job. It's fun to connect with these people.

    • (On modeling)
      Drew: So I'm down in Orange County and I'm feeling like okay, I want to be an actor. I go well, what's the best way to break into the industry? And I think, start modeling for a bit and then I'll break in. I thought that was a genius idea and every single model in Los Angeles is trying to be an actor. I thought I was really coming up with something great. It just wasn't.

    • (About his role on Charmed as Chris)
      Drew: I loved playing Chris. I loved how mischievous he was, how much fun he had. He became such a strong part of my life. There were so many similarities between Chris and myself. He was always in the middle, instigating things, in a good way and in a bad way. It was fun to be the troublemaker.

    • Drew: I'm never satisfied with my performance. I want to keep pushing myself. The great thing about being an actor is you're always learning. That's what excites me about the job and what continues to drive me.

    • Drew: It's cool to listen to fans when they're just panicked because they don't know what I'm about. Everyone wants to know! There are going to be tons of surprises. I'm going to frustrate a lot of people and at the same time they're going to be intrigued.

    • Drew: In the show, Leo and Piper didn't know I was their son, but I did, in real life. I knew the story but Holly and Brian didn't. It was difficult because I couldn't tell anyone the secret on or off set. But it was the right thing to do because it would have affected the way Holly and Brian treated me if they'd known.

    • (About his role on charmed as Chris)
      Drew: I think yes, there's a part of me in Chris, but I've had to bring that. It's not like they sat me down and watched how I act and tried to incorporate that into the character. I felt it's been entirely character-driven, and then I've had to bring my personality to it; I'm not bringing the character to me, I'm bringing me to the character.

    • (About his role on charmed as Chris)
      Drew: I'm a little bit good, a little bit bad. It's the best kind of character to play – you keep people in suspense.

    • Drew:I definitely have no muscle. My body's, I think, allergic to it.

    • (On his character in Black Sash)
      Drew: I loved playing Nick Reed. I was the bad boy. Nick was, at least in my opinion, the best role on the show. The rest of the characters were very much squeaky clean, whereas Nick had an attitude and all these personal demons he had to overcome. I don't mean to sound as if I'm gushing about the roles I've had but I've truly been blessed with how my career has been going. So I had a great time on Black Sash. Russell Wong is a fantastic actor and a pleasure to work with and I feel the same about Sarah Carter, who I think is just brilliant. It was also a treat to get out of Los Angeles for a few months and live in Vancouver, which is where the series was shot. I lived downtown and walked everywhere. The vibe in that city is incredible. I hope I have the chance to go back up there and work on something else.

    • (On the set of Charmed)
      Drew: People think weird things happen on the set because it's got some dark themes in the show. But don't believe the hype!

    • Drew: I think the biggest reason Charmed is such a success is because nobody takes it too seriously.

    • Drew: I've kind of known all along, and that's actually been the hardest thing. I mean, it's easy for a character, because now I have a direction; I know my relationship with Holly and Brian is much different than it would have been if I wasn't their son, but it was also more difficult because I couldn't tell anyone, whether it was in interviews or on set. I think they told me before they told anyone else, so it really helped my character because it set the story; they didn't know I was their son, but I did.

    • (About his role on The Ultimate Gift)
      Drew: Work begets work. My profession's based on the fact that I can do horror or action and then step into a project like this, where the character has as many layers as an onion.

    • Drew:I do think there are people with a sixth sense. My great-grandmother was about to have an operation to remove one of her kidneys when a woman came up to her in the street, put her hand on her stomach and said 'You're about to have surgery - don't, because it will cause more problems'. My great-grandmother was freaked out and didn't have the operation and it turned out it was the other kidney that was the problem so the woman saved her life. I think there is magic in the world or whatever you want to call it, and you can't turn your back on it.

    • Drew: Charmed is the best training in the world – 10,000 times better than any acting class. People are very quick to point out what you are doing wrong and what you could be doing better. But the fans are more concerned about the character than my performance. It's not like 'you could have been stronger in this scene' or 'we didn't like your hair in last night's episode'.

    • Drew: I have lived like a gypsy since I was 19. My friends would let me sleep on their couches, and whenever I was about to run out of money, I'd book an acting job to keep me going.

    • Drew: I do not know I necessarily believe in what they call "magic," but I believe deeply that there are mystical forces around us. I think that certain people are endowed with a sixth sense and have access to this supernatural world.

    • Drew: I get up at 5 am every day for work and I get home totally exhausted, so whenever I can, I relax by going surfing and snowboarding. It was originally in my contract that I wasn't allowed to do it but I've been doing it my entire life and I can't let go, so I made them change it. Luckily I've never had any serious injuries. I broke my toe in the summer but that was through stubbing it and that was the most painful thing in the world - so I think the snowboarding risk is worth taking.

    • Drew: Modeling was just a means to an end. I didn't tell anyone. Kids are mean!

    • Drew:I love football, but I'm not going to be the guy who paints his face.

    • Drew: I have no clue what a 'hottie' is. To think of myself in those terms is absurd.

  • He's really cute.

    8.5
    Of course when your a model that's your job to be cute but he just does it so well lol. I only seen him though in one movie which was The Circuit. Even in only seeing him prove to me that he is a pretty good actor. I didn't watch some of the shows he was in because they were spirtism in them but i so remember seeing him in other people's music videos like Lindsay Lohan's Over video. Other then what i mention i haven't seen him in much else but i sure do want to. Keep doing what ya do drew (i only said that because it sounded good).moreless
  • Very talented, and not bad to look at either.

    9.7
    I first knew who Drew Fuller was when he appeared as Chris on my all time favorite show Charmed. He was amazing, he is a very talented artist.He easily made me fall in love with his character being my second favorite guest star next to cole. The next time I saw him after that was Army Wives, which I only watched because Drew was in it, I ended up really liking the show, and once again a great performance by Drew. Shortly after he starred in one of my now favorite movies The Ultimate Gift. As usual, fantastic performance. He is a very talented actor and he's not bad to look at either.moreless
