  • Quotes

    • Ioan: (about continuing to play the Horatio Hornblower character) I would love to play this character through every stage of his life. I think it would be unique to have an actor playing him from the very early days as a midshipman; through till he's an Admiral. So, I would love to play this character till he perishes.

    • Ioan: (about his difficult to pronounce name) So what if it's difficult for people to pronounce? We all learned how to say Schwarzenegger.

    • Ioan: As long as you understand that you find happiness through family, friends and love, then money is just a nice bonus.

    • Ioan: A few people have said that I should change my name and the spelling so that people can say it, but I don't want to, I like it the way it is.

    • Ioan: As a Welshman, I grew up in a culture of singing and performing with music, and I think it was through this performing that I got my confidence as an actor.

    • Ioan: When I saw a billboard on Sunset Strip I parked the car, ran out, took a picture of it, then emailed it to all my friends.

    • Ioan: It was quite something for an unknown actor to get the lead. So I will always be grateful to Hornblower.

    • Ioan: My girlfriend, Alice, and I moved out to Los Angeles in January . We just rented a house there for a year. I want to work there, I've always had that ambition, and I've got to be there if I want this to work.

    An excellent actor, very handsome to say the least and very very talented.

    I have never seen him before Ringer, but I sure hope to see a lot more of him in the near future. He really gives Andrew just that little bit extra and I adore his accent.
