    • Kevin: (on working for months in a skirt) [Laughs] When you're working in the Italian summer, it's quite nice. It's sort of like wearing a Scottish kilt. You have your own personal air-conditioner.

    • Kevin: I didn't actually enjoy the shoot of Trainspotting. I felt like a fish out of water.

    • Kevin: (on "Journeyman" creator Kevin Falls and the people he's worked with on the show) If I was going to be in bed with a group of people for a long time with a TV show, I couldn't think of anyone else I'd rather be in business with.

    • Kevin: (on his character in "Journeyman") I'm always attracted to characters that aren't extraordinary from the outset, but actually are pretty normal, maybe forward - Dan is a forward guy. He's had a gambling problem in his past and had some dark, dark moments.

    • Kevin: One thing I'm starting to realize is that audiences and critics expect you to deliver the same thing when you play different characters. But to me, playing different people is the whole point of being an actor. I love the challenge of playing different characters.

    • Kevin: All the years of moviemaking and flying by the seat of your pants and using your instincts has really helped me and helped keep me, hopefully, at an all time high on a tough schedule.

    • Kevin: (on wearing wardrobe from different eras in "Journeyman") It's funny, some of the clothes I'm put in, I feel like I'm Joey on Friends. I keep singing the Friends theme tune whenever I put some of that gear on. It's hilarious!

    • Kevin: (about the main difference between the British and American acting jobs) The hours are much longer here (America). But the professionalism of everyone is awe-inspiring.

    • Kevin: (about his motivation as an actor) To me, playing different people is the whole point of being an actor. I love the challenge of playing different characters.

    • Kevin: (about having to use different accents for different roles) I actually love working with accents. I don't know, something about it unlocks something in me. It makes me concentrate on getting into character a little more, helps me find a focus.
