  • Quotes

    • Lawrence: (on his appearance in Black Man Rising) I felt I needed to experience and tell this story. There are passages in this play that have the ability to bring about enlightenment to all races.

    • Lawrence: (on his love for comic books) There's nothing cooler than reading something and believing that you can fly or have the power to save people. I merged from wanting to be them to wanting to play them.

    • Lawrence: (his advice to young actors) It's a lot about how hard you are willing to work-how much you want it. Pursue your dreams, it doesn't matter what the odds are.

    • Lawrence: (on his first year of acting school) You go from acting and doing these plays and having fun to being in a highly criticized environment. And those criticisms from highly experienced teachers can be something of a damper on a newbie. The first year is just tearing you apart and putting you back together.

    • Lawrence: (on his surname) My family spell it different ways. My dad, who is Haitian uses St.Victor, but I do it Saint-Victor because my grandfather did it that way, and technically, it is the name on my birth certificate and social security card.

    • Lawrence: (on education) Before high school, you couldn't get me to pay attention in class. I always did just enough to pass. But after high school, I started applying myself and became an 'A' student.

    • Lawrence: (on co-star Tom Pelphrey) That dude's a beast. Tom Pelphrey is every actor's favorite actor; it could just be a five-line scene, but he'll give you everything he's got.

    • Lawrence: (on his girlfriend) I went to school with her, and we've been together going on three years. She loves that I have money now so that we can go out and do stuff!
