  • Quotes

    • (on playing "Tintin", in the motion-capture movie by Steven Spielberg)
      Thomas: I wouldn't say I'm daunted, I'm quite excited, though I haven't really thought of it like that, though it's going to take two years post-production, so it's going to be a while before the public see it, I'll just deal with it when it happens.

    • Thomas: At school you're treated as a child and that's it. On a film set you're treated as an actor, as a better person, which sounds awful but it's true. Teachers are a higher authority in some ways. But I like that because it grounds me and I like my friends because they don't care and they know I've been filming and that's it, they don't care. And as soon as I start rambling on about it they tell me to shut up. And I like that because again that brings me back down and I don't want to get too far out there.

    • (on his part in "Doctor Who")
      Thomas: It was great fun to make, the people were excellent, and all the crew were like a big family as they had been doing it for so long; people had also come and gone so fast that they were used to having new people around and were very friendly. It was also the first role that I did as an adult so the first time that I had acted without having any chaperones or teachers.

    • Thomas: I find it weird the way people get so excited about celebrity. If my friends are on the phone, their friends will say: 'Is that kid from Love Actually there?' And the phone gets passed round and I have to speak to this stranger asking: 'Are you famous?' I don't know how to answer.

    I first saw him in the 2002 movie "Bobbi's Girl" with Bernadette Peters and then again in "Nanny McPhee". When I saw him in Dr. Who I thought maybe he was another Time Lord, but either way it's nice to see him popping up here and there.
  • Is this guy everywhere?

    Thomas Sangster is a great actor. Seeing him in Doctor Who I recognised him from so many places, and only then realised how many things I have seen him in.

    Feather Boy, Stig of the Dump, Love Actually - he's a fantastic actor. He deserves the credit for everything he's done, especially Feather Boy, which he did great justice to. Personally I like most of his characters, but there has to be a reason, an underlying talent. And there is. He brings light to everything he does and is enjoyable to watch. Plus he's also good-looking.moreless
