Rory Cochrane’s quotes

When you’re doing that TV thing, you’re doing the same thing for years and years. You can fall into bad habits as an actor and I think it can take a toll on your ability to act, which I think is scary.

I didn’t really know exactly the point where I wanted to be an actor. But I know at this point, because I never went to college, I don’t really have anything to fall back on.

I try not to think about negative thoughts and possibilities and disaster and things like that.

I do not regret the things I’ve done, but those I did not do.
