  • "People’s attitude seems to be that if you don’t have a television, you’re not connected to reality – somehow you’re not in reality. It’s quite interesting, because I suspect that possibly it’s the reverse." - Jodhi May
  • "Television is a very highly constructed, and edited, and censored, and tailored, and marketed reality. But I’m not judgemental about it. I don’t have anything against television. I just personally don’t feel curious." - Jodhi May
  • "When I finish a job, I surrender it completely. I have to, because after that, it really is out of my hands." - Jodhi May
  • "I simply loved education. I mean, I always loved acting as well. It really was a major passion for me, but one I felt I could only fully explore once I'd completed my degree." - Jodhi May
