Love Your Got

I don't understand actors who complain when they get work. 'I'm working too much. I've got to get up too early ...' Isn't this the point? There's somebody right now who's bussing tables who would love your problems.

- Aldis Hodge

Shame Big Been

A lot of people are afraid of the idea of enslavement, and that's because it's tied to so much shame and guilt... That is the big elephant in the room, but a part of why we're afraid to attack that subject matter is because of the way we've been taught about it.

- Aldis Hodge

Over Stories Gotten

I can literally count on one hand how many slave stories have gotten notoriety over the past few years.

- Aldis Hodge

Doing Deal Same Thing

A new setting is amazing cause it's new for the team, and it's new for our characters. It's a breakaway from the normal deal. You get so tired, locked into a show for so many years. You get used to doing the same thing. A little shake-up and change is good.

- Aldis Hodge

I Am Find Lot

I am fortunate enough to find opportunities that have a lot of presence.

- Aldis Hodge

Research Alive Him

For someone like MC Ren, who is still alive and I can go talk to, that's more of a niche challenge because I do have to match his energy, and I do have to pay homage to who he is as a person, but that just comes with research. And the difference there is I can do the research there right on the spot. I can just go ask him.

Forward Built Am

Every single step, although I couldn't see it, was a step forward and built to where I am now.

Impression Going Footprint

Every job you do, somebody's looking at it. You're leaving an impression on somebody. What is going to be your footprint?

- Aldis Hodge

Through Been Trained

For me personally, the way I've been trained, just through life experience - the harder something is, the harder you have to work for it, the more worthwhile it is, and you just have to know that going in.

- Aldis Hodge

Like Everybody Them

Everybody wants somebody to look up to that looks like them so they can truly believe in that reality for themselves.

- Aldis Hodge

Young Breaks Too

I don't believe in breaks. Not yet. I'm too young.

- Aldis Hodge

Like Give Dean

As far as my contribution to this industry, I want to be like Dean Devlin, John Rogers, and Chris Downey. I want to give people jobs and put them on great shows. I want to create careers for people.

- Aldis Hodge

Feel Searching Been

I feel Noah has been alone for the majority of his life and inherently searching for a family, even though he may not express that outwardly. But his encounter with Rosalee gave him hope in finding someone who thinks like him.

- Aldis Hodge

Doing Used Materialize

I came out of the womb drawing on everything; I used to draw on my mother's white furniture and her white walls with her red lipstick and my pencils. Little did she know that would later materialize into me doing what I do now - I'm a painter as well and a micromechanical engineer.

- Aldis Hodge

Always Reason Some

For some reason, I think that I'm not doing enough work. People are like, 'You're on a series right now,' but I'm always like, 'Yeah, but I can do more!'

- Aldis Hodge

Business Politics May

I'm constantly looking for ways to learn and elevate your craft, patience for yourself, and patience for this business. It's not a fair business. You may be great, but it may take years for someone to notice what you're capable of because of politics.

- Aldis Hodge

Want Person Ever

You don't ever want to seem less than a person.

- Aldis Hodge

Learn Always Going

I've always known I wanted to be in design somehow. It was going to be architecture, but I would've had to quit acting for it. I realized with horology, I could learn at my own pace.

- Aldis Hodge

Die Awesome Big

'Die Hard' was a really awesome experience, but I was too young to understand what a big film it was.

- Aldis Hodge

Very Different Characters

As far as playing different characters within the character, I think that's fun. Very rarely, on TV, do you get to do that on such a regular basis.
