What Stephen Moyer says about Empathy:

“If you’d asked me if I believed in the paranormal this time last year I’d have said ‘no’. I was in America and I was pretty down, a friend of mine was dying and I wanted to be at home. I’d got a text message from the friend, but thought I’d read it later. When I got home I sat on my bed with my legs crossed and remembered the text message. […] It said, ‘When you read this you are going to be sat on your bed with your legs crossed, and this is what’s going on, and this is what you’ve got to do.’

“It’s what he told me to do that changed everything. And he’s a hod carrier!”

“I’m not like that in real life, so when I get the chance to punch a bit of air and let out a bit of steam, I love it.”
