I actually want to go out and try to date girls. I mean, ones who want to be on camera.
That’s what happens in three-dimensional animation, you tell the computer what the subject is like and the computer can figure what it would look like from any camera’s point of view.
Being in front of the camera was very liberating for me.
I think people should know that it takes a lot of effort to look the way we do in front of the camera, and it is not hunky-dory always.
When there’s film rolling through the camera, there’s a heightened awareness of the importance of that moment, from the actors and the crew. It creates a much more old-school respectful atmosphere for the process.
Nowadays when you’re shooting HD people will walk in front of the camera, it can just be rolling all the time – nobody cares.
Che Mills is a great fighter, and a worthy opponent. Just because he hasn’t been seen in front of the camera that many times doesn’t mean he’s not dangerous or a great martial artist.
But let me be honest, I would rather wear a hazmat suit on holiday than get caught by a camera in swimwear.
I’ve always had to drag myself to fancy parties and steel myself to walk into a crowded room. The pop of the red carpet camera bulbs might look like fun, but I make a swift dash up that celebrity catwalk, worrying about whether the photographers have caught an unflattering angle or a gust of wind will whisk away my fake ponytail.
I am a product of theatre and whatever I learned there helped me emote in front of the camera.
I never know which camera is on me when I’m dancing and the director picks the shot he likes but it usually isn’t the best shot for showing the steps I want the audience to see.
When I’m working on a picture, I get up at 6 o’clock in the morning, report to the sound stage for rehearsals at 8, then appear before the camera from 9 to 6. I dread going to lunch, because during that hour my muscles get cold and I have to warm them up again. Standing still is the most miserable thing a dancer has to do.
I went for officer training to be a fighter pilot, but never got past the aptitude test. So I decided to put on makeup and ponce about in front of a camera.
Working behind the camera was always fun for me.
If I enter a set, I am all over the place and be in my zone once the camera is on.
You look tight on camera, it sees it. The camera can see everything.
People need to remember that a lot of my growing up was done on camera.
On ‘The Bachelor’ and ‘The Bachelorette,’ you are having a relationship – even though it’s short and on camera – and with that comes many things, including intimacy.
Everyone has days where they wake up and feel like poo and don’t want to see people, let alone be on camera.
Every time I go in front of the camera, I have this fear of ‘Oh my God, how am I going to tackle this? The director is going to say ‘action’ and I’m going to just keep standing there; I won’t know what to do.’ That’s a constant fear I have as an actor.
Most of the telly I do only has one camera and the reason you have to cook it twice is you have a close-up, so you see what is happening really close up and then you have a wide shot, which is like standing back so you see the whole fish and the kitchen and, like it or not, you have to do it twice.
Nigel Lythgoe famously said that I was fat on national TV. He did apologise for that – not on camera, but he did apologise.
I would say a lot of people think I’m too serious at times, but actually I feel like I’m the opposite away from the camera and everything. I feel like I have a good time, but you rarely see pictures of me in the garage with a smile on my face, even though I am happy. I guess I just don’t always show it.
Whenever I see a camera, I just want to perform for some reason. If I was getting paid for it or not, I would still be posting random videos of me on the Internet.
