(talking about his childhood in Samoa) "the Samoans are a huge, huge black people and I was a tiny, tiny orange child. They'd come up and rub my head and laugh in amusement. It made me feel good. So I didn't get a complex."
(on having been asked to play Bond) "I don't know where that came from," he laughs. "I mean, Christ, there was enough fuss about [Daniel Craig] being blond. Can you imagine if they'd given it to a ginger? There'd be assassination plots."
