Happy Birthday, Christopher Wood, born 5 November 1935
- Never lose faith in yourself. Never quit. Really enjoy what you are doing – it is the only reward you are guaranteed.
- Everyone was mad only some of them didn’t know it.
- An Oxford man walks down the street and thinks that he owns it, a Cambridge man walks down the street and doesn’t give a toss who owns it.
- I re-read several Fleming Bond’s in order to try and replicate the style. I wanted to do the man justice. I was writing a book not a film script. I hope it is more character-driven than the movie – which is obviously dominated by Bondian technical wizardry.
- It was always the same in my experience, the greatest libertines make the most suspicious fathers.
- One of the keys of writing a Bond-movie, is to do the same thing, just differently.
Christopher Wood is an English screenwriter and novelist.
