An artist can go paint, and a writer can go write, but an actor needs to get hired, needs somebody to say, ‘Here, come and do this,’ That’s the hard part.

Brimstone was great. That was another occasion when they called me in to do the pilot and it turned into a regular job, which made me quite happy. It was another really good experience and we were all so surprised when they pulled the plug on it.

I graduated from high school in ’62 and I didn’t know any people who were gay. I’m sure there were people, but I didn’t know any. For years and years, I guess, I was very uptight about being a gay actor. I thought it would make me less hirable.

John Glover

I guess that’s a flaw in my career, that I like to work too much.

I had a big part of my life in the theater in Philadelphia. Philadelphia’s changed, but I love it.

John Glover

I think the reason I’m an actor is the joy I find from escaping and going to be somebody else. That’s what I have fun doing.

John Glover

I think we all have madness in us, it’s just that I’ve realized mine and found a way to let it out.

John Glover

I want to keep – this seems so corny – I want to keep growing as an artist.

John Glover

I was terrified of being a teacher. To stand in front of a classroom, the responsibility is boggling. Imagine! Standing in front of people!

John Glover

I wonder why I keep playing such intelligent people?

John Glover

I would like to be able to be both a film actor and a stage actor – to be an American actor in the style of a lot the English actors who do films. They are these wonderful actors who can do everything.

In open range fires it is about picking a spot and hoping it is the right location. At the head of the fire you have to worry about wind and humidity and a number of other factors.

John Glover

It is difficult to determine the cause of grass fires. There is usually nothing left behind when we get there, like a cigarette or a gas can, for us to determine what started it.

John Glover

Luck has had a great deal to do with my career.

John Glover

Putting your hands in the earth is very grounding, if you’ll excuse the pun.

John Glover

There are parts of me that I keep secret even from myself. I have demons and I’d love to be able to healthily look at the demons and still be a wonderful actor and not feel I need them to create.

John Glover

There’s more depth to Lionel. What I am finding so interesting about playing him is there’s all these different layers. I prefer playing Lionel because he’s a human being.

John Glover

Welding torches, cutting torches and any activity producing a flame outside is prohibited. Any open flame is discouraged.

John Glover

When I first arrived in Los Angeles I became a little bogged down in the whole success thing. Now I’m at a place in my life and career where I just want to work. It’s what I do and it makes me very happy.
