I deeply respect literature and expect to gain insight from a book and to identify emotionally with its characters. I therefore avoid reading suspense novels or science fiction.
The literary trappings and moralizing of science fiction I find insufficiently compelling.
I first read science fiction in the old British Chum annual when I was about 12 years old.
It's great to be able to work on some science fiction. I love the genre.
When I first started drawing the earliest incarnation of 'Optic Nerve,' I hadn't even been on a date; I hadn't had a romantic relationship of any kind yet, so in a way, I was almost writing science fiction.
I was born in California, raised a vegetarian, and love science fiction, so don't tell me how I need to be in order to fit your standards.
I think the type of actor I am, I tend to play strong leading female characters. The shows I've been on happen to be science fiction genre.
I feel like science fiction is so much more mainstream now than it has been. And I feel like that's because technology has caught up with us.
NI love watching science fiction because I feel like when it's done well, it's not just monsters, but philosophy. Really good science fiction like, '2001,' for example, or the first 'Matrix.' But it takes someone who's got a brain and thinks in order to do really good science fiction.
I used to read science fiction a lot, and I still like science fiction when it is a model of how we really are and to see ourselves from another perspective.
