"Qualities to make a good pirate are ignorance and persistence !"

Ian Mc Shane about his character blackbeard:

"Blackbeared is iconic. It was nice to play an evil character. But we don't call them evil characters, we call them complicated !"

 

About his previous films :

"There's lots a my films that I don't watch, and some of them that I can't recall of. But that's another story".
