Maskell once noted,
“I was always fairly realistic about the fact that I’m not a matinee idol… “
He further added,
“I’m not going to be George Clooney, let’s be honest. I’ve set my ambitions fairly low, and I know actors better than me who have had to leave the business. Everything’s turned out far beyond how I thought it was going to. and I’ve got Ben Wheatley to thank for that.”
