Michael Crawford Quotes:

Cornelius Hackl: I've lost everything: my job, my future, everything people *think* is important, but I don't care - because even if I have to dig ditches for the rest of my life, I shall be a ditch-digger who once had a wonderful day.

Cornelius Hackl: Look, I'm dancing!
[carelessly backs into a chair and falls]
Cornelius Hackl: Uh, I was.

Michael Crawford Facts
Early in his career, he performed in the Shakespearean play, Coriolanus in the role of the Second Citizen and Second Serving Man. Interestingly enough, Gerard Butler, who played the phantom in The Phantom of the Opera (2004), also performed in the same play as a young man in the same role.

He made his film debut at the tender age of 15 in the British children's film, "Soapbox Derby" for the Children's Film Foundation. He also did his very first stunt work in this film, diving off into the River Thames to rescue a boy from drowning. He later had to have his stomach pumped to get rid of the filthy water from the Thames.

As the deformed phantom, in Andrew Lloyd Webber's "The Phantom of the Opera" he earned 7 1/2% of the takings.
