I’m in my own fantasy team as well, so there’s quite a bit of pressure on it.
– Harry Kane
What I personally gravitate toward tends to be fantasy, medium dark – not too dark – fairy tales and sci fi. Stop-motion takes something on the page that’s really dark and adds a little sweetness to it, a living toys realm.
– Henry Selick
The 370-year-old antique shop Trifles and Folly is the heart of ‘Deadly Curiosities,’ my new urban fantasy novel from Solaris Books.
– Gail Z. Martin

– Godfried Danneels
The idea of a film staying in theaters for a year is something of a fantasy today.
– Henry Thomas
I only like luxury fashion. You have to decide where you stand. I like well-made, authentic clothes, well-crafted tailoring. I also like the dream and fantasy of luxury, the exception and rarity of it. I have no interest at all in fast retail. It is ambiguous.
– Hedi Slimane
An Olympic gold medal is something that almost seems like a fantasy. Yes, of course I want it, since I was a little kid, before I even knew what the World Cup tour was.
– Hannah Kearney
My story reflexes come less from fantasy or horror than from the darker sort of psychological thriller – not as plot-driven as most, rather more mood-driven. My interest in the supernatural is a complication – though I am less interested in ghosts than in people who see ghosts.
– Graham Joyce
Courts are supposed to be places of reason. But this, of course, is a fantasy. I mean, there is reason being used as a technique. But courts, in fact, are baths of emotions.
– Helen Garner
Fantasy gets a mixed reception – a lot of fantasy is formulaic but most of the award-winning fantasy on the contrary tends to be the stuff at the edges of the genre, rather than swimming in the middle.
I’ve always been a fan of sci-fi, fantasy, and horror. I like working with larger-than-life characters in fascinating worlds – places where the rules are different.
– Gale Anne Hurd
I think that the way of bringing realism into fantasy is to treat it as the commonplace.
– Grant Bowler
My first airplane trip was to Paris. I had this fantasy that I would become a model, and I did!

– James Cameron
I think it’s very much a men’s thing to be able to have that fantasy to kill the beast.
– Izabella Scorupco
My feeling is that writing Fantasy should be harder – not easier – than writing any other kind of fiction.

Ridding the world of poverty is, of course, a fantasy.

Too many younger artists, critics, and curators are fetishizing the sixties, transforming the period into a deformed cult, a fantasy religion, a hip brand, and a crippling disease.
– Jerry Saltz
Perhaps fantasy offers imaginative escapism more than other genres.
– Jasper Fforde
I never studied writing, but I’d always been a reader and had a secret fantasy about being a writer.
– Jon Krakauer
The Olympics is an imperfect interregnum, the parade of nations a fantasy about a peace never won. It offers little relief from strife and no harbor from terror.
– Jill Lepore
The thing about fantasy – there are certain things you just don’t do in fantasy.
– J. K. Rowling
I imagined my fantasy co-author would look like Miranda Kerr, but have the intellect and comedic timing of Liz Lemon.
– Judy Greer
I’ve always felt that ‘X-Men’ was about something serious. It wasn’t just fantasy.
– Ian Mckellen
From ‘Trainspotting’ to ‘Acid House,’ I moved from urban realism into fantasy.
– Irvine Welsh
Acting is not about anything romantic, not even fantasy, although you do create fantasy.
– James Earl Jones
Invented languages have often been created in tandem with entire invented universes, and most conlangers come to their craft by way of fantasy and science fiction.
– Joshua Foer
A revival of ‘Of Mice and Men’ would have seemed out of place in years of Reaganomics, Donald Trump and Michael Milken, a time when Rambo supplied millions of filmgoers with a fantasy that masked what was really going on in their lives.
