Some Facts
Loves new smells. Richard believes that smells evoke memories, so he loves to smell new books, cars, sofas, people.
Played the Doctor in a line of BBC animated Doctor Who (1963) adventures showcased on the Internet.
According to his Wah-Wah Diaries, he was offered a major role in the remake of Flight of the Phoenix (2004).
The initial E in his name came about because there was already someone registered with Equity as Richard Grant. Richard was born Richard Grant Esterhuysen. So with permission of the other Richard Grant and Equity, he added the E. to his name.
His father was the last minister of education in the British colony of Swaziland before independence in 1968.
Personal Quotes
You finish a movie and you think, there, you've done it really well, or best you can. But if you watch it, you see it was just bollocks. You have to look at the discrepancy between what you hoped and imagined and the reality of yourself and all your shortcomings. You only see your own failure. I'd rather stick with the first idea--just have the experience of working--and leave it at that. You've got to protect the old bravado.

[on Wah-Wah (2005)] Because it took so long writing it, directing it, and getting it out in the cinema, it was very satisfying to do. Being able to address my pretty dysfunctional childhood from the safety of middle age proved to be a very rewarding experience.

It's a chicken-and-egg situation: You've got to get name actors in order to get the finance, and in order to get the name actors you've got to bullshit that you've got the finance, while all the time you feel the whole thing could just unravel, the wheels come off the pram, everything conspires to make you sink into a pit of self-pity and despair.

What is there now? Famous people running away from explosions. That's it. They call it production values. Audiences will queue round the block to see an unimaginably highly paid film star running away from a fantastically expensive explosion. They think it's their money's worth. I despair that's what people have to do.

When I see actors talking about world peace, it makes my sphincter weak. There is a difference between Emma Thompson talking about a world catastrophe and--God!--Demi Moore talking about it. Goldie Hawn talking about the elephants has a different impact than Joanna Lumley. Sometimes Hollywood doesn't seem a million miles from a Miss World contest. I just don't have strong enough mental furniture to withstand it.
