Even though I was trained in play writing and screenwriting, when I sat down to write a comic book for the first time, Alan Moore was first and foremost in my mind.

I found reading Alan Bennett striking because you have this sudden flash of recognition when you read about a boy who has intellectual interests utterly different from his parents.

My friendship with the great actor and director Alan Rickman did not have a particularly auspicious start.
When I played Robin Hood, I knew the great role was Alan Rickman’s and it didn’t bother me. I always think that leading actors should be called the best supporting actors.

Off the top of my head, Alan Cumming was probably my biggest inspiration, as an actor and as a queer person.
I thought I knew who Alan Turing was. I’ve always loved history, and I was actually shocked by how little I actually knew. I was amazed this wasn’t common knowledge. Why wasn’t he on the front covers of my history books? He’s one of the great thinkers of the last century, and he was sort of pushed into the shadows.
My relationship with Alan Shatter is a professional relationship: obviously worked with him over the years, complimented him for his work as a reforming minister, and move on.
I don’t know how to speak to celebrities. Every time I talk to Alan Menken, I say something stupid and I have to apologize.
Among tech-minded kids, I think Alan Turing was a tremendous inspiration. He was a guy that was so different than the people around him. He was an outsider in his own time, but because he was an outsider is precisely why he was able to accomplish things nobody thought was possible.
I’d be interested to read Gull’s paper on it, and I wish Alan would put it in somewhere. It gives him a relevance to our times, which he doesn’t otherwise have. Gull, I mean, not Alan.

I was into Alan Moore and Frank Miller. I was a teenager when all those books where coming out for the first time – ‘Watchmen,’ ‘V for Vendetta.’ It was a great time to get into comics.
I am a rereader. Quality is variety if you wait long enough. Barthes, Baudelaire, Benjamin, Celine, Duras, Faulkner, Fitzgerald, Melville: There is so much to revisit. ‘Ingrid Caven,’ by Jean–Jacques Schuhl, is always in rotation. I used to read ‘Morvern Callar,’ by Alan Warner, every year – I adored that book.

Chuck Berry‘s ‘Maybellene’ hit the airwaves at about the time Alan Freed got to New York, and it was definitely a song I really loved and related to.

I had so many offers after ‘True Blood’ for things that were someone in the same vein, but nowhere near Alan Ball’s vision. Or something that was over-the-top and fantastical. And I’ve always wanted to play the regular, working-class mom, and I’ve never really had the chance to do that.
