Formerly of the RADA and Royal Shakespeare Company, British leading man Ben Cross made an impressive film debut as Olympic athlete Harold Abrahams in Chariots of Fire (1981). Cross' participation in this Oscar-winning film immediately opened up new professional doors and increased his asking price. But he was not about to blindly capitalize on his new fame; he turned down 100,000 dollars to play Prince Charles in a made-for-TV movie in favor of appearing for a comparative pittance in a BBC miniseries adaptation of A.J. Cronin's The Citadel. He has continued to select film, stage, and TV roles on the basis of quality rather than monetary potential. One exception may be Cross' acceptance of the role of centuries-old vampire Barnabas Collins in the failed 1991 revival of the cult-favorite TV series Dark Shadows.

Harold Abrahams says: If I can't win, I won't run!

Sybil Gordon says: If you won't run, you can't win.

Sarek says: Speak your mind Spock.

Spock says: That would be unwise.

Sarek says: What is necessary is never unwise.

Harold Abrahams says: Aubrey, I've known the fear of losing but now I am almost too frightened to win.

Sarek says: Spock, you are fully capable of deciding your own destiny. The question you face is: which path will you choose? This is something only you can decide.
