― Chris Hadfield

― Humphrey Lyttelton

“When I read the script for ‘90210,’ I thought, ‘Boy, this is very superficial,’ and it was.

― Jo Brand

“It was understood that when I left to do the pilot that I wasn’t coming back.”

― Johnny Galecki

“When you make a pilot, you’ve never seen the show before; you don’t know what it is.”

― Jonathan Krisel

― Jonathan Winters

“JJ Abrams is definitely a guy that when he calls, you want to answer. He’s incredibly focused. When he was shooting the pilot on ‘Lost,’ we’d do a take and he’d go back to his tent and be working on the first episodes of ‘Lost’ as well as the cliffhanger for the eighth season of ‘Alias.’ He’s an incredible multitasker.”

― Jorge Garcia

“Before we shot the pilot, I knew what ‘Dallas’ was, but I actually was too young to remember the details of the show. I didn’t have my hands on the DVDs, so I YouTubed everything I could of J.R.”

― Josh Henderson

― Josh Holloway

“Working in MTV’s development team, my days would consist of pitches and deciding which concepts we wanted to buy. We would then develop those into a pilot. Very few ended up making it to a full series, but if they did, I would manage the project alongside the show’s creators.”

― Julia Hartz

“I had seen a Pfizer’s pilot plant in 1965 and decided that, ‘I’ll build a Pfizer.’ If not Pfizer, I have built Dr Reddy’s, which is no less respectable.”

― Kathryn Bigelow

“I spent one semester in Air Force ROTC, as I wanted to be a pilot.”

― Katie Jacobs Stanton

“I’m one of the only actresses in Los Angeles who has never waited tables – yet – and I’m so terrible at holding trays. When we shot the ‘Vampire Diaries’ pilot, I totally spilled water all down Nina Dobrev, and she had to get her hair and make-up redone.”

― Kayla Ewell

“I was fortunate enough to book a pilot, and we just got picked up for a midseason replacement for ABC. It’s called ‘Romantically Challenged,’ and I’m going to be playing Alyssa Milano’s little sister. The other actor in it is Kyle Bornheimer from ‘Worst Week’ – he’s hilarious.”

― Melinda Clarke

“With ‘Twilight,’ you have these massive tomes that you have to condense. With ‘Penoza,’ we had an eight episode Dutch series that, just for the pilot alone, I condensed three episodes. So, there’s a lot of filling in and a ton of invention that has to happen to fill out eight episodes.”

― Melissa Rosenberg

― Nikolaj Coster-Waldau

“I was in the pilot for Spinal Tap before it was a movie.”

― Nina Blackwood

“I worked in television; I’m the Failed Pilot Queen, I’ve done so many television shows, pilots, theater … when you do it for so long, I’m telling you, you get to the point where it becomes varied because you take what’s available for a number of reasons. It’s just an occupational hazard.”

― Viola Davis
