It Is What It Is
Trying New Things
I always feel the same with jobs. If you've been working on something for three years, it's probably going to be a year and a half of not working and not having a great time and having the blues until you come out the other side and that's what you have to deal with.
I've not lived anywhere for any permanent amount of time for about 12 years. I mean, I'm from Manchester. If someone ever says, where are you from, I say Manchester. I moved out of Manchester when I was 22 and went to New Zealand for nearly two and-a-half years; LA for two years and now I've been living in Hawaii for two years.
I was moving around so much that I had to make friends quite quickly as a kid. Every three years we would move to a new city, and I would have to be constantly impressing myself onto people immediately, because I knew I only had three years to be friends with them before I took off.
I bring sunshine into people's hearts just through my talking and my mind work.
If my house caught fire I would save myself and anyone in there and I would try and save all the diaries and letters that I have collected as everything else is replaceable. And I would sit on the lawn watching my house burn cherry red and record it in my diary.
I like to have a tidy kitchen but I am not too bothered about my room or living room etc. My theory is that when it's untidy I feel comfortable, like it feels lived in, and its only gonna get untidy if you tidy it so wait, wait, wait.
I've always had itching feet. I like being on the move every couple of years.
Life has a way of kicking you in the ass...or smearing chocolate on your bum.
Growing up, I liked Jerry of Tom and Jerry. He was the little guy who was more clever than the big guy even though he wasn't as strong. I identified with that going through school. I also like Mighty Mouse. I like the little guys who come through in the end.
I mean, theater acting for me is the true form. It's the real place where you learn, the place where you practice, the place where you can take risks and try things out, and I think what film acting is when you've perfected what you're doing and it's a polished piece of work, then you do it on film.
When I was a kid, we would travel to England in our car, from Germany, and listen to storybook tapes and one of them was The Hobbit. So we were aware of Bilbo and Gandalf and all that kind of stuff.
Just cos I'm an actor, there's a lot of other stuff that I really like to do. Definitely writing and things like that.
I do quite like all the screaming crowds. I'm a big fan of the ladies, so to have them come to me without any real effort is amazing.
I would like to be remembered as someone who could make people laugh. I would just like to be remembered really.
I'd love to play a gangster but I think people might say I looked a bit too young and cheeky to play a character who'd just blown someones head off!
I think deep down I've always wanted to be an actor. It was the one thing in school that I was undoubtedly enthusiastic about and good at. I coasted along being good at German, Geography, English and football but there wasn't anything that I could really call my thing, my niche.
I was kind of like the cheeky kid in school. Nothing too malicious...Nothing too nasty...I never really got into too many fights, but I was the practical joker.
Every experience I've had with fans has been positive. They politely ask questions and I try to answer as best I can.
College was a huge time for me to grow and try out new things. I mean, I guess I really started to embrace - by that point- being an individual.
Trying New Things quotes
My mom and dad just loved the fact that I fooled around. They just embraced it. They'd always kind of enjoy it, and they liked it when I made them laugh.
