He’s a real eccentric. He’s a genuine eccentric. I’ve never been to his house but I would love to go because it just sounds like it’s full of the most magical, wonderful, and weird things. He has llamas and miniature pigs and he’s bought a hovercraft and he has a cow on one of his roofs of his house in London and he bought an ice cream van that genuinely works. And it’s funny because he’s this very quiet guy but kind of just loves crazy stuff.
I think when you take away all, like, the premieres and press stuff and all the special effects, then you just come down to the fact that it’s all about acting, and I think that has been the best bit for me.
I had to learn as I went and make my own mistakes. I went from being totally unknown and never acting professionally to being in a major movie and being very famous. It all happened so quickly, I didn’t have any time to work things out. It’s been pretty scary at times.
