CS: What did you learn from working with Michael Fassbender? And he seems like the perfect actor to do Westerns, so you wonder why he hasn’t done more.
Smit-McPhee: Oh, man, so perfect! And he’s a great guy. He’s so down to earth, and he doesn’t mean to, but he just keeps things so lively on set and happy. That’s because he’s really a kid at heart, and I think he has a huge passion for what he does, but he just likes to fun. He does things with a really great energy. That actually just helped every day. It keeps you moving forward when you’re on a project and you’re shooting scenes out of place. It’s just good to have someone with you in that state of mind.
