If the sun were to explode, you wouldn’t even know about it for 8 minutes because that’s how long it takes for light to travel to us. For eight minutes the world would still be bright and it would still feel warm. It was a year since my dad died and I could feel my 8 minutes with him were running out.
“There are more people alive now than have died in all of human history, but the number of dead people is increasing. One day, there isn’t going to be any room to bury anyone anymore. So, what about skyscrapers for dead people, that are built down. They could be underneath the skyscrapers for living people, that are built up. We could bury people 100 floors down. And a whole dead world could be underneath the living one.”
shit. stories keep getting better each year. really all these actors
(boys and girls) need to get some well deserved recognition… for their
bravery, their craft and their amazing choices. they don’t just
entertain but break our hearts and then put them back together… well,
sometimes. here are my choices for this year. pure beauty.
“My dad told me that New York once had a Sixth Borough that floated away. They tried to save it, but they couldn’t and it’s never coming back. As much as I want him to, my dad is never coming back. And I thought I couldn’t live without him, but now I know I can. I think that would make my dad proud, which is all I ever wanted.”

-In the film Rush you play a racing driver, is driving also a passion for you?
I like cars alot, the fast variety but what is more important is a car with style. That is more important than the registration plate.
-What cars do you think have style ?
Mine ! I drive a 20 year old Alfa GTV. I love it, the design is great and not superfluous. It still has an orginal driving feel. For me, a car is a design object, to make life more beautiful. It should not be ostentatious which maybe why I like older models.
-What is the best soundtrack for a car journey?
A listening book or german radio, that way I can relax
-Have you ever had to be towed ?
Since I drive a fairly old car. I have had to be rescued. For me the ADAC, Is one of the more practical inventions.
-Your favourite dream road ?
The San Bernardino Pass. That is a great stretch.
-Your first memory of a road trip?
I learnt to drive in the USA. My first trip was in an old audi to Niagara Falls.
-You lived for two years in London where they drive on the left?
In London it is quite bad traffic for a car. The fastest form of transport is a bike. At first it was difficult adapting but eventually I adapted relatively well.
-You play in the successful series, Game of Thrones, the role of Jaqen H'ghar who can wear different faces, which superpower would you like to have?
To be invisible from time to time,
One could live in peace and quiet and could observe things which one would not otherwise learn.
-In July starts the 7th season of the Fantasy series in the fictional medieval world with kings, intrigue and mystery. Tell us how it goes on, naturally it will stay with us as a secret !
The story goes on everything else I can not say (laughs)
