Can you tell me when did you begin as an actor? Which was your debut? And how did all this happen?
I started as an actor when I was 9. My mom was an actress so I just kept harassing her to take me to see her agent and finally she relented. I landed my first acting job when I went for my first audition, it was an Harry Potter commercial.
Who are your role models as an actor? Which are the people you admire?
I admire any actor who works hard on his craft. Leonardo Di Caprio is hugely inspirational, as is Johnny Depp. They have both stayed true to who they are as actors and also true to who they are as people.
Which has been your best experience so far as an actor?
That’s a difficult question and impossible to answer. I take something special from each experience.
Since my blog is about style, which v.i.p do you think has a cool style?
Ryan Gosling has great style and combines a cool vibe with elegance. So does Brad Pitt. I admire both these guys.
What’s your personal definition of elegance? Which is your everyday style?
I like clothes that are well made and have an edge.
And you most treasured item in your wardrobe?
As far as a most treasured item…it has to be my leather jacket.
Tell me something about your role in ‘The Hunger games’? Have you read the books before shooting? What did you like about your role?
Cato is a bit misunderstood. Although he is a hard core killer in the arena, you do get to see more of a human side to him in his final moments. He is athletic, skilled and a fierce contender.
I read all the books before shooting. I was hooked immediately.
What have you learned on this set? And what do you think will be interesting for the public?
I learned hand to hand combat and sword fighting which were both taught to me by a Navy Seal. That was pretty cool. I am a really active guy so I loved the training.
Dreams for the future?
I hope to be acting for a long time to come.
