Every movie has its uniqueness. You just do your best and go with it.
I almost failed drama at school. I hated it. It was all about the history of theatre.
I haven't had the whole 'famous' thing happen to me yet, and I hope I never will. I like to sneak away in the corners and hide a lot.
Growing up, I was always adamant that I would never do 'Home and Away' or 'Neighbours,' because as an actor you want to set your path as that serious kind of actor.
When I'm not acting, I'm at the beach. I like to spend a lot of time in the water, surfing.
I thought Leonardo DiCaprio was amazing in Baz Luhrmann's 'Romeo and Juliet.'
If I read a script and I like it, there's nothing that will stop me from trying to be in that movie.
In Australia, we cling on to whatever culture we have. We're such a multicultural country.
In 'The Giver,' I play a character called Jonas who is a member of this community called Changeless. In this community, everyone is kept at bay emotionally and physically. They receive an injection every morning to control them from feeling things like love and pain and all natural emotions.
I guess my break in America came a little too early. It would've been nice to have a few more years to find out what I'm like as an actor without a camera on my face.
When I was 16 years old, I joined a drama group called North Queensland Academy of Dramatic Art under a woman called Maggie Shephard-King. She inspired me to audition for the role of Romeo in 'Romeo and Juliet.'
My long-term plans are just to get as much experience as I can in Australia and try to make my own films.
I went to college at QUT: Queensland University of Technology. I studied for a Bachelors in finance and acting.
My first job on the screen was 'Sea Patrol,' and that was quite intense, but I guess my first big break was 'SLiDE.'
I studied drama at the Queensland University of Technology, which was amazing. I can't speak highly enough of that school.
