The 26-year-old actor recently opened up about taking on such an iconic role.
“I was forced into the head space that was deeply emotional and spiritual, where I just was trying to honor this guy and trying to also evoke him and live a little bit like he was,” he told the Wall Street Journal. “I mean trust me, I was well aware of the task ahead of me. It was a tall mountain to climb, but you’ve got to start climbing and just do it.”
