The 21-year-old actress opened up to TribecaFilm.com about what it was like on set, why she wanted to be in the film, and more. Check it:
On taking on the role: “It was a lot of fun. For me, honestly it was actually the same as making an independent film in many ways. At the end of the day when you’re on set and you’re working; it doesn’t matter what environment you’re in. The work should still be of the same quality, and you should still put as much of yourself into it as you would anywhere else. But obviously there are nice positives – you get a lot more free food, which I really like. [laughs] There was chocolate all the time and cookies and stuff, which I thought was amazing.”
On the set: “The set was a great atmosphere, and the director, Wes Ball, was really fond of the idea of making this film. His energy just fueled you to work harder, and that’s important. I didn’t find the creative side of the project to be compromised by the money and the studio. Everyone behind The Maze Runner just wanted to make a really good, high quality film. And I think we achieved that. I had such a wonderful experience, much better than what I expected to be honest.”
On social media: “I try to keep my Twitter as personal as possible, so I don’t tend to tweet the interviews or photo shoots. That wasn’t why I started it. I use Twitter more to just get the crazy thoughts out of my head and put them out into the world. Maybe someone will like them or whatever. I’ve tried to keep it more about me as a person than me as a professional, but a lot of people do use it that way as well.”
