The 27-year-old actor opened up about his internship on Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire and playing Liam on Pretty Little Liars. Check it:
On getting his start: The first time I really considered acting was when I was 15 years old. I randomly auditioned for this play, this amateur play in Geneva…I ended up getting the part. It was an amazing play and an amazing opportunity for me to be on stage.
On Harry Potter: I was able to get this [film] internship, I didn’t know at first that I was going to Harry Potter. I thought I was going to a random Warner Bros. movie and when I showed up on set I was like, ‘This is Harry Potter.’ It was amazing, the scale of it was awe-inspiring… To see these actors working and to see them having a good time, and getting to create these insane scenes, I [thought], this is the height of imagination.
On Liam: Liam comes in after this five year flash-forward…immediately what that did for me was that I didn’t have to know anything about the story. Liam is an assistant editor at this Boston publishing house. When we first see him, we see he’s working really closely with Ezra trying to get his [next book] published, and working really closely with Aria because she ends up working there too.
