The 19-year-old Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children star opened up about the film and his career. Check it:
On how he got involved with the film: “As soon as I heard that Tim Burton was at the helm of it I really wanted to be a part of the project — I’ve always loved his stuff.”
On his character: “My character, Jacob, is a regular boy who is taken by a girl into this totally alien universe filled with kids with special powers. So the movie really suited Tim’s gothic-inspired way of filmmaking.”
On transforming into new characters: “With each character you play you’re acquiring new skills and meeting new people and learning new things — you figure out how to adapt and just go with it.”
