Obviously we’re looking forward to seeing Brenton Thwaites in full costume in the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, but check out how cute he looks in a fedora!
The actor graced the cover of At Large Magazine, Issue 8, on newsstands March 23. Here’s what he had to say:
On working with Johnny Depp: “Johnny was one of my favorite actors – still is. Our conversations were usually along the lines of his opinions about certain guitars; we both have a pretty big passion for guitars. And he was about to go off with the Hollywood Vampires, his group with Alice Cooper and Joe Perry from Aerosmith. But there were a few things I was asking Johnny in terms of the acting books he’d studied, the actors he admired as a kid. He was pretty open to me about all that stuff. He has such a great energy. He’s so positive. And in between ‘acting’ and ‘cut,’ he’s amazing.”
On his Pirates of the Caribbean 5 role: “I play a young soldier in the Royal Navy called Henry. He makes an unlikely alliance with Jack Sparrow and Carina Smyth, who’s played by Kaya Scodelario, in order to find a certain treasure they’re all looking for; something that will help each of their individual causes and all of their problems.”
On his relationship with girlfriend Chloe Pacey and their 12-month-old daughter Birdie: “Our kid loves traveling as much as I do – she cries when she’s not on a plane. We’re kind of one big happy traveling trio. The trick will be when she’s 4 or 5: to see what’s going on later in my career, where we’re going to raise her, where we’re going to live.”
