The 16-year-old actor chatted with the new glossy about the “weird” parts he’s offered, vampire movies and voicing the title character in ParaNorman. Check it:
On booking the ‘weird’ parts: “I like it, because they’re usually quiet, with a lot going on inside. So the acting is not all in the talking. It’s more subtle.”
On ParaNorman: “ParaNorman was perfect for me! It was comedy, stop-motion, everything! I just saw it. It’s really funny, but then in the end everything changes. I won’t spoil it for you. I audition for everything, I always audition for random stuff, but I always tend to get the dramatic roles. But people know I’m funny when they get to know me.”
On vampire movies: “I actually really like Twilight! I saw a couple of them, I think I saw the third one and I really liked it. But Let Me In was more deep, it was less about the vampire stuff and more about kids growing up.”
