I thought that ‘Twilight’ would be a kind of girl movie, but it was cool.
My dad teaches me. He teaches me everything. He’s been acting for over 30 years, so he knows a lot.
I’m always working with amazing people. They’re just kind of put in my path.
I’m based in L.A., mainly. I’m pretty much there a lot of the time doing work.
My favorite genre is comedy.
I haven’t done a lot of studio movies, but studio movies and independent films are always just as fun as each other.
In L.A., I live right across from Universal Studios.
I’ve been joking that ‘On the Road’ is the prequel to ‘The Road.’ I don’t know if that’s a very good joke.
‘Slow West’ is a film that I did with Michael Fassbender in New Zealand and Scotland. The director was John McLean. It’s a film set in the 1800s. I play a young Scottish boy brought up in the royal family. I fall in love with someone who works on our land.
The most important thing I have learned from the people I’ve worked with is that you have to love what you do. That passion will drive you anywhere you want to go.

I think ‘Paranorman’ was a great adventure.
I’m not really sure if I have anything that inspires me.
My friends in Australia, they grew up with me acting, so they’re used to it.

Interviews are fun, but I get nervous at red carpets.
In Australia, I can just say to my mom, ‘I’m going down the street.’ And I can walk around pretty much all the places I know.
I think I’ve been good at getting into lonely and troubled characters because, not to brag, but I’m the complete opposite in real life.
I think indie films have more of a fresh, experimental vibe about them, whereas studio films know what they want and can basically get it.
It’s kind of a Peter Pan thing: I want to stay a kid. I love it. But I guess you have to grow up someday. Everybody does.
You shouldn’t fight change. You should be absolutely open to change.
Vampires used to be like Dracula, and now they’re young teenage kids, so yeah, I like that.
I’ve got to write about my character every day. I’ve got to find out where he lives, what bus he catches to school, and stuff like that. You’ve got to know every little thing about him so when you do it, it feels natural.
