I like the laid-back ladies. Looks are stressed so much these days, and a lot of girls feel they need to do all of these weird and wonderful things to look good, and they really don’t. The best-looking girls don’t do anything; they just sort of know they’re beautiful, especially in jeans and a hoodie.
I like geography. I like to know where places are.
What twelve year old wouldn’t want to play an evil wizard?
I remember my first scene with Alan Rickman, and I was anxious because he is a slight ‘method’ actor; as soon as he is in his cloak, he walks and talks like Snape – it is quite terrifying. But I really wanted to talk to him because ‘Robin Hood’ was one of my favourite films.
I like to fish. Fishing is always a way of relaxing.
I used to have all the Goosebumps books as a kid too.
Whatever life throws at me I’ll take it and be grateful for it as well.
I like all films whether it’s dark or light, love, hate, whatever it is, I enjoy it.
I was cursed with age, really. You do that stupid thing at 12 years old when you say something and it kind of sticks with you for the rest of your life. So, I believe I said I wanted to be a fishery manager. In hindsight, I think acting could be a better route.
The idea of being famous is a lot better than the reality.
I really tried out for the part of Harry Potter, but they ended up picking me for the part of the enemy of Harry. Actually it is really fun playing the bad kid because it just has so many interesting qualities to it. And Daniel Radcliffe and I get along really well off set so...
I’m generally more and more in my comfort zone in the wild.
Yes I still enjoy playing him. He’s the best person to play isn’t he?
The only time I can really relax is up a tree or somewhere outside. I love being outside.
One thing that people keep on saying to me is that the wealth and the fame must have made up for missing out on my childhood. But the idea of money – putting a price on your childhood – is ridiculous. You will never get those years back and you can’t put a price on...
Everyone plays their own crucial part towards the film.
You can finish school as soon as you finish the GCSE’s.
And to me, fame is not a positive thing. The idea of being famous is a lot better than the reality. It’s fantastic when you go to premieres and people cheer you, but it’s not real. And it’s totally not my approach to get my name on a club door just because I can.
