3D, the ever-changing 3D. It’s great. It’s been really interesting. My family came to the set a few times, and I see them with their 3D glasses on. It’s lovely to have them there and be a part of it, and see the magic that we’re playing with, because it really is incomprehensible until you see it on a 3D screen.
There is a lot of hype about drama school, I think. If you’re an actor in England, that’s just the way to get into it but I’ve been so incredibly lucky in that I was brought up in to it. I still might go to drama school, if I wanted to do theater work, definitely. It’s a completely different type of training.
To know about the movie [jack the giant Slayer], wow. It’s an adventure, there are so many special effects flying around. It’s going to be really fun, definitely. I think there’s something there for the whole family. There is something you can really enjoy, and I think it’s going to be a really fun, family film. I’m really excited.
It’s hard work. It’s really hard work, but it’s really interesting. We have this camera, I think it’s called a SimulCam, and when you play it back, you can see the giant in the scene you just shot. It’s incredible. You’re reacting to a tennis ball that’s way up there, then when you watch it, it’s this huge giant’s face on it. Wow. That’s cool. I just can’t wait to see it when it’s all edited together and the special effects are all crystal clear. It’s going to be, hopefully, amazing.
The intimate conversations have its moments, because you have to sell the characters, because there is so much going on. It’s so easy to get lost in the special effects and forget about the performances. The dialogue scenes have been great. It’s been great working with Bryan and the writers to find where we’re going and what’s the story. Yeah, it’s been really, really interesting.
