Talk to us about your character Christian.

He’s one of the survivors that’s trying to save the world. He has a very strong character and doesn’t trust anyone. He’s not willing to back down without putting up a fight. It’s a very big opportunity that I had. He’s the troublemaker of the movie, I think. [Laughs]. When Mila’s character comes into the group, he’s the one that creates a tense atmosphere between all of them.

Would you say that you relate to him being a troublemaker?

[Laughs]. Not in the sense of being a troublemaker even though I do cause some trouble. I do think that I don’t trust anybody. I think in my life I’ve had experiences where I’ve learned not to trust anybody and really get to know people until I trust them. Sometimes I do have a strong character but I also like to be a hero. I like saving lives. At one point, I wanted to be a firefighter but thank god I ended up being an actor. [Laughs].

Maybe one day, you can do both.

I would love to one day.

What attracted you to the role of Christian?

First of all, the franchise. I already knew the franchise because I was a fan of it. I saw the movies before and then when they offered me the role, I didn’t have to think about it twice. I didn’t even care what kind of character I was playing in the movie; I saw a big opportunity for my career and I took it right away.

What was it like working with the rest of the cast?

It was fun! Mila is a great person. She is of course very talented as well as the rest of the cast. She’s also very humble. She is a very nice person that is always taking care of the people around her and making sure everyone is ok. She gave me a warm welcome and made sure that I felt at home. That made my job very easy.
