Your new movie Slapface - in a few words, what is it about, and what can you tell us about your character in it?


It is about a boy who meets a monster, who protects the boy, and a father who doesn’t know what the boy is talking about. I am that boy. I play an extremely creative and intelligent child who has not lived the best life. The kid is confident, though!


How did you prepare for your role, and to what extent could you identify with the character and the situation he's in?


Well, like my character, I have an active imagination, and I agree that monsters are real and awesome. In the film, the boy has just lost his mother, and I thought about that in my own life and how I would deal with that. I pulled a lot of the scenes from that place. There is a particularly difficult scene in the film, and I kept a picture of my mother and me in my pocket to help keep that emotional connection.


How did you get involved with the project in the first place? And what can you tell us about Slapface's director Jeremiah Kipp [Jeremiah Kipp interview - click here], and what was your collaboration like?


Well, I’ve worked with Jeremiah before, and he called me up! Jeremiah is a great director. He manages to take his or someone else’s vision to life, all the while allowing the actors to make decisions. You can’t lose!


What can you tell us about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?


Everyone was great. We were all working together, as a group, and there was pure positivity. You should know that, though, by the film itself. To explain, I believe that the way the film ends up is directly proportional to how much fun it was to do.


Any future projects you'd like to share?


I recently finished shooting a guest star role on an episode of Blank Meets Blank on TruTV. I also just wrapped a short film I wrote called The Audition, which I will be submitting to film festivals. Hopefully more soon!


What got you into acting in the first place, and did you receive any formal training on the subject?


I was four, and I saw a movie, and decided I wanted to act. That would not fly with my mom unless I took serious classes. I took classes for about a year before my first audition, and I still take classes today.


What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to Slapface?


I liked working on all of them, and like Slapface, everyone was just a great person. Of course, if they weren’t, what’s the point?!


Actors (and indeed actresses) who inspire you?


I have a very eclectic taste, so I love watching actors from Liam Neeson to Ryan Reynolds. Meryl Streep is amazing. Bryan Cranston, who goes from crazy funny on Malcolm in the Middle to crazy scary on Breaking Bad. I love watching actors who started as kids and are still doing great work, like Winona Ryder and Sean Astin. Really, everyone who can overcome the frustrations of acting and keep their passion is pretty great.


Your favourite movies?


Gosh, I don’t know. I have a long list of of movies that I really like.

Most of the Pixar films. I also liked Hidden Figures. The Princess Bride. Breakfast Club. Ferris Bueller's Day Off, while we are on the topic of John Hughes. The Martian. The LEGO Movie (and the Batman one, too). Most Blue Sky films, along with most Dreamworks films, same with Illumination. I like a lot of the television now - Stranger Things is terrific. I've also been binge watching Malcolm in the Middle. Yeah, I’m eclectic.


... and of course, films you really deplore?


Cars 2. It betrayed Pixar. The prequels [to Star Wars]. On a side note, I am among the three people on Earth that actually likes the Super Mario Movie, if that is worth anything.

Anything else you're dying to mention and I have merely forgotten to ask?


I love acting and I love being around and learning from other creative people. My other passion that I hope to be able to use in my future acting projects is my martial arts - I have trained since I was 7 and I am a black belt in Mixed Martial Arts (on my way to becoming a 2nd degree black belt). I compete in Filipino escrima stick fighting and I am also a member of my martial arts demo team, which has been invited to perform at the World Championships in Hawaii this summer!
