"My mam and dad trust me not to go out partying when I have work the next day, and [to] eat my breakfast and make sure I’m getting good food in me and all that. She’s kind of instilled that in me from the age of 10, since I’ve been working."
I am always very passionate about making films that I am drawn to, ones that really strike a chord with me. I never want to make a film for any other reason — I just don’t think it’s worth it in the long run. When a script comes in that really excites me for some reason and I can’t stop thinking or talking about it, I know that’s what I want to do next.
It scares me not to work. I had plenty of free time in the last year and it did not go well. I said to myself: “I’ll never work again.” I know… I have to learn to enjoy life and leisure. I’d like to go to university at some point too, but not now. I’ve always wanted to study art history… or something more technical - director of photography. I’d like to direct a film one day, but not a movie to show in public… I’d watch it alone with cats and popcorn.
