July 27th, 2013   Interviews, Jack the Giant Slayer No Comments

The British actor, and beau of Jennifer Lawrence, talks about tackling the lead role in Jack The Giant Slayer, laughing at his co-star’s stunt bloopers and a penchant for climbing trees.

What makes your Jack tick in Jack And The Giant Slayer?
Well, Jack lost his parents when he was pretty young, has been raised by his uncle and has a good heart and good intentions, but things don’t always go his way. He hasn’t had a lot of breaks in life, and then he gets swept up on this adventure to try to rescue the princess, but he’s totally unprepared and scared of heights, which is very inappropriate when you’re climbing five miles into the sky on a beanstalk.

Did you have fun romancing Eleanor Tomlinson’s princess?
We’d mess around and joke about stuff in the scenes. It can be tricky to develop a relationship quickly without that many scenes and have the audience believe your characters. But Bryan [Singer] knows how to formulate a solid story that’s well told, and that sweeps you up. So he managed to pop out the key points for us very clearly.

Were there any opportunities to have a laugh during production?
I enjoyed it when things would go wrong during Eleanor’s stunts [laughs]. Not terribly wrong, but just, like, when we were in the cathedral and maybe Eleanor wasn’t listening when they were talking about camera timings and when we had to drop to the floor. So we were meant to go on ‘action’, but on ‘one’ I see her out of the corner of my eye just hit the deck. It was a hard, concrete floor and you’d hear a little moan of: ‘Ow.’ That made me laugh a lot.

Did you enjoy the physicality of the role?
I climbed a lot of trees when I was a child, and I thought I’d enjoy a second chance to do that on a grand scale. Even recently, I was out walking around the woods at my house and I was like: ‘Oh, a massive tree to climb,’ and I did. It was easier when I was a kid: I’m getting worse at tree climbing. When you’re a kid, you’re fearless and the branches can take your weight a lot easier.

What did you like about the film’s story?
I just like the fact that these two characters are being told what they can’t do and they won’t achieve, and they both, against the odds, go out and accomplish things and learn and grow. That’s a great message to be sending out to anyone watching the film, but particularly to kids. Don’t accept no as an answer. And don’t get the beans wet.

Jack The Giant Slayer is out now on DVD, Blu-ray and 3D Blu-ray.
