I've always played sport. I played rugby, I was involved in athletics, I played cricket... I'm an outdoors kind of guy.
I'm not someone who has a lengthy attention span, and that applies to my exercise routine as well.
I was always realistic about the fact I wanted to be involved with big films.
I was a bit of a show-off in school and loved playing dress-up, and my passion for it just grew as I got older.
I started coming to L.A. as often as I could, for three months on and three months off, because immigration kicks you out after 90 days.
When you're working with people you've seen in hundreds of films... it's a bit crazy to step outside yourself for a minute and think, 'This is surreal.' But I try not to get too bogged down in that.
I was too young to be an avid enthusiast for the franchise, but like billions of people I remember as a child sitting around with the family on a Friday night with pizza and popcorn and a 'Die Hard' movie on.
I don't know if I'm an action star or if that's just how things are shaping up. I would hate to be boxed into that forever, but it's probably just a strength as far as my type goes, and I'm fine with that.
My mum is a school teacher and my dad is an electrician.
