20 Minutes interview (Switzerland)

A new interview by 20 Minutes in promotion of Playmobil: The Movie (Playmobil Le Film). The film will be released in Switzerland later this week: 7th August.

Translation by Daniel J Radcliffe Holland.

Did this film revive childhood memories?
Yes, especially by doing press these last days. I wondered with which toys I had fun when I was a kid. I had some Playmobil and I imagined detailed dialogues between all my figurines.

What is the worst memory of your childhood?

I hated school. I was really not good at studying or playing sports. I thought that I had no particular talent and that I had a bad self-esteem. This is one of the reasons that my agent suggested to my parents to send me an audition for the role of Harry Potter. As my classmates did not do that kind of thing, he thought I would feel special.

And the best?

I went to a private English school, the kind of place where everyone comes from the same social background and there is not a lot of diversity. So I'm very grateful to have been taken to a movie set where I worked with people from all over the world.

What is the most difficult thing when you become famous so young around the world?

You must find out what is important to you and who you are. If you define yourself as a famous person and see yourself like this, you will break your mouth because you will not stay forever. The celebrity always ends up disappearing and you have to be comfortable with the person who remains at his departure. Fuck the red carpet, that's what I like the least in my work. I'm just trying to lead a life as normal as possible.

What does a normal day look like for you?

I get up, exercise, and read two or three hours. Then I answer the messages and if I have a job that day, I leave to give interviews or others. When I go home, I order a meal and watch sports on TV. Tonight there is the darts championship.

And you like that?

It is a sport that has a lot of success in England and takes place in front of 5000 spectators. I do not know how to play it but I love to watch it. I can not explain why I'm addicted. It's super fascinating.

How important is work-life balance?

I'm making progress on this. Before, I was happy by doing one shoot after another. Shortly after meeting my girlfriend six or seven years ago, she said, "You should try to leave for a vacation. "I thought I would hate it and that I could not relax, then I started taking a vacation once a year and found it great.
