This is what he said about it:
“What’s annoying about it is, like, if things keep going the way they are going, I might well get it at some point,” he said, chuckling at the absurdity of the situation.

“I don’t know what that makes me feel, to be honest. It’s just, like, odd. I read somewhere that they said I was a perfect person to do it with because I don’t have social media, so I can’t see it and respond immediately.”
On the advice of his producers he started avoiding contact with his fans:
“It’s just a lot of feeling like you are being incredibly rude. Sometimes you’ll go to do an elbow thing and somebody will look at you, as if, ‘Come on, are we really doing that?’ and I have to reply, ‘Yes, I’m sorry, I’m really paranoid about it, I don’t want to get sick and spread that around.’”
Another topis: Child actors :
“Knowing that is what people think about young actors made me counteract that to the point where you could be quite rude to me and I would not notice,” “I would be so paranoid that you could say whatever you liked.”
The mind-set that keeps him from alcohol is helping him navigate the coronavirus anxiety today.
“To really know and understand what it means to take something one day at a time is an attitude that really helps across life,” he said. “When you first stop drinking, you have to be convinced that you can ever have fun again.”
He is eager to be reunited with his girlfriend, the actress Erin Darke, in New York:
“Honestly, I am desperately trying to get back,” he said. “I’m very much aware that this is not the main tragedy of this global pandemic, but I do not want to be not with her through whatever it is that’s happening.”

“Hopefully I’ll be over there in a few weeks,” he said. “We shall see.”
They like to watch movies or play board games:
“I’m going to make us sound ancient, but we play cribbage. I can’t describe it without making it sound intensely dull, but it’s very addictive,”
It also features photos from a new photoshoot taken on 13th March:
