Was it intimidating acting alongside Bruce Willis for your first big role?
When I received the call saying that I had gotten the role in Death Wish, I cried from happiness—and I also felt an incredible fear. Everything became instantly real and I said to myself, What did I get myself into? I’m not ready to shoot alongside Bruce Willis! Acting is scary the first time, but acting with someone like Bruce is downright terrifying. I thought I would arrive on set and choke or forget all my lines. But in all honesty, Bruce has made this first experience great. He supported me as an actor and as a friend. I felt encouraged the whole time.
What director do you dream of working with now?
If I could have a part in a Scorsese movie, I could die happy.
Does your success on Instagram help your career?
It has become a good platform on which to publicize my projects and news, like Sundance’s selection of the new independent film in which I appear, Never Goin’ Back directed by Augustine Frizzell. For me, it’s a space to show behind-the-scenes images and moments on shoots that I would not share otherwise.
