The 26-year-old actor, who has not studied acting, said he has polished his craft from working with “great directors” and co-stars such as Judi Dench, Dame Maggie Smith, and Nicole Kidman.
“(My co-stars) have a curiosity about life, a sense of humour and emotional reserve. I never went to acting school. Everything Ive learned, Ive learned from great directors and my co-stars.
“Acting is about honesty. When I began, I was trying to squeeze as much emotion out of roles as I could and get big laughs. Now its about doing less, cutting away the fat,” he said. PTI
