I want to keep working with the best, keep going and be a better actor each time I go and dive into something.
On fame, wild nights out in Hollywood: There's no need to get involved in all that if you are in it for the right purpose.
The motivation is important for me to act it, but I don't necessarily want the audience to know my motivation.
I was interested in the war part of 'Star Wars,' so I started reading about what it's like to go to war, what that does to you psychically, about the adrenaline and the rush.
I like being like a chameleon who transforms himself with each role.
I've written a lot of music, so to be able to put that together and play some shows around the country and elsewhere - that would really be a fun thing to do.
I like films that take their time a little bit more and don't show you all of their cards right away, characters that are conflicted and contradicting and seem one way at first and then suddenly turn out to be something else.
Being someone with Latin roots, so many doors are constantly closed for you because people put you in a category, and the thing I've always wanted to avoid is categorisation.
