When you start falling for somebody and you can’t stop thinking about when you’re going to see them again I love that. Women are beautiful. They deserve to be cherished and respected.
Movies like that aren’t about the visual effects and explosions. They’re human stories about family about life about death.
Lord of the Rings was my first experience making movies and at the time I had no ideas how movies were done. I thought that’s the way they’re done so in a way I had nothing to compare it to.
I’m still at the beginning of my career. It’s all a little new and I’m still learning as I go.
I missed my home – like the physicality of my home I missed my friends and my family mostly and just hanging out and being in your home country – culturally it feels right and that is what I miss.
I got to dress up in funny clothes and run around New Zealand with a bow and arrow for 18 months how bad could that be?
I got to work with one of my heroes Johnny Depp and to see how he goes about business which was really inspiring for me at this stage in my career.
I did send a girl a plane ticket asking her for a visit I guess that’s quite romantic.

A friend told me that teenage girls are always looking for someone to pin their dreams on. That doesn’t make it any less weird though.
