Nicholas Hoult: I Wanted To Be A Dolphin

Nicholas Hoult: I Wanted To Be A Dolphin

Nicholas Hoult, star of A Single Man, is featured in Issue #17 of VMan magazine, on newsstands Thursday, January 28.

Here’s what the 20-year-old British actor had to share:

On his early career aspirations: “When I was little, I wanted to be a dolphin. I only changed when I realized that wasn’t an option.”

On what draws him to acting: “What I like about this job is that you never peak. There are always new challenges. Getting older, I realize how little I know.”

On the awkwardness of nude scenes: “When you’re doing it, it’s fine because you’re in character. The awkward bit is always when they say cut.”

    I’m such a fan of his! Really people, you should go see his series, Skins, it’s funny and extremely well done. Plus you get to see him with very little clothes on a lot of times.

    I loved to hate his character, Tony, on Skins. The first two seasons were the best. I wish they hadn’t re-cast.

    I love Skins. Season 1 is available on Netflix & you can watch it on your laptop via live stream. Excellent series! I wish we had such awesomeness here in the US of A. I have read that there is supposed to be an American version & I think that MTV has something to do with it… I got a feeling it’s going to be warm crap!

    Loved him since About A Boy. The scene when he’s singing Mystical to the chick who plays Tonks in Harry Potter was priceless!

    Actually, the first two seasons of Skins are available for streaming. Killer show, looking forward to seeing the Effie centric season.
