MAX THIERIOT – EXCLUSIVE JUSTJARED.COM INTERVIEW
JJ: Can you tell us about your upcoming project Bates Motel?
MT: Yeah, Bates Motel is a new TV show for A&E with Vera Farmiga and Freddie Highmore. It’s pretty cool because it’s a prequel to Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho. It should be full of madness and crazy stuff! It’s all next level stuff I think.
JJ: That sounds amazingly terrifying! Can you tell us about your character on the show?
MT: I play Dylan Bates who is the oldest son and the older brother to Norman (Highmore).
JJ: What drew you to the script?
MT: I’m a huge Alfred Hitchcock fan and so I was a fan before I even read the script. Then I read the material and it was awesome. The team behind it all is fantastic and very talented. The whole thing just sparked my interest!
JJ: Are you excited about being part of a scary series?
MT: Yeah! We haven’t started shooting yet, but my other horror project House at the End of the Street comes out today! I’ve just happened to be doing stuff in this genre recently (laughs).
JJ: What’s the best part about working on the set of a horror movie or TV show?
MT: It’s fun because you get to play all sorts of different people with different personalities and crazy characteristics. You know, it’s something different and fun to do! You get to experience a little bit of everything – some real human emotions.
JJ: Do you remember what the first scary movie you ever saw was?
MT: The first scary movie I saw was maybe The Exorcist, which is terrifying when you’re a young age. It’s one of those films that definitely resonates after you watch it.
JJ: Seeing how Halloween is right around the corner, have you picked out a costume yet?
MT: Oh gosh (laughs). No, not yet. I had a couple ideas…but it’s been kind of tough. I thought about being Kenny Powers from East Bound and Down.
JJ: You’re also in the upcoming movie Yellow with Riley Keough. What’s that about?
MT: It’s a crazy mind-bending, tripper movie. Nick Cassavetes is one of the premiere directors in my opinion, and very, very talented. So fans can expect his style along with some crazy stuff in there.
JJ: Can you tell us about the character you play, Nowell?
MT: Yeah, he’s a character I’ve never played before. Brendan Sexton and I play the same character. He plays the older version and I’m him at a younger age. Nowell grows up in Oklahoma and has a family that is full of crazy problems. He’s also a character who strange enough is in love with his sister. He’s a bad boy for sure.
JJ: Did you have a favorite scene to shoot?
MT: Honestly, there were so many awesome like crazy stunts that the movie for me was just an awesome experience for me as a while. I can’t really pick out one moment (laughs). It was a trip.
JJ: When you aren’t busy working, what would you say are some of your guilty pleasures?
MT: Over the past couple years I’ve become obsessed with working out. I’m also a crazy psycho 49ers fan and just started my own winery.
