Callan McAuliffe to 'Glow' Magazine: Leonardo DiCaprio is a 'Terrific Guy'

Callan McAuliffe gets serious in this May 2013 feature for Glow magazine.

Here’s what the 18-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On his role in The Great Gatsby: “It was an incredible experience to say the least. I have a strong role in flashback as Young Jay. However, it was an honor to be involved in such a production. I already live a great life, but in reality I choose a simpler life to the one we see in Gatsby. I have simple tastes, so to play the opposite of myself is in fact great because it’s another opportunity to really act, no matter the size of the role. Gatsby will be an epic film of our time.”

On working with heavyweight veteran actors:Leo [DiCaprio] is a terrific guy. Baz [Luhrmann] is talented and creative and incredible to work with. My only stories would relate to how do you turn a brunette (me) into a blonde, blue-eyed Young Gatsby. I had about seven eye appointments for hand painted lenses to match Leo’s eyes and they bleached my hair several times to get from brunette to blonde. The pre-production on this film was brilliant. I actually enjoyed watching the incredible detail they put into my role and the time spent to ensure that the cross between Leo and myself was flawless.”

On his future projects: “The only one I can talk about today is the film offer from Amy Redford for her film The House That Jack Built. We will be filming in a mining town in Middle America. Apart from that I look forward to writing more soundtracks, myself (as a hobby) and to challenging roles in the future. Challenge gives me growth as well as an opportunity to learn from great actors, crew, top directors and the people who have been doing this for a lot longer than myself. I am looking forward to the future and the adventure.”

He was a terrible choice for young gatsby. Should have been Dane Dehaan who is 95% young leo.
