Douglas Booth: 'An Honor' to Play Romeo in 'Romeo & Juliet'

Douglas Booth is sexy and sultry as he poses in this brand new feature for GQ magazine’s August 2013 issue.

Here’s what the 21-year-old Romeo & Juliet actor had to share with the mag:

On playing Romeo in Romeo & Juliet: “It’s really intimidating but it’s also exciting and it’s an honor. I tried to forget about playing “Romeo” in Romeo and Juliet and just think about him as a normal guy, as a normal character, and just try and approach him the same I would every other character.”

On identifying with Romeo: “Yeah, I feel, like, I’m sort of very spontaneous. I mean, whether or not I would take my life within the space of however many days of falling in love, I’m not really sure. But yeah, I think whichever character you’re playing, you have to sort of go within yourself and find places to draw on.”

On what he has been working on: “At the end of last year, I finished Darren Aronofsky‘s next film, Noah. It was an amazing job; it’s going to be an epic and Darren is such a talented filmmaker. I just finished Jupiter Ascendingthe Wachowskis, they’re directing it. This is their return to sort of more Matrix-y fare, a cross between Star Wars and The Matrix.”
