“I gained about 43-45 pounds,” Colin told Jimmy. “The director said if he was too thin then there would be ‘a psychological issue, we don’t want to confuse the audience. I think he’s soft’. So I ate cheeseburgers for breakfast.”

    Colin is extremely underrated. He really is a remarkable actor. I think he’ll get more recognition once the Harry Potter spinoff is released in November.

    No, and that’s not the kind of recognition he wants.
    Actually he has gotten it, that recognition, early on and now acts to enjoy it. I’m proud of that. Actors, if you’re a real actor, doing it for the reasons only you know, all of them, enjoy it. If they don’t enjoy it, it’s time to ‘retire’ and ‘loaf’ and live off your laurels or just turn famous for being famous and fart about accepting false applause and stuff, sometimes literally, and that (to me) is upsetting because talent is a terrible thing to let rust, not keep oiled. But Colin isn’t doing that. And I won’t see him in the blockbusters. I like Colin the actor, ohm, acting, not delivering one-liners in huge productions. But, hey, do that too, just…. keep acting. :)
