Cameron Cuffe Opens Up About Playing Superman's Grandfather in 'Krypton'

Cameron Cuffe is featured in Rogue‘s Issue N°9, which is available for pre-order now.

Here’s what the 25-year-old Krypton actor had to say…

On celebrity: “I’m not sure you could call me a celebrity. I think the amazing thing is, with Krypton, it’s spoken to a lot of people within the superhero community. I got to do all these amazing, really cool things that I never thought I’d be able to do. I’m on first name basis with Geoff Johns now who is the president of DC. I got to hang out with creators who I’ve loved and I got to go to ComicCon. It was really amazing being able to do all that, but I’m not sure I really feel like a celebrity or anything. I’m just having a great time, that’s what it feels like to me. I don’t think I’ll ever really feel like I’m famous or anything because to me, I’m someone who got really lucky.”

On being Superman’s grandpa: “It’s awesome. There’s a great quote, I can’t remember who said it, I think it might’ve Christian Bale. He said, ‘an actor should never be bigger than the movie they’re in’ and I really believe that the wonderful thing about Superman is that he’s such an important and enduring character. As a character, he means so much to millions of people all over the world and because of that, we are also part of something wonderful and something that means so much to people. So it’s a real honor to be a part of this.”

On whether he’s nervous about taking on the role: “I think so. I think that’s a good thing though. I think that’s a very human place to be because it is humbling to be part of this. This legacy is eighty years old but I think that’s the thing is that it just keeps you grounded.”
