Kodi Smit-McPhee Reveals How He Connects to Nightcrawler in 'Dark Phoenix'

Kodi Smit-McPhee lounges in a pool slide in this shot from his feature with Interview magazine.

The 22-year-old actor opened up with the glossy about how he personally connected with his Dark Phoenix character, Nightcrawler, through spirituality.

“I find that a lot of things I express naturally in Nightcrawler is because I’m a lot like him—aside from the fact that he’s a blue mutant with superpowers,” Kodi says. “I have a huge love for spirituality and philosophy and mythology. I have a huge passion for educating myself about myself in relation to the universe.”

He also shared a book he was reading that inspires him.

“There’s a book called ‘Be Here Now’ by Ram Dass. I call it the little blue book. It has beautiful little illustrations expressing the life of Ram Dass,” Kodi shared. “He was so successful in the Western world, materialistically and financially, but he kept questioning his life.”

“He studied science, psychedelics, and he questioned the use of psychedelics and their effect on humans–sometimes healing depression, sometimes answering the mysteries of life itself.”

Dark Phoenix is in theaters now.

Is There a 'Dark Phoenix' End Credits Scene?

Sophie Turner‘s Dark Phoenix hits theaters at midnight tonight and loads of fans are going to head to the movies to see the new X-Men film.

Well, we’ve got the scoop and there is no end credits scene after the movie ends.

Here’s a synopsis of the film: During a life-threatening rescue mission in space, Jean is hit by a cosmic force that transforms her into one of the most powerful mutants of all. Wrestling with this increasingly unstable power as well as her own personal demons, Jean spirals out of control, tearing the X-Men family apart and threatening to destroy the very fabric of our planet. The film is the most intense and emotional X-Men movie ever made. It is the culmination of 20 years of X-Men movies, as the family of mutants that we’ve come to know and love must face their most devastating enemy yet — one of their own.

If you missed it, we recently discovered that while so many X-Men stars have returned for this new film…Hugh Jackman has remained retired from the role of Wolverine. Find out why the film’s director left him out of the movie.

Be sure to catch the movie, in theaters on June 7!
