JJ: How did you get into acting? If you weren’t an actor, what would you be?
LM: I got into acting when I was around 8 or 9 years old at a local drama group that some of my friends had invited me to. It was just a bit of fun though I had no intention of nor had I ever considered going into films. One day when I went along to the group they were holding an open casting for a movie, Pan. At first I wasn’t going to do the audition but the lady who ran the group persuaded me to. It was through getting the part in Pan that I got my agent and realized that acting was something I enjoyed and wanted to continue with. If I wasn’t an actor I would just be at school full time and I would probably become something to do with films like a cameraman or something like that.
