A Monster Calls' Lewis MacDougall Reveals the Actors He Looks Up To (Exclusive Interview)

The 14-year-old actor plays a boy who seeks the help of a tree monster to cope with his single mom’s illness. Feicity Jones plays the role of his mother in the film, in theaters now.

Lewis was previously seen as Nibs in the Peter Pan film Pan in 2015. He opened up to us about how he got into acting, the actors he admires, fun stories from set, and more. Check it out!

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.
