Thomas Brodie- Sangster

The Love Ac­tu­ally and Game Of Thrones star is still run­ning as Newt in The Maze Run­ner

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Red Alert -

WILD BOYS

“It’s Lord Of The Flies and The Lost Boys. That’s what at­tracted me to the script in the first place; the ca­ma­raderie of th­ese young men who have no choice but to look after each other. It’s the story of a brother­hood.”

NEWT TRICKS

“Newt is an in­ter­est­ing guy. He’s been in the Glade [ the cen­tre of a huge maze] for a long time and knows how the sys­tem works. When Thomas [ the main character] ar­rives with no mem­ory, Newt gets on board.”

BORED OF THE FLIES

“Kind of like the Glade, the cast were stay­ing in a ho­tel in the mid­dle of nowhere, with noth­ing much to do. All we had was each other. If we hadn’t get on well with each other, the shoot would’ve been a dif­fer­ent ex­pe­ri­ence!”

A SNAKE I N THE GRASS

“The Glade was all real, just a field in Louisiana! It was re­ally hot and we had five dif­fer­ent type of ven­omous snakes. The snake min­der would catch about ten a day...”

Not so young adult

“The film is ac­tu­ally quite scary and sin­is­ter. What I like is that it’s dirty. The make- up girls wouldn’t touch us, which I liked. It looks real, which it should do. When you watch the film, that sweat in the film is real sweat.”

IN THE LONG RUN

“We’re try­ing to cre­ate what fans imag­ine the story of the Maze Run­ner to be. I hope the film does well. I want to do it all over again. I want to see where th­ese char­ac­ters go.”

The Maze Run­ner is re­leased on Fri­day 10 Oc­to­ber.
