Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - Eguide Movies -

AS YOU READ THIS RYAN KWAN­TEN IS . . .

shoot­ing his last scenes on sea­son five of True

Blood. And he loves play­ing the sex- mad Ja­son Stack­house: ‘‘ They keep get­ting me out­side of my lit­tle com­fort zone. I feel more than chal­lenged.’’ Then Kwan­ten flies home to film Ivan Sen’s Mys­tery Road with Hugo Weav­ing. ‘‘ It’s an orig­i­nal, in­ter­est­ing story.’’

IN EV­ERY TRUE BLOOD SEA­SON BREAK . . .

Kwan­ten has shot an Aussie movie. ‘‘ That’s the caviar on the top. At the end of the day, I’m at­tracted to good sto­ries, and it just so hap­pens that the ones I con­nected to were Aus­tralian.’’ Last break, he shot Not Suit­able

for Chil­dren. He plays a party boy di­ag­nosed with can­cer who has three weeks to find a baby mama.

IF REAL- LIFE RYAN HAD THREE WEEKS . . .

to find a baby mama, Not Suit­able for Chil­dren di­rec­tor Peter Tem­ple­man says he’d have no trou­ble. ‘‘ I don’t know about that!’’ Kwan­ten says, laugh­ing. The movie’s con­cept isn’t so far- fetched, he says. ‘‘ As silly and as sar­cas­tic as it seems, it al­ways comes from a point of truth and that’s com­edy I like to play.’’

ARE CHIL­DREN SUIT­ABLE FOR RYAN? . . .

‘‘ This film did make me think of that. There’s part of me that des­per­ately wants kids. I look at the sac­ri­fices and the joy that I hope we three boys my par­ents raised gave Mum and Dad. It def­i­nitely pro­voked and stirred up those parental feel­ings.’’ Ladies, get in line.
