Shape (Malaysia) - - You Right Now -


“Go­ing from film­ing The Crown to Mis­sion: Im­pos­si­ble was like night and day. I’d never done stunts be­fore. I worked re­ally hard with a trainer so I could run in a scene with Tom [Cruise] with­out vom­it­ing! The first thing we did was go for a jog, and I was so out of breath that I nearly had a heart at­tack. I didn’t re­al­ize how un­fit I was. Now I re­ally like run­ning. Who would have thought that would hap­pen?”


“When I was 18, I spent time in South Africa learn­ing about con­flict zones and civil wars. To­day I work with an or­ga­ni­za­tion called War Child, and it’s the most im­por­tant thing in my life. It’s the only char­ity that spe­cial­izes in help­ing chil­dren af­fected by con­flict. War Child tries to give th­ese kids back a sem­blance of their child­hood.”


“I was re­cently in a Syr­ian refugee camp with War Child, and I’m go­ing to Congo with them in June. I’d like toded­i­cate half my life to work­ing with them if I can. Act­ing can be very self-fo­cused. I think the key to coun­ter­ing that is serv­ing other peo­ple. It’s ask­ing your­self: How can I give back to­day?”
