JOE SUGG TALKS WON­DER PARK

First News - - FRONT PAGE -

WE sat down with YouTube stars Joe Sugg and Cas­par Lee to hear all about their role in the thrilling new movie, Won­der Park. The film sees a girl called June us­ing her imag­i­na­tion to con­jure up the most mag­nif­i­cent theme park you’ve ever seen.

HI GUYS! SO, YOU PLAY GUS AND COOPER IN THE MOVIE…

Joe: Yes! Our char­ac­ters are two mis­chievous beavers in Won­der Park.

We’re part of June’s imag­i­na­tion. We’re helpers, we’re per­form­ers in the theme park.

Cas­par: I’ve al­ways wanted to be a beaver.

WHAT WAS IT LIKE DO­ING YOUR VOICE-OVERS?

Joe: I love it! For me, it’s some­thing that I love to do. From an early age, I loved do­ing im­pres­sions and accents and stuff, so it’s such a di­rec­tion of where I want to go. It’s so fun to do it with Cas­par too. Cas­par has such a unique voice. It’s a lovely blend of South African, but also Bri­tish. It’s got a really calm­ing tone.

Cas­par: Really? I won­der if any­one is go­ing to watch the film and go, why did that twin grow up in a dif­fer­ent coun­try to his brother?! We could be sep­a­rated at birth, maybe? But yeah, June’s got an amaz­ing imag­i­na­tion, so who knows?

DID YOU EVER HAVE ANY LAUGH­ING OUT­BURSTS WHILE RECORD­ING?

Cas­par: Oh yeah, so many! We kept do­ing this “Boom chuka, boom chuka, boom chuka” thing. That made me lol.

Joe: Cas­par bought in this gi­ant quiche with him one day. In be­tween takes, he was just con­stantly feed­ing him­self quiche. We were like, Cas­par you can’t do this line with a mouth­ful of quiche. He would just do it.

GUS AND COOPER CAN FIX ANY­THING. HOW ARE YOUR DIY SKILLS?

Cas­par: I’m very bad.

Joe: I pride my­self on flat-pack fur­ni­ture building.

Cas­par: That’s not good DIY. They make that easy for you!

Joe: My pa­per shred­der broke the other day, be­cause some­one put too much pa­per in. But there was no way I was go­ing to spend money on an­other pa­per shred­der, so I got out my tool kit. I spent half a day try­ing to fix that thing. I didn’t let it beat me!

IF YOU COULD MAKE ANY­THING, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

Cas­par: I’d like to plant a lot more trees. I feel like Lon­don sometimes feels a bit too pol­luted, with too many cars.

Joe: I would make a ma­chine that lets you cus­tomise the weather, be­cause I love the sun. I just love be­ing in hot weather. I’ve got bad cir­cu­la­tion. Me and my mum are the same, we just love be­ing any­where hot. I’d much rather be too hot than too cold.

Cas­par: Why do you live in Eng­land?!

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE THEME PARK RIDE?

Cas­par: Ooh, there used to be this place called Ratanga Junc­tion and they had this big ba­nana ride that I really liked. I can’t re­mem­ber what it was called, but it was like a ba­nana that would swing up and down.

Joe: I’m not a big roller­coaster rider. I’m quite scared of them. I did do one, a very pop­u­lar space-themed roller­coaster at a big theme park in France. That was fun. It’s pitch black and you really feel like you’re on a space­ship. I love that.

Cas­par: Joe would scream the most if we went on a ride to­gether.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE SCENE FROM THE MOVIE?

Joe: I love the scene where June builds a roller­coaster. It goes hor­ri­bly wrong, but it re­minds me of when I was younger and I used to build skate­board ramps or bike ramps in the gar­den. As a kid we would dream of hav­ing a ham­mer and nails and know­ing how to use them to cre­ate ramps and stuff. Me and my sis­ter [Zoella] also used to pre­tend we were horses. We used to get lit­tle things for the gar­den and put them across the path and pre­tend we were showjump­ing horses. Imag­i­na­tion is a crazy thing!
