12 Things We Learned About The Maze Runner from Thomas Brodie-Sangster
We can’t stop talking about The Maze Runner! Though we’ve already given you the juicy details about the upcoming James Dashner book-turned-movie from the stars themselves, Dylan O’Brien, Kaya Scodelario and Blake Cooper, we wanna give you one more because, well, WHY NOT?! This time around, we interviewed Thomas Brodie-Sangster a.k.a. Newt.
In our exclusive Q&A, the 24-year-old Brit, who you probably know from Game of Thrones or, at the very least, as the little boy in Love Actually (AWW!!!), dished on all the things you want to know about the film, including the bromances, TMR‘s Hunger Games comparisons and what’s going down with the sequel:
Congrats on The Maze Runner! How did you snag the role of Newt?
"I heard about it through my agent. They sent me the scripts, and I read it and really liked the premise of it. I like the way that it was about a bunch of boys put together... To survive, they had to unite and come together and support one another and I liked that a lot about it, and then I just put myself down on tape. I originally went down for Newt and for Gally. Will, who plays Gally, he also went for Newt and for Gally. Then I didn't hear back for... two or three months? I just believed that I hadn't got it, and suddenly they called me up and said, 'You got it,' and that was it."
