I think in the book it hints that Newt is British. I suppose they wanted to kind of mix it up a bit, and show that these people come from all over, or at least, one of us does. But being an actor, an American accent is the main accent you have to do. [Starts speaking in American English] You have to be able to do a standard, generic accent of some type, and it helps a lot. [Shifts back to British English] But also, we grow up watching an awful lot of American films and TV, so most people in England can do an American accent. It may not be amazing, but you can get there.

They say that I was that guy, but I don’t remember being that guy! [Laughs.] I like the outdoors. They gave me a machete, and I was learning how to use it, chopping down trees. I’ve always been good with my hands. I like building and making things. And I just like the idea of being outside. I love the fact that we were surrounded by things that could kill you. That all helps who my character is. It felt like we were really in the place we were supposed to be in.

I’m not a big reader. The trouble is, being an actor, you’re always being sent scripts, so you’ve always got something to read. You’ve always got about three scripts to read, that you have to read, all the time. So finding a book or getting into a book series is hard, especially for me. I struggle with reading a bit. I’m slightly dyslexic, so reading takes me quite a while, and in general, I’m not a big book reader at all. And something like Game of Thrones seems very daunting to me!

Ah! I’d be down for that! Eat me! Go ahead — I’d love for them to eat me. [Laughs.] I’m definitely down for that. I mean, I’ve already been stabbed, had my throat slashed, and been fire-balled, so what harm is there in eating me? And then I could come back. Although, you know, I’d really love to come back as a ghost. Wouldn’t that be fun? Be a ghost for a day. Haunt them all.
