Brodie-Sangster stars as Newt in The Maze Runner. The film, based on the young adult novel, tells the story of teenage boys trapped in a maze. Co-starring Dylan O’Brien, Will Pouter, Kaya Scodelario, Aml Ameen and Ki Hong Lee.
My agent said there’s this project come up, it sounds like an interesting script; they want your tape as soon as you can. They wanted me to audition for one nice guy called Newt, who had an English accent, and one nasty guy called Gally, with an American accent. And Will [Poulter], who got Gally, he did the same. They put those two characters together. In some ways they are kind of similar—they’re the two different sides to [the protagonist] Thomas’ mind. I don’t really think of Gally as a proper baddie, he’s just stuck in his ways and goes about things in maybe not quite such a rational manner. I didn’t hear back for about three months and I just assumed I hadn’t got it. I auditioned for lots of other stuff. Then suddenly they were like, “Oh, yeah. You got it.” Didn’t recall or anything. I had to remind myself of what it actually was, because I’d forgotten about it and let it go. I did all the research again and went out and started shooting.
Brodie-Sangster confirms he is finishing filming:
MTV releases the first images of the cast.
Brodie-Sangster stars in the HBO series Game of Thrones. Brodie-Sangster plays Jojen Reed, who although not physically dominating is a wise guide and mentor to Bran Stark.
When I first found out I was a little bit disappointed that I don’t get to do any sword fighting or bows and arrows or anything like that (laughs), but in some ways it’s kind of cool, that [although] I’m [the] male character, my sister carries all the weapons and does all that side of things. In a show that’s full of a lot of blood, a lot of violence, a lot of sword wielding and a lot of death, my character is actually equally as strong, but much more spiritual and in control through his mind. It’s a much more interesting path.
Brodie-Sangster is the third actor to be cast.
Brodie-Sangster is the voice of Ferb Fletcher in the animated series Phineas and Ferb, as well as the film Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension.
It’s not too serious – it’s just fun and that’s important, especially with the recession and all the political this and that. Especially for young people, it’s important to inspire them. Phineas and Ferb remind us that it’s important to keep your youth. You should get up and do something every day, make every day count, and do practical stuff – make things, create things and have a bit of fun. It’s just full of good messages, really.
