When his new movie, "Blue Lagoon: The Awakening" hits the small screen Saturday, he'll have to watch it from across the pond. We rock out and we rehearse and we talk about the scene and we talk about the characters. We're all kind of working together to create this cool film.
Thwaites is in London filming his next project, "Maleficent," opposite Angelina Jolie. No, it's very flattering and it's great and it's part of the industry and it's part of my job, but I'm very shy. Everyone kind of voices their opinion and talks to the director and it's just like any other film. Thwaites: You know, I actually don't know who auditioned for it, and I'd like to keep it that way.
It's an interesting mix for a guy who is shy and has no desire to be a heartthrob. There's a lot more controversy and a lot more misty activity in the last one. We're both wearing big jackets and beanies and whatever, and then we get thrown into this humid, tropical climate. I haven't had the whole "famous" thing happen to me yet, and I hope I never will. It's weird when auditioning for roles, because a lot of my mates go out for the same roles.
Thwaites recently talked to CNN's JD Cargill about his career, his aversion to fame and why he'd like some quality time with John Mc Enroe. This one's about two high school kids who go on a humanitarian trip to Trinidad. As one would do if one was in love with a girl and on an island -- I mean, I'd wear nothing, personally. I like to sneak away in the corners and hide a lot. I'm going to have to ponder it for at least 20 seconds. It would be John Mc Enroe because I believe we could make tennis rackets out of the palm trees and play tennis with the coconuts. You don't want to know that you're beating someone to the role.
She played the role of Isabella 'Bella' Hartley, an aspiring singer and mermaid.
Evans performed the theme song, "No Ordinary Girl", as well as a number of additional tracks that were featured over the course of the season.
"We wanted a story that the mothers and daughters in the Lifetime demographic could watch together, where the sexual content wouldn't alienate anybody or become the talking point," says executive producer Judith Verno.
"When you watch the original it feels like you're doing something naughty.
During his youth, Thwaites was drawn to the idea of becoming a policeman or a firefighter, having been interested in movies involving the latter.They get caught in a storm and get stranded on an island. And he would get so angry, and it would be so entertaining up close. I think that's the wrong attitude to have in this town. They were looking for someone who was exactly like me. But my experience with her and all the other stars in the film is quite normal.Brooke Shields was shockingly beautiful and sexualized. Ours is a coming-of-age story that's about much more than two kids having sex.It's a sweet, epic romance." Which means lots of longing looks, slo-mo dances in the rain and, above all, getting rid of that "ick" factor: In the original, the kids were cousins and barely pubescent when they first had sex; here they're conveniently 18 and, at first, mere acquaintances.
