Somehow I got a place at Bristol University. I’m still waiting for the phone call to say that they made a mistake and got the wrong person.
My teacher told my mum, ‘I think William has dyspraxia,’ and Mum asked what that meant. She said, ‘Well, if I put a chair in the middle of the room and asked every child in the class to walk around it, William would be the only child in the class to walk into it.’ Mum was like, ‘Yeah, that’s my boy’.
I need to try and get away from that brat role, or people are going to think I’m a natural brat.
The thing I get a lot is, ‘You’ve got a very recognisable face.’ I’m never quite sure what to make of it.
I think what makes Narnia a magical place is that it offers escapism – escapism from a world that is so different from the reality known by the characters and the reality known by the fans.
I joined the after-school club, School of Comedy, which progressed wildly, and in quite a Hollywood way. It sounds like ‘School of Rock’, right up to trying to raise money to pay for a venue in Edinburgh.
