24 Hours To Live

The Kiwi actor, and star of X-Men: Dark Phoenix, discusses his hypothetical last day on earth…

How do you want to leave this world?   
With a smile.

Do you have any deathbed confessions?
I think I’ve said everything to everyone, so it’s all good on that front.

What’s your last meal?
Wow, that’s a big one. I love all types of food, so the last meal would take me a while.

Which of your X-Men: Dark Phoenix co-stars do you invite to your last supper?
I’d have to invite all of them. I love them all the same.

Playing braid-wielding mutant Ariki in X-Men: Dark Phoenix, what was the craziest thing that happened on the set?
The craziest thing was me having a trailer with my name on the front door – that was pretty damn cool.

What did you know now that you didn’t at 18?
That magic truly exists in this world.

To whom on Earth do you owe an apology?
Well, there are no confessions so therefore, no need for apologies.

What’s your greatest achievement during your time on earth?
The friends I’ve made along the way on this amazing earth.

What’s the dumbest thing you ever did on earth?
Where do I begin? I’ve done some dumb things on my journey through life and know that it was all for a good reason – to learn!

What are your friends saying over your casket?
“Let’s party!” 

What or who would you like to be reincarnated as?
A creature that’s able to fly and breathe under water.

What’s written on your tombstone?
Hopefully something because that’ll be a bad look.

Got any last words?
Be a good human being and go for your dreams. Just don’t hurt anyone along the way to becoming amazing.
