VDT Blog – “Five Questions with Will Poulter”
How did you come to get the role of Eustace? What was the audition process like for you?
I was really lucky because I got to go to the very first audition in London. But it was postponed due to the writers’ strike in America. So, six months later, they contacted me and asked if I would like to audition again. I was lucky that I hadn’t really grown much; otherwise it could have been difficult [to be considered for the part]. So, I was really lucky to get onto the next round of casting, and then I finally got to meet Michael [Apted] and audition with Georgie and Skandar. I was a complete newbie, and hadn’t really done much film work, so I was very nervous in the audition. Then, Michael rang me up and told me I got the part, which was really great. I should also say that it’s been over two years since I first auditioned for the role. I had already done Son of Rambow at that point.
