Do you never want to start a band yourself because you are a Musicfreak?
Ofcourse! I can play a bit bassguitar and I got loads of tips from Gary Oldman during Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. He teached me how to play the bass line from Come Together from the Beatles. That must have been the coolest hour i've ever had with Gary. He also gave me some tips about girls that im certainly going to use. One is to check if a girl can work out with their parents. The rest is between Gary and I.

Do you change out music with the rest of the cast?

Yes, Gary is crazy about Audioslave because of me. He listens to loads of cool bands, but I was listening to Audioslave at the make-up room, and he got totaly crazy about it.And with Rupert Grint and Emma Watson? Rupert has a good musictaste. He listens a lot to Kings of Leon. And Emma.. Il try to get everyone to listen to Rockmusic, but that doesn’t work with Emma. She really has another taste. She listens to the Australian band Jet sometimes, but that’s all. I don’t even know what she really likes.. her taste isn’t mine.

Which Rockstar did you wanted to be when you were young?
David Bowie in his Ziggy Stardust period. I think I was about 14 and a little shorter than I am now. I even dressed up as David Bowie sometimes to go to a party. I could borrow costumes from the movie Velvet Goldmine and I could get them for a few days. I had make-up, eyeliner, the golden pants, shoes, a shirt with snakeskin print and a jacket. I looked fantastic. The theme of the party was "Grease" but I had forgotten that.

Can you still go to concerts?

Not really. I was at a show from Radiohead and the people around me kept staring at me. I have to say that being famous has also a good side. When I call a name of a band in an interview, il get two weeks later a whole box with stuff from that group. Relaxt isn’t it?

You are a huge fan from the Libertines, Pete Doherty and Carl Barat are both in new bands, Babyshamples ans Dirty Pretty Things. Can you choose between both?

It’s really hurts me to say this, but i’l go for Dirty Pretty Things then. Some people think Pete is a phethetic bastard, but I don’t think that. He makes great music and the drugs… yes.. you don’t know how it started and maybe he didn’t wanted to use it himself.

You also write songs. Can you tell us a bit more about it?
Well, there are more poems, but Im not going to say much about it. I think think im good enough. I mailed a few to people I know.. and they liked it, but I think I still have to work hard. If I ever have send a poem to a girl? Do you know the song Thou Shalt Always Kill? from Scroobius Pip and Dan le Sac? A bit if it goes like this: ‘Thou shalt not use poetry, art or music to get into girl’s pants, Use it to get into their heads’ I think that’s a cool way to get on with it.

Where are you listen to yourself?
Basicly everything. I always have the whole day my i-pod with me. When I was reading the last Potter book I was listening to Sigur Rós. Do you know them? They make instrumental music and they are really cool. They have an album that is called Takk. The Music fits perfect to the book. I realised I was in my own world. When I was finished reading I just kept listening. I didn’t knew what else to do. I still think about the end. It keeps me thinking.
