Does failure scare you?
I think it scares everyone, doesn’t it? But I think humans are immune to comfort, or at least the ones who want to succeed. I like living outside that comfort zone. I don’t know what I’m doing next, I don’t know if I’ll ever get to make a film again, but I have a higher standard of living and maybe a higher life than most – but you only get that by taking risks.

How did Stormbreaker change things for you?
I don’t think I was very good in it and if you haven’t seen it don’t worry, you’re probably better off. I went to three top private schools, I do have a brain, I love acting and one day I hope to direct. Anyway, in answer to the question, Stormbreaker changed things for me because it opened doors.

How do you handle fame?
I’m lucky because I’ve kind of slipped past all that Closer magazine stuff. I’ll promote my films but if you ask a personal question I’ll say ‘No comment’. I understand journalists want something to write about, but I don’t talk about personal stuff and that’s a choice I’ve made.

Do you enjoy modelling?

I loved modelling. I don’t like cheesy photos, but I loved doing the Burberry campaign. Not a lot of actors are comfortable being still in front of a camera, but I’m fine with it.

What’s a great day off for you?
I love rock climbing, I love racing cars, I love my dog Lincoln, who’s a rottweiller.

What are your ambitions?
I’d love to direct, but I’m only 19 – I could give this all up and start a new life. But I love what I do and there’s nothing else I’d want to be doing right now.
Tormented is out on DVD on the 28th of September.
