What first attracted you to the role of Harland in Pixie?
I love the chemistry between the three of you. How did you build that chemistry offscreen, and how do you view Harland's relationship with both of them?
It sounds like you had a lot of backstory in mind for Harland. Did you discuss it with Barnaby or was it all from your mind and the script?
The comedy and trauma of Pixie are almost absurd, and yet your characters are relatively grounded. How do you approach that dichotomy as an actor?
Not to say that I believe Ireland really has gangster priests or anything, however it does feel a lot of the elements of the story had to take place in Ireland. Did shooting on location assist inform your characters or your story?
One of my favorite scenes was Pixie opening up about her past romance, which is a huge change from how she acts when it comes to romance in the present. How do you view Harland' outlook on romance, as well as how does his adventure reshape it over the course of the film?
The church scene seemed both hilarious as well as potentially physically exhausting. Was that a new experience, in terms of how it was rehearsed or filmed?
What are you currently shooting?
You also filmed for Wheel of Time, right? How was that experience for you?
Pixie is now playing in select theaters, on digital as well as as needed.
