  • Logan, an absolute pleasure to meet you.

  • Thank you very much, pleasure to meet you.

  • What happened back there. That's every day. Don't get too close to any one.

  • You see this right here? That is you heart line. You are going to have one great love

  • in your life.

  • As I was coming out the screening room, everyone was like, 'He was incredible!' Your name was

  • the one that was being mentioned the most.

  • Oh, cool.

  • When you got the phone call saying you'd got the role, how did you react?

  • There was about 10 seconds of joy and then after that it was- feel the weight of the

  • responsibility on my shoulders and I was pretty stressed out trying to- I was really inspired

  • but I just kept thinking about where I was gonna go with the role and what I was gonna

  • do with Norman and start the research and the whole process started, you know?

  • And a massive A-list cast, Brad Pitt, Shia, when you found out you were working with those

  • names, was that just totally overwhelming for you?

  • Yeah. I mean I wouldn't say it was totally overwhelming. I was just excited to collaborate

  • with them. I was always a big fan of all these guys.

  • In the film, you were like brothers, you were so close, was it like that on set? Did you

  • fool around but also you were really there for each other?

  • I wouldn't say- There was a little bit of fooling around but we were really there for

  • each other and we were very close. We spent a lot of time together. Got to know everything

  • about each other really.

  • They're coming.

  • How many?

  • 300 of them.

  • The tank's busted.

  • We never run before, why we gonna run now?

  • I'm gonna hold the crossroad.

  • What are you doing?

  • It's my home.

  • I'm staying here with you.

  • First day on set, was there any good advice he gave you?

  • He didn't. I get that question a lot, most people don't go, 'Hey kid, here's some

  • advice for you.'

  • That's true.

  • Nobody does that. Usually kind of arrogant and cocky and that's not really Brad.

  • Brad's very respectful and humble and he looks at his cast members as collaborators and is really

  • just trying to collaborate on the material and make it good. I can't say I got advice

  • from him.

  • Now mentally and physically challenging role. Can you talk us through the military training

  • you went through. How tough was it?

  • It was pretty difficult. It wasn't easy. But, again, we're actors playing soldier so there

  • were moments where we were very immersed in this experience where we were physically exhausted

  • and sleep deprived and then I'm thinking, 'Wait, we're just- We're playing

  • soldier right now, this is not the real deal.' It's humbling to think about what

  • the real soldiers go through so I can't really complain about our experience.

  • What about emotionally preparing yourself for the role?

  • That was tough.

  • Throughout the whole thing, even your face, you look completely terrified the whole way

  • through. How did you emotionally prepare yourself? Was there any research you did? Any people

  • you spoke to?

  • There was a lot of things that I did. Some of the things I just can't really talk about,

  • to be honest. I don't even know how to creatively avoid it.

  • How does it feel being back in the UK where you filmed it?

  • I love it here.

  • Obviously in Oxfordshire last night.

  • Yeah.

  • How was it for? Do you love all the English grub, the English people?

  • I love the English people. This is one of my favourite places in the world. It almost

  • seemed like- I don't want to say wasted opportunity but we were so immersed in this movie that

  • we didn't get to enjoy the country as much because- London's one of my favourite cities

  • and I'm really interested in and fascinated in English culture, this is the first place

  • I ever went to outside of the country, was going to England. I was 16, it was where I

  • wanted to go. I have a great love for this place but whilst filming it was work, hotel

  • room to sleep, work, sleep, work sleep and that was it.

  • You've got to go back and have a good roast dinner in one of the lovely country pubs,

  • it's so nice.

  • I'll come back for vacation, when I'm not working and then I can really enjoy it.

  • Just one last thing, obviously a really tough role, has it been a really hard one to shake

  • off? Did you think it took quite a long time to get back to normal?

  • Emotionally, I was actually just happy to get out of the world. I was like, 'Thank

  • God this is over, I don't need to be here any more. It's been a pleasure working with

  • you guys, I'm out.'

  • Then partied afterwards.

  • Not even. I didn't even go for the party.

  • You're joking!

  • I'm not kidding. Literally, we rapped and I was like, 'I love you guys so much, this

  • was an amazing experience.' And I have a great love for everybody on the cast and crew but

  • I was like, 'I'm exhausted, I gotta go,'

  • Have you sent the odd text to Brad Pitt or anything?

  • Do we talk?

  • Yeah.

  • Yeah, sure. We all talk. We all talk, all the time

  • I love that. Well, can I just say, one of the best films I've seen this year and you

  • were absolutely incredible.

  • Thank you very much.

  • Thank you very much, lovely to meet you. Thank you so much.

  • Thank you.

Logan, an absolute pleasure to meet you.
