  • - It's sort of a sad thought in a way

  • to think 10 years that on Saturday nights

  • I'm dressing up in the costume and putting the claws on.

  • (dramatic music)

  • We've got ourselves an X-Men fan.

  • Maybe a quarter of it happened, and not like this.

  • - This is so super exciting.

  • Thank you for taking the time talking to me.

  • - It is my pleasure.

  • - First I would love to know how do you feel about goodbyes?

  • (chuckles)

  • In general?

  • Not great at goodbyes.

  • I like them to be quick.

  • I sometimes will actually just avoid them.

  • I'm the guy at the party who just walks out

  • rather than say goodbye to everybody.

  • And in this case it took me 17 years

  • to say goodbye, so I was ready for it and I'm okay

  • but it was emotional last night watching the movie.

  • I was sitting next to Patrick Stewart and James Mangold,

  • the writer director, both of whom I've worked with

  • 16, 17 years so it was, it was a lot to take in.

  • - [Man] Logan, what did you do?

  • - [Man] Charles the world is not the same as it was.

  • Mutants, they're gone now.

  • - How would a good day for Logan look like?

  • Let's say he is retired,

  • he doesn't have a care in the world.

  • - I think he's on a boat.

  • I think he's probably on a boat

  • and there's a few, maybe possibly

  • one or two other people, but that's about it

  • and he's probably got a cigar and a beer

  • and he's fishing and it's easy.

  • Like I think he wants just

  • a simple, easy, uncomplicated life.

  • Sounds like most men I know.

  • (chuckles)

  • - You are not only a brilliant actor,

  • you also very talented as singer and dancer.

  • How would you stage a musical performance number

  • for the Wolverine?

  • - I wouldn't.

  • (laughing)

  • I'm obviously not that talented,

  • but I cannot see that working

  • in any way, shape, or form.

  • I'm not sure if I could see Wolverine himself

  • going to a musical, let alone being in one.

  • He'd just walk on there and anyone starts singing,

  • he would start fighting them.

  • (giggles)

  • Don't start, he'd be that guy, don't, don't, don't sing.

  • - [Man] This is what life looks like.

  • People who love each other, a home.

  • You should take a moment.

  • Feel it.

  • (dramatic music)

  • You still have time.

  • - I imagine when you play a character

  • for about 17 years, and then you have to say goodbye

  • it still will stay with you.

  • - Of course.

  • - Do you feel like there will be moments

  • in the future when you are going to let the Wolverine out?

  • - That's interesting.

  • Maybe, yeah.

  • It'd be, it's sort of a sad thought

  • in a way to think in 10 years on Saturday nights

  • I'm dressing up in the costume and putting the claws on.

  • But...

  • It doesn't leave you, it's like,

  • it's not just a memory, it's something

  • that you've helped to create so it's part of who you are

  • and always will be, so but it's been good therapy

  • for me for the past 17 years.

  • - Could you even imagine your life

  • or how it would look like if you wouldn't have gone

  • into acting, if you would've gone

  • a completely different way?

  • - Yeah I'd probably be sitting where you are.

  • I actually went to university and majored in journalism,

  • so I'd probably be where you are

  • and I would've enjoyed that.

  • I actually...

  • I, I even in acting you notice

  • I do lots of different things,

  • so I do believe there's more than one path necessarily

  • but nothing has, certainly when I was studying

  • to be a journalist and I compare it to when

  • I was studying to be an actor, the passion was

  • way higher being an actor.

  • I never missed a day.

  • The other one felt a little bit like a chore.

  • - So if you were sitting in my chair right now,

  • who would you like to interview?

  • Is there a person you would love to talk with?

  • - Oh a lot, yeah lots of people.

  • I'm interested in philosophers and I'm interested

  • in cutting edge sort of scientists and politicians.

  • That's probably, not a lot of actors.

  • I would, but you know I work and live with them

  • so maybe that's just not as interesting to me.

  • - And is there an actor maybe also from the past

  • you would like to have a chat with

  • you never had the chance to?

  • - Yeah, I like Cary Grant, Gregory Peck.

  • Paul Scofield, British actor.

  • I'd love to talk with those guys.

  • - Nice, thank you so much for the interview.

  • - My pleasure.

  • (dramatic music)

- It's sort of a sad thought in a way
