Tell us a bit about yourself.
I'm an aspiring actor, whether or not I'm any good is a different kettle of fish. I do like to sing and also do karate, I've been doing that for seven or so years; so I'm reasonably good at it.
How would you describe yourself as a person?
Reasonably intelligent. Fairly charismatic, good-looking, clever. You know, fairly modest too. haha I'm quite normal... I'd like to think I'm normal.
What is your proudest moment ever?
Hmm proudest moment ever… I got awarded a laptop by my school because I had excellent GCSE results! I'm only young so I haven't done that many things that are cool, but I think getting given a laptop because you’re intelligent is a good thing.
What's your best subject at school?
History or drama.
What have you done drama wise that you have had most fun with?
Right now I'm doing a play called “Metamorphosis” for my A-levels, and I have to act as a giant dung beetle. I don't actually have any poo to play with, which I don't know whether is unfortunate or not. Basically this guy works his arse off for his family and then he turns into a beetle; it's really odd stuff and I have to do loads of physical theatre. I'm the only boy in a class of ten girls, which was interesting when I first started. I have to go to a girls school because mine doesn't offer it. I got stared at.
Are you popular with the girls?
Well… popular, how would you define popular? People who don't know me like me. I'd say that I have a lot of close friends that are girls, who can take the constant biting sarcasm I spew out; uncontrollable word vomit. Yeah, I have a lot of female friends, whether or not they are interested in me that way or people I don't know are interested in me that way. I'm only young.
What is the saddest thing you have ever experienced?
Well when I was seven I thought the saddest thing that ever happened was my fish trying to kill itself behind the filter, and I found it floating the next day. I was like "Mum he's dead!" That was my first meeting with death. When my grandmother died and we went over to Ireland, that was the first time I'd ever seen my mum really upset, so that really upset me and hit me because I was quite young. I never had a proper relationship with my nan as she lived in Ireland, but I have a close relationship with my mum, so I found it quite distressing to see her upset. That was hard.
What lessons have you learned whilst growing up?
One of the most important lessons was to keep myself quite reserved, because I was sort of an emotional child; in the way my dad used to say I wore my heart on my sleeve. I learned to keep myself to myself, and to listen. I'm quite a good listener, so I learn and don't give too much away. I think that’s quite important in life. Save who you really are for the people you care most about. I don't give away everything at once; I'm like a mine.
So every time we meet you, we'll get to peal a new layer?
Yes, today you got ducks. Next time who knows what will happen. I like ducks. A duck cannot fly backwards. Fact.
That makes you a really interesting person.
Yes, sexy and mysterious haha.
Any other things you've learnt?
Don't piss people off when you're in a situation where they can hurt you. I think that's a standard one. Keep your friends close and your enemies as far away as possible. Preferably several hundred miles.

Hey Fionn! How’s it going?
Hello. Very good thanks, how are you?
I’m good. So you did the Peter Pan shoot? How was that?
I did! It was excellent, really fun! Minus the jumping around shirtless in a field wearing pyjama bottoms with no shoes or socks on, trying to avoid horseshit. So I curse you for that Cecilie Harris! Haha Well people I know walked by.
(He loved it, really....and so did his mum. And so will you.)
What people you know? Was this near where you live?
The shoot was near my house, yes.
Goodness, wow. Okay. I assumed it’d be a field where nobody knew you but…
No no, lots of locals walked by having a s******. You know.
Well there we go, what’s modeling for if you’re not going to humiliate yourself every now and again.
Did I mention me holding a dressing gown like a cape whilst doing it? So you know, I am now the biggest weirdo in my town.
What do you think of our nickname for you?
Peter Pan? Well I resented it at first, but it’s better than being called Jamie Bell, who now I think looks like a crack head at the moment, and I was called that earlier, so I was thinking uhh… it could be worse. At least he’s ginger.
You’ve grown now, so you’re not as… you’re definitely different.
I’m not as youthful!
You’re old! You’re an old man!
(bows his head in shame) I’ll go…
(He still looks youthful. We have image proof.)
Haha. And apart from jumping around fields, what do you like to do in the summer?
I don’t even like to do that! I like to sit down and read books! I’m a thinker, not a do-er.
You’re a thinker.
Philosopher, I say.
Are you reading anything at the moment?
I am currently reading Trainspotting by Irvine Welsh. I love it so much.
Did you know that Katie Eary uses Irvine Welsh as inspiration?
Oh does she?
Yeah, all of the books.
You should send this video to her so she’s knows that I like Irvine Welsh.
I will actually! And we are featuring the video in a few days.
