“When I was eight years old, I watched ‘Indiana Jones’ for the first time. I fell in love with movies then and I wanted to be that guy,” he told Total Film.

“I was a big fan of ‘Harrison Ford’ when I was younger, so, even though he wasn’t Arnold Schwarzenegger, he was still a guy who was able to kick a*s and be charming and witty and be intelligent. So I loved that!”

After working in action movies, he became interested in other genres also.

“I wanted the material that I wasn’t getting. I wanted to represent my acting. I had been passing on my action material – just wasn’t for me,” the star added.
