Douglas Booth made a splash in the UK playing Boy George in the television film, Worried About the Boy. The 21-year-old actor has yet to have that big breakthrough in North America, but I have a feeling that’ll change this year. He has three films scheduled in 2014 including Jupiter Ascending with Channing Tatum and Darren Aronofsky’s biblical epic, Noah. Booth appears in an editorial snapped by Nick Haddow for Rollacoaster magazine. Check out the pics below, along with a few quotes from the accompanying interview.

On Noah Director Darren Aronofsky

“I didn’t feel intimidated by him at all. It’s good not to give a shit about how you look. I feel intimidated by not-so-good filmmakers. He’s really respectable to his actors, but he wants you to go as far a possible.”

On Working With Boy George

“We spent lots and lots of time together. His autobiography is so honest. When he’s being brutally honest with you he finishes it with this awkward laugh and look to the side [sharply motions away from me with head]. He’s very brave, he’s persistent and doesn’t give a shit and I took that on to a certain extent. He has stayed with me personally and I feel very close and attached to him still. If anyone slags him off, I get very protective. I’ve shared his heart with him, in a weird way.”

On Picking Roles

“Bring me challenges. I like the idea of it. I want to be on the edge of something – like the Boy George thing. At the beginning I was on the verge of a cliff… I jump and land or hit the rocks. It’s so hard to find the really good [roles] – it is rarely around and highly competitive to get.”
