Jacob Tremblay on learning from ‘Wonder’

    2018-January-31  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

Jacob Tremblay won plenty of acclaim for his portrayal of Jack, a boy who has been held captive with his mother since his birth, in the 2016 film “Room.” And now the 11-year-old is receiving praise for his role as Auggie in “Wonder,” a movie about a boy who has undergone 27 surgeries and is attending school for the first time.

Born in Vancouver, Canada in 2006, Tremblay began acting in television roles. He is an avid fan of the “Star Wars” franchise.

In an interview with CBS News, Tremblay shared what he has learned from “Wonder.”

Q: What got you excited about playing Auggie, a child who has facial differences, in “Wonder?”

A: When I heard about the message, I thought, “I gotta be part of that movie.” It’s very important to choose kindness and stop bullying.

Q: Have you ever been bullied in real life?

A: I’m lucky. I haven’t been bullied to the extent that Auggie was, but I have been picked on because I’m kind of short for my age, so I know how it feels and it doesn’t feel good.

Q: How do you maintain your self-confidence in situations like those?

A: The best thing is to go to your parents, because when I told my mom about it, she said she’d never want me to carry anything negative on my shoulders alone. She gave me advice to kill them with kindness, and if that doesn’t work, just ignore it.

Q: Did you get any feedback from children with facial differences?

A: I reached out to a group of children from a hospital affected by facial differences and I asked them for letters or anything they wanted me to know. I got a lot of letters from these children and I put them in a binder I had on set and I’d read it before I did my serious scenes.

Q: Did reading the letters help?

A: It did help me because there was one letter about the experience of being stared at and I remember reading that letter before I did that scene when Auggie walks into homeroom for the first time.

Q: What did you learn from working with Julia Roberts?

A: I definitely learned a lot by watching her act. I saw how focused and intact she is with her character and I saw how kind she is to everyone on set. That taught me no matter how famous you are, you can always choose kindness.(SD-Agencies)
