If you saw the Hugo movie (rated PG) based on The Invention of Hugo Cabret, then you will recognize the British actor Asa Butterfield. He is only 16-years-old but already, he has made a bunch of movies that were once books, like The Boy in the Striped Pajamas (rated PG-13) and Ender’s Game (coming next November). Not only is he a great actor and a big reader, he’s got some other interests too. Read on.

Q: If you could change one thing in the world, what would it be?
Asa: Oh, this is a tough question. If I could change one thing in the world, I mean, the obvious thing is probably to end poverty. That would be the top of my list.

Q: I found out about Red Nose Day because of One Direction. Did you participate in that?
Asa: Yeah. I think pretty much everyone in the U.K. does that. My school, we have Non-School Uniform Day and everyone has to come in wearing something red and then you donate. So that was fun.

Q: I also read that you’re into writing music.
Asa: Music is such a big part of my life. I couldn’t live without it. I’m almost constantly listening to music when I’m not in school. When I’m doing work, I listen to music as well. But I like all sorts. I like dance music. I like hip hop. I like funk. I like jazz. It’s a really wide range of genres. I use Logic [software]. I really enjoy making house music, like old school house and garage, that sort of thing.

Just a typical British teenager – who happens to be a movie star!
