I'm not much of an animal person. I've got two dogs but I was never really into bugs and things. Last year in school, we dissected some animals but I felt queasy. I'm not really into biology. But going out to Galapagos and playing a part where you're interested in insects and stuff is quite fun to do because it is something different.
If the filming doesn't interfere with school and exams and, I know this is a lot to ask for, if it's a good director, and a good script, then yeah, I will do another film. But I don't need to work. Doing films is fun but it's nice having a normal life with friends.
