Asa Butterfield

Hugo film director, Martin Scorsese, took a long time to find decent child actor to portray the character of Hugo Crabret. When he saw a boy a boy named Asa Thornton F. Maxwell Butterfield (13) speak a few sentences at the time of audition Hugo film, Scorsese instantly find the answers. Hugo has been found.

Hi, Asa. Reportedly before join in Hugo, you're not familiar with the name of Martin Scorsese? Yeah, right. Though I've watched 2 movies he, Shutter Island, and The Departed. I wonder why those people (in the town of Asa, Islington - London) surprised to know I'm going to play in the Martin Scorsese film. I was really aware that he is a great director and the film is a film Hugo of the time we started filming. Hehehe .

The hardest part for her role as Hugo what?
Hugo crying scenes. Drain my energy and my mind really.

What are you doing when finished filming Hugo?
Home, playing PlayStation in my room. 

If you can make otomatons (robots in the film Hugo), whether the otomaton will be like you? 
I'll make him my bodyguard, who can hit people. My otomaton will be very large and wear cool glasses. 

There is no particular reason why you want to enter the world of acting?
Actually I had not intended to be an actor. But at the age of 7 years, I got an acting club The Young Actors Theatre in Islington, every friday for 3 years. Was fun.
