Alexander Newton Q&A

Jan 06, 2012

British actor/musician Alexander Newton has been dubbed one of the faces to watch this year by magazines and gossip blogs. His new movie Justice/Vengeance, a thriller set in World War II, is about to hit theaters in North America at the end of this month. Find out more about him in this Kidzworld Q&A!

KW: How old are you and where are you from?

  • Alexander: I’m 19 years old and I’m from London, England.

KW: How did you first become involved in acting?

  • Alexander: I was a toddler, my dad was making a TV show presented by kids and he casted my friend and I. It was really fun from what I remember, and I fell in love with the camera. 

KW: You star in the film Justice/Vengeance, what is it about?

  • Alexander: Justice/Vengeance is a revenge thriller with a tragic love story and strong messages about racism and prejudice. The story is told in 1941 and modern times. 

KW: What is your character like, do you feel you relate to them strongly?

  • Alexander: Joseph escapes the murder of his family and sets out on a journey to find inner peace. Two-time Oscar nominee Roy Scheider plays the older version of the character and does a phenomenal job. When building the character I was able to draw on what I knew about the era and what people in his shoes went through. Whenever dealing with a story that's so tragic, one really can't help but become emotionally attached. 

KW: What was your favorite part of filming?

  • Alexander: Getting to work with my dad every single day, learning all about the way films are made, working with great actors. The whole thing! 

KW: You’re also a musician, how would you describe your sound?

  • Alexander: Forever evolving.  

KW: What is something most people don’t know about you?

  • Alexander: I have a desire to build and fly jet planes.   

KW: Do you have any hobbies?

  • Alexander: Besides building planes?! Haha. I'm actually very lucky to get paid for my hobbies. However I did just get a Nintendo 3DS so if I become a pro gamer - blame Mario! 

KW: What is the best advice you’ve received since becoming an actor?

  • Alexander: "Acting is a child-like belief in the make believe" - Roy Scheider. 

KW:  Are you working on anything/filming anything right now?

  • Alexander: I'm producing and recording an album with some great people and prepping to film a number of movies in 2012. 

Your Fave… 

Band: Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band - A.K.A - well you know.... 

Movie: Friends With Benefits

Sport: Extreme Motor Home Racing 

Color: Blurple, but speaking from a quantum perspective, pure light because it contains every color. Some may say.. it's a supercolor.

I've been meaning to find more horror animes to watch, actually. A little more classic would probably be Blood-C. Less classic is Death Note, given it's more of a physiological horror. And, Corpse Party: Tortured Souls.
