Oliver James Interview

By: Sindy

Hey peeps! I know, I know. I'm evil. I made you wait a whole week for more of my kickin' interview with Oliver James. This guy really made an impression in his debut movie role as Ian Wallace in What a Girl Wants. You guys can't stop singing his praises! Well, with no further waiting - here's the conclusion of my lushious chat with Oliver James! Enjoy!

Sindy:So after you filmed What a Girl Wants, you jumped the pond and moved from London to Los Angeles. Was it weird moving to another country and a totally different type of place?

Oliver: Los Angeles is very different from England, but I was kind of used to it. I used to vacation in the States a lot so it wasn't like I didn't know what to expect. Of course, living somewhere makes it a bit different, but I really enjoy it here. I mean, the weather is ultimately better than it is in London. There are a lot of things I enjoy about living in LA, but there are a lot of things I miss about living in London. It's nice that I get the opportunity to go home every once in a while.

Sindy: What do you miss most about London?

Oliver: Apart from family - I mean I have to say that first, they'd kill me if I didn't. (laughs) I guess I miss English soccer and racing. It's a series called Formula One that is not so big in the US but in the rest of the world it's pretty huge.

Sindy: So you mentioned your family, do you have a large family? Any brothers or sisters?

Oliver: No brothers or sister, just me, but I actually do have a big extended family. To be honest, I was ready to move away from home, but I've moved to the other side of the world. That's definitely a bit of a jump. I do miss them all but luckily I can just get on a plane.

Sindy: Okay, as I said before, I had trouble finding good information on you. In fact, some Web sites have your full name down as Oliver James III. Is that right?

Oliver: (laughs) Yahoo has named me Oliver James the third, but I'm not sure why. I think it has something to do about how actors register. I'm the third Oliver James actor to have appeared on their sites or something. I'm not third in line to the thrown of England or anything like that!

Sindy: You're a great actor and singer, and you did both in What a Girl Wants. Which one do you prefer, singing or acting?

Olvier: I don't have a preference, really, to be honest. I love both equally but they are, of course, very different. I did train in drama school but I always used to do voice lessons as well. I had a band in high school before I went to drama school. I guess I get different pelasures out of the both of them. In terms of a professional choice, I think those decisions might be made for me.

    a movie about the past 1997 it's retro 80s about a post apocalypse nucular war planet where you scavange to survive it's gory somewhat but a good movie about this kid who funds a lazer gun and becomes a hero and saves his friends!
