Kodi Smit-McPhee - Let Me InWhat do you what audiences to feel about Let Me In?
Kodi Smit-McPhee: "I don't know. I hope they like it. I hope they don't think too much of the other one and hopefully they appreciate it and see what the director wanted to say, Matt Reeves. And I think it's pretty awesome."
Is the tone the same as the original film?
Kodi Smit-McPhee: "Definitely. The feeling of it is just...it's not like any other movie. It's got a real disturbing kind of feeling to it. When you see the bullying scenes, it's kind of weird because it's really real. It's kind of scary."
How was that for you to act in?
Kodi Smit-McPhee: "It's pretty fun because I actually ended up being really good friends with all the boys so it was pretty funny."
Tell me about working with Chloe Moretz and what it was like between you two?
Kodi Smit-McPhee: "It was pretty awesome. I haven't ever really worked with someone my age through a whole film, so it's a pretty good experience. She's a really talented and intense actor."
How has your Comic Con experience been?
Kodi Smit-McPhee: "Comic Con's pretty crazy. I came here and my first experience with seeing a guy in Speedos and he smelled really bad."
Have you gone on the floor and bought anything?
Kodi Smit-McPhee: "It would have made sense if I went on the floor with money, but I went today and I didn't have money again so I don't know what I was thinking. Still, it was fun."
Have you seen anything cool?
Kodi Smit-McPhee: "I went to a panel today and it was really nerve-wracking. There was like 8,500 people there and then after I left apparently someone got stabbed in the eye. Like, what is that?"
Talk about working with Matt Reeves. What was he like?
Kodi Smit-McPhee: "He's awesome because you feel really confident as an actor because he likes to do the takes over and over and over again until he gets what he wants, and then you know as an actor that you've done good."
