Here is the transcript:

Q:  What was your favorite part about being able to work with Catherine Hardwicke as your director?

Max:  She’s got a child-like imagination and an infectious energy, which is what you need when you’re doing a movie about a wolf.

Q:  Did you ever read Little Red Riding Hood when you were little?

Max:  I never read it. I would have been told it, but the thing about fairy tales is that you never remember the first time you heard it.

Q:  What are the differences and similarities between the Little Red Riding Hood story and the film?

Max: Forget what you know about Little Red Riding Hood and leave it at the door. Ours is much edgier and darker and far more exciting.

Q:  What was it like working with the legendary Gary Oldman?

Max:  It was amazing watching a seasoned professional like him. You learn so much.

Q:   How did you guys make the characters you played in Red Riding Hood your own? Were they easy to connect with?

Max:  Aside from the wolf, which requires the imagination, a love triangle in one form or another is something I’m sure we’ve all experienced.

Q:   What do you look for in a girl? Does she need to wear a red hood? LOL

Max:  Yes, she has to wear a red hood. It’s incredibly important.

Q:  Given the choice, would you rather be a werewolf or a vampire? Why?

Max:  I’d rather be a robot. Way cooler.

Q:  What was the most embarrassing moment while filming Red Riding Hood?

Max:  Amanda Seyfried, at any opportunity, tries to embarrass you. So many. Mainly about me being English.

Q: If you could have played any character in film history or worked with any actor/director, who would it be?

Max:  I would have liked to work with Stanley Kubrick. I’ll get back to you re: character.

Q: You have chosen this career despite your parents’ “optimistic remarks”. Have you ever experienced what they warned you about?

Max:  Good question. Yes. You know, acting is an unstable business. You have to have thick skin and remember why you’re doing what you do.

Q: What was your favorite set/scene of the movie? Or your favorite prop you were able to use? Why?

Max:  Riding through a forest on a massive white stallion. Not really a prop, but hey, good fun.

Q:  When will you be on the London stage again? You are so brilliant.

Max:  As soon as possible. When I have acting dreams, it always involves stage.

Q:  Do you have a Twitter of your own???

Max:  I don’t. Wouldn’t know what to do with it.

Q:  Any fun memories from set?

Max:  Listening to Gary Oldman endlessly, I mean ENDLESSLY, singing Beatles covers.

Q:  If you could only take one item with you on an island, what would it be?

Max:  A special girl.

Q:  Finally, why should everyone go see Red Riding Hood on March 11th?

Max: Because it’s going to be a dark re-imagining of something that means so much to people. Plus we’ve got an amazing cast.
