To mark the third and final instalment into the popular Maze Runner franchise, we had the pleasure of once again sitting down with the film’s leading star Dylan O’Brien during his visit to London.
O’Brien is a guaranteed good interview, and yet again he didn’t disappoint. We discussed with him the support of the franchises’ loyal fanbase, and how much the character of Thomas means to him, and just how sad he is that it’s all coming to an end.
The film was supposed to be released a year ago, but O’Brien suffered a serious injury on set which delayed the shoot, and we asked about that experience, and why it gives the film’s release an even more significant meaning to himself and the cast and crew. That all being said, we still see him as a future action hero of the silver screen and so discussed whether he harbours any ambitions to considered as such (which led into a discussion about a potential role in the Expendables movie – which we’re fully behind).
Finally we talk about his aspirations to direct one day and look back on some of the short movies he made when younger. One of which featured a proposal to an older lady – who said no. Bet she regrets that now.
Thomas leads some escaped Gladers on their final and most dangerous mission yet. To save their friends, they must break into the legendary Last City, a WCKD-controlled labyrinth that may turn out to be the deadliest maze of all. Anyone who makes it out alive will get answers to the questions that the Gladers have been asking since they arrived in the maze.
Maze Runner: The Death Cure is released on January 26th, and you can read our review here.
