Though something of a star on home soil, actor Jack O’Connell is still relatively unknown on US shores. Until now. Taking on the starring role in Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken, we had the pleasure of sitting down with the actor to discuss his experience.

O’Connell speaks about the pressure playing somebody as revered as Louis Zamperini, and his own personal experiences meeting the man himself. He also speaks of his joy to be offered such a huge part, and what he has lined up in the future.

Unbroken is out on December 26th.
