Having keenly followed the flourishing career of young British performer Will Poulter, it now seems he’s one of the most sought after actors in Hollywood, playing the leading antagonist in Wes Ball’s The Maze Runner.

We caught up with Poulter to discuss the role, putting on an American accent, and wrestling with co-lead Dylan O’Brien. We also asked about the forthcoming picture The Reverent, where Poulter stars alongside some bloke called Leonardo DiCaprio.

The Maze Runner is released on October 10th.
