Alex Russell is an Australian born actor who is playing Billy Nolan in Kimberly Pierce's upcoming Carrie reboot. Maria Lewis recently interviewed Russell about the film.
“The original is a classic but the way Kimberley Pierce is playing everything, I feel like her spin on it is going to be so different,” he said.
“It’s a very valid, justifiable remake of a classic.
“It’s a thing that’s really going to stand on its own.”
Russell only recently watched the original 1976 version of the film and is currently reading King's novel.
“I’m so excited to be able to meet Julianne Moore, (and) Chloe Moretz.
“I feel like I’m going to be sort of rocking up and surrounded by artists I admire.
“Hopefully I can keep my cool and not get nervous.”
Carrie is due to drop on March 15, 2013.
