What was it like playing a dad?
"It was a lot of fun. It was different for me. I thought it was just a different character. Someone who didn't ask for this, you know? (Maisie is) obviously not his child and he didn't expect this to happen. In the beginning of the film he's kind of lost and doesn't take care of himself. I think he's very talented and smart, but he's not very ambitious. It's just out of kindness. His girlfriend is like, 'I'm about to lose custody of my child, can you marry me please?' And he's like, 'Okay.' Then she's not there, so he ends up in a weird situation with this little kid who no one takes care of."
Alexander, what's it like having a co-star who's so much cuter than you?
"[Laughing] Well, it's pretty cool. It makes it very easy for me to work with someone like Onata because her energy — you can tell just by watching five seconds of the film — it's so amazing and real. There are no false moments. It's all genuine and real. It's not only fun hanging out with her offset, but also in front of the camera. You get so much."
"Alexander: "Yeah, they weren't 3-D, that's true, so it didn't really make sense, but it was still kind of fun, wasn't it?"
