Max with his House at the End of the Street co-star, Jennifer Lawrence.
BC: Now that we’re getting personal, we heard you own a whopping 19 pets. How do you take care of them all?
MT: Actually, 19 pets was a rough estimate I used to give when I was younger. I grew up on a farm, and at one point, my family had about six dogs, a handful of horses, some cats, a bunny, chickens, and even a parrot! Now, I own two dogs.
BC: You co-starred with Jennifer Lawrence. Were the kissing scenes awkward?
MT: Well, by that point, we were pretty good friends and there was nothing awkward about it. Okay – maybe it was awkward the very first time, but it became very normal after the initial take.
BC: Were any pranks pulled on set?
MT: There was one that had us all dying from laughter. One time, Nolan [Funk, who plays the character Tyler] was doing his broken leg scene and the director thought it’d be funny not to call “cut”. So, he ended up screaming for about 10 minutes and had to take quick breaths from time to time. But he didn’t stop until the director finally yelled “cut”. It was hysterical.
BC: Do you keep in touch with your co-stars?
MT: I still speak to Jennifer from time to time. I enjoyed working with the cast and look forward to seeing what they’ll do next.
BC: What will you take away from your experience?
MT: I’ve gained something from each movie I’ve worked on. For House at the End of the Street, I had the chance to play a character different from anyone else I’ve ever played before. It was an amazing experience!
