Did Smit-McPhee, now 14, draw on his own adolescent pain for Owen?
"There are just things I get confused about sometimes," he confesses. "Like, I'm here in America, and I have friends here and stuff, and then I miss my friends back at home, and I'm juggling it all. And then I go home, and I miss my friends back here, and I just don't really know where I want to be. But I just right now want to go back home — I'm having fun doing all this, but I'd like to go home and relax, ride my bike, and do normal stuff."
Does he have a favorite vampire movie that he might have been inspired by?
"I actually like Twilight. You have to be 'Team Edward' because he's just so epic and awesome. And he's a vampire."
