A MONSTER CALLS
LEWIS MacDOUGALL (Conor)
Lewis MacDougall was 12 years old when he filmed A Monster Calls. He is now 14
His transition from being a junior drama club member in his home town of
Edinburgh, Scotland to being in major motion pictures happened quickly. His club
drama teacher saw his potential and suggested that he join the more advanced
acting group. On his first attendance, the casting director Orla O'Connor
visited scouting for young talent to be in Joe Wright's Pan. After a lengthy
audition process spanning several weeks and several audition sessions, Mr.
MacDougall was cast as Peter's best friend Nibs, who features in the early
orphanage sequences of the movie.
He enjoyed the stunt training and learning a Cockney accent for the role.
He was signed at that point by an agent who subsequently brought him to the
attention of the casting director of A Monster Calls. Whilst filming in
Barcelona, Mr. MacDougall, a huge football (a.k.a. soccer, in the U.S.) fan, was
lucky enough to see Barcelona play on their home ground.
He has since completed filming the movie Boundaries, written and directed by
Shana Feste, in which he portrays Vera Farmiga's character's son, and the
grandson of the character played by Christopher Plummer.
