[Lynn] What was your favorite birthday?
Oh, that's a really good question.
I'm someone that runs and hides from birthdays.
I've really never had many birthday parties,
but I remember my 26th birthday being kind of cool,
because a few things happened.
I was doing a workshop for a play in Sydney
at the Sydney Theatre Company,
and I got some pretty cool gifts here.
My brother gave me a DVD player, I think,
and I thought that was pretty awesome.
I thought my day was done and it was all very cool,
and then I got a phone call
saying I had a job in Star Wars.
So that was pretty rad.
[Lynn] That sounds great.
Yeah, that was awesome,
'cause I'm a massive Star Wars fan,
and the planets really aligned for that for me.
And I know I'm only in the movie for like five minutes,
but whatever, I got to be a part of that world
that I'd admired
and never, ever dreamed that I would be an actor
in one of those movies.
[Lynn] That's amazing.
[Lynn] That's super cool
