Here is what Josh had to share with Daman.
On advice to newcomers trying to stay sane in Hollywood
I think the key for that is to keep your focus on work. I’ve seen a lot of people who come here and talk a lot of shit and not achieve anything because they have their own idea of what Hollywood is like. They think it’s all about parties and beautiful people and fun times with their friends at the beach. If you want to achieve anything here, you have to be 110% dedicated to your goal while also having the discipline to focus on your craft. At the end of the day, if you want something bad enough, you’ll get it no matter what.
On moving to the States
You know the world isn’t as big as we make it out to be. For me, I felt a strong urge to come to the States to get out of my comfort zone and keep me on my toes. So I went to New York first and then came to Los Angeles. I think that’s why so many Brits and Aussies are working in the industry today, because we all need visa’s to work here and to get one you need to get a job here (well, at least in my case I did). So when you get off that plane you are breaking your back to make sure you get a job. Plus it helps that the weather’s nice in California!
On inspirational actors
Gary Oldman, I think, is truly exceptional. There are very few who take the risks and make the choices he does. Not only that, but everytime I watch him, I see him enjoying himself, and for me, that’s the key to it all. When you enjoy yourself during a scene, you free yourself up so much more – Meryl Streep is another great example of that.
