Anson Boon is a quickly rising actor. In the past year he’s appeared in the alligator thriller Crawl and the multi-Oscar Nominated 1917. His latest film is the star-studded drama Blackbird, starring a who’s who of Hollywood greats.
I had a chance to speak to Anson about working on Blackbird. His interaction with the cast. Learning to play golf. Plus his love for Premiere League Soccer.
Anson was great. Awesome personality. Very personable and engaging guy. There was a very easy and natural flow to the conversation. He managed to share so many interesting things in the interview.
I had to ask him about working with all the major stars such as Susan Sarandon, Kate Winslet, Mia Wasikowska in the film. It was cool to hear Anson share their experience and how they bonded as a cast. They seemed to form real friendships making this movie. The coolest and most surprising part was him telling me about the cast getting matching blackbird tattoos!
Anson shared his interest in golf and how he has taken up the sport and hired an instructor to teach him how to golf. He encouraged me to try the same. I might actually consider that, it’s been on the back of my mind before.
Once I found out that Anson is a fan of football (soccer), it was on. He is a big Tottenham fan and of the EPL (English Premier League). We immediately started discussing this upcoming season and what to expect. That was a fun convo. Love talking sports and Anson certainly knows his stuff.
