SILENT PERSUASION. Little quiet and standoffish, Booboo Stewart is a man of few words. Yet, there is something in his searching eyes that reveal much more than words could express
A deep, intense gaze and a thoughtful pause before answering each interview question, the contemplative actor is one who says what he means and means what he says. The stillness and quietude in him, rather than putting him in the back seat, only intensify his allure. His role as a shape-shifter in the “Twilight” films was a perfect match, and just when it seems that Stewart could face the dangers of being type-casted as the dark, brooding type, he unexpectedly revealed a story of touring with pre-“Wrecking Ball” Miley Cyrus, when the singer was better known as Disney’s Hannah Montana back then. The stark contrast between his quiet personality and his role as a part of the Disney teen sensation leads to more questions to who Stewart really is. The many facets of the dark-haired actor seem deeply buried and only the select few have access to it. To get to know Booboo Stewart could be achieved not by asking questions, but through his performances and the roles he carefully selected, which afforded glimpses of the enigmatic actor’s persona. Cool, calm and collected, the twenty- year-old actor opens up about being a martial artist, having superhuman abilities and how he got his catchy nickname.
DA MAN: Hi Booboo, how’s it going? Let’s talk about the recently released “X-Men:
Days of Future Past” film. You played the character Warpath, an indestructible mutant. How did you get into the mindset of someone who possessed a superhuman ability?
Booboo Stewart: Hi! Really, it was more about getting physically prepared. That put me in the right mental space.
DA: Your character, Warpath had the power of flight. If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
BS: To be a wizard and have all the powers.
DA: What was it like being a part of such a talented cast in “X-Men: Days of Future Past”?
BS: Amazing and humbling.
DA: Talking about “X-Men,” are you a comic book fan?
BS: I love graphic novels. “The Crow” would be my favorite.
DA: If you could go on a date with a comic book character, who would it be?
BS: Good question! Maybe Mystique, because she can look however you want her to.
