Playing Auggie in 'Wonder' was 'hard' for Jacob Tremblay

Friday, December 01, 2017

Actor Jacob Tremblay, who had to wear prosthetics to play a boy born with facial deformity in his new film 'Wonder', said the role was a challenge for him.
The 11-year-old actor stars along side Owen Wilon and Julia Roberts in the Stephen Chbosky-directed drama based on a book by the same name.

"It was hard sometimes, and there were days when I really got tired of it. The anti-bullying message of the film was the main reason I did it," the 'Room' actor said in a statement.

"Bullying mostly takes place at school, and school needs to be a place where kids can feel safe, so they can learn. They can't do that if kids are judging them," he added.

Tremblay revealed that his character and him are both 'Star Wars' fanatics and said that it helped him get into the depth of the cosmic fantasies of his character. "Auggie knows it takes people some time to get used to him. So I think that’s why he loves space and he’d rather be in a space suit," Tremblay said.
