Personal Quote:

[on Hailee Steinfeld] I think she has a natural awareness of what she needs to do in front of the camera. She's got that freshness and that immediacy which is so exciting. You can see it in her eyes all through her performance as Juliet. There's a real light behind her eyes. That's going to stand her in good stead for film acting. See more »

Trivia:

Before his recent big screen appearances, Lewis was a stage actor for the Royal Shakespeare Company. See more »
