Q. I believe you're a fan of the 11 books so far, what
is it about them that makes them so special?
Emily: I just like the fact that the way they're written
is not patronising towards kids. They don't underestimate the
intelligence of the kids reading them and they sort of are, yes,
a little bit dangerous and kind of dark, but I think kids really
like that and I think that's one of the reasons they're so popular.
Jim Carrey: That's a smart answer for a kid.
Q. Are you as bright a spark as the character you play
in this movie? Do you like to read and are you as good at taking
Liam: I really like to read, I read a lot, but I just
don't remember everything I read.
Q. What was it like working
with someone who improvises a lot of the time? Does it make it
harder to act, or more frustrating?
Emily: It's kind of hard sometimes, because when you
don't know what to expect, it's hard not to laugh. I mean, he
would stick to the script a couple of times in a row, but the
third time he would laugh, and then, you know, if you hear a joke,
you can still think it's funny, but you won't crack up every time.
You just do something completely different, so there are a lot
of takes, and I think he enjoys making us laugh. He enjoyed us
Q. Your Australian accent reveals you're a long way from
home. But you have a very good American accent in the film. Did
you surprise anyone with that?
A. Um, not a lot. Whenever I had finished the scene I
would go back into my Australian accent; it was really maybe cos
when I was little, a lot of the shows I would watch on TV were
American shows and we had so much American stuff over in Australia,
so I didn't have a coach or anything, it just sort of happened
when I was a little kid.
