New Layouts + Photoshoots Update

written by Jasper XV.X

After 84 2 years, I have finally put up new layouts for the main site and the gallery! It features some of Brenton’s photoshoots from last year. I hope you love it as much as I do! The original plan was to apply this, along with an extensive gallery update, before the Titans premiere, but life happened and I couldn’t make it in time. So for now, I have updated the gallery with several photoshoot additions back from 2012 up to 2017, including some magazine scans. Check them out!

Brenton Thwaites for Wonderland Magazine

The fifth serving from the Pirates of The Caribbean franchise – which landed on screens last Thursday – invaded the area, which by sheer chance is the hometown of its newest star, Brenton Thwaites. “I’ve kind of been moving to America for the last 10 years,” the baby-faced 27-year-old actor laughs, “but every time I try, I get a job back home.” Today, the Gold Coast native has flown almost 10,000 miles to set, so I hold back my moan-ologue detailing my two-tubes-and-a-bus commute that I scripted on the way.

As we sink into fat armchairs in a corner of the studio, Thwaites tells me of his formative years Down Under. “I was very ambitious,” he explains, “I wanted to do darker stuff and I wanted to portray characters like I’d seen in Candy and Good Will Hunting, flawed characters that eventually overcome [their problems].” Now playing Henry in Salazar’s Revenge, a British soldier and son of the cursed William Turner (Orlando Bloom), Thwaites’ CV amounts to a sizeable list of challenging roles. In Home & Away (which seems to serve as a secondary drama school for Aussie actors) he played an abusive boyfriend and thuggish gang member, while he transformed into a “gay heroin addict who was struggling to come out to his father” for naval drama, Sea Patrol.

Just before those debut roles, Pirates of The Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearlhad its first airing. “To me, it was just another movie coming out,” Thwaites shrugs. In all fairness, he was just 14. “Looking back, it was a feat for its time because it had state of the art CGI, a great story, it was funny, adventurous and action packed and we all just fell in love with Jack Sparrow. I just remember thinking, ‘I haven’t seen anything like this.’”

“It was weird,” he says of his first scenes with the inimitable Johnny Depp. “It still is weird. I don’t think that weirdness will ever go away. I mean, usually after you do a week’s worth of work, it just becomes work. On Pirates, I never lost that sense of excitement.” Shared scenes were aplenty, as the plot intertwines the lives of Henry Turner and Jack Sparrow, with Henry hunting for the captain to enlist him on a mission to free his father. On their escapades the pair meet the empowered and educated astronomer Carina, played by Thwaites’ fellow newcomer, Kaya Scodelario. “She’s a great actress,” he gushes of his co-star. “I saw her work on Skins so I was a super fan and it’s definitely a different side of her that we’re seeing in Pirates.”

Salazar’s Revenge recruited not only new leads, but a fresh directorial duo in Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg. Their inclusion, in part, encouraged Thwaites to audition for the film. “I was excited that these two new directors had a new vision, a passion and excitement for the franchise,” he enthuses. “They have sharp ideas. When they say, ‘we’re going to go big,’ they’ve already got ideas about how to make it bigger.” The most extravagant scenes? “Aboard the ships when we’re doing fight scenes,” Thwaites replies eagerly, the childhood dreams of those brought up on Pirates turned reality. “They include most of the cast at one time, they have a sense of adventure, the supernatural and spectacular about them.”

With Salazar’s Revenge projected to make a cool $1 billion worldwide and Thwaites having scooped CinemaCon’s 2017 Breakthrough Performer award, (the supposed) final chapter of the Pirates of the Caribbean tale is set to end the series on the same exhilarating high it began.

HiLuxury Interview: Drama King

written by Tiffany XX.III

“If it has to do with something that I’ve done; a movie that I’ve made, I don’t mind [all the questions]. But when it starts being about other things [i.e., that silly Taylor Swift rumor], then it gets a little funny…” says actor Brenton Thwaites.

Probing paparazzi aside, the 25-year-old Aussie has been getting blockbuster attention as of late. If you missed him in “The Giver” last year, there’s more to come. Thwaites has been hard at work the last few years, filming several movies back-to-back with the likes of Ewan McGregor, Helen Hunt and Gerard Butler—films which will make their big-screen debuts soon enough. Just to underscore the lightning-fast pace of his career thus far, he was in Honolulu last fall to receive EuroCinema Hawaiʻi’s Rising Star Award. And as of press time, he just snagged a major role in “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales”—the power franchise’s fifth installment.

Thwaites has been dealing with the attention like a seasoned pro: “I enjoy supporting my movies when they come out and helping them along the way,” he says. With a wry smile he adds, “However, I wouldn’t do it on my days off.”
