THE HOST video interview with Max Irons, Jake Abel and Chandler Canterbury


THE HOST opens this weekend, based on the popular book by TWILIGHT author Stephenie Meyer. It’s safe to wonder if the new film could create another TWILIGHT-like phenomenon, though unlike that book series, Meyer has (to date) only written one installment. It’s been adapted and directed by the visionary Andrew Niccol (GATTICA, IN TIME) and features Saoirse Ronan, Max Irons, Jake Abel, Chandler Canterbury, William Hurt, Frances Fisher and others in the cast. As part of a promotional book signing tour Max Irons, Jake Abel and Chandler Canterbury stopped in Dallas and made time to discuss their roles with local press. What you see below is video of that press junket, kicking off with a question from yours truly, and followed by questions from other press in attendance. My thanks to Rachel Parker for shooting and editing this. THE HOST is now playing everywhere.
