While other child actors can not wait to move on from the movies that propelled their career and be known for more grown-up roles, Brodie-Sangster does not mind being remembered for his child role.

The actor reportedly remarked that due to the movies' eternal status amongst fans, it is unlikely that he would stop being seen as the cute little boy from "Love Actually," and he does not mind.

Brodie-Sangster also revealed that when he was a child actor, he hated being spoken to harshly while he was on set. The "The Death Cure" star noted that the responsibility of being professional amongst grown-ups helped him grow.

The 30-year-old joined "Love Actually" when he was 13, and the experience affected not just his career but his person. Brodie-Sangster said that he found a way to balance home life and his career despite the fame.

The millions of viewers and love from fans are proof of just how good it turned out to be.

When he got home from a busy workday, Brodie-Sangster revealed that he would go into his room and spend hours playing with his toy and talking to himself, trying to do what normal kids do.

Although he tried to be normal, being famous meant he could not relate to kids his age as smoothly as he would have loved to. The 30-year-old admitted that he found it hard to relate with other kids when he got back from set.
