Rising Aussie actor Xavier Samuel finds Hollywood was the Pitts working on the movie Fury

XAVIER Samuel found working with Brad Pitt a down and dirty business.

The up and coming Australian actor appears alongside the Hollyood star in the World War II flick, Fury, due out in November.

And the movie shoot just outside of London required lots of rolling around in the very realistic trenches.

“There was so much mud you could barely move,” Samuel said, adding that his character, Lt Parker, was “fresh out of army training like a green recruit who is thrust into a position of power and no one is listening to him”.

But Samuel did his best to hold his own in the position of authority.

“I just, you know, try and bark a few orders and hope that people will listen,” he said.

Working with Pitt was a career highlight for the 30-year-old Aussie.

“Brad is a great actor. He is just a down-to-earth guy. He was someone I grew up watching in films and someone I really admired, so to have a chance to work with the guy is not something you would pass up,” he said.

As for autographs and happy snaps, Samuel said he refrained from any “fan moments”.

“I managed to restrain myself,” he laughed. “It is very uncool. You’ve got to keep your cool, you can’t do pics and autographs.”

Fury, directed by David Ayer, is set in 1945 and tells the story of a group of soldiers operating a Sherman tank in Europe.

Next up, Samuel will be heading home to play poet Banjo Patterson in a project due to start filming early next year.

“I’m looking forward to getting back and seeing the family and hanging out,” Samuel said.

Great News!

XAVIER Samuel has won the coveted role of Banjo Paterson in the upcoming film about the famous poet’s life.
Samuel, who starred in a string of Aussie flicks before leaping to fame in the Twilight franchise, will join principal photography in Winton when the film goes into production next year.

He has most recently finished filming the World War II film Fury opposite Brad Pitt and Shia LaBeouf which is set for release later this year.

The Banjo Paterson film, Banjo and Matilda, has gone through various stages of development but producers have settled on making the film about the period in Australia’s history, when Paterson was in Winton and wrote Waltzing Matilda.

It will feature the shearer’s strikes of the time that influenced Paterson to write the iconic Australian song.

Waltzing Matilda is one of Australia’s most iconic ballads, adopted as an unofficial anthem by some and sung regularly at Rugby Union internationals featuring the Wallabies.

Producer Bill Leimbach, who produced Beneath Hill 60, will now begin the process of raising the film’s $14 million budget.
