Lee keen to work with Pi star again

Suraj Sharma and Ang Lee worked together on Life of Pi

Ang Lee has revealed he'd love to work with Life Of Pi newcomer Suraj Sharma again.

The Indian student, who had no previous acting experience, landed the lead role in Lee's new fantasy movie by chance after attending an audition with his actor brother.

When asked if he would collaborate with Suraj again in the future, Lee said: "Of course. If there's a good part, any time. He's such an incredible talent."

Suraj plays a boy who is stranded at sea with a Bengal tiger for company in the film, an adaptation of the acclaimed Yann Martel novel.

"I hope eventually I get to make movies in any way possible, behind the camera or in front," the actor said.

"I just want to tell stories, that's what I want to do. So if I have to go to Hollywood, I don't know where I have to go or what I have to do, I just have to do it!"

:: Life Of Pi is in cinemas on December 20.

Leo:

Trust your intuition about a domestic matter. If you think it's time to get a new place, start looking for one. You could find a home that cultivates tranquillity and relaxation. Escaping the fray will be a relief. Although you enjoy socialising, you also crave private time. Being able to watch movies, read books and listen to music replenishes your batteries. A needy relative could request help. This would be a good time to establish some healthy boundaries. Stop dropping everything for this relative's benefit.More
