“Beneath the wanton, CG-aided destruction caused by invading alien hordes in this week’s sci-fi actioner Battle: Los Angeles there lies a deeply human core: the bond among soldiers under siege, banding together in the face of certain extinction. And as the naive Pfc. Shaun Lenihan, 26-year-old Canadian actor Noel Fisher is the face of Battle: LA’s humanity — a too-young Marine thrown into the harrowing chaos of war, separated from his unit, with only his rifle to cling to as terror sets in.
Movieline caught up with Fisher (who has a recurring role on Showtime’s Shameless) to discuss Battle: Los Angeles, his one-time brush with Charlie Sheen, and other highlights of his fast-developing career as he was literally making his way back home to Vancouver for his biggest job to date — playing the ancient Romanian vampire Vladimir in Bill Condon’s The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn. How much can you discuss during a car ride to the airport?”
