Daniel Henshall: 'Any Questions for Ben?' was relief after 'Snowtown'
The Australian actor, who won the 'Best Actor' award at the AACTAs last week for his role as a murderer in Aussie film Snowtown, said that he enjoyed playing "nice guy" Nick for his next acting job.
Henshall told The Age: "[Nick] starts the story thinking his life is not that great and ends it realising it's actually pretty good. [It's] a very 'nice guy' role."
Henshall started shooting Any Questions for Ben? alongside Rachael Taylor and Josh Lawson only two weeks after Snowtown wrapped, saying: "It was a relief to jump straight into another project. It gave me a chance to forget about it.''
He also insisted that the "quarter-life crisis" explored in Any Questions for Ben? definitely does exist, despite the cynicism of some members of the public.
"It's real," Henshall said. "A lot of people aged 25 to 30 have been given so many opportunities and done so much, they've travelled the world, they've got the uni degree, they're four or five years into their career, and they don't know who they are. They seem to have it all, but they just don't know who they are.''
Henshall has previously revealed that he had to "go to an extremely dark place" to play John Bunting in Snowtown, but said that he was compelled to take the role because "something spoke" to him when he read the script.
