    Aaron Johnson talks films and fatherhood in Cannes


    by ODN


    He wowed audiences in the movies Nowhere Boy and Kick Ass, but Aaron Johnson is determined to make sure that he is not another flash-in-the-pan rising star.

    "You know I was fortunate enough to have two films on at the same time that were so very different and I guess that makes people aware of you as an actor and you can see a quality I suppose in something. But it's about making some good moves afterwards. You got to keep making a few good ones," said the British actor.

    The 19-year-old unveiled his latest move at the Cannes Film Festival. He stars in Chatroom, which follows a boy who befriends people on the net and pushes them into sinister situations.

    But Johnson's biggest role of his life is looming. He is expecting his first child with fiancee Sam Taylor Wood. But the teen star insists he is not worried about the prospect of fatherhood:

    "I'm excited. I'm not nervous or anything. I'm pretty, I don't know, I'm not scared or anything. I'm pretty fearless," he said.
