In the near future, crime is patrolled by an oppressive mechanized police force. When one police droid, Chappie, is stolen and given new programming, he becomes the first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself.
Is left-handed, although often seen doing things right-handed (such as shooting, much like actor Keanu Reeves).
He and his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, suffered through two miscarriages, which they point to as the most difficult point in their lives. Both of their children are adopted.
The character I play is actually only 1.6 meters [5` 3]. Before I had any kind of acting profile I was encouraged to lie about my height. I was told to say I was about six foot [1.83m] tall. I was worried about it when I first had my audition because pleasing fans of the franchise is important. My height was brought up on the Internet. They didn`t think it was right. A lot of people who never met me think I`m very short. Jimmy Marsden (Cyclops), who`s only 10cm [4 inches] shorter than me, was put on boxes and platforms in our scenes together. You`ll notice that every character in X-men looks taller than me."
I never read comics as a kid, and when I was slipped the comics under my trailer door, Bryan Singer didn`t want us to read them. He was very frightened that we would come out with these 2D characters, and I was amazed at how helpful they were, the images more than the story. The images, and how they capture emotion or an action sequence in just, say, three images - I have to say I used them as inspiration for some of the fighting stances or techniques. The way Wolverine stands and how he looks. - [on Comic books]
