Aml Ameen talks with PMC Magazine

PMC Magazine talks all things acting, The Butler, The Maze Runner, and more.

Here are the highlights:

On Aml's start in acting:
I grew up in an entertainment family. My father who’s from the Caribbean Island of Saint Vincent was in a band called The Bitches. They were a warm-up act for the Rolling Stones in the Caribbean. I caught the entertainment bug from him, and the movies I watched as a kid with my mum. Home Alone and Thunder Cats began my journey; I’d run around playing those characters and my parents saw the potential in me to be an actor. I then went to Barbara Speake Stage School for 10 years from the age of 6.

On The Maze Runner's franchise potential:
The Maze Runner is an edgy powerful adventure story. It’s only comparison to the successful Hunger Games is that it was once a book for a teen audience. But I think you’ll find it stands on its own as a great piece of cinema. The Maze Runner has an incredible cast of actors helmed by the brilliant Wes Ball, and we bring a real truth to this world. Each character has a story that affects the piece and I’m extremely proud of the film. I play Alby who is a father figure and brother to what essentially are a group of lost boys, The Gladers, and he keeps the order. I believe when people come out to see this film, they’ll come again and again, and this film is gonna draw people of all ages to the cinema.
