While promoting her new film Emanuel & the Truth About Fishes, Kaya mentions The Maze Runner.
Your next film is going to be a bit of a chance of pace, it's "The Maze Runner."
I leave in a couple of days to start shooting that in Louisiana. It's my first real studio job, and it's actually something really cool. It's not your romantic love triangle typical trilogy thing, it's very edgy, it's quite scary, action-packed. It's the first one of that sort of films aimed at a male audience, which I think is really cool, I think a lot of young guys are going to relate to it. And it's the director [Wes Ball]'s first feature, he's only ever done a short before, and he's been given this massive trilogy to do, and he's basically going to do whatever the fuck he wants with it. Like he announced that I was in it over Twitter, I just love that. He's just gonna do it his own way.
The film has the potential to be huge. Are you ready for that sort of new level of fame that comes with a studio franchise movie?
I think I've learnt over the last five years that this job is unbelievably unpredictable. So the thing you think is going to be huge ends up not being huge at all, and the most minute thing you do is talked about for the rest of your life, so I try not to have any expectations at all. I think that helps, if you're just focusing on the project at hand. Personally, I'm grateful to be employed, a lot of my friends aren't. The way the country's being run at the moment, it's very difficult for the youth to find employment and to have a career, so right now, I'm just grateful I can go to work, and build a career. So whatever comes of it comes of it, and I'll tackle that when I come to it.
