Addicted have posted a fantastic audio interview with Thomas and The Good Lie director Shawn Linden. Listen below and check out the write-up at Addicted.

MrWillWong’s blog features a post about Thomas’s trip to Canada to promote The Good Lie – check it out including a cute snap from the event here.

… Tonight, handsome 25-year-old Dekker (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, My Sister’s Keeper) gave the Audience at Varsity Cinemas a special treat, dropping by to introduce the Film and partake in a Q&A.  Staying for most of the Film, the Actor head-out for the occasional Cigarette Break, kindly stopping for Photos with Fans who didn’t have passes for the Screening.  Looking sharp in a gray suit and teal shirt, his hair perfectly-imperfect, he asked, “You guys aren’t coming to watch the Movie?”, to which he learned that passes weren’t available to the Public.  Nonetheless, he was amazingly gracious as we would come to expect from someone Canadian-raised!

That sure sounds like our Thomas, charming all around!

Finally, there’s another great in-depth interview with Thomas over at Toronto Film Scene, read the full article at their site!

Describe your character in 10 words or less:
I don’t know if it will be 10 words but…He’s a young man whose life is completely turned upside down.

How did you get involved with the film?
Shawn Linden, the director, had seen me in a couple of different projects and he sent the script to my manager. I read it and then Shawn and I talked on the phone for about 2 1/2 hours and I said I wanted to do it! The next thing you know, I was flying off to Montreal. It was a pretty smooth entrance!

What did you like most about your character?
The journey that he has to go on is an actor’s dream. You start with this guy in one place – he’s a wealthy suburban kind of cocky kid and then literally, everything is taken from him. I loved the challenge of trying to figure out his transitions and transformations throughout the script so that it wasn’t a one note performance.

What’s the one thing you’d most like people to know about the film?
That it is really unique and probably unlike anything else they’ve seen. I think that is why the movie is hard to describe easily. It’s horrific, it’s moving, it’s genuine, it’s funny, bizarre. And the narrative structure is unique as it is framed within a bunch of campfire stories.

What’s your best memory from shooting the film?
All the french food! Hmm..other than Montreal!? I loved the process of working with Shawn and Matt (Matt Craven plays his father). Matt and I lived next door to each other while we were shooting and even though we had very few scenes actually together – he is looking for me in the film – it was a great opportunity for us to bond as father and son. And I got an ipad as a wrap gift so that was probably the best part! (laughs).

Who’s your biggest acting inspiration and why?
Good question! That’s a tricky one for me to answer because I tend to gravitate toward female performances. I grew up really influenced by River Pheonix. I loved him. I thought he was a very sensitive and open young actor. So I’d definitely say him – and Sigourney Weaver. They are my favourite actors.

If you could be in your dream project what would it be?
I’d probably say I have dreams of working with certain directors rather than a ‘dream project’. But I’m going to be in every film Shawn ever makes – we discussed this last night. I heard he was going to cast me as the lead in all of them. That’s what he told me and he better not take it back when he’s sober (laughing). I’ve always wanted to work with David Fincher and Michael Haneke. I love most Gus Van Sant projects. I’d really like to work with all of them.

What are you working on next?
I just finished a pilot for CBS called Backstrom with Rainn Wilson where I’m the male version of the The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo which was very fun to play. And I have two films coming up, one shooting in New York called Pretenders with Imogen Poots and one called The White City shooting in Tel Aviv, Israel with my costar from Kaboom (Haley Bennett). We are a couple in this one so it’s a slightly different dynamic!
