Chris Sheffield Shirtless: Girlfriend? Oh my! Famewatchers, check out this hot ginger hunk. His name is Chris Sheffield. He’s an American actor. He’s been acting since 2002. He’s co-starring in the upcoming movie, The Maze Runner which also features Aml Ameen and Ki Hong Lee.
Chris will be playing the role of Ben, a maze runner. Check him out:
The 26 year old actor tells us more about the character he plays in an interview with hypable.com:
In the book, Ben was a Builder, but in the movie Ben became a Runner. Did you get an explanation for why that happened? Do you think it brought anything different to his character?
Yes, I do think that brought a bit of difference in the role and especially the story. In adapting the book to film, Ben is strategically used to truly establish how dangerous, unpredictable and dark things can and will get within this place. In order to accomplish this successfully, Ben became a runner. The runners are the strongest, fastest individuals in the Glade and making Ben one and seeing what happens to him is more powerful. It also helps Thomas enter in the film because he steps up and fills a void that is left after the banishment. Plus, I loved those bits of running and action that I got to do with [Dylan O’Brien]! We had fun.
And here’s how he auditioned for the role:
What was the process like auditioning for Ben?
I was the very last one cast in the film. Wes Ball and the producers were already in Louisiana prepping the film, so I actually never met them before filming. I am so thankful and lucky to have a wonderful relationship with the casting director, Denise Chamian, and had been in for her before. I love her. I went in, got a callback, which was on tape for Wes and the producers, and a few days later I heard that I got the job and was heading to Louisiana! I remember my audition very vividly. It was a hybrid scene of the chase/banishment/changing and I remember imagining Chuck in that moment looking at me being banished and thinking, “You’re going to let this happen too? Please help me!…” and that really affected me.
Had you read the book before you auditioned?
I actually had not read the book before filming and got the appointment for the audition the night before so I couldn’t read it in time for the audition. However, I did my research and went straight out to buy the book and started reading it before I heard I booked the gig. I still can’t believe I was given the opportunity to bring such a distinct character that readers know, and hopefully love, to life. So grateful.
