Nolan North thinks he was too old to play Nathan Drake in ‘Uncharted’.
The 51-year-old star voices the treasure hunter in the video game series and makes an appearance in the new film, but thinks Tom Holland was the right person to play Drake on the big screen.
Nolan told Variety, “People think, ‘That should have been you.’ No it shouldn’t I’m 51 years old.
The star shares a brief scene, which was filmed in Barcelona, with Tom during the film and revealed he wanted his presence to be short and sweet.
Nolan recalled, “I think cameos can be tricky. I said to them, ‘I don’t have to be in the movie just to be in the movie.
“I don’t like being taken out of the film. When I watch one, I’m focused. From what we’ve done, it’s just enough of a nod for everyone to say, ‘ Oh, it’s him!’ And then we’re back in the movie.
“I was adamant with them, I didn’t want it to be complacent. It’s a quick little thing, and it works for the scheme of the movie and it’s fun. Like the Stan Lee stuff in the Marvel movies. They’ve always been perfect.”
Nolan also praised Tom and was impressed with how he handled the attention as the pair filmed their scene together.
He said: “I was super impressed with Tom Holland, not only with his talent but with the person he is and watching him interact with the cast and crew. At the beach there was so many extras and people who wanted to see it.
“There were crowds of young girls waiting to see him come off the set, and he waved and they screamed.”
Nolan joked, “I waved and they didn’t yell, but that’s okay. Some of their moms did.”
