Aaron Johnson has admitted that he was nervous taking on the role of John Lennon in his new movie Nowhere Boy.
Nowhere Boy tells the never before seen story of John Lennon's (Johnson) childhood. John Lennon is an ordinary fifteen year old boy on the streets of Liverpool.
In an interview with Digital Spy the actor said: "To begin with when I read the script I just fell in love with it there.
"I related to the character and jumped into it naively not really thinking about it. It was only a couple of weeks before we were going to film in Liverpool that I said to myself, 'Oh f**k, what kind of shoes am I going to jump into'."
“One of the things that scared me the most was not being a musician," he explained. "I wanted to knuckle down and feel confident when I was filming those scenes playing with the band."
This movie sees the nineteen year take on his first major lead role and next year he has Kick- Ass and Chatroom on the horizon.
Nowhere Boy is released 25th December.
