Ansel Elgort, star of director Edgar Wright’s surprise summer hit Baby Driver, loves music so much that he admits that very often the line between music and acting gets blurred – something that his character in Baby Driver, a getaway driver/musician fueled by his carefully curated playlists, certainly understands.
“When I read scripts, I imagine music for them. I am always scoring movies while I read. I love music and I do want to score movies eventually too. A dream of mine is to write, direct, star and score a movie. I know that is very ambitious and that is way in the future, but that is one of my dreams. I do hear music in my head. All the time. I am hearing it now. (laughter) So in terms of the lines being blurred, this movie, Baby Driver was the perfect project for that. Perfect.”
