Cera will miss Scott Pilgrim character

Michael Cera felt like he had “ownership” over his character in ‘Scott Pilgrim vs. The World’.

Michael Cera felt like he had “ownership” over his character in ‘Scott Pilgrim vs. The World’.

The actor – who plays the titular character in the fantasy comedy – admits the relationship between the director Edgar Wright and himself was “really amazing” because he knew what he wanted to produce as a final product.

He said: “It was different from anything I had ever done. It was a different actor-director relationship as far as what he was asking of people, because he knew what he wanted and knew exactly what he was making.

“But at the same time I always felt like I had ownership of the character. His choices in shot design and look of the film works really well.”

The 22-year-old star also admits he was not a big comic fan, but had read ‘Scott Pilgrim’ on the recommendation of a friend when he was younger.

He told FirstShowing.net: “I'd never read comics but I had read this one for some reason. A friend of mine was describing it to me one day and it sounded really good so I went and got it. The first two volumes had been out and I loved them. And I'm from Toronto.”
