Despite acting since age 4, Chloe Grace Moretz has just done her first YA movie with “The 5th Wave,” based on Rick Yancey’s series about an alien invasion that wipes out most of humanity, leaving the rest to fight back. The 18-year-old actress plays Cassie, a teen who teams up with a mysterious stranger (Alex Roe) while trying to find her brother, who’s been taken by a sinister military outfit.
Cassie is untrained, but you used to save the world in “Kick-Ass” as Hit-Girl. What was it like having to regress back to a novice fighter?
Yeah, it was funny, because Cassie is a very different character compared to Hit-Girl. Cassie is completely untrained. She has no idea how to hold a weapon, how to load a gun, how to fight with her hands. I had to forget all the training and become a typical young woman who doesn't know how to fight or fire a gun.
Who is your favorite superhero, apart from Hit-Girl?
The one with an American flag, but not Captain America...
Yes! I love Wonder Woman! She is so cool!
Would you survive if you got abandoned or lost in the woods?
I like to think that I could survive. But who knows? I don’t know if I could survive for long, especially in the woods. I hope that I would be able to at least put up a good fight.
