Halleta: [to Idris] How has London shaped your identity as an actor?

Idris: Coming from East London, growing up, you know humble beginnings. It just keeps me grounded. I come from not too far in that direction [points over past bridge] and here I am promoting a movie where I was dreaming about it 25 years ago.  

Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) and Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019)

Halleta: [to Jason] The action scenes in this movie are amazing and as a viewer incredibly gratifying to watch. You're just like [sound effects], the choreography is amazing! 

Jason: When they shout action it’s tunnel vision. You’re sort of in there. You work very closely with the stunt guys and there is a lot of adrenaline pumping through the veins. It’s a great, intense way to go to work.

Halleta: [to Jason] This movie is a love story, I think, like a bromance between Hobbs and Shaw. Wouldn’t you say so?

Jason: At times, yeah. Questionable whether we need each other. We sort of accept each other's company. And we do need each other. I will reluctantly admit that I was wrong there. 

Halleta: [to Jason] I wanted to ask how do you and The Rock complete each other? 

Jason: He doesn't have much that I need or want [laughter between Halleta and Jason] so he might have a lot of things that he has a green eye about me. You never know. You will have to ask him. 

Halleta: [to Jason] Okay I will in Hawaii.

Halleta: [to Dwayne] What does Jason have that you need, and what do you have that Jason needs? 

Dwayne: What Jason has that I need is um… Halleta what's that? [snaps fingers] Oh nothing.  [laughter between Halleta and Dwayne] That's what Jason has that I need. Now you asked more important what do I have that Jason needs. Where do we begin! [laughter]

Siva Tau

Halleta: [to Dwayne] I read that you brought your mom on set and surprised her with the Siva Tau dance. I just want you to talk a little about that because I thought it was beautiful. 

Dwayne: I’m happy to. My mom was on set that day and we all started doing it. Myself and my brothers. It’s very intense once you get going and it can be very, quite emotional. And I look over and my mom is sitting off-camera. She is balling beautifully. Before I can even get to my mother, all my brothers were over there making sure she was okay. They were tears of pride. 

Halleta: [to Dwayne] How do you think having a Polynesian heritage has shaped your acting?  

Dwayne: My parents from the very beginning always, always instilled- be proud of who you are. You don’t have to explain it to anybody. [And] my dad and my mom sometimes- if you gotta fight, you gotta fight, for your culture. Just having layers of identity have just helped me in my acting. I think just being grounded in who I am and taking on these roles it’s probably why in all the roles I take there is just so much of me.
