Lucas Hedges

  1. Timothée Chalamet, Interstellar, 2013. Hedges lost Tom – astronaut Matthew McConaughey’s son – to his 2017 Lady Bird co-star. He got his revenge by beating Chalamet to Patrick in Manchester By The Sea, 2015. And winning an Oscar nominatioon – 13 years after his father, Peter, was nominated for writing About A Boy, 2001.
  2. Xavier Dolan, Matthias & Maxime, Canada, 2018,   Dolan was the Canadian actor-auteur and he gave Maxime to Hedges – they’d acted together in Boy Erased that year.  No, no, Lucas told him. “You’ll feel awful directing someone else in this rôle – you have to do it yourself.” So he did.
