"I liked a girl on the set, Alana Brady, and I followed her to a drama group. From that I got a tiny bit more work and realised I could make a career out of drama," McAvoy said. "It's nice that he remembered. We did both like each other but we were just teenagers. It was a long time ago," Brady said.
