I wouldnt say that Im very similar to the character of Nathan at all. Both of us have had very different upbringings and backgrounds. I have a competitive nature like the character of Nathan. Thats really easy to draw from when Im acting; thats probably the biggest similarity.

I do genuinely believe that young people who play sport at a competitive level, sensibly controlled, sensibly organised, that has to be a good thing. It will teach them to win, it will teach them to lose with dignity and magnanimity - all the things you want. Its a pretty good metaphor for life.

Many high school students are under so much competitive pressure. They are sometimes taught that if they dont have a 4.0 GPA, score in the 99th percentile on admissions tests, and demonstrate leadership in sports and participate in clubs, they wont get into college anywhere. Even highly credentialed professionals get caught up in this.
