GQ: What’s been the most memorable project you’ve worked on? 
AG: Playing [the character of] Chook in Killing Ground made a big splash. I’ve had people in Australia and LA say, “you’ve ruined camping for me! I can never go to the Outback again!”

GQ: Yikes! What does an average day in Hollywood look like for you? 
AG: Wake up. Work out. Smash a shake. Drill my accents. Read about something I know nothing about. Eat lunch. Write my script. Chat with my agent. Shoot some hoops. Meditate. Sleep. And then every three months get out of LA and remind myself how the rest of the world lives!

GQ: What changes have you seen occur in the film industry since you started acting?
AG: I’ve noticed big changes in the last 12 months – I’ve worked with two brilliant female directors and acted alongside an African American/Jewish leading man. One group who, I feel, are still missing out are people with physical and intellectual disabilities. I’m determined to find a way to bring their voices forward.
