Will Poulter's BAFTA family affair
February 13th, 2014 10:20am EST
Will Poulter is taking his mother as his date to the BAFTAs.
The 'We're the Millers' actor - who is nominated for the prestigious EE Rising Star Award - will share his special moment at the British Academy Film Awards on Sunday (02.16.14) with his parents and insisted his mum Caroline join him on the red carpet.
Speaking to BANG Showbiz at EE and Esquire magazine's pre-BAFTA bash at London's The Savoy hotel last night (02.12.14), Will said: "My mum is sat next to me. I told my mum she has to be included. I was like, 'You're coming, no two ways about it.' So my mum's coming, and my dad's going to be sat at the back, but they're both going to be there."
The 21-year-old star admits he is "terrified" about his nomination and hasn't even thought about writing an acceptance speech in case he jinxes his chances of winning.
He enthused: "I'm excited about Sunday, looking forward to it very much. I'm excited, obviously, to be nominated for such a prestigious award but I'm terrified as well.
"I have yet to write a speech. I'm worried that will jinx it."
The affable British actor - who is up for the Rising Star Award with Dane DeHaan, Lupita Nyong'o, George MacKay and Lea Seydoux - also revealed he is backing his close pal George, 21, for the win if he doesn't get the prize himself.
He said: "That's so tough! I'm a genuine fan of all of them. George is a very good friend, so it's difficult to choose. Because George is my mate, I have to say George! And he's totally deserving."
