"Pretty much everyone that's part of the cast is musically talented in some way, so we spent most of our evenings playing music and just talking and just being silly.

The 21-year-old plays high school senior Sam in the movie version of the novel about Charlie, a brilliant but sensitive 15-year-old who pours into letters his feelings about first-time emotions and experiences, perceptive observations about the people around him and, eventually, heartrending memories that surface.
