Shiloh Fernandez hated sociology class in college. “There was no debth in it – When I came up with an interesting answer, it was always wrong.
I went to college for a year. I was like, “This is what college is like? Fuck this, I’m out of here. Sociology class fucking ruined it for me,”
he says, shaking his head.

Though university life wasn’t Fernandez’s cuppa, he thoroughly enjoys learning, so long as it’s new tricks of the trade for his film roles. “I never ice skated, but for the movie I did with Haley Bennett [Deep Powder], I went out early and learned how to play ice hockey for the part. I did a film where I was a woodsman [Red Riding Hood], so I learned how to cut down trees the old fashioned way.”

And so it goes that Fernandez has grown up from a though kid in north California into a well-rounded individual – a scruffily handsome actor with a wry smile that gives him a devilish appearance. It was the 27 year-old’s penetrating performance that made 2010’s Skateland a Sundance hit. It’s all led Fernandez to the precipice of major stardom. He’s just returned from New Zealand, where he spent four months filming the Sam Raimi-produced reboot to Raimi’s 1981 classic cabin horror film, The Evil Dead. The slasher, released in April 2013, should introduce him to newbies and cult fans alike, but Fernandez isn’t confining himself to just becoming a star. During downtime in Auckland, Fernandez co-wrote an “art-house thriller” screenplay. “I sent it to [Red Riding Hood director] Catherine [Hardwicke], begging her to pass it to Keisha Castle-Hughes [The Whale Rider], and Keisha read it, and loved it.”

In all likehood, his writing debut should be fantastic, for Fernandez has a knack for great projects. His next one, The East, is the second collaboration between Zal Batmanglij and Brit Marling, who teamed up for the excellent cult film Sound of My Voice last year. “I got to play a bisexual sometime-crossdresser.

The back story is that Alexander Skarsgard and I had been lovers in college,” he says, before adding, “He’s an attractive, tall, strapping man. He’s a nice guy.” Fernandez flashes that wry, devilish smile.

Despite his fringe exterior, Fernandez isn’t immune to mushy moments – when asked to recall a memorable evening, he takes us to Paris, where he spent a recent, long-needed, family Christmas. While there, he took in a film with his teenaged brother, who happens to to be a burgeoning musician. “We got out of the film, and there were these two French musicians playing on the steps of this church. My little brother gets shy, but he’s an amazing musician, and they handed him a guitar. Because I don’t see him a lot, to hear him, almost as an adult, playing music on Christmas night in Paris was incredible.”
The wryness fades and Fernandez shows off what makes him so endearing to audiences, a trait that will get him far in the future: depth. It’s almost to say, he’s mastered a sense of humanity. Maybe all those sociology teachers had him wrong.
