You mean all of your success?
Everything!  The blessing that I get to live here in Malibu, at the beach.  That I get to have all these friends and meet all these people.  Just all the stuff that he’s blessing me with – Charlotte’s Web” and “Pirates of the Caribbean.”

“Pirates of the Caribbean” – wow.  The sequel?
Right, the third one.  But I can’t tell anyone about it.

Are you looking forward to filming with Johnny Depp?
Well….I can’t say anything. Because, his character died in the last movie, right?  Yeah, he did.

So what you’re saying is, you can’t tell me whether he’s alive.
Right.  I can’t tell anybody what my part is, either.  But I’m going to start filming in Hawaii in January.

Hmmmm … spoken like a true actor.  Okay.  So was there a certain moment in your life where you became a Christian, or has that always been a part of your life?
My mommy and daddy were always Christians, since before I was born. So since I came out, I was being taught about God.  It hasn’t been that I learned at a certain point.

What sort of advice would you give to other kids who want to go into acting?
It totally matters what they want to do, first of all.  If they’re into it for fun, or a challenge, or just because they like it, I recommend it.  Just let God take you wherever He wants to.  Let him make the decisions and let him take you.

How do you find that out?
You have to pray for it.  You have to let him do whatever he’s gong to do with it.  He’ll do what’s right.  Whatever happens, it will be the right thing.

What if God were to tell you next year that you weren’t supposed to be acting.  How would you respond?
Whatever he chooses will be something better.  If that’s what his will was, I’d find out something better. There would be a reason for that, that there’s something better.

You’re very grounded.  Your parents have taught you well.  They must be pretty amazing people.
They are.

You’re a sweet kid, Dominic.  And if you keep following God, I’m sure you’ll stay that way.  Good job!
Thank you!
