Sneak Peek of Nat Wolff inside FAULT Magazine Issue 26

Words: Cody Fitzpatrick

In his 23 years, Wolff stars in a film adaptation for Netflix of the manga series Death Note, in which his character comes across a notebook that gives him the power to kill anybody he pleases by simply writing their name in it.

He’ s also in the forthcoming rom-com Home Again and the animated feature Leap! , in addition to a bunch of other stuff that’ s not yet finished. Still, he finds time to be active in his pop-rock duo with his brother, Alex.

We catch up with Natt inside FAULT 26 for an exclusive photoshoot and interview – see the preview below!

 

FAULT: How have you grown or changed since The Fault in Our Stars?

NatThe Fault in Our Stars was super-important because it put me in touch with John Green, who became a good friend of mine. And I also got to work with Shailene Woodley, who Ansel [Elgort] and I both learned a lot from. I became friends with both of them. And then I got to work with one of my buddies, Josh Boone, so it was a big, friendly affair.

But I also think the book was very important because it introduced me to a lot of patients who were battling cancer—and also other diseases—who I think felt recognized by the book and the movie. I actually ended up having personal experience in my family with that, so it was an extremely personal and important experience for me.

 

FAULT: In Death Note, what motivates Light Turner? What does he need in life, and what’s he willing to go through to get it?

NatI think he feels unheard and misunderstood. When he gets this power, first he uses it to kill they guy who killed his mom, and then he uses it to kill the rapist high school bully. Then things start spiraling out of control.

I think Death Note is good wish fulfillment for anybody who’s ever felt like the world was against them. In an immature way, he kind of has to learn to grow up.

 

FAULT: Do you have any upcoming plans for Nat & Alex Wolff?

NatWe put out an EP in December called Public Places. Alex has been jumping around working in a bunch of films, too. So whenever we’re not on set, we’ll play shows in the city or maybe do a little tour—things like that. In August, we have this little thing of time, so hopefully we’ll get back in the studio for a little bit.

 

FAULT: You seem insanely busy. What do you like to do when you’re not working?

NatWhat do I do, or what do I like to do? I spend a lot of time refreshing Google to see what the next disaster is in my country.

But what do I like to do? I have a really good group of friends in New York. I think that’s why I end up gravitating toward New York any time I’m not working. I definitely like being busy. And if I’m not busy, I find ways to stay busy.
