Ezra Miller On Playing Gay Teen Patrick In “The Perks Of Being A Wallflower”

I was 14 and just entering high school [when I discovered The Perks of Being a Wallflower], so I related to Charlie. It was sort of a funny thing to become aware when I read the script, that, through the process of growing a bit older, those four years had put me in much more of a ‘Patrick’ position. For me, the goal was always Patrick. There was never a thought of another character…

[Developing the character] was the easiest process ever for me, because my imagination had been working on Patrick for four years. To me, Patrick is like a person; we all get to know one or two of the people who, very effortlessly, demonstrate how to maintain your dignity and how to keep yourself afloat despite all of the sinking weights that can potentially fall on you.”

—Queer-identified actor Ezra Miller, discussing his role as the openly gay Patrick in the upcoming film adaptation of The Perks of Being a Wallflower, to Indiewire.
