Actor Dev Patel rose to stardom in the hit UK television series Skins, before then going on to find global success in the brilliant movie Slumdog Millionaire. Since then, Dev has appeared in plenty of different projects and he has claimed that he is a very hard-working actor, who can also be his own biggest critic.
In a recent interview with Digital Spy, Patel explained, "It's a lot of hard work. Behind closed doors it's a lot of pressure and more than anything you've got to be sure you're not letting yourself down. I've got a crazy work ethic and I'm very tough on myself. It's difficult. It's a difficult position to be in, in a way. You're trying to tread new waters."
Meanwhile, it seems that Dev Patel does have a few regrets over the years, especially coming off the back of the success of the hit movie Slumdog Millionaire. Following that impressive movie, Dev went on to take the lead role in the M Night Shyamalan movie The Last Airbender, which was a huge flop and the actor has admitted he was not ready for the project.
Patel added, "Straight after Slumdog I did a film called The Last Airbender and that was me testing and pushing myself into something very big that I wasn't really ready for and it failed spectacularly and that's what happens when you come from something as big as Slumdog and suddenly all eyes are on you. That film failing wasn't anything to do with me. It was more the direction. But I'm 24 and I feel like I'm doing alright."
He is certainly not wrong there, as Dev Patel has plenty of interesting and exciting projects coming up. As well as continuing in his role as Neal Sampat in the hit television series Newsroom, Dev will also reprise his role as Sonny Kapoor in The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, as we all appearing in the movies The Man Who Knew Infinity, and Lion.
