Some brand new headshots have been uploaded to Chandler's IMDb page. I can't believe how much he has grown... I could swear it was yesterday when I first saw him as little David in "Criminal Minds"!

Mar 30 2013 Interview With Chandler

I recently had the opportunity to interview Chandler Canterbury, who you will be seeing starting today in the newest movie based on a book by the best selling "Twilight" saga author, Stephanie Meyer, "The Host." Chandler is a Houston, TX native, and plays Jaime Stryder, the brother of Melanie (Saoirse Ronan) who has been taken over as a parasitic host for an alien "soul."

National Teen Celebrity Examiner: Thanks so much for taking the time to talk to me Chandler. I know with the movie being released tomorrow, it has to have been a really busy couple of weeks. Since we are both hometown Houtonians, what are some of your favorite places to hang out during your down time?

Chandler Canterbury: Edwards theater to watch movies, the Galleria and there's a park nearby where my friends and I like to go to play football.

National Teen Celebrity Examiner: Edwards is one of my favorites too, not to mention the shopping in the Galleria. What else do you like to do in your downtime?

Chandler Canterbury: Of course there is school and sports, but I also like X-Box 360. Black Ops3 is one of my favorites. I also like to play the guitar and piano.

National Teen Celebrity Examiner: I know that one, and I know more than one teen that has a hard time getting off the X-box too, including my own. Let's talk just a little bit about "The Host." I spoke to some teens that saw it and they loved the way the story evolved and the way the effects were like special effects on the screen, especially the wounds healing.

Chandler Canterbury: Thanks so much!
