K-Stew: 'I Had No Screen Test With Nicholas Hoult'
Star reveals the pair have been cast in Equals together on director's hunch...
It was announced this week that the former Twilight star and the X-Men actor would be playing the female and male leads in Equals - a new version of George Orwell's 1984.
And K-Stew has told E! News that director Drake Doremus cast the pair on instinct.
She said: "Drake works in a really cool way, he had a pair in mind and if one of us wasn't able to do it, we'd both be out. That group works. And if it didn't, he would've chosen two other people.
"I'm so excited. I mean, Drake Doremus is one of my favourite directors right now. I would do anything with him. This is the first movie that he's working off a script, usually he works off an outline. And I love that style.
"I love being able to find something naturally and have it live and really breath. So I can't wait to be thrown into his world."
