Michael: I think it's nice for young people to get a taste of what death is like. I didn't have anyone close to me pass away until four or five years ago, which is a long time. I always thought I was very blessed to have that. And then when it did, it gave me some depth - not only as a human being, but as an actor.
(On what he'd like to do in the future)
Michael: I'm always up for different things. I can sit here and tell you "Well, I never want to do a horror movie", but you could see me in a few years in a horror movie. I'm always up for something new and something challenging. I don't know. I feel really open to kind of anything. I guess that's a part of being an actor. You never know what's going to come up next. You never know what you're going to be playing.
Michael: Just graduated from high school three weeks ago. It was so hard to keep up with everyone because of work. I've enrolled at California State University Northridge, but my goal is to go to USC film school.
