ABOU-SABE: So between Ian, Asher, and Adam, whom could you personally relate most to?
MONAGHAN: I mean, that’s always difficult because with every character you play you’re always trying to put facets of yourself into those characters. I think Asher, at the beginning of The Giver, when he’s goofy and a little bit of a rule-breaker, a little bit of a jokester, I align with him. But then he kind of transforms throughout the movie and becomes someone I don’t necessarily relate to. I relate to Adam McCormick’s sensitivity. He’s more quiet and introverted, and I definitely have those moments as well.
