  • British-born Asa Butterfield began his acting career when he was eight years old, playing the role of Andrew in the 2006 TV movie After Thomas. He would make a bigger splash the next year, with a role in the indie comedy Son of Rambow, and again the next year, in the Holocaust drama The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas. Butterfield then took on the role of Mordred in the TV series Merlin, before joining the cast of the 2010 family film Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang. While his role in the latter did offer the charismatic youngster a respectable amount of exposure to the tween set, it was Butterfield's next big role -- as the eponomous orphan in Martin Scorsese's Oscar-winning film Hugo -- that truly cemented his reputation as a rising star. On the heels of that resounding success, Butterfield made Hollywood headlines when it was announced that he would next take the lead in Enders Game, a big-budget adaptation of Orson Scott Card's celebrated sci-fi novel.

Station inspector
We'll let the orphanage deal with you
Hugo Cabret
No! I don't belong there!
Station inspector
Where do you belong then? A child has to belong somewhere!
Hugo Cabret
Listen to me! Please, please listen to me! You don't understand! You have to let me go. I don't understand why, why father died, why I'm alone. It is my only chance.. to work (looks at the Inspector's artificial leg). You should understand!
Hugo Cabret
Listen to me! Please, please listen to me! You don't understand! You have to let me go. I don't understand why, why father died, why I'm alone. It is my only chance.. to work. [looks at the Inspector's artificial leg] You should understand!
Georges Méliès
I do. I do. Monsieur, this child belongs to me.
Hugo Cabret
I need to know what this means!
Isabelle
I wonder what my purpose is...
Hugo Cabret
Everything has a purpose, clocks tell you the time, trains takes you to places. I'd imagine the whole world was one big machine. Machines never come with any extra parts, you know. They always come with the exact amount they need. So I figured if the entire world was one big machine... I couldn't be an extra part. I had to be here for some reason. And that means you have to be here for some reason, too.
Bruno
We're not supposed to be friends, you and me. We're meant to be enemies. Did you know that?
Bruno
We're not supposed to be friends, you and me. We're meant to be enemies. Did you know that?

Hugo Cabret

Hugo Cabret
Maybe that's why a broken machine always makes me a little sad, because it isn't able to do what it was meant to do... Maybe it's the same with people. If you lose your purpose... it's like you're broken.
Hugo Cabret
I'm sorry, it's broken.
Georges Méliès
No it's not. It worked perfectly!
Hugo Cabret
I always believed that the world is a machine. All of us were made for a purpose.
Hugo Cabret
With panache
Hugo Cabret
With panache.
Hugo Cabret
"Can we fix it?"
Hugo Cabret
Can we fix it?
Hugo's Father
"Well it would be incredibly hard. Of course we can fix it."
Hugo's Father
Well it would be incredibly hard. Of course we can fix it.
Hugo Cabret
Right after my father died, I would come up here a lot. Iâ??d imagine the whole world was one big machine. Machines never come with any extra parts, you know. They always come with the exact amount they need. So I figured, if the entire world was one big machine, I couldnâ??t be an extra part. I had to be here for some reason. And that means you have to be here for some reason too.

Hugo Cabret
It's like a puzzle. When you put it together, something's going to happen.
Isabelle
We could get into trouble!
Hugo Cabret
That's how you know it's an adventure.
Isabelle
Is it a secret?
Hugo Cabret
Yes.
Isabelle
Oh good! I love secrets!
Pavel
I practiced as a doctor.
Bruno
You must not have been very good then, if you had to practice.
Bruno
There is such thing as a nice Jew, though, isn't there?
Herr Liszt
I think, Bruno, if you ever found a nice Jew, you would be the best explorer in the world.
Bruno
Why do you wear pajamas all day?
Shmuel
The soldiers. They took all our clothes away.
Bruno
My dad's a soldier, but not the sort that takes people's clothes away.
Bruno
He used to be a doctor once, but gave it all up to peel potatoes.
