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 says: We'll let the orphanage deal with you

Hugo Cabret says: No! I don't belong there!

Station inspector says: Where do you belong then? A child has to belong somewhere!

Hugo Cabret says: 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 says: 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 says: I do. I do. Monsieur, this child belongs to me.

Hugo Cabret says: I need to know what this means!

Isabelle says: I wonder what my purpose is...

Hugo Cabret says: 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 says: We're not supposed to be friends, you and me. We're meant to be enemies. Did you know that?

Hugo Cabret says: 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...

Hugo Cabret says: 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 says: I'm sorry, it's broken.

Georges Méliès says: No it's not. It worked perfectly!

Hugo Cabret says: I always believed that the world is a machine. All of us were made for a purpose.

Hugo Cabret says: With panache

Hugo Cabret says: With panache.

Hugo Cabret says: "Can we fix it?"

Hugo Cabret says: Can we fix it?

Hugo's Father says: "Well it would be incredibly hard. Of course we can fix it."

Hugo's Father says: Well it would be incredibly hard. Of course we can fix it.

Hugo Cabret says: 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.

Georges Méliès says: Happy endings only happen in the movies

Georges Méliès says: Happy endings only happen in the movies.

Hugo Cabret says: Stories not over yet

Hugo Cabret says: The story's not over yet.

Hugo Cabret says: It's like a puzzle. When you put it together, something's going to happen.

Isabelle says: We could get into trouble!

Hugo Cabret says: That's how you know it's an adventure.

Isabelle says: Is it a secret?

Hugo Cabret says: Yes.

Isabelle says: Oh good! I love secrets!

Pavel says: I practiced as a doctor.

Bruno says: You must not have been very good then, if you had to practice.

Bruno says: There is such thing as a nice Jew, though, isn't there?

Herr Liszt says: I think, Bruno, if you ever found a nice Jew, you would be the best explorer in the world.

Bruno says: Why do you wear pajamas all day?

Shmuel says: The soldiers. They took all our clothes away.

Bruno says: My dad's a soldier, but not the sort that takes people's clothes away.

Bruno says: He used to be a doctor once, but gave it all up to peel potatoes.
