Dylan Postl, better known as ‘Hornswoggle’ in the World Wrestling Federation, stars in the new movie Leprechaun: Origins. Postl is learning about the differences between life in the ring and in front of the camera. “It’s a lot less on your body that’s for sure,” he told uInterview at San Diego Comic-Con 2014. “You’re not taking body slams every night, everyday, every night of the week and all year around. “It’s a lot of fun. Both of them are so much fun.”

The Leprechaun films have been a staple in the horror movie industry since the original was released in 1993. But this film is a bit different from its predecessors. “Man, it’s just a very jump-scare movie,” said Postl. “There’s no ‘hokieness’ and ‘gaga’ and limericks like the originals. It’s just straight horror film.”


Q: What's the difference between the WWE and acting? - Uinterview

There's so much difference between WWE and acting. It's a lot less on your body that's for sure. You're not taking body slams every night, everyday, every night of the week and all year around. It's a lot of fun. Both of them are so much fun. I'm living my dream in WWE and this was a good change. It's a nice fun change.

Q: What's the makeup process like to become the Leprechaun? - Uinterview

Two-and-a-half hours, twice a day, but it was fully worth it. Seeing the final product for the first time last night, and it was fully worth it.

Q: What's different about this reboot of 'Leprechaun'? - Uinterview

Man, it's just a very jump-scare movie. There's no 'hokieness' and 'gaga' and limericks like the originals. It's just straight horror film.

Q: What was the most challenging scene? - Uinterview

You know what, challenging means that you didn't enjoy them, and I enjoyed every one of them. I enjoyed shooting every one of the scenes because they were so much fun to do. There's a scene in a truck, and that's all I can say. And it was so much fun to do.

Q: Do you feel stress when you step into the wrestling ring? - Uinterview

I don't get stressed, man. I get nervous. If you don't get nervous that means you're too comfortable and you can't do your job the way you should. But I love it. It's not work, work isn't fun. This is fun. It's living my dream.

Q: Do you ever worried about getting injured? - Uinterview

No, we're all family, we got to take care of each other. Can't worry about that too much. It's gonna happen. Well I'm lucky, I've been lucky enough. I'm healthy.
