Listen, New York, so loud all the time.
00:13
Sirens at 4:00 in the morning, just classic, yeah.
00:20
I've been here for three weeks, it's a decent enough time.
00:24
I pretty much feel at home here now.
00:26
Hey, hey, is this is the Uber Pool?
00:29
I mean, I actually came here on holiday when I was 11
00:31
so between that and this last couple of weeks,
00:35
I sort of feel like I am a New Yorker now, it's in my blood.
00:40
(electronic music)
00:42
Woo!
00:46
Coming to a new city can be a little bit scary
00:49
but I'm an actor and I think that part of what makes me
00:56
good at my job is that I read people,
00:59
I observe, I look at human behavior.
01:02
Hey, how you doin'?
01:04
Hey guys, how you doin'?
01:06
Yeah I think there's some things that you can do
01:08
that just make people kind of know that you're from here.
01:11
I'm walking here!
01:13
I can't really remember what it feels like
01:15
to be British, it's so weird.
01:16
As an English person, I would say this is a curtain
01:21
but as an American, if I'm talking to an American,
01:23
I want them, I would say, This is a curtain.
01:28
I would say, English, table,
01:30
but as an American, I would say, table.
01:34
And they all talk in that way, it's so New York,
01:37
but all of their sentences go up at the end.
01:40
So they're talking about going to Soul Cycle?
01:42
That's very New York, I've noticed that particularly.
01:47
I work out, been doing it for a long time.
01:52
I feel like it's a part of my day here in New York.
01:57
Hi I'm here for the six p.m. class, I brought my bike.
02:01
I go to my spot, get my hot dog on the way home,
02:03
little treat, why not.
02:11
It's really good.
02:14
(mumbles)
02:26
Get your ice cream!
02:29
Whoa, yeah.
02:31
Oh you want sprinkles or you want the chocolate sauce?
