“Foundation” star Lee Pace covers the latest issue of L’Officiel Fashion Book Australia magazine photographed by Mike Ruiz and styled by Chloe Harstein.
Were you a fan of Isaac Asimov before signing up for the show and who are your favourite sci-fi writers? “I was a fan of sci-fi and the Isaac Asimov tradition of sci-fi, but I say that to say that I was extremely familiar with Dune and Hyperion. Ursula Le Guin is one of my absolute favorite writers. I would say in the top three of any writer of any kind of genre. I read the first book in the Foundation series about a year before I heard that they were making it into a series and I thought, like everyone else, ‘There’s no way they can do this.’ I was very much like, ‘There are no characters that you can fall in love with. There are certain things that it’s just better to read and imagine.'”
If you had a chance to give your younger self advice, what it would be? “I would probably tell myself to get comfortable because I have a lot on my mind. [laughs] I would have a lot to say, but I’m going give you a concise answer. I would say that there’s nothing better than being relaxed. That it’s not just a luxury to be relaxed and to make being a relaxed person a priority in your life, it’s key. I think about times in my life when I was worried about one thing or another or trying to control one thing or another that was not really inside my control.”
