Los Angeles, Apr 4 (PTI) Actor Tye Sheridan said working on “Ready Player One” was an out-and-out learning experience for him.

The 21-year-old actor, who stars in the lead as Wade Watts in Steven Spielberg’s latest sci-fi film, said the project helped him grow “a lot”.

“I was so excited to go to work and I was so excited to work with our crew and the rest of our cast, and work alongside Steven and ask him questions. Every day was a new challenge, and with challenges, you learn and you grow.

On this movie, I grew a lot, as an actor and as a person, and I grew a lot with my knowledge of filmmaking, in general. This movie gave me so much, and in return, I hope it gives everyone else as much as it did for me,” Sheridan told Collider.

Set in the year 2045, the film explores a time when humanity is depends on virtual reality software OASIS to engage in work and play to escape the desolation of the real-world.

The movie is based on Ernest Cline’s 2011 novel of the same name.
