Kodi Smit-McPhee may not be very well-known on this side of the Atlantic, but the 14-year-old actor is actually part of an acting family -- his father Andy McPhee and sister Sianoa Smit-McPhee are both recognized as thespians in their native Australia (and here too). One thing's for certain, though: Kodi Smit-McPhee certainly has a knack for picking great films. Critics lauded his performance in last year's 'The Road' (where he starred alongside Viggo Mortensen), and now the kudos are rolling in for his role in the vampire-movie-remake 'Let Me In.'

Moviefone caught up with Smit-McPhee at the Toronto Film Festival, and he filled us in on how his friends plan to get into an R-rated movie, the joys of adolescence and whether he's Team Jacob or Edward.
