Taylor Kitsch wants to be ''scared'' by his career choices.

The 'John Carter' actor says it's important for him to take risks with his jobs and take on different characters as he doesn't want to be typecast.

He told Britain's OK! magazine: ''I want to keep working with the best, keep going and be a better actor each time I go and dive into something. I want to be scared. I want to keep taking insane risks.

''I want to be scared because you're going to grow through that whether you want to or not. I don't want to play the same guy. I want to keep throwing curveballs to you guys and keep telling stories.''

As well as concentrating on his career, the former personal trainer says he wants to live a 'normal' life in Austin, Texas, after buying a house there.

He said: ''When I'm not acting, I try to be normal, play golf, play hockey. It's funny because you're in this little bubble when you're working - you don't read books, you don't really keep up with the news, you're just living that life. When you get out, you just kind of reacquaint yourselves with family and friends. You try and forget and just try and remember what reality feels like.''
