You are past the point of being a versatile actor, and has taken up different type of roles, including Elf King, Thranduil and also Alien Warlord, Ronan The Accuser, out of the many diverse roles, is there a particular character that you can relate to or one that has been special to you?
Soldier’s Girl will always have a very special place in my heart. I did a lot of research for the character, observations, and reinvented myself so much to fit the role. Here i was 6 feet 4, with prosthetic fitting, and couldn’t help but think what i was doing with my life. I was unsure how i will make it happen until a point where i started seeing so much of me in that character, so it will always be close to my heart.
Joe Macmillan is another role that i feel connected to on a very personal level. I am experiencing new and different things with this character, where Joe has unlocked a lot of personal things about me, things i didn’t even know was there. I think i know him, i feel connected to him, but in the next moment, i barely recognised the character, it’s things that i am unable to explain. But i intend to savour the role, make the most out of it. I don’t want it to end like what happened before but there’s always a possibility of it happening again, so i want to make sure that i enjoy every moment of Halt and Catch Fire - LP
