Tom Cavanagh is a force. Truly. He’s just always 100% in tune with what he’s doing both from an emotional level and from a technical level. He really liked the script and although he’s been able to play some more sinister characters in the past, I know he was excited to be able to completely transform himself for this from a physical perspective. That’s something you don’t always get to do as an actor. His special effects makeup, which was done by our uber talented artist Kari Anderson and oversaw by dept. head Jenn Kaminski, took 1.5hrs to complete and when he came out, you barely recognized him! Even his teeth were done. He was able to not only be the villain but he was able to embody the metaphor that his character stood for… I’ve said too much.
