He’s not your typical villain; he’s got loads of different layers. He’s manipulative, very intelligent, quick-witted, and can adapt to any scenario. Even though he’s a bit sick and dark, Ramsay is a very happy guy. He’s definitely a psychopath.
I don’t have a set way of getting into a character. I find it is important to run scenes with another person before performing. I’m really lucky because my fiancé Layla Alizada is also an actress, so we get to coach each other on every part we play. Other than that, I make sure to read the script over and over and over. That’s the biggest part for me. I go into most scenes knowing the other lines almost as well as I know my own. Kind of helps me be able to let it all go and just trust. It’s like a cheat code. A trick that helps me be ok with just being there and listening. That might be the most important aspect of the whole process for me. Doing the work with the goal of allowing myself to let it go and just be present.
I think this is an amazing time for music, and I’m very happy to be alive now. I can’t think of any other time I’d rather be alive, other than maybe caveman days ‘cause I’d just be curious to see how people are acting.
