What do you enjoy most about playing Dr.TC Callahan?
TC is wild. He’s unlike anybody that I’ve gotten to explore before, and despite his strong leadership abilities he struggles to cope on a daily basis with the internal strife that he has. He’s always on the edge and that keeps him constantly fresh.
What’s the energy on set like?
It’s fun. Working long hours on a TV show means that you hope to enjoy the people you work with, but we all get on great. We just hang out and there’s a great vibe with the crew and cast. It’s long hours but when you’re working with talented people that you genuinely like it’s easy.
Recently, we’ve seen you on National Greographic’s “Killing Jesus”. How different was it to work on this TV film?
Killing Jesus was the polar opposite to Night Shift from an acting stand point. Antipas was a dark character that required going to a different place and the history an religious elements of that show alone gave it a different feeling. I enjoyed having to travel to a darker place in my mind though and to try and empathize with a character who on the outside was hard to love.
Throughout your career you’ve been involved in short films and indies. What kind of experiences do these projects give you as an actor and film maker?
I’ve been involved in many different projects, from shorts to indie freatures and docuentaries, in front and behind the camera, and it’s all about expirience and learning your craft. Every project has helped me work on my skill set – to understanding ore about story and character and how they play into each, to not being too focused on the journey of my own character but being aware of how it all fits together. In indie film making there is a little more freedom to experiment with techniques and that’s important to develop and have trust in your decisions.
What type of roles would you like to play next?
It’s not about playing a specific role, it’s about finding a story and character that you want to play, and with people that you want to work with. If i’m lucky enough to. I’m just always thrilled and privileged to be working at all and to be able to do this as a career. (Source)
