Ethan Peck: 'Gregory Peck Was Just Grandpa'

Ethan Peck: 'Gregory Peck Was Just Grandpa'

Ethan Peck squeezes his 10 Things I Hate About You costars Meaghan Martin and Lindsay Shaw in the photo booth at the 2009 Disney/ABC Television Group summer press junket last week.

The 23-year-old leading man recently caught up with Teen Vogue and dished on his upcoming series, working at Diesel and his legendary grandfather, Gregory Peck. Check it:

On being a master clothes folder: “I still don’t know much about fashion [since I worked at Diesel]. But I am an excellent folder.”

On taking on the role of Patrick Verona, originated by Heath Ledger: “I’m approaching the part with respect for what’s already been done with it. Though ultimately, we’re creating something new.”

On seeing his grandfather, Gregory Peck, in a different light: “It’s wild—he’s such an icon, but to me, he was just grandpa. I only knew him in his house, in his cashmere sweaters, in the backyard, or in the pool. I wish I could have known him better—I’d have so many questions for him now, but in a lot of ways, I guess he’s with me.”

10 Things I Hate About You premieres Tuesday, July 7 @ 8PM ET/PT on ABC Family.
