The 20-year-old Broadway star sat down to answer a few questions from the fans, including how much he actually misses his afro. Check it:
On playing any character from any movie: “The first thing that comes to mind is Alex from Clockwork Orange. When I first saw it, I was very disturbed but I was probably about 14 but still freaked out. I saw it again later and was able to understand it better. From an actor’s standpoint, it’s a very, very interesting character and he goes through so much. That’s always something, as an actor, you want to do.”
On missing his big afro that made him Chad Danforth: “I’ve been getting that question a lot! My character, Usnavi, wears a hat the entire show so a lot of people wonder if it [the hair] is all stuffed in there. I come out of the stage door and they’re like, ‘Wow, it’s all gone!’ But I’m a firm believer in that with every single role, you need to find some way to change yourself. Whether it’s physically or just as a being, I believe that every role you take on you become a different person and in turn, you change as a person.”
On celebrating his 21st birthday in NYC: “My birthday falls on a Sunday this year and there are no crazy plans so far. We actually have two shows on Sundays and after that, maybe I’ll go to a bar to have my first legal drink, but after that, I’ll be ready to go home and go to sleep.”
