The 21-year-old actor chatted with the mag about his new show Twisted, what he’s learned as an actor, and his interest in rap music. Check it:
On being cast in the ABC Family show Twisted: “Getting involved with Twisted was a very creative process all-around. I went in a couple of times and had a lot of conversations with the directors and producers of the pilot. It was quite a long process. They really cared about finding the right guy and wanted to do it right. I had a lot of fun bringing in my own version of Danny and making sure we were all on the same page regarding the character.
On what he’s learned as an actor: “Iâ€™m learning now, more as an actor, that the genre doesnâ€™t only change the way things are written, but also the style that itâ€™s acted in. Victorious, for me, was kind of a leap in another direction. I had to learn a new set of skills. Speaking loudly so everyone could hear you and then nailing a joke. Sitcom jokes are like music. Itâ€™s very much like a pattern. Iâ€™ve done stage and one-hour dramas before, Twisted lets me get back to that.”
