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: “I’m learning now, more as an actor, that the genre doesn’t only change the way things are written, but also the style that it’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. It’s very much like a pattern. I’ve done stage and one-hour dramas before, Twisted lets me get back to that.”
