The 19-year-old Fosters star opened up to the glossy about about his career, his heritage, and his upcoming film Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry Finn. Check it:
On playing the iconic Huck: “Between Huck and myself, I think the similarities would be that we are both adventurous and creative risk takers. Huck Finn is always looking for and exploring new places.”
On his favorite Puerto Rican food: “Bacalao! It’s a fried fish stew (usually salted cod fish) and it’s one of my favorite traditional Puerto Rican dishes because of the freshness of the fish you can get while on the island.”
On other characters he’d like to play: “I’d love to play a character that has a lot of truth, whether it’s based on a novel or portraying a historic character, anything to challenge me as an actor.”
