The 27-year-old actor revealed what it was like filming his death scene and the speech Phoebe Tonkin‘s character Hayley gave his lifeless body.
“That entire day was really intense, and Phoebe did an incredible job of staying with it, staying in it — and hearing her talk and I could tell she was — I couldn’t see her, but I could tell she was crying,” Nathan told Access Hollywood. “[The speech] was beautiful to listen to and every now and then I would sneak a little glance over if I didn’t think they were looking at me, just because I mean, she’s incredible. I think she killed it in that scene.”
Phoebe told ET, “It was really sad! I love Nathan Parsons so much and I love the relationship with Hayley and Jackson. It was just so sweet and very human. They gave him an epic death, which is all you could want if you’re going to die on a show like this. An epic, epic, dark, bloody death, so I’m glad he got that, but yeah it’s sad. It’s sad when any kind of character leaves on these shows. We spend so much time together so it’s like we’re losing a buddy.”
