What do you do for a living?
I’m an actor.
What do you wear to work (before getting into wardrobe)?
Usually black boots and worn-down denim jeans with a t-shirt.
What is your shoe size and at what age did you get to that size?
I’m a 12 US. I think I reached that size when I was about 16.
How do your clothes define your role?
I grew up a city boy and so I’m drawn to urban looks that include darker, more industrial tones. I’m from a working-class family that supports a hard-work ethic; you put in what you want out. I find clothes that help me feel grounded and efficient appealing, which is probably my military-style boots more than anything.
Do you have any superstitions, if so what?
I’ll always say bless you if someone sneezes, even if they might not hear it. I like the idea that we are all being looked out for one way or another.
Tell us about your father in 3 words
Generous, fun-loving, inspiring.
What are you working on next?
Currently I’m completing filming on American Gothic and after that I’m hoping to work a little on a solo project I’ve had in the background the last few months.
