A: Wow. The same way I did since Season 1 began: I don’t! I pretty much shoot from the hip. We don’t get a lot of notice to what’s coming next, so I pretty much operate from that place. Whatever you give me, I’ll go with it. It’s been quite a journey and I really have enjoyed the evolution of this character and the complexity that they allowed me to hopefully honor.
Q: So how challenging has that been for you to not know what’s coming next?
A: It’s challenging, but now it’s become the norm. I don’t want to know too much information. It’s actually kind of nice the way this show in particular is structured. It’s better not to know. It’s better to kind of fumble around and discover things in the moment. I think they realized that on this show and that’s why they designed it in such a way.
Q: Has that process changed you as an actor?
A: I don’t know. Maybe I have been changed as an actor. I don’t prepare anymore. I just go with it. No, it’s been great; amazing.
Q: You grew up in Georgia and went to the University of Georgia. Have you always been a big Bulldogs fan?
A: I went to UGA for a quarter. One quarter of my extended university life. I enjoyed it. UGA was a blast. I crashed all the frat parties, dressing like a frat boy, acting like I was one of them. I had too much fun. So I had a good time for the quarter that I was a Bulldog. Go Bulldogs!
