What do you like most about your role? Steve Kot doesn’t take any B.S.
Do you have something in common with your role? Kot is very left-brained, and I am, too. I think we both make decisions based on logic more than emotion.
A sentence we’ll soon hear from your role? „I didn’t mean it like that.“
Most funny person on the set? Jason’s always cracking jokes, and our tech advisor Brian Luce is pretty funny, too.
Most embarrassing situation on set? My first day of shooting season 2, there was a line that I just couldn’t get out of my mouth. I made Jason climb the stairs in the lobby like 15 times. Pretty embarrassing for me, but a good workout for him. How long are you shooting normally on one day?
How long are you shooting normally on one day? I’m pretty lucky in that I’m usually in and out in a couple of hours. There have been 12 hour days, though, and sometimes they’re even longer.
How do you learn your text? I memorize by brute force. I just read it over and over again.
What was the craziest/funniest fan reaction? I was recently the only passenger on a rental car shuttle bus, heading to pick up a car. The driver started chatting with me and after a bit she looked at me with this funny look and said: „You look like this actor, he’s a lawyer on my favorite show, Chicago PD.“ She literally screamed when I told her that I was the guy. I thought she might crash the bus!
