In the movie, your character, Rodrigo, is the quiet introvert of the group. Was this character difficult to channel? Would you say you relate to this role in any way?


I wouldn’t say the character of Rodrigo was too difficult to channel. There are differences and similarities to me and him like any other role but the one thing that stood out to me was his reservedness. If you know me at all I am not reserved. I think I say what I’m thinking pretty often and when I do, I express myself with lots of energy. When playing Rodrigo, I definitely had to dial myself back a lot.


The way in which Rodrigo expresses his feelings towards his love interest, Alex, is something I can relate to. He never made the first move when telling her how he felt. And although that goes back to being reserved, that’s usually how I am when it comes to expressing the way I feel about a person. I usually don’t like to be the initiator in those situations. I’m just a little shy boy.


What movie could you watch over and over again?


I honestly don’t think there is a movie that I can watch over and over again. I tend to get pretty fatigued easily and I need time to process it. Once the movie is done, I’m done for a while too.
