Take a sneak peek at the Yahoo article.
How was the role described to you when you auditioned?
As a ruthless prince who was sent to town to fix some problems for the royal family. He has been tasked with getting little Diana back to the king. But I don’t think he describes himself as ruthless. That would be weird. I think he thinks of himself as pragmatic and loyal to the family.
Did you know you’d have a fight scene in your introductory episode? Did you train?
I had no idea. Extra training would have been amazing, as I had never done hand-to-hand combat, just occasional stage combat kind of thing and a little swordplay. Luckily, the guys who do the stunts and the effects on the show are incredible. You couldn’t tell that I’m not that tough in real life. And I don’t I usually play the brute force. It was a trip, and fun.
Will we find out how Kenneth became so ruthless? Or can you tease any upcoming scenes you are excited about?
There’s a little more backstory. There are also definitely elements of the final episode I am very excited about.
Intriguing. Will he interact with the heroes other than Renard?
Kenneth will [enlist] a very unexpected ally to get what he needs. He will use whatever opportunities arise to benefit him in his mission. He will take advantage of and manipulate that situation to work in his favor.
