“Oddly enough I originally auditioned for the role of Holden. It was a bit of a whirlwind experience that started with a taping, three auditions and a test over the span of a couple of months. It was a couple of weeks after my test I found out I didn’t get the part…It was tough to digest the news, but I was thrilled about the whole experience, nonetheless. It wasn’t until about three weeks later that I got the call saying that they were going to offer me the role of Luke instead! The whole process took about three months, and I was very emotionally invested, so when I got the news it was mind blowing.”

“Tough to say without giving anything away! SO many good moments on set. The pilot in general with Lee Krieger directing was amazing.
