But no I don't, you know, there's no part of him. I guess maybe what some viewers experience too, sometimes I just want him to pull the trigger. Not literally, but it's like, man do something, tell her, do it, kiss her, step forward, you know, punch him, whatever. I mean he's still sort of fighting them in self-imposed handcuffs.
If you could give Nathan one piece of advice, what would it be?
If I could give Nathan a piece of advice? Stop worrying so much and just go for it, man. And I guess that's what happened a little bit at the end of 11, right? When he has that realization and he's at the meeting, and he says to Vincent Dwight that sometimes taking risks pays off. So hopefully he learns that lesson, and that's not just a moment of fleeting feeling for him. Because I think if we get to see him taking a lot more risks, that would be first of all dramatically exciting and then a lot of fun for me to play. But also great for him as a character.
When you're doing the show and your ad libbing, do you ad lib much, or is it just off the top libbing the script?
I wouldn't say much, but yes we do. And definitely more this year than last year which plays into I think just because that much more comparable. And also the writers gave us more freedom this year. They said if we do a version where we get the dialogue as written, stick to the script, then they, which is very kind of them, I think they've trusted us to play around with it a little bit as well.
If we find things in the moment that we think are funny or might be interesting, then go for it. And I've been really happy to see that, in the end they've been keeping a lot of that stuff.
What have you learned about yourself from this experience so far of being part of the cast of Haven?
Myself, well I'm just kind of like a block of wood. I don't learn very much. No, it's been interesting. I guess going into this I thought, well first of all it's fantastic to be - just honored to be a part of the show, and able to do now two full seasons and hopefully many more of this show as an actor. Just being in front of the camera and getting to play with your friends in a comfortable, creative environment is so rewarding. And you learn so much about your artists in that way.
