While his co-star, Bollywood bombshell Priyanka Chopra is busy going on talk shows and just killing it on American television, The Flash star Rick Cosnett is busy doing his thing, which is just being his awesome self. The actor talked to Ferrvor recently and revealed a lot about himself.

In the interview, Cosnett talked about how he saw himself, saying he was a sensitive and reserved person.

"I am just really grounded and funny," He joked.  "Seriously though, jokes aside, I suppose I am sensitive and enthusiastic. I have a large capacity for love. Sometimes I am quiet and reserved, but at other times I can be a bit wild and fun. I am a bit strange, but come across as wholesome."

The actor also talked about his new show, Quantico, which recently premiered on ABC. When asked what he would want to preserve on a time capsule, he said:

"My youth, my nieces being so young, me on my new show Quantico, the people in my life, and my black and white flip flops." Aww!!!!

Cosnett also talked about his recurring role as an openly gay FBI analyst on the show.

"He is a very authentic character. With that I mean, he is not cliche. I do feel like he is someone who exists in our world today in all his good and his not so good. I am so excited about him because he is fierce and confident, but also very soft at heart."

The actor also added, "I feel like Elias may be is an alter ego of mine. I have the beginnings of his traits and I get to pretend to actually be all of them. It is really fun."

The actor, who isn't known to be dating anyone currently, also talked about his ideal date saying that he likes spontaneity,.

"The date not going to plan and something spontaneous. Maybe even something embarrassing happening and it turning out better than you ever imagined."

Cosnett also gave a heads up about a new project he's working on. But, he assured that he will be staying on Quantico for a while. When asked what was next for him, the actor replied,   "Finishing a short film I directed and co-writing a screenplay. I will also be on Quantico for a little while."

Aside from acting and apparently writing, the Vampire Diaries actor also likes watching stand-up comedy (and supporting his fellow cast mates)

"I love tennis and watching good stand up comedy. Laughing releases so much stress. Graham Rogers, who I’m working with on Quantico is one of the funniest, smartest people I have met. I cannot actually laugh enough," he said.

He also revealed that his idol of this age is none other than Johnny Depp.

"Johnny Depp. Such an awesome imagination," he said when asked who his inspiration was.

Cosnett is active on social media and can be followed through his Twitter and Instagram accounts.
