His latest project is the new Starz series Da Vinci’s Demons where he plays the role of Nico Machiavelli. He talked to Hollywood Geek Reporter on his role in Da Vinci’s Demons and how he prepared for it,
“I’d like to say I went to the British library and dug out ancient Renaissance tombs, but I just played “Assassin’s Creed 2,” which is set in Florence, on my PlayStation.”
He talks about his audition,
“They were being SUPER secretive about the script so I was given a scene to read for Nico. I thought he was just in the one scene and that was it, so it was only when they offered the part and sent the scripts that I found out who my character was and also how insanely cool the show was.”
And he also reveals the most interesting thing about filming of the show,
“All the explosions! Obviously as a teen, I have a natural instinct to be impressed with [that], so getting to be around huge pyrotechnics was by far the best part.”
