I invite all the Being Erica fans to read my fanfiction HERE!
And here is the video recap I made.
I hope you like it.
3xcusemyfrench: Let’s talk about Being Erica and your role as a rock star. How did you prepare the role? Was it easy or not because as you’re a musician, how difficult and how far are you from the character of Kai?
S: Well I think there’s certain parts of the character that I get for free, because I’m a musician. And then there’s other parts that were much harder, for example when I started playing the role of Kai I was 26 and he was 32. Even though he’s in a young man’s body, he’s older. And so that part of the character was very important to me and I had to figure out how, you know. What’s that like? How is that different from me? And so there’s only certain parts of myself I could use and then there where other parts- and also he was a drug addict, he was an opium addict which is of course completely foreign to me, I’m glad to say. So when I first started on the character he was a very different man from when I finished with the character. And in the beginning I had to work on what that struggle was like, and he was much darker and he was in need of help. And in many ways he was younger than me because he was so spoiled because he was a rock star and used to getting everything he wanted and he was in a really bad place. So, I played him as a cross between someone much older than me and someone much younger. You know, but in many ways… he’s me. He’s just some parts of me and not other parts you know?
