In case you weren’t aware already, your fans absolutely adore you. It’s like they’re an army on Twitter. How does it make you feel whenever you log onto Twitter and see the overwhelming support for your career?

Having constant supporters and people who are always there and always giving back and knowing that they’re loving what you’re doing is always awesome to see. Anytime I’m able to log on and see fans responding to the show, its what I love.

What is the absolute craziest thing a fan has ever done for you?

The craziest thing that has happened to me is on set. We’ve had fans that have blended in and disguised themselves on set to get close to the feeling. It’s been funny and it always makes me wonder…

I’m sure our fans would agree when we say you’re a very good-looking guy. We’re going to ask to toot your own horn a bit – what do you think is your best feature?

My best feature?… My best feature would have to be my hair. That sounds so cliché – but my hair is like a separate entity.
