He’s a killer, so that’s his demon that he’s trying to work against. He’s this normal guy but when things go wrong and he’s on the fence, he turns into this awful killer.
At any moment he could get back into his beast form and hurt Catherine Chandler that’s why he never wants to get too close to her. But he saved her from being killed when her mother was killed, so there’s that connection.
Prior to landing in Hollywood, the 30-year-old New Zealand-born actor (who’s also one of our Primetime studs) dominated televisions down under by starring in a variety of hit shows, including the popular Australian soap opera fame) and openly admits to us that he’s jealous of her supreme martial arts skills.
He also admits that he used to be a professional clown. I’m a big fan of the original version of the series that starred Linda Hamilton.
This one is very different because in the original, Vincent Keller is that lioness kind of man and in this one it’s more of a chemical build-up within that accelerates with his anger.
I think the beast’s look is even more menacing than the original.
As the weather gets cooler, bold floral prints might not be the obvious choice when it comes to dressing for the season.
Kristin Kreuk: I actually didn’t see the show very much.
I think I was a little too young, and also didn’t have a TV.
I’ve seen bits and pieces of it, though, and I like the themes behind “Beauty and the Beast.” In the Disney version and the fairy tale, the message is really beautiful and human, and I think it’s important for us to tell that story.
There’s that unsaid apology that is going on between them because he didn’t save her mother in time because it was too late. I really like the Comme des Garçons—their scents are great.
He’s got a lot going on inside him and, at the same time, he’s trying to find the cure to become human again, to regain humanity. Everyone always thinks I’m wearing cologne, but it’s actually just a spray-on deodorant from Australia called Nivea. There’s just something about them that smells amazing on a woman.
