"Yea, it was kind of stressful. Whatever your character has going on, it goes on for the whole season because it’s one day. When my mom died on the show, I had to be sad and depressed the entire season. It kind of takes a toll on you and along with the action stuff. It’s not an easy show to shoot, but still a great experience for me as an actor."
