Question: Considering you were a member of Black Knights Stunts, how much action will we see from your character?
Blair Redford: I remember having lunch with our executive producer, Chuck Pratt, when we got the pick-up for the series, and I told him right away if there’s any room for stunts or action we’ve got to write it in. And he sat back in his chair and looked at me and he’s like, “Dude, you’re going to get in a fight like in every other episode in this show.” He has some anger issues, when he gets revved up it’s hard to calm him down. In protecting the twins and things like that, there are definitely some fists thrown here and there.
Question: Obviously you and Alexandra Chando (who plays Emma and Sutton) film a lot of scenes together. How does it compare for you when you move from a one-on-one scene with her to something that involves a bit more of the cast?
Blair Redford: I would say that 90% of my work is with her so far. Well, because we’re shooting a lot we’ve become really close, and we’ve got all our inside jokes down on set and all of that, so it’s like working with a best friend. I’ve always joked with her, I’ll be like, finally, I’m doing a scene with another actor besides Alex. I’ll make sure she overhears it in the makeup room or whatever.
Question: Are you like Ethan in real life?
Blair Redford: It’s kind of a difficult question to answer because I kind of try to merge myself and put myself in the character’s shoes as much as I can, so we’re already going to have some similarities. Ethan has a really strong sense to protect his friends, protect those that he’s close to and his loved ones. I’m really quick to stand up for people that are in my circle. I think that’s a big part of Ethan’s makeup.
