1. You haven't played in so many productions, yet. When and how did you decide to become an actor?

I started acting when I was Nine at a local theatre, but I didn't decide that I wanted to act for a living until I filmed a series of commercials for Cartoon network when I was sixteen.

2. You play Ned Banks in "Ghost Whisperer" are there parallels between you and Ned? How do you get along with Jennifer Love Hewitt, David Conrad, Jay Mohr, Camryn Manheim and Jamie Kennedy?

Yes I think that there are. Ned's a good guy that pretty much just wants what's best for the people around him. I like to think that I'm the same. The cast gets along great, everyone is pretty busy, but we like to get together whenever we have a chance.

3. Do you believe in ghosts or something similar? Do you believe that there are people who have the same or a similar gift like Melinda Gordon in "Ghost Whisperer"?

Yes I do, and I'm not just saying that because I'm on the show. I don't know if I believe in ghosts in a "human form", but I believe in the energy and the power that some people have to feel that energy.

4. Can you already give us some scoop about season four of "Ghost Whisperer"? What will happen in this season?

Well I can't tell you much without spoiling it, but the big story of the fourth season deals with the sign that Melinda got at the end of the third season when six of us are standing at the curb and there are only five shadows.

5. You play a role in the very controversial film "Hounddog" with Dakota Fanning in the leading role. Now the bosses of the AMC cinemas have decided that the film is canceled, although the promotion tour already had been in September. Therefore it isn't shown in about 5000 cinemas. What do you think about this decision, because organizations put oneself out for the broadcasting of this film because it is important?

I would love to have seen the film reach a larger audience, but at the same time I understand that AMC Theatres are running a business and they need to show films that they think will bring in the widest audience.

6. What do you think about the storyline of the film "Hounddog" and what is your part in this film?

Its not the kind of story line that's going to appeal to everyone, but it has a good message of awareness. I played the part of Wooden's Boy, he's the towns milk delivery boy and he's also involved in the attack scene with Dakota's character.

7. What can you tell to us about your upcoming projects?

As for right now more "Ghost Whisperer", The show keeps me pretty busy, but I'm always looking for other projects to do along with "Ghost Whisperer".

8. Which roles would you like to play in the future?

I've always been drawn to off beat and dark comedy, but really I enjoy playing any character that has room to explore.

9. There is not much information about your private life, do you have brothers and sisters?

Yes I do, I have two brothers. Alexander is twenty three, and Konrad is about to turn thirteen. They both live back in NC where I'm from.

10. What do you like to do in your freetime?

I grew up in the mountains of NC, so I've always loved being outside going hiking, camping, mountain biking. As a kid I would spend a few weeks every summer at the ocean with my family, so I love to surf, and now that I live in CA I can surf all year long. That's been my favorite thing to do in my free time lately.

11. Where do you see yourself in ten years?

In ten years I would love to still be acting, but I would also like to be creating my own projects and producing. Hopefully I wont have to wait ten years for that to happen though.

12. Since myFanbase is an online magazine about TV series, do you have a favorite one?

I do, right now my two favorite shows are "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" and "Sons of Anarchy" which are both on the FX network.
