Your new movie The Mimic - in a few words, what is it about, and what can you tell us about your character in it?


It's about two lonely people who at first don't find that they have anything in common but ultimately come together. I play the Kid, he's a sociopath but not of the violent variety.


What did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and how much Jake Robinson can we find in the Kid?


I like to start all my characters with myself. I think the Kid has my positivity and spontaneity. I read several books about sociopaths but mainly I watched videos of various people that I thought could be sociopaths. The hardest part being that you typically would have no clue if someone is one or not.


How did you get involved with the project in the first place?


I got asked by casting director Eve Pomerance to do a very early reading of it. I met director Thomas Mazziotti at that reading and our relationship took off from there.


What can you tell us about The Mimic's director Thomas F. Mazziotti [Thomas F. Mazziotti interview - click here], and what was your collaboration like?


Because I came onto the film so early, Thomas was gracious enough to share with me the very first conceptions of almost everything that made it into the film. We had a wonderfully collaborative relationship. I was amazed at how detailed Thomas's vision for the project was.


Do talk about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere!


We shot it in 18 days. I was basically in every scene every day. Thomas Sadoski and I got along really well, which made things easy from the get go. I truly love an indie film set because there is no more team-oriented experience in filmmaking. We all just wanted to make the best possible movie.


Any future projects you'd like to share?


Go watch The Mimic!!!


What got you into acting in the first place, and did you receive any formal training on the subject?


My mom forced me to do Oliver the musical when I was little and I never looked back. I went to Otterbein University and received excellent training there earning a BFA in acting. I have since studied with some incredible teachers in NYC. 


What can you tell us about your film and TV work prior to The Mimic?


I mainly had done lead roles in the TV space including The Carrie Diaries and American Odyssey. But my focus now has shifted a bit to more creative producing, though I still audition frequently.


Having done both feature films and TV series, how do these sets compare, and which do you prefer actually?


I prefer an indie film, particularly one that I have produced, because the sense of ownership and dedication you have toward the project is like no other.


How would you describe yourself as an actor, and some of your techniques to bring your characters to life?


Life in general impacts my work. But I typically start each day with a really grounded warm-up physically and vocally.


Actors (and indeed actresses) who inspire you?

This changes based on what I have watched recently. Right now I have been really loving Josh Brolin. Jennifer Jason Leigh has been on my mind a lot as well, and always Ruth Wilson. 


Your favourite movies?


Hard to pick one, but I finally watched Green Book (I know super late to the party). It was fantastic!


... and of course, films you really deplore?


Deplore is a strong word, but I didn't love the latest Wonder Woman, which is a shame because the first one was so excellent.
