Chris Egan Flaunts It
Letters To Juliet star Chris Egan also graced the pages of Flaunt Magazine and did the interview from bed. I find this guy incredibly steamy so if he wanted to do an interview from the top of a mountain I would start hiking. Egan got his start in Australian soaps before moving to America and, with his tow-headed surfer boy good looks and Shakespearean-trained thespian chops, landing supporting roles in action films such as Eragon and Resident Evil: Extinction. This lead to a starring turn as Captain David Shepherd in NBC’s short-lived Kings, a modern day take on the Biblical tale David and Goliath.
On filming locations: “That’s the great thing about this job–the fantastic locations,” Egan says, shifting about like an insomniac. “Our main shooting location was the Capulet House, so we learned a lot about the history, and it wasn’t a crazy schedule so we got to have a lot of spare time and check out the city. There’s not really much to complain about.”
On his Letters To Juliet character: “I feel like I’ve played a lot of supporting characters. I just had such a blast with this character. It’s always fun playing the antagonist, the negative prig. I like the gear changes in the movie for my character. He got to blossom in the end.”
