I got called 'pretty boy' my whole life.
I love life and if there's something that I'm playing that I love, I'll research it.
I think a man needs to be a man. To hold a woman the way she wants to be held. Just do whatever your woman wants, and you'll be fine.
I was 19 and folding T-shirts in a surf shop. And I got chosen out of 1,300 people to play a leading role on 'Baywatch Hawaii'. I didn't even know how to act. It took me five years to get an agent after [that]. No one would take me seriously after 'Baywatch'. I lived in the shadow of that for a long time.
Zack Snyder is a huge fan of Game of Thrones and I met him in the training stunt facility that I train at and I guess he really liked me because he later called me into his office and we talked about playing Aquaman. He had a really cool vision for what he wanted to do and how he wanted me to look. It’s kind of Zack’s baby.
I haven't been an actor who's been able to pick and choose roles, and being a family man, it's been about putting food on the table.
You get a lot of respect for Game of Thrones, and it was a lot of fun to play, but it didn't help my career a lot because Khal Drago doesn't even speak English.
