Tell us about your character.
Aster is the King of Swag. He is super into fashion and is in charger of the design of the toys. He likes people who look good and he likes to look good. He is fastidious and quick witted. He can be be quick to dish out some pretty funny liners. At times a bit sarcastic, but underneath his exterior he is a pretty nice guy, but don’t tell anyone.

What inspires your ambition?
I am inspired by life. My family, friends, and fans continue to inspire me daily. Movies and music of course too.

Favourite current hiphop artist?
Good question! Hard to say just one. Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, and ASAP Rocky.

Your character gets to dress in some very creative outfits on “Some Assembly Required”, are you interested in fashion? Do you have any favorite designers or celebrity whose fashion you admire?
I really had to do my research on this character. I have never been really passionate about fashion. I related it to music though. If I hear something bad, its like nails on a chalkboard. I have to ask to change or leave the room. Aster is very much like that. If he doesn’t like your outfit he will let you know.

Since playing this role I have actually ganied a stronger love for fashion. He has influenced me to want to dress better. One celebrity comes to mind would be Justin Timberlake.

What is the most fun about being part of an ensemble cast?
I just love the positive energy. Everyone is unique and so talented. It is infectious.

Do you and your character Aster have anything in common?
Aster and I are both very blunt at times. We Make good first impression. We like looking good and people who look good. We have a sense of humor and have swag. We also are good at advice and a little wiser then we look.

Top 5 albums of all time?
Well way to many good albums I love! What comes to mind though is:

Eminem – Marshal Matters LP
Red Hot Chilli Peppers – Californiacation
2pac – All Eyes On Me
The Beatles – The White Album
Radiohead – OK Computer

What do you enjoy most about acting?
I love performing it is so fun just being a character and living as if something is new every time.

Who would you most like to have the experience of acting with in the future?
Jim Carrey would be awesome.
