INTERVIEW: Drew Nelson of FX’s ‘The Strain’

| Posted by | No Comments

unnamedFor those of you looking forward to Guillermo del Toro’s show The Strain, you are in for a real treat. Recently I had the pleasure of interviewing actor, writer, and director Drew Nelson who plays Matt Sayles in the upcoming horror thriller. On top of telling us about The Strain and his character Matt, Drew also talks about what inspired him to become an actor, his dream role, and even tells us which superpower he’d pick and his favorite comic book movie!

Drew was a lot of fun to chat with, so make sure to check out this interview to learn more about this up and coming talent!

What inspired you to become an actor?

I guess my parents always kind of had an inkling that I was more of an artist type. They’d always get me to do voices for my aunts and uncles at family gatherings and stuff like that. Further into high school I was always the kid in English class reading the Shakespeare text but always putting a character voice on so every time we would be reading plays and stuff in English class they’d always say, “Get Drew! Get Drew to read Friar Laurence.” It kind of stemmed from there.

It’s also kind of a crazy serendipitous thing. Our regular drama teacher went off on maternity leave and they called in this supply teacher from New York City and she had just graduated from Circle in the Square school. She came to our class on a temporary basis and she taught us real scene study stuff that she had learned in New York and I just instantly loved it. Lo and behold she thought that I had a knack for it and asked me to be a lead in a play. She was doing a play that year and cast me as a lead. The play was called Detective Story and it’s all history from there pretty much. She was the main reason why I got into it.

The Lady Geeks discuss how media headlines treat female celebrities, stupid people who doesn’t know how to eat sushi and the Black Widow standalone movie. Also, where’s our Wonder Woman movie still? The Space Pirate Queen also recommends the book, Wonder Woman Unbound. Fanfic Theatre: Lion King x Terminator, sort of?

Tim Hanley’s ‘Wonder Woman Unbound’

wonder woman unboundWonder Woman is as iconic as Batman and Superman, often hailed as the third to complete the DC trinity. She represents women in the super hero world and today, some of us here at Defective Geeks talk consider her lack of presence in popular media (i.e. blockbuster summer movies) a very important topic of discussion. On our podcast, we’ve questioned why every time a network attempts to create a new Wonder Woman television show, it is canceled before it ever airs. We’ve questioned why it’s so hard for writers to bring her back to life in her own standalone series or movie. As we eagerly await what will happen to the character in the next Superman/Batman movie by Zack Snyder, I was sent this book called Wonder Woman Unbound: The Curious History of the World’s Most Famous Heroine by author, Tim Hanley.
