Completely charming actor Theo Devaney took time out of his busy schedule to chat about his guest appearance on next week’s ‘Supernatural’ episode ‘King of the Damned.’ Originally from London, Devaney now lives in Vancouver and is enjoying a successful career with his upcoming roles in the films ‘Night at the Museum 3’ and ‘Becoming Sophie.’ Passionate about active and his writing, get to know this very talented actor.
Q. Welcome to ‘Supernatural’ fandom. Can you share what it was like on the set of ‘King of the Damned?’
A. As an actor, you feel a sense of pressure coming on to the job, and the expectations of the team. You don’t want to be someone that doesn’t deliver. Basically you want to try to stick to the tone and style of the scene. The director was an experienced and brilliant director, and a lovely man to work with. It was an enjoyable experience with the camaraderie of the crew. I think at the end of the day everyone knows they’re working towards something that’s enjoyed by many, many people. It’s an extremely popular show. It absolutely was a pleasure. The actors and everyone I worked with was just lovely.
Q. Tell your fans about the ‘Night at the Museum 3’ and your latest project called ‘Becoming Sophie.’
A. It’s a short film being directed by Crystal Lowe who is quite a well known actress. This is her directorial debut; this is essentially a love story that doesn’t quite work out. I play her long-time friend who in spite of their hard work, it just doesn’t work out. The actors are good and Crystal as a director was a pleasure to work with. She understood how to make us feel like a million dollars. I’m also filming ‘Night of the Museum 3’ which is opening in October. I play a historical figure from Britain and it was huge fun.
Q. I read that you play guitar and saxophone. Do you have any other hidden talents?
A.I used to play the saxophone when I was in my teens, but I haven’t played for a while. I’m one of those people who, unless I’m really passionate about something, I tend to let it go. I listen to lot of saxophone music. It’s a lovely instrument. I was in a commercial with Beyoncé back in 2007 for a couple of days. I played a black saxophone that was spray painted because that was the way they wanted it, but too bad it was unplayable. It looked really good though. Hidden talents? I can hold a tune. I’m more of a pop singer. I write as well. I’m writing my first film; a short film. It’s a completely different challenge than acting is.
Q. If you were a baseball player, what would your walk up song be? Or would you be a cricket player?
A. I am a cricket fan actually. I think now it would be Macklemore’s ‘Can’t Hold Us’ is my inspirational song. I love it because it describes a person who is following their passion. Stand alone on your own two feet when facing obstacles.
