Guess what?!? I got the chance to post a Character Interview!
Questions provided by Mary-Kathryn Craft
MKC: You shoot a majority of your films on location. Do you have a favorite city?
EC: I’ve traveled all over the world with my career. Of all the movies I’ve done I think my favorite city might have been New Orleans. As you know, a lot happened on the Masquerade set, so it meant a lot to all of us to be able to complete that movie. New Orleans is a fun town. Some good bars in the Quarter I highly recommend.
MKC: Now that another successful movie has wrapped, tell us a little about your next project.
EC: I’m trying to focus on my charity, the Carlson Foundation, which helps at-risk youth get involved in sports. I’m reading a few scripts right now, but I haven’t committed to another film quite yet.
MKC: Our readers know you were a college football star before you became an actor, but explain how the two roles are similar. Did playing football prepare you for some of your more daredevil-like roles? How did it help mold you into the leading man you are today?
EC: I’ll tell you what, I feel some of those football injuries when I’m working on stunts. Seriously, it helps to have an athletic background in my films that are more physical. I think it gives me a sense of discipline since I’m used to training, practices, and paying attention to my body. I learned to handle a lot of pressure on the football field, believe it or not that comes into play in my life now more than ever.
MKC: What’s your favorite part about being an actor? (Besides getting to spend so much time with all the lovely ladies like Emmy Harper).
EC: I really enjoy taking on new roles and working on my character. I guess that’s why I take on so many different parts. I can be a spy one day and a baseball player the next. It’s pretty awesome.
MKC: What’s the most challenging aspect of being an actor and Hollywood’s Most Eligible Bachelor for that matter?
EC: I don’t want to disappoint my fans or my family. There are parts of this business that make it hard to make everyone happy. As for the bachelor part, I try not to think about it. I’m just here to have a good time.
MKC: If you had to pick an entirely new career that didn’t involve Hollywood or football, what would it be and why?
EC: That’s a good question. I’d like to think I’d be doing something really cool, but probably I’d end up in my hometown of Brees running for mayor or something.
MKC: Describe what your perfect day would be like.
EC: My favorite days are the ones I can spend on my ranch with my buddies, drinking beer, and just hanging out.
MKC: Throw our female readers and your fans a hint of hope. How serious are things really getting with Emmy Harper?
EC: Aw, they don’t really care about that do they, darlin’? Emmy and I had a good time working on Masquerade and I’ll just leave it at that.
T.A. Foster is a Southern girl whose heart and spirit are connected to the beach. She grew up catching rays and chasing waves along the North Carolina Outer Banks and now resides in the state with her adventurous pilot husband, two children and two canine kiddos.
Her long love affair with books started at an early age, and as soon as she was able, she transformed imaginative stories into words on paper. Time Spell is T.A.’s debut novel, and the first in a series about a very adventurous, clever, and magical girl named Ivy.
T.A. has an undergraduate degree in Journalism and Mass Communication from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a graduate degree in Educational Psychology from Texas A&M University. When she’s not chasing her two-legged and four-legged children or trying to escape for date night, you can find her reading, writing or planning her next beach trip.
