Here’s a snippet for his interview with Fictionhorizion.com.
FH: Can you tell us a bit more about your character Samuel? Have you, perhaps, taken some inspiration for him from your earlier work? Maybe Rico? *laughs*
CVD: Yeah, I think I got a little bit of it from Rico, but he’s older now. Has a lot more wisdom… I hope. Sam does it for his family. A higher purpose. Rico, joined to get the girl. Two very different motivations and I relate to them both. Anytime that I have the honor to play a military man, I look to my dad. He served in the Navy as a Pilot and a CDR. He is my hero and I always wanna do right by him and those who served.
FH: Do you think your family’s military history helped you nail these military roles, as well as your own college prep?
CVD: The men of my family who served, gave me the freedom to do what I love. For us to all be here and getting a shot. It’s the least I could do, to give it my all, after the sacrifices of those brave soldiers.
