Defiance - Jesse Rath Interview

Thanks to Philomina for the heads up.

How did you get into acting? Have you always wanted to be an actor?

As far back as I can remember, my sister and I were always putting on plays for our family and friends every chance we got. My parents are big supporters of the Arts and so I was always encouraged creatively as a child. When I was around 15, I landed myself an agent while trying out for a local play and I’ve been auditioning for Film/TV projects ever since.

What was the auditioning process like for the role of Alak Tarr?

I auditioned for Alak three times in the span of four months. My first audition was in Los Angeles where I sent in a tape of myself reading a scene from a very early draft of the Pilot. After 2 months of not hearing anything back, I got a call from my agent telling me I needed to fly to Toronto (Canada) to audition again in person for the Director, Scott Stewart. I then returned to LA to audition for a third time and before I knew it, I was on a plane back to Toronto to shoot the pilot.

What was it about the character that appealed to you?

Well aside from the fact that he’s a bleach white-skinned, blue haired, pink-eyed alien with a chip on his shoulder, Alak is a very unique character. We get to see an alien who acts just the same as any angsty teen who’s in love with his girlfriend, annoyed with his parents, infatuated with music and has a mouth that’s always getting him into trouble.

How much time do the make-up artists need with you before you begin shooting? And what do you like best about Alak's look?

It takes about 2 hours in hair and make-up to get me from looking like a brown human kid to a white alien kid. I’d have to say that my favorite part about Alak’s look is his alien eyes. They’re usually the final step in the transformation and I don’t feel complete until I pop them in.
