Home » Erik King Interview TakeFiveGal Spends Some Time With Doakes
TakeFiveGal : My dad is excited to watch the show on CBS. He’s not a cable guy, doesn’t get Showtime, so it speaks to the fact that it’ll reach a lot more people.
TakeFiveGal: When this all started coming together a couple years ago, why did you want to play this character?
TakeFiveGal: When people ask who my favorite character is, I list two, it’s you and Dexter.
TakeFiveGal: What was your favorite episode that you got to play over the years?
TakeFiveGal: Are you guys really close as a cast?
TakeFiveGal: What is your favorite thing about Doakes?
TakeFiveGal: He adds some humor to a rather dark show.
TakeFiveGal: Is it hard playing that character? In talking with you even for five minutes, you seem like you’re this really sweet guy in real life, you’re not exactly this myopic, intimidating guy…
TakeFiveGal: What are some shows that you watch when you get downtime?
TakeFiveGal: Oz is a very iconic show, you sort of get into it and you can’t stop watching.
TakeFiveGal: I would never have guessed two years ago that one of my favorite TV characters would be a serial killer.
TakeFiveGal: At least he’s killing people that have killed other people. There’s a way to rationalize it.
TakeFiveGal: It’s odd, but it’s nice to live vicariously through this character.
Erik King: Absolutely.
TakeFiveGal: Who are some of your favorite actors and actresses, or people you’d love to work with?
TakeFiveGal: You’ve been in the business for quite some time, how did the acting thing start?
TakeFiveGal: It’s definitely seemed to work out!
TakeFiveGal: You don’t get that feeling that there are still people that are compassionate out there in Hollywood, so it’s nice to hear it.
TakeFiveGal: What would you say to someone who hasn’t watched Dexter, what’s a reason to tune in?
TakeFiveGal: Thank you for spending some time with me.
