Alfred Enoch Talks Theater, Life Lessons, and More
In a wonderfully candid interview with Huffington Post UK, Alfred Enoch (Dean Thomas) dives headfirst into some profound subjects as part of the magazine’s “Wise Words” interview series.
Ever since his role as Dean Thomas ended with the Harry Potter films, Alfred has worked on some pretty impressive projects, led by his starring role in the US legal drama series, How to Get Away with Murder. Now, the 27-year-old actor ventures into the world of theater with the critically acclaimed theatrical production of King Lear. In this interview, Alfred talks about being happiest when he’s working, saying,
Not that I like [theater] more than TV, but the release of being on stage is very exciting to me. […] I find that exhilarating.
Alfred, like many of the Harry Potter alumni, joined the cast at the young age of 12. When asked what advice he would give to his 13-year-old self, the actor said,
Rejoice. Don’t worry about it. It doesn’t matter that much. Throw yourself into it, and don’t check yourself.
He also talks about How to Get Away with Murder and the show’s upcoming season.
We’re about to start shooting the next season of this TV show ‘How to Get Away With Murder’, and everyone is so enthused to see each other. I’ve been in a different continent, other people have been travelling for work, scattered to the winds, and now we return. There’s a lot of warmth when everyone gets back together.
