How did you get involved with Believe?

Alfonso said that he wanted to talk to me about this project, so I got on the phone with him and Mark, one of the creators of the show, and I really liked what they were saying. Their ideas were not only for the show, but the character in particular and that's what interested me in becoming part of this project.

How would you describe your character?

My character's name is Milroy Winter and I am the primary protector of Bo Adams, the young girl with supernatural powers in the show. I?m the former business partner of Roman Skouras ? played by Kyle. Winter keeps Bo from all of the negative forces and negative people who want to control her. Miss Channing [played by Jamie Chung] and I work hand-in- hand to do that ? along with a team of people that we've gotten together.

There's an obvious supernatural element to the show. Do you believe in the supernatural?

I have not had any supernatural experiences. However, I would say that I believe there's more to life than the here and now that we see.

Are you a fan of supernatural shows?

To be honest, I do not watch TV. I?m serious! I don't know what's on TV that has supernatural elements, so I guess the answer would have to be no!
