Neil Hopkins is an American actor… although one of his most famous roles is as a Brit. He played musician “Liam Pace”, older brother to Dominic Monaghan’s Charlie on ABC’s LOST, between 2004-2010. Although Neil only appeared in 5 episodes, they spanned throughout the series’ entire run.
More recently, Neil Hopkins is starring as DC Comics villain Sportsmaster on Stargirl. The series was created by Geoff Johns and is airing on both DC Universe and The CW. Additionally, he plays the character’s civilian identity: Larry ‘Crusher’ Crock, a gym owner in Blue Valley, Nebraska.
Many thanks to Neil for taking the time to chat with Courageous Nerd. Among other topics, we discussed his roles on both LOST and Stargirl, what it’s like playing a supervillain, and the process of adopting Liam Pace’s Mancunian accent.
Canadian actor Jesse Camacho got his big break by starring as lead character ‘Sheldon Blecher’ in Less Than Kind. The comedy drama aired from 2008 to 2013. In fact, you could say that he has acting in his blood – parents Mark Camacho and Pauline Little are also in show business. More recently, Jesse has a recurring part on Netflix hit Locke & Key, where he plays the role of ‘Doug Brazelle’, a member of the Savini Squad and friend of leading characters Kinsey Locke (Emilia Jones) and Scot Cavendish (Petrice Jones).
It was a delight that Jesse took the time to sit down with Courageous Nerd for an exclusive interview. We chatted about his career, the differences between acting on network TV and a streaming show, how he was inspired to enter acting by his parents and which television series was Jesse’s “religion” while in High School, among many more fun topics.
