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.
