Don’t ex­pect Nathan Fil­lion to find a new chal­lenge on

Cas­tle by jump­ing into the direc­tor’s chair any time soon. Screen­writ­ing is also off the cards. The 43-year-old got his start in theatres­ports with Rapid Fire Theatre be­fore land­ing the role of Joey Buchanan on TV soap One Life to Live. Fil­lion has also linked with pro­ducer Joss Whe­don for TV se­ries Buffy the Vam­pire

Slayer and Fire­fly as well as movies Seren­ity and Much Ado About Noth­ing. Act­ing is his pas­sion. “I love work­ing a scene – the life be­tween the lines,” Fil­lion says. “You’ve got so much life on the [script] page but there is so much more to be had [in the act­ing]. “As far as how the cam­eras work and here’s the shots I need [di­rect­ing], I don’t have that eye and nor do I have that burn­ing de­sire to do it. “I tried my hand at writ­ing but I found it to be very stress­ful. I’m go­ing to leave that to the smart peo­ple.”
