Grey Da­mon and his cop char­ac­ter Brian Shafe are hunt­ing se­rial killer Charles Man­son (Gethin An­thony) in fic­tional drama Aquar­ius (2015-2016) and he loves Brian’s du­al­ity. “He isn’t re­ally a cop. He’s un­der­cover, so he’s got to pre­tend to be what­ever the sit­u­a­tion calls for,” says Grey. As it turns out, Grey took a les­son on be­ing stealthy, be­cause he’s super pri­vate about his life…

1 The 29-year-old grew up want­ing to be a car­toon­ist and an­i­ma­tor, adding that “my favourite [graphic novel] is The Walk­ing Dead (2003-cur­rent).

2 Grey did back-flips in 2013 when he was in­vited to the 10th an­niver­sary Walk­ing Dead party at ComicCon be­cause he got to meet the cast of the show that started in 2010.

3 He got into act­ing af­ter be­ing sent to drama camps for the sum­mer hol­i­days, “But I never thought it would be a ca­reer,” says the ac­tor. Turns out the cast­ing di­rec­tors from the Den­ver Theater Cen­ter thought other­wise in the mid 2000s and cast him as Pe­ter Cratchit in their Christ­mas Carol play.

4 Grey’s film and TV ca­reer kicked off in 2009 as a waiter in re­boot se­ries 90210 (2008-2013) and he had to wait a year un­til his first “recurring role”, as quar­ter­back Kitch May­nard for three episodes of vam­pire se­ries True Blood (2008-2014).

5 He’s been dat­ing Alice 5 Greczyn (Lau­rie in the 2005 Dukes Of Haz­zard re­boot film) since 2014 but jokes, “She knows about my celebrity “pass” – Kerry Wash­ing­ton, Olivia Pope in Alice The Fixer (2012-cur­rent). Greczyn.

6 And as for hob­bies and down­time, Grey still loves his sketch­ing.
