Teen Wolf Sea­son 3 SABC2 (*192) 23:00 Sci-fi

TV Plus (South Africa) - - MOVIE MENU -

Sea­son 3 of Teen Wolf (2011-cur­rent) isn’t just big­ger with 24 episodes, it’s also got a big­ger cast list. And one of the names that’s im­pos­si­ble to ig­nore is Sin­qua Walls. The 32-year-old is play­ing bad-boy Beta wolf Boyd and Sin­qua jokes that “I’m a softie, but I’ve got the phys­i­cal­ity to be the guy you don’t want to meet in an al­ley­way”.

1 He ad­mits that if act­ing hadn’t worked out, “I’d prob­a­bly have gone into the NBA.” Sin­qua was an all-star bas­ket­ball player through out col­lege at Cal Poly.

2 De­spite his on-field tal­ent, Sin­qua had wanted to be an ac­tor since he was 11 and says that he mem­o­rised his favourite movie The Red Flyer after watch­ing the fan­tasy drama for the first time in 1992.

3 Act­ing and sport aren’t the only things he’s good at: he was a pub­lished poet by the time he turned 20 and taught him­self to play the gui­tar.

4 Some­thing he’s re­ally proud of is be­ing one of the only black ac­tors to play Sir Lancelot – he por­trayed the role in fan­tasy se­ries Once Upon A Time (2011-cur­rent) un­til 2015.

5 Be­fore Teen Wolf and Once Upon A Time, Sin­qua had ap­peared in sport-themed se­ries Fri­day Night Lights (2006-2011), which he loved “be­cause I got to do all my char­ac­ter Ja­mar­cus’s bas­ket­ball stunts [Laughs].”

6 What he doesn’t miss about Teen Wolf is the make-up. “We used to spend like two hours a morn­ing get­ting make-up done. That is too much time!”

7 As for fan mo­ments, he felt let down when “we went off the set still with our ears and con­tacts on. No one said a thing. It’s LA, just an­other weird guy in a weird cos­tume.”

Sin­qua wasn’t a fan of his char­ac­ter’s make-up.
