Every single day of our lives is packed with decisions, which decide the fate of our future.
In an actor’s life, these decisions revolve around the choice of roles in various projects.
While some of these decisions may go on to make these stars superstars, others may serve as a death knell to their careers.
Kevin McKidd was faced with this ubiquitous dilemma, when he had finished filming for a hit BBC series, and was in search of a new project.
Despite the numerous offers coming his way, Kevin couldn’t quite find that one role that made him put his entire heart and soul into it.
However, the script of ‘Journeyman’ changed all that, and Kevin was ready to sign up for the role instantly!
The actor admits that he knew that he was taking a risk, but taking chances is something that he loves doing in life, which is why he fearlessly took the plunge.
Even though the decision might not have proved commercially successful for Kevin, with the series having gone off-air after its first season, he definitely had a worthwhile time on the show, as an actor, and took with him, an experience that he would cherish for a lifetime.
To put it in his own words, if he had to spend entire nights filming on the sets of a show, then the cast and crew of ‘Journeyman’ were the people he wanted to do it with.
Talking of Kevin Falls and Alex Graves, the actor says that both these men are ‘beautiful people’, and he had great fun with them around.
Even though the actor had to play a particularly challenging role on the show as a time traveler, he says that he did not have to undergo any intensive preparation for the role.
Having journalists on the show’s writers’ team helped Kevin in understanding the nuances of the profession, which was a part of his role.
As for switching accents between Scottish and American, the actor says that he faced absolutely no problem in doing that, since imitating accents has been a childhood hobby for him.
