And while you’re at it don’t miss the high resolution scans that are now up in the gallery!

HYDROGEN MAGAZINE: When did the acting bug get you?
DREW ROY: I was about to graduate high school and figured I’d go to Atlanta to get modeling gigs and I ran into a manager who had this brilliant idea that I could take over Hollywood [laughs]. It sort of fell into my lap. It wasn’t till I got out here that I realized I was in way over my head. I got into acting classes and that was when I realized how much I loved it.

HM: First impressions of Hollywood
DR: That it was a lot browner than I thought! I always thought it was this tropical place. I came out here with 5 best friends all we all lived in 1 bedroom apartments. It was a first real taste of freedom, living on our own and not having school or any obligations really.

HM: How did your family feel about the road you were about to embark on?
DR: They were terrified. But now things are going well they are glad but there’s always a little nervousness because nothing is guaranteed. Its funny because my dad’s a dentist and when I was on Hannah Montana, girls would run up and go, “that’s Drew Roy’s dad!”

HM: Let’s talk Falling Skies. How did the role of Hal Mason come to you?
DR: The old fashioned way. I auditioned over a month and a half. I remember doing the studio test, and driving on to universal lot. These giant wooden doors opened up and it was like being in Jurassic Park. I tested with Noah Wiley and usually there’s a 12 day window or something for the studio to call you back and they used every last one of them! I had gone out to dinner with my mom and it was one of those crescent moons. I got the job the next day.

So tell us how you got into acting?
A lot of naivety is what it is. I came from Alabama and I’m always the guy who was on sports teams and doing that kind of stuff. I never set foot on a stage or have been in front of the camera and I was in Atlanta goofing around trying to see what the whole modeling world would be like before I went to college so I could make a little extra money. While I was over there I met this manager who had a couple clients of names I recognized and somehow he got me to come out there. It was actually very simple. I was kind of shocked at how I fell into it so easily. The real kicker was I have these 5 best friends who were in a band and they were looking for something to do with their music so when I presented the idea that I could move to LA and they could come and they were like, “let’s do it.” So that’s how it began, with absolutely no experience and I quickly learned that I was in way over my head and had to buckle down and figure things out.

You did a bunch of ABC Family and Disney Shows, which one was your favorite?
They’re all different. But there was something very special about the iCARLY. That was the first major guest star spot I had ever done. It had such a funny twist with the character being so smooth and then turning into this absolute dork. But then the Hannah Montana there was something cool about that too because even though I didn’t follow the show I knew more about it. That was the first time I was working with Miley and working with an actor that well known. So, that was special. The GREEK and LINCOLN HEIGHTS shows, the kids were my age so there was something very fun about the people your age and having fun and realizing this is a pretty amazing job that we get to do.

Which one do you think you learned the most from?
I probably learned the most from iCARLY, because I was just thrown right into the frying pan. I remember showing up on set and I had to have the whole memorized because I don’t read well out loud, so I had to have it memorized while we were rehearsing it because that’s the way that those 30 minute sitcoms are done, you rehearse the show all day long. It really made me have to buckle down and cram a lot of stuff in one day which I thought really aided in creating a good work ethic.

How has Hal changed from season 1 to season 2?
The character has become more level-headed. He can’t rely on his dad anymore to make him not do something. This year he has to take full responsibility for his actions and he’s definitely more mature. As a young guy, even though it’s the alien apocalypse, he still has those hormones pumping through his body and he’s sort of becoming friendly with the Maggie character and they find themselves out on these missions together and having to camp out for days at a time as they do these scouting units. He finds a deep friendship with Maggie and as the season progresses they start realizing maybe this is more than a friendship as they are looking death in the eye, it sort of makes them realize there could be something more here. But at the same time they have to be careful of walking down that road. Is it just a lustful passion, will this make them become distracted and actually lead to their own or other people deaths or could this be a very beneficial thing that brings them closer together and makes them a more useful unit. Watching a guy go after a girl and not being able to get her is always fun.
