So tell me a little bit about where your character starts off in Season 2. Was there anything that surprised you about where your character was 3 months after where we left you last season?
Drew Roy: I love the way the second season starts off with Hal in a leadership role. Dad hasn’t come back, and Hal finds himself in this place with these two younger brothers and someone has to look after them. The really surprising relationship though is between Hal and Ben, because Ben is trying to figure out who he is as a person and to make it more difficult he’s been harnessed and de-harnessed. He’s having all these side-effects from having that skitter blood in him. The relationship with Ben is really important to Hal. Ben has this new found personal vendetta against the skitters. Which you see in the first 3 minutes of the premiere, he wants to kill all of them and puts others in harm’s way by doing so.
What’s in-store between Hal and Maggie this season? Will Hal see Karen again?
Drew Roy: We will. She comes at a very interesting time. Hal’s main relationship this year is with Maggie. Maggie comes from a very different past, a very different lifestyle, and being on these missions – they’ve found a great friendship. They’re out there and one of them almost dies, and it makes them realize maybe it could be something more. They have to decide if that’s worth pursuing or not. Is it going to make them distracted? Would it make them better people? They don’t know. They’re trying to feel that out. It’s a relationship that’s just frustrating at times for the fans. You’re like ‘Oh they just misunderstand each other.’ And about the time it looks like something is going to happen… here comes Karen.
Is there a particular scene or episode in Season 2 that you’re really excited for fans to see?
Drew Roy: Oh there’s so many of them. I feel like we have so many good episodes this season. We have a whole new writing team for the most part. They came in and took the show in a similar but different direction. They made it darker and grittier. I think with the second episode, it just hits the ground running and never looks back. Episode 5 is a big one for Hal and Maggie, and there’s a huge payoff. Episode 6 and 7 are a two-parter…. I don’t even know what I can say without giving something away… 6 and 7 are great. They’re great. The final episodes leave on a cliffhanger… that if there isn’t a third season, I don’t know what people are going to do. [Laughs]
There was a time when Drew Roy, who was born in Birmingham and raised in Clanton, was a valet at the Beverly Hills Hotel, parking the cars of the rich and famous as he auditioned for TV spots and movies.
“Probably the biggest night of the year there is a huge party that goes on the night before the Academy Awards,” says Roy. “You’d see everybody from Tom Cruise to Brad Pitt to Will Smith to Steven Spielberg.” And then, all of a sudden, Roy, a graduate of Clanton’s Chilton County High School, was one of them.
“After I booked the series, the very next year I got an invitation to attend that same party,” he says with a laugh. “I drove up there, suit on and everything. I jumped out, and all my buddies were there. We laughed about it and the wild turn of events.”
Roy, 26, worked for five years at the valet job before things started happening for him.
But then things happened quickly.
“I booked a little spot on a TV show called ‘Greek,’ and all I had to say was, ‘Dang, those ZBZ girls were hot,’” Roy recalls. “I have never been more nervous.”
That eventually led to a guest spot on “iCarly” which led to a stint as Miley Cyrus’ boyfriend on “Hannah Montana” and a role in “Secretariat” on the big screen.
Now, he’s in his second season as Hal, the oldest son of Noah Wyle’s character on the TNT series “Falling Skies.”
