His character may have already been through a lot up to this point in the series, but Hornsby, whose television credits include “Lincoln Heights,” “In Treatment” and “Shameless,” enjoys working on “Grimm” immensely, and he named the cast and crew as the primary reason why.

“I've worked a long time in this business, and ... I don't think I've worked with a better collection of people ever in my life on film and television. ... I oftentimes show up to work early, and it's because I look forward to doing my job. The days are long, the nights are longer, the conditions are crazy. It's cold most of the time. It's rainy. But, when everybody brings a joy to their work and has a smile on their face, it's easy,” the actor said.

“Grimm” is shot in Portland, and Hornsby believes the location also adds to his positive experience of working on the show.

“I think it has a lot to do with the fact that we're working up here in Portland, and also, the people approach their jobs differently,” Hornsby said. “All the crew, they have such a work-life balance in what they do, and I think that has rubbed off on all of us as actors, making sure that we have a work-life balance.”
