Perry looks for characters he can relate to when choosing an acting role, “... that you can sort of shake hands with and understand,” he said.
“I have a tendency to try to find characters that are sort of bent or broken and on a path to become better people, and Ryan King certainly has those traits,” Perry said. “He's a guy who I think if this tragic thing had not happened to him, he would've lived his life as sort of a rather unexplored life. But, this thing did happen to him so he reluctantly gets on this path to be a better person.”
And familiar names are mentioned when the actor shares which characters have been his favorite to play throughout his career so far.
“I loved playing Chandler. ... I grew up sort of playing that part. I would say probably in all honesty it's Chandler and it's this character that I'm playing now. The character of Ryan King is a very sort of deep, enriching character to play because he's going through so much and he's also being very funny about it. So, I guess I would say Chandler and Ryan King.”
