You're always posting amazing videos on Instagram about making challenges for yourself and being brave, what advice would you give me as I have to go in for another craniotomy? ~ Sammy Johns
Firstly, Sammy, let me wish you a speedy recovery from your surgery. Now, bravery as I see it is all about perspective. We are not defined by the things that we do, nor by the things that are done to us, but how we react to them. Every moment is an opportunity to learn and grow and this incredible experience you are going through is a chance for you to show others how brave you can be and inspire them from your example.

StarsQA has been online for 5 years, so we were wondering what has been your favorite career highlight from the past 5 years? ~ StarsQA Team
I am lucky to have had an incredible career over this last 5 years. It's hard to pick a highlight. But standing on a set with Joe Johnston and talking about his designs for the original Star Wars is definitely up there.
Any info on when and where Absentia will be shown in the US? Now that upfronts are over, it's a little worrisome that there was no mention of Absentia on any network or US cable channels for fall. ~ Mary
Hi Mary, I know that the production team are in active negotiations to secure a distributor for all non AXN countries, including the US and U.K. I am sure an announcement will be made in the coming weeks...
With the decline and now cancellation of Sleepy Hollow. Why wasn't The Horseman used to his full potential? Would have been great to see him as a Ghost Rider type of character. ~ Robert
I cannot speak for the writers of the show, but I felt that the way they reinvented The Horseman was incredibly smart and creative. The depth of character they gave me to play with Abraham gave a sad empathy for an otherwise two dimensional villain, and divided an audiences sympathies. That to me is incredibly clever and rewarding.
I'm curious, obviously you was in miobi which is a totally different show to Absentia but did you learn anything about acting whilst you were in miobi and if so, did it help you film Absentia? ~ Emma
I learn so much from every job that I do. That's the nature of acting. It's an exploration, and each role and project is a playground for growth and discovery. Sasha, at his root, had a lonely sense of betrayal - that he was ostracized from the gymnastics community that he loved. Jack in Absentia has at his core very similar feelings.
Did you know or had heard of Stana Katic before Absentia? ~ Cindy
I knew of Stana's work and have always been impressed by it. And of course, we both played pivotal roles in the Bond franchise in Quantum Of Solace.
Are there any difference in the relationship between your character and Stana's character from their childhood to where she makes her comeback from 'death?' ~ Colleen
Of course, there are huge changes. Siblings grow and the relationship evolves.
If you could describe Absentia in three words, which ones would you use? ~ Fania
What. Is. Real.
I love your Music CD, especially 'Holding a candle' ❤️. What else do you have coming up project wise? ~ ~Carmen from Germany
Thank you, Carmen. I am currently working on a collaboration with Bulgaria hip-hop star Kristo. That should be released towards the end of June.
You seemed to really enjoy Bulgaria while shooting Absentia. Was that your first time there? What about it did you enjoy the most? Also, are you now addicted to Escape Rooms? :):) ~ Quasar
I love Bulgaria. Such a fun and exciting city. I enjoyed meeting the people, learning the culture and, yes, cultivating my new addiction to escape rooms.
