I didn't start off doing my dad's movies or anything. I did it all on my own.
Be yourself and be unique. Don't conform to the people around you.
I like girls with a sense of humour. You meet people that sometimes you connect with. You have to be attracted to them physically, obviously, but mainly it's if someone gets you or not.
Since Everwood began, I've got a lot more to do but, other than that, I haven't changed. I still prefer to hang out with my friends and joke around. Work is pretty much all consuming, so my love life is kind of non-existent. There's nothing too glamorous about my life.
Ephram's an angry teenager, I'm not like that at all. People tell me, I'm a big dork because I crack bad jokes.
Normally I'm kind of a loner, but on Everwood we've all got each other's back.-
