When he was about 29 years old, he starred as the boyfriend of renowned singer, Britney Spears, in her music video for Toxic.

In May 2020 he spoke to Chatting with B about his role in Virgin River while sporting a handsome, rugged look.

He moved to LA when he was younger and he commented on the long hours he would spend on set, working on various film projects.

He said: “It can be tough, and I have certainly suffered at times from a little bit of workaholism, too.

“When I work I try and work pretty hard and I spend a lot of time preparing for my work as well, so weekends I’ll spend a lot of time pouring over scripts.

“It can be stressful and with the tiredness too, what I find is if I don’t get enough rest, mentally and emotionally I can be a little less stable.”

The star said his lifestyle could sometimes take its toll, but he always made the most of the time he did get off work.

The third season of Virgin River is in the making and his character, Jack Sheridan, is expected to have some major storylines this season.

Jack was shot by an anonymous assassin at his bar during the season two finale, and fans are curious to know who attacked him.

The good thing is, he is likely to have survived the shooting, as fans would be heartbroken to see his character leave the series.
