April Supanova guest Tyler Posey brought the house down on the Gold Coast, rolling through a slew of crowd questions alongside Teen Wolf co-star and panel crasher Tyler Hoechlin.
Here are some highlights from the Teen Wolf event.
Posey: “Being able to inspire people and meet people. I’ve had a lot of qualms with acting – I haven’t really taken too kindly to the celebrity aspect of it and it’s just been an adjustment over the years. Now I love it and know how to handle it.”
“The cool thing about Teen Wolf was it was my first lead that I’ve ever done and I loved leading the set, setting a tone for everybody and I just wanted everyone to have fun and have a good time on set and not take their jobs too seriously. In the end, we’re just telling stories.”
Hoechlin: “For me, the coolest part about being an actor is you have to jump into different character’s shoes, and so for me, the coolest thing is having to see the world through different people’s eyes and force yourself to understand that everybody comes from different circumstances… I really enjoy being able to see the world through different perspectives – I think it’s good and keeps you open to people that you meet.”
Posey: “I love the zombie from Santa Clarita Diet, and I like it because it’s such a different take.
Hoechlin: “I like the Dire Wolves and Dragons in Game of Thrones.”
Posey: “I really, really, really enjoy being on the other side of the lens. The reason why I like acting is because it’s a part of filmmaking as a whole, and I love filmmaking as a whole – I think it’s the coolest thing ever. I love camera operating, I love even pulling focus. I directed an episode of Teen Wolf, I was a producer for the last few seasons and I would love to make a career out of that.”
Hoechlin: “I think if you enjoy being on set, it’s something that naturally sinks in. I would love to direct someday, try my hand at that.”
Posey: “Impossible question to answer. Probably season one, though. It’s kind of difficult because each season is so different and we were in such different phases of our lives for each season. But with season one, there was so much excitement and we all lived with each other.”
Hoechlin: “I would say season one and season two are always kind of up there because, as much as it was nice to come home to California for season three and after that, there’s something about filming on location – you kind of feel like you’re away on a project together. Season one was so new and exciting, and trying to figure out what this thing was, then season two was kind of cool because we knew people were liking it.”
Posey: “Music to me is… it’s so hard to describe what it does. I don’t quite understand it. It changes my mood; I can’t live without it. I’m sure you guys are huge fans of music as well. It’s so hard to describe what it does to you; it makes you a better person. It uplifts me.”
Hoechlin: “I think for everything that was still out there, all storylines that were still going on at that point, I enjoyed it; just because I got to go back and say goodbye, which was nice. It’s always got to end, and I think with TV it’s really hard to have [a finale] that everyone is happy with. Personally, I enjoyed the chance to go back and close it off that way.”
Posey: “I thought it was really sweet, I loved that you came back, [Hoechlin]. The whole idea that all of us were together again, I did enjoy it, I thought it was really cool.”
Posey: “If Teen Wolf were to go for the rest of my life, I would be happy. I am down to do more Teen Wolf forever. I love that show, I would love to do a movie – I never wanted it to end.”
