Priest – Cam Gigandet WonderCon Roundtable
I have to admit that I was dismissive of Cam Gigandet mostly out of a wrongheaded opinion of him as another vacuous, pretty-boy actor. I’m happy to say that I was wrong. I found him engaging and self-deprecating. In addition to being a black belt in Krav Maga (which explains the rumours that surround him about a starring role in an Iron Fist movie), he has a grounded quality that seems endemic to those born in the U.S. Pacific Northwest.
On this day, Gigandet, a brunette, was sporting a head of bleached blond hair. As he was sitting down, I asked if his sister, a celebrity hairstylist, had done his hair. When the interview starts you’ll hear him finishing the answer to my question.
After that, he covered a lot of ground in the short ten minutes of time from his part in Priest with Paul Bettany, the challenge of playing a hero instead of a villain, the upcoming Trespass with Nic Cage and Nicole Kidman, hopes for future superhero roles, and shares some funny stories about his career.
