Zach recently sat down with The Italian Rêve for an interview. You can also check out their behind the scenes video below & the gorgeous photos in the gallery.

I’ve spoken with a lot of fellow “Black Sails” fans, throughout the years, and they all have one thing in common: Charles Vane is a hero.

In a show where the lines between bad and good guys are blurred, it’s hard to tell who is the knight in (well) shining warship and who’s just straight up bad, and the Ranger’s captain went from declared enemy to ally to friend, ending up being one of the best, and most loved, characters of the show.
Quite the same goes for the Grounder Prince Roan, one of the major characters in the third and fourth seasons of The CW show “The 100,” although we first see him antagonizing the protagonist, Clarke Griffin. Then, he’ll get closer and closer to many other characters, from his guard Echo to the Sky People.

Now, powerful characters need powerful actors to play them, and Zach McGowan certainly knows how to take a character and turn him into something as close as possible to a relatable, three-dimensional, real human being. 


From “Shameless” to “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D” and the movie “Dracula Untold,” alongside Luke Evans, Zach has shown the audience how deep characterization, fascinating acting and breath-taking action can go side by side. Be it on a post-nuclear-bombing North America or in the New Providence island, where rivers of Grog meet oceans of Blue, or as the legendary Scorpion King, Zach managed to create characters we loved and cried for. We had the pleasure to meet him in Los Angeles, to discuss with him his past works and his many upcoming projects, plus the things he would like to do in the future. 

So, whether you’re still waiting for Jody Silverman to be back on “Shameless,” if your cheered for Charles until the last moment (we sure did) or if you’re waiting for the upcoming release of “The Scorpion King- Book of Souls,” here’s the interview you definitely can’t miss.


Let’s start with an easy one; what made you want to become an actor?
________________

When I was a kid, I started acting pretty early on, doing plays at school and so on. I think it was always a part of the things that I enjoyed. Basically, in school, I really liked gym and the acting class. There were some other things that I enjoyed, but those two were what I really looked forward to. I always wanted to be either an actor, a professional athlete or even a professional soldier – there was a time I wanted to do that. I always wanted to do acting. What made me want to do it? I guess my love for it.

________________

Talking about “Shameless,” in your opinion, Jody’s “happy family” with Karen will ever be back from Arizona?
________________

I think that Zach, the actor, will always love to reprise that role. So, in my opinion, there are a lot of ways of coming back from Arizona with the happy family, why not?! I share everyone’s desire to do that.
________________

So, you are still following the show then, and who’s your favorite character?
________________

Yes, I still watch it!
I watch it, just the same, whether I’m in or off. Carl has always been a really interesting character. I mean, I watched Ethan [Cutkosky] growing up on the show. And also the kids: the younger ones are the most interesting, and I would say, Debbie. I’ve just had the chance to do a movie again with Emma [Kenney], and there is something cool about just watching their arks in the show and also watching their arks in real life.

“So, in my opinion, there are a lot of ways
of coming back from Arizona
with the happy family,
why not?!”
