Based in Los Angeles, Richard is a music lover who plays the guitar, the piano, the drums and even the bass. As he tells us, “creative expression was always a part of my DNA”. So, it wasn’t a surprise when he decided to enter into the artistic atmosphere of acting, not before going through some modelling experience and fashion photoshoots. Some of his first roles in TV series like Veronica Mars (2019) or Truth Be Told (2019) have paved his way to this new opportunity: playing Brad Lewis in I Am Not Okay With This.
Produced by Shawn Levy (Stranger Things) and directed by Jonathan Entwistle (The End of the F***Ing World), I Am Not Okay With This is Netflix’s upcoming must-see series. This supernatural coming-of-age show is based on the graphic novel by Charles Forsman, in which we get to know the secrets of a 15-year-old girl called Sydney – how she falls in love with her best friend, Dina, the bizarreness of her father’s death and some painful telekinesis powers that she is trying to control. Now, all the characters of the story will be embodied by a cast that includes Sophia Lillis, Wyatt Oleff, Kathleen Perkins and, of course, Richard.
Go through this interview where we talk with the up-and-coming actor about his passion for cinema and acting, fashion, and his role as Brad Lewis in this new original Netflix series. It was an interesting chat, we just hope that he is okay with this.
