Ryan Kwanten’s 5 Tips for Reaching New Heights in Acting

Ryan Kwanten’s taking a bite out of romantic comedy starring in “The Right Kind of Wrong” with Sara Canning. He plays Leo Palamino, a failed writer whose wife leaves him after writing a blog about all his faults (which she later sells as a book). Kwanten’s character has a lot of hurdles to jump in his unfailing pursuit of the married woman (Canning) he falls for in the quirky comedy.

“The Right Kind of Wrong” hit theaters today, March 14, allowing audiences to see another side of Kwanten in the departure from his ladies’ man role as Jason Stackhouse on HBO’s “True Blood.” Kwanten is excited about the final season of “True Blood” as well. “Heads will roll, that’s for certain, and some of our favorite characters will die,” he teases.

The Australian actor shares some dos and don’ts about acting.

Trust the writing.
When “The Right Kind of Wrong” came along, Kwanten was intrigued by the character of Leo and by the different twist the film took on the romantic comedy genre. “I had a particular way that I wanted to play the character.” Director Jeremiah Chechik liked Kwanten’s take. Kwanten trusted the writing to help with his characterization. “Megan [Martin] had written such a well-crafted screenplay that I didn’t feel the need to overact to get the point across that he was genuinely and quite crazily in love with this woman…and when the whole world knows pretty much every single one of his faults, how is he going to get this woman to see him? I thought it was a really interesting way to approach that genre.”

‘True Blood’ final season: Favorites will die

Ryan Kwanten, who plays Jason Stackhouse on HBO’s True Blood, says the final season of the vampire (and other creatures) series is about one-third of the way through filming.

Access Hollywood asked him what we can expect in terms of surprises as the series wraps, and Kwanten said that “nothing” is being left to chance.

We all know we’ll be saying goodbye to Bon Temps, but we’d better be prepared to say goodbye to some favorite characters.

“People are going to be dying,” he said, which wouldn’t be anything out of the ordinary for the show. But he added, “Some of your favorites are going to be not lasting the season, unfortunately.”
