OK Magazine talks with Tyler

Posted on June 25, 2013 by Bets in Articles, Teen Wolf, Tyler 0

Tyler Hoechlin who plays Derek Hale:

 
How would you describe Teen Wolf to a new UK audience who might not have seen it? 
 
Well, if you compare it to the film, it’s got intelligent humour rather than out-and-out comedy, it’s got horror elements and it really looks at the time in your life when you’re going from being a teenager to an adult and all the changes that happen there.
 
I think the show has taken on a life of its own now and the only comparison that can be made with the film is that we have the same title.
 
What’s the best thing about working together?
 
What’s not to like? When I get the call sheet the first thing I do is see who is going to be on set the next day so you know who you’ll be hanging out with. It’s like being with your best friends every day and even if we’re not doing scenes together we’ll hang out at the catering truck.
 
Given the fact you have to be in shape for the show are you allowed to wolf down all that food?
 
[Laughs] No, but I have to have coffee to keep me going and every now and then I’ll sneak some popcorn. There is pressure to be in shape. I put on weight for season two because I wanted Derek to appear strong, but then they only gave me one shirtless scene. 
 
But you need to be ready because at any moment they could go ‘You have to be half-naked in this scene’. 
 
I let things go a little bit during the hiatus, then when filming starts up again I’m back on the diet. It’s funny because on the DVDs you get the montages of us all with our shirts off so you’ve gotta stay in shape. That’s the most difficult thing about doing the show – I really miss being able to eat bread.
 
Whose career do you aspire to and why? 
 
There are so many people I look up to: Robert Downey Jr, Johnny Depp, George Clooney, Tom Hanks. Those are the big four but then Christian Bale is an amazing actor, Matt Damon is brilliant… 
 
The guys I admire are those who can jump from one genre to another and who are really good at disappearing into a character. Actors who aren’t afraid to take risks are the ones I really respect.
 
What do you fear the most in life?
 
Regret. I like to think that with whatever I do I’m totally committed to it and taking risks is a good thing. I don’t want to look back and go ‘I should have tried that’. The only way to exceed your limits is to push yourself. Oh and I’m scared of great white sharks. I like to surf so sharks are my biggest fear although, knock on wood, I’ve never encountered one so far.
 
Have you ever embarrassed yourself in front of a celebrity or a hero? 
 
I met Matthew Perry when I was a kid. I’m a huge Friends fan and I happened to be in a room he was in. I got introduced to him, I said ‘Hi’ and then I outstayed my welcome by just staring at him while he was in another conversation. Eventually I thought ‘OK, I should just go now’.
 
Who’s your celebrity crush and why? Have you met her?
 
Growing up I had a huge crush on Keira Knightley. I saw her in Pirates Of The Caribbean and thought she was so feisty. I’ve never met her but maybe one day I’ll get to work with her. Here’s hoping.
 
What’s been the strangest Tweet you’ve ever received? 
 
It’s weird when people ask me to bite them. Because of the show I kind of get where they’re coming from but it’s a little bizarre, but also they might be thousands of miles away so it’s not really convenient, is it?
 
What are your experiences of the LA dating scene?
 
It’s definitely not easy. It’s a busy town. People are coming in and out all the time, you’re coming in and out all the time yourself… It’s hectic and there’s not that sense of community where you get to know everyone around you in your local area. 
 
Does the ‘casting couch’ really go on in Hollywood? 
 
[Laughs] That I don’t know. I know the phrase but I can’t confirm the existence of it. You hear crazy stories but then LA is full of rumours, but I can honestly say it’s never happened to me.
