It’s pretty clear that the new scoundrel in town, Ethan Lovett, has explosive potential with plenty of people in Port Charles. So much so in fact, that his portrayer Nathan Parsons just went on contract! I went to Nathan and gave him a welcome. In other words, I bombarded him with questions! What’s more, I asked him to give responses as himself as well as for Ethan Lovett so that his fans can start to see the difference. Let’s take a look at how Nathan differs from Luke’s ‘mini me’ in his real life. Describe your idea of a perfect weekend.

Nathan Parsons: An escape to the wild.

Ethan Lovett: Vegas, of course! What kind of pet most appeals to you?

Nathan: A big dog like a pit bull or a husky. I also like snakes.

Ethan: A monkey trained to pick pockets. What do you and your character have in common?

Nathan: We’re both free-spirited thrill seekers with a thirst for adventure. But, that’s just the tip of the iceberg! What about your character drives you nuts?

Nathan: His itchy fingers. What, if anything, about your character do you wish described you?

Nathan: I wish that I was a master bartender like Ethan is. What would you change about your life?

Nathan: Having to fill out interview questionnaires. Oh, and paying taxes!

Nathan deliberately, skillfully and quite playfully messed with me by not answering some of my questions and throwing in some that I hadn’t asked. He gave me a bit of a wink (through the email) and said that he enjoys a good dose of sarcasm. Could he be more perfectly cast? Welcome Nathan!
