Nick Jonas HP interview: Jonas spent two months in the gym just working on his legs and core to prepare for the physical demands of a part that leaves even fit actors out of breath. He’s also tweaked his diet, which he already carefully monitors as a diabetic.
‘More than anything, it’s about pacing yourself and trying to understand your own body and how you’ll respond and react both in the physical sense and just the major life adjustment that comes into play when you make the leap into something like this.’
Michael Urie: ‘I have never met anyone who has gobs of fans like Nick does. He is so incredibly aware of them, respectful of them and gracious with them. He always stops to talk with them and take photos.’
Nick: ‘I loved the show. I thought it was fantastic. I thought Daniel, specifically, was amazing in his commitment to the role and the ownership that he took, not only in this theater every night but to the whole community,” he says. “It was pretty inspiring to see his performance and I only hope to give one that’s close to it.’
