At the 2016 Kansas City Comic Con, John had the opportunity to host a panel with actor Peter Shinkoda, who has been featured in Daredevil and Falling Skies.
“Professor” John takes Peter on a journey through his life story – his family’s Japanese heritage, growing up in Canada and auditioning for Steven Spielberg. Peter discusses the roles he gets offered, and the challenges of those roles not being invited back for sequels. Note to any casting managers reading this post – Peter would love it if his character could survive long enough to see the closing credits.
We get the inside scoop on his last minute audition for Falling Skies and the opportunities that job gave him going forward. Peter also shares the long, secretive casting process for playing Nobu on Netflix’s Daredevil series.
