Pasadena, CA -- The worlds of sci-fi and fantasy have been kind to actor Nathan Dean Parsons, who currently stars as Deputy Sheriff Max Evans on The CW’s Roswell, New Mexico. Over the course of his career, Parsons (pictured above) has played a gay vampire on True Blood, a werewolf on The Originals, Hansel (aka Jack/Nick Branson) on Once Upon a Time and now a humanized alien. While those are just a few of his characters, Parsons is happy to be transported into a “genre world” whenever he can. “I love the possibilities of [them],” he said with a smile when MediaVillage spoke exclusively with him at the Winter 2019 Television Critics Association tour. (The TCA panel for RNM is pictured below.) “I've always been too imaginative for my own good. I was one of those kids that always played make-believe, and when I was no longer a kid, I still wanted to! I've had wonderful opportunities to do that in so many capacities and explore that in so many universes. To me, that’s what it's all about, world creating and creating relationships within a world where we can explore human things on grand scales.”
