“Tripp’s not necessarily eager,” says Adams. “He’s confused about all this. Again, it’s almost like it’s too good to be true for him, because of all the bad things that have happened to him during his life. He’s like, ‘Okay. You say you’re my dad, but I might need some proof on this.’ It’s more like he’s excited to go back and find out if it’s true or not. And he’s curious. Tripp is always curious.”
Let It Flow
Adams admits he was nervous his first day on the job, “because I had quite a bit to say. The night before I was running the lines like crazy. I knew had to get them down,” he explains.
But working with vets Nichols and Evans helped. “They are the nicest people and easy to work with,” shares Adams. “They mainly told me not to worry about the lines; that they would come to me when I started doing the scenes. They said, ‘Let it flow.’ It really helped me get going.”
Adams has been moving along effortlessly ever since, and so has Tripp, who viewers will learn more about as the weeks unfold. “He’s a good kid who’s had a lot of bad luck and he has a lot of bad tendencies in a way,” describes Adams, acknowledging that it’s all part of the character’s difficult past. “He grew up in rough style. His foster family wasn’t the best to him, and it really reflects in his personality.”
