5 Minutes with Eddie via phone 2012
SBF had 5 minutes today to talk to Eddie on the phone, he's a busy guy working hard on season 2 of Hell On Wheels.
I had time for two questions;
SBF: Are you excited to be back working on Hell On Wheels?
Eddie: Very excited, the HOW cast is like a second family.
SBF: Was it a difficult decision to cut your hair?
Eddie: Yes and No. Yes, because I need to get used to having short hair. No, because this establishes my character Joseph Black Moon. The scene where I cut my hair was very important in telling who Joseph Black Moon is.
SBF: Thank you for taking the time to answer two of the fans most popular questions. We are all looking forward to watching HOW Season 2.
Eddie: Thank you for your support and for watching Hell On Wheels.
