Alfred Enoch in FAULT Magazine Issue 26

 

We’re delighted to announce that Alfred Enoch appears in an exclusive spread for FAULT Magazine Issue 26 – The Millennial Issue.

Having appeared in the Harry Potter films as a kid, Alfred made waves when he popped up – all grown up – in TV series ‘How To Get Away With Murder’. A runaway success for ABC, the show sees Alfred star opposite Viola Davis. After a wildly dramatic season for his character, we caught up to find out what’s next for the young actor…

Now that your time as Wes Gibbins on ‘How to Get Away with Murder’ has come to an end, are you going to take a break or jump straight into a new project?

I don’t like taking time off. It’s a nice thing if your job is your passion, and you’re fortunate enough to make a living from doing what you love, you just want to keep doing it. I enjoy working so I don’t want to take a vacation. Those naturally come anyway as an actor, it’s just the nature of the job, so I’m just looking to work – I don’t want to rest!

Are you going to experience a fear of missing out now that you’re no longer working on the show?

I mean, It’s sort of inherent in the work of an actor that you’ll get that. I’ll get more fear of missing out if I’m just doing
one thing for ages and then not doing other things. I was talking to someone recently who said that they were surprised that that was it, and they said it’s “only been three years” — three years is quite a long time! For me, I think that more of my fear of missing out comes from thinking about all the other jobs I’m not able to do. It was a terrific, terrific experience and I loved it, but it was good.

I think it was good for the show because it was unexpected, it opens up room for the other characters, and I get to do other things as well. It doesn’t feel like it was too soon, three years is a long time.

You’re currently in South Africa filming Troy: Fall Of A City. How are you liking playing the role of Aeneas?

This time, I know where it goes for my character. I didn’t actually study The Iliad, I studied The Aeneid, which is actually a later Roman text. It’s kind of nice to go into something and think well, at least I know my character survives!

It’s a cracking story you know, and from the perspective of a sort of slightly hyperactive
boy who always wanted to be an actor, this is one of those things you sort of dream of doing, getting to be on horseback, do sword fights, and all that stuff.

As an actor who doesn’t use social media, how do you gauge an audience’s reaction to your work?

That’s something that, for example with ‘How to Get Away with Murder’, people tell me. People are still telling me they’re excited about it, apparently it’s very big in Cape Town where I am now, so I have a lot of conversations where people express their surprise at what happened to my character.

I still have those conversations; just because I’m choosing to have those conversations personally rather than virtually doesn’t mean I’m locked in a hermetic box. There is a life outside of social media, which I’m very happy to embrace.
