Thomas also did a great interview with Nerdlocker, discussing Fear Clinic, Backstrom, Zero Times Zero and If Only I Could.

Selected parts are repeated below, see their site for the full interview.

Nerdlocker (NL): How did you get involved with this project?

Thomas Dekker (TD): My involvement with the project came about with the director, Rob Hall, and this is our third feature together. Rob and I have been friends since I was nineteen and also collaborated on video art that I have directed and he has directed. Basically, he wrote the character Blake for me, and he wanted me to be in the web series, but I was shooting something else, so I couldn’t do it. I had December free thankfully and was able to jump on board with this film.

(NL): You were in the remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street film back in 2010. Although he wasn’t in the remake, Robert Englund is obviously most famous for being Freddy Krueger. What was it like working side by side with such an iconic actor in this genre?

TD: I will tell you this, obviously, he’s legendary and known for Freddy Krueger, and I love the Nightmare on Elm Street films. The great thing about Robert is that he is a brilliantly trained, passionate and caring actor that you forget after a few minutes of talking with him, he’s Freddy Krueger. I felt like I was working with a kind and supportive actor and he is a living Wikipedia for art, music, films, actors, etc. He is all around a great person and fun to work with.

(NL): As an actor, what is your process when going into a film, especially a horror film like this?

TD: Usually, for me I spend a lot of time on that story and figuring things out for that character. But for Fear Clinic, when you have a really close working relationship with the director, you have an unspoken language. We both had a very shared perception of the Blake character and what his role was in the film. Since I know Rob, I knew the overall tone and feel of the movie. In past projects, I wrote the score, and with this project it was a collaborative process where two friends make a movie. The weirdest thing about Fear Clinic was that it was Rob’s highest budgeted movie and I am use to scrounging around to put the movie together. When we got to Ohio, we arrived to a massive set and crew that was overwhelming in a great kind of way.

(NL): You play Blake in this film and are confined in a wheelchair after a shooting, was it difficult to play a character like this?

TD: It was challenging and as an actor when you sit there, react and listen. I also love when an actor who plays an arc, where you start out one way and you end a different way was a thrilling experience. The brain damage and physicality was worked on with Rob and myself and was great to play five characters wrapped into one.

(NL): This film has a tremendous line up with Robert, Fiona Dourif, Angelina Armani and Corey Taylor from Slipknot/Stonesour. How was it filming with these actors? Did you guys have fun with the Fear Chamber when you weren’t shooting?

TD: I have known Angelina for sometime and met Robert Englund once and I knew he was a fan of my show, The Sarah Connor Chronicles and had been very complimentary of my casting in the Nightmare on Elm Street re-make. He and I had spoken about working together in the future, so that was a thrill, even though we didn’t have many scenes together. The few scenes we did have together was fun and had to play with the characters. I never met Fiona Dourif before, but we hit it off and I love that girl to death. It was a very segregated experience because I have worked with Rob so much, we had joining hotel rooms, and was very team oriented experience. But it was a typical, horror film shoot, which is why I love doing them. We were in Ohio in December freezing our asses off playing with these crazy characters and had a great time doing it. Ironically, my personal phobia is claustrophobia, so I fucking hated that chamber. That one scene where I am in the chamber was the most unpleasant scene that I shot, because you can open it up from inside, but the door was extremely heavy. So I was basically trapped in this coffin and didn’t take too kindly to that, but after a few shots of whiskey, I powered through the scene. You could see the fear in my eyes and overall it was very unpleasant.

(NL): You lived in Las Vegas. Did the Vegas lifestyle shape you personally or as an actor? I lived in Vegas for three years and was an experience to say the least.TD: It absolutely shaped me and I have been developing a screenplay for a few years called My Vegas. It’s set in Las Vegas and never stepping foot on the Strip. I think it’s a very interesting place with this small desert town surrounding this epically famous street of bad behavior. It’s the joke that how could people grow up in Vegas, but people do. I think it is a bit of growing up in a fantasyland and I also had two very eccentric parents that helped with the bizarre upbringing.

(NL): Besides acting, you are also a musician. Do you ever tour with your bands? And any new music in the works?

TD: I do and work under the name, Zero times Zero. My first album was released in 2009 under my own name and basically I started collaborating with artists of all mediums and ended up in the same tone, which is industrial dark-toned music. We have this collective project and I am in charge of the music end of it. We have a music video coming out in a couple of weeks before the record comes out and I was not involved in it. The artists from Texas [TDS: AMANDA REBHOLZ ANYONE?] threw it together and what I wanted it to be. We have a done a bunch of concerts and when this album drops and after we sign with the record label, hopefully it will grow and we can tour. The shows are harder to put on because there is a lot of multimedia, video images and electronic music. So it’s harder to coordinate compared to bands that pack up their gear and play at a bar. Until we get more recognition, we will be playing shows until there is a larger fan base.

(NL): Do you have any films or TV shows in the works for 2015?

TD: I have Backstrom on Fox and have a film premiering this Friday that I am very proud of. We showed the movie at SXSW and is called Enter the Dangerous Mind with Nikki Reed, Jason Priestly and Scott Bakula which is a dark and intense thriller based on a schizophrenic dub step musician. We finally get a theatrical run for it and highly recommend it. Last, I am directing my first budgeted feature called If Only I Could in May.

  • A review on Give Me My Remote praised Thomas for his outstanding work last night, so if you needed reasons to watch look no further: “Well, Thomas Dekker just continues to be THE.BEST. as Valentine. The scene where he discussed his experiences as a victim was breathtaking.”

Backstrom’s questionable ratings have also hiked as of last week’s episode, which were heavily promoted with Valentine as a focal point. Keep watching Valentines!

In other news I will be going in for surgery this week thus may be slow on the update front!

February 2nd, 2015   Backstrom, Videos No Comments

Two episodes of Backstrom have aired in the US to decent ratings and mixed reviews, however Thomas is captivating in his turn as Gregory Valentine, the gay criminal roommate to the titular detective. In episode 2, Thomas is allowed to shine in an exchange with the strange detective Neidemeyer (Kristopher Polaha) and it’s a great glimpse of things to come.

There’s no shortage of press for Backstrom right now, so here are selected highlights:

Give Me My Remote have posted an interview with Thomas recorded during Backstrom shooting – sometime late last year as evidenced by his being 26 years old. It’s a great little interview so check it out.

Thanks to Louise for the heads up!

 

Madison talked to Thomas about his role as Valentine and how he came about, with Thomas sharing some details on his character and the origins. Bustle also posted a cute little profile of Thomas and whilst it’s nothing you didn’t know, it’s good exposure. Also, The Press Enterprise in their review of Backstrom cited Dekker as one of their top reasons to tune in: “3. Excellent supporting cast, with a surprising turn by Thomas Dekker.”

January 23rd, 2015   Backstrom No Comments

Backstrom premieres tonight in the US, on FOX! If you’re like me and outside of the US, I’m sure the wait will be worth it…

There’s plenty of buzz surrounding Backstrom, including a few great articles with Thomas. And don’t forget to follow his twitter @thethomasdekker where he’s been on a spree…

THE BACKLOT have posted a great interview with Thomas, about his character Valentine. Read the full article and interview here.
The BackLot: Valentine is definitely an interesting creation. How did you connect with such a crazy character?

Thomas Dekker: And he gets crazier as the show progresses.

Is there some of Thomas in him?

TD: Absolutely. I would say the Thomas parts of Valentine were the parts that came into the character when I was cast, and the parts that aren’t me at all were already there. The initial writing of Valentine in the original script– though obviously a lot has changed in the show– was he was sort of in pastels and totally over the top. Kind of a pure, comedic, kind of joke character. When I read it, I read that he had been a prostitute and was a thief, and lived on the streets, and I just felt that you can’t sort of really live that lifestyle and come out on the other side without some kind of edge.

So, when I went in to audition for [Executive Producer] Hart [Hanson], I remember saying to my friend on the way out, I was like, “Well, they’re either going to love this or they’re going to hate it” because I went and did the sort of Mohawk thing and the eyeliner and I wore my own ripped up punk clothes, which all that kind of Goth punk world is something that I’m personally into. Sure enough, a couple days later Hart was like, “I don’t know what the hell that was that you came in with, but we really like it.” And so from there the character became this combination of the parts that are me, and the parts that are very not me. He certainly gets around a lot more than I do by the end of the season, I can tell you that much.

Hart told me that he told the network right off the bat that they want a guy who is sexually active, not a relationship kind of guy.

TD: I have to be honest. I was shocked a couple times with what we were allowed to get away with on a network TV show. I mean, really, even while shooting it. There’s a scene in a later episode, with a character that was in juvie together [with Valentine]. He comes back and we have this sort of physical scene and both of us were like, “really? Really? On a Fox show, really? All right.” But it’s great.

We’re at a time when a show like How to Get Away With Murder got a lot of buzz this fall because there was a lot of gay sex. And it’s a mainstream show.

TD: The thing that’s most edgy and controversial about my character in this series, if we’re kind of on that topic, it’s not like its revolutionary and sort of that they’re declaring, yes, this is an openly gay character, and yes he gets around. That’s fine because I feel that’s pretty prevalent right now in entertainment, period. But where I feel that Valentine is really special and important in that universe is that I’ve never seen a gay character quite like him. What I like is that we’re not focusing on him being a gay character. We’re focusing on this sort of oxymoronic concoction that is his personality.

Hart will tell you that… we both say that… Valentine is the toughest character on this show. He’s the scariest character. He’s the harshest character. He will kick your ass, and then on the flipside be able to be flamboyant, and funny, and quippy, and sort of whimsical. You know, like we ad-libbed this whole bit, Kris Polaha and I, about how he loves Dorothy Parker, and so it’s a really unique character, but I feel like that’s what’s exciting. We’re not pandering to any one side or the other. He’s just Valentine, which is really great to play.

Tell me about Valentine’s wardrobe in the show, which represents everything you just said about him. For all the unconventional outfits, I hear we’ll be seeing him in a tux, too!

TD: It is a shock, believe me. We see him in a cowboy outfit. We see him in a tux. We see him in a bathrobe. We see him naked. We see him in his little underground beanie and black coat and sort of covert look. I mean, that’s the other great thing about playing this part: he’s a different person based on who he’s dealing with at what given point– and what he has to get out of a situation. So that, as an actor, is so thrilling. But yes, the wardrobe, for the most part, is sort of his usual look. That was definitely our great costume designer and I working a long time on trying to find genuine, kind of real street punk, kind of cool stuff. A lot of black, a lot of gray, a lot of leather. I joke he’s like the boy with the dragon tattoo, but funny.

Would you say his clothing and his look are kind of his armor?

TD: Yes. Absolutely. It’s his armor, but I think it also represents who he is. He is tough and he is smart…I think the last thing, ironically, that Valentine would like to be thought of ever, is like a sissy. So it is his armor, but it is definitely his edge. And I think what’s really great about Backstrom and Valentine’s relationship– and Rainn and I talked about this a lot while we were shooting it– is you’ve got these two characters who are both putting on a hard edge in their own way and are actually both very vulnerable. There is an episode called “Boogeyman” and it was the turning point in the show that it’s really not a comedy episode. It’s really serious, very, very dark. So we’ll see how the audience does with that.

But for Valentine, we find out about these really horrific things that happened to him when he was on the street. And it’s crucial because Valentine’s guard completely goes. There are a few moments throughout the season where– and for Backstrom it’s the same– we’re together. It’s like we’re the only ones that we’ll allow into that realm of honesty.

Would you say that Backstrom and Valentine are more alike than maybe they’d ever want to admit?

TD: Absolutely. It’s so hard to describe. They’re the most polar opposite types of people on paper, but personality wise, deep personality wise, they’re identical, you know? And that’s what has been the joy. I mean, until the end of the season I didn’t really have a single scene with anyone but Rainn, I mean a really sort of a one-on-one scene. By the end I do get integrated with the rest [of the cast], which is great. But until then, Rainn and I always felt like we were kind of of on our own little private show. On our own little private barge, and that was a great way to work. And I love the man. We’re horrendously mean to each other, but we love each other.

Best friendships are like that, right?

TD: That’s the real friendship, the real deal. He calls me number seven, because that was my number on the call sheet. And every day on set I’ll be like, “aren’t you that guy from The Office?”

I know Valentine is not about relationships at the start, but does he have a type? What attracts him to someone else?

TD: I think he’s a lot about physicality. He also is usually most attracted to someone he thinks he could get something out of. Meaning, whether that’s money, whether that’s something that he could steal, you know? I think Valentine absolutely has a heart, very much so, but it really only comes out with Backstrom. I don’t think he allows himself to really get close to too many people.

Rainn Wilson had some lovely things to say about Thomas and his role in the show, talking to Screen Spy.

Rainn Wilson: Yes, there’s definitely something going on there. There is some juicy connection between those two; between Thomas Dekker’s character, Valentine, and Backstrom. You will definitely find that out. That’s one of the great things about what Hart has done on this show is you go on a wonderful little story arc for the first 13 episodes. You get to know Backstrom’s father [Robert Forster] you get to know his ex-fiancée, and these kind of mysteries of who he is and why he is the way he is are revealed and that’s one of the interesting mysteries of it. Thomas Dekker is truly one of the very best actors I have ever worked with in my life. He’s astonishingly good. He’s so quick and he can go from high comedy to deep tragedy on the drop of a dime and he’s just a fascinating person and he creates fascinating characters. And so it just was this rich world of this relationship between the two of them. We always knew that it was there, but it just really blossomed and grew over the episodes. So you’ll see more and more of Valentine as this series goes along.

Finally, KSiteTV posted a cool little interview with Thomas too. Read the full article here.

“Valentine is kind of an anomaly,” Dekker says of this new character he is portraying. “He lives with Backstrom and is Backstrom’s underworld connection, so he becomes integral in solving cases when they come up, just due to all his bad behavior and illicit history. He is always kind of an integral key element into Backstrom solving a case that he wouldn’t be able to do just in the police department, but that said, he’s also his friend, he’s a thief, he is a punk rocker, he is gay, he is – he’s a lot of things, and the beauty of Valentine is is that he’s a sort of a different person from moment to moment,” Dekker explains.

“Even as an actor playing him, you know I never really know quite where he’s coming from, which is really exciting for me to play with, and ultimately, his purpose is to help convey who Backstrom is, because they’re both exceptionally different people,” he continues. “You’ve got one young, gay, punk rocker, ex-prostitute, ex-drug dealer, and you’ve got another middle-aged curmudgeonly cop, but the thing they have in common is that they both have very little belief in humanity and they’re very bitter and very dark and very acerbic and very satirical people and sort of the only people that they trust in their lives are each other.”

“They’re actually both very caring people, they just can’t admit it. And the mutual issue also is that Backstrom is afraid of everything, and has to hide it. Valentine’s problem is that he’s not afraid of anything and that gets him into trouble over and over and over again,” Dekker explains.

Thomas says that his own relationship with Rainn Wilson, who plays Backstrom, is similar to the one you see on TV. “Rainn and I have formed a very strange [relationship] in a sense that it it actually is really close to Backstrom and Valentine’s relationship. We do nothing but ridicule each other and make fun of each other all day, and it’s done with the most adoration and affection,” he says, before saying some very positive things about his costar.

“He’s one of the most exceptional actors I’ve worked with, certainly in television. He has an incredible ability for improvisation. There’s no two takes [that are] the same,” Dekker says. “There’s a great ease to when he and I work together, and I know that there’s a lot of respect, mutually, from both of us to each other.”

As for the characters, Backstrom’s a heterosexual cop, and Valentine’s a gay criminal. That will inevitably lead to conflict. “There’s an episode quite early on where Backstrom basically wants to throw me out, and it’s probably a very wise decision, but on the flip side, you’ve also got a young guy who takes care of him, and a young guy who provides answers that he couldn’t get any other way,” Dekker tells us. “Everybody’s kind of got a story, which is what’s great. There’s really no just generic character to explain what’s going on. Everybody is very detailed. That’s why I love the show so much.”

I like to call the wonderful tail end of December Thomas Dekker’s Birthmas, since the 25th is Christmas and the 28th is Thomas’s birthday. It’s hard to believe that boyish, charming devil is about to be 27 but it’s true! So I thought it might be fun to try something and I really hope that it works. Efforts from Thomas such as his recent twitter feed and his 10 Days of Halloween where he showed something he truly loved to us and interacted, has hopefully eradicated anyone who thinks he doesn’t care.

I’ve said it before and I’ve said it again, Thomas Dekker is one of the most sweet, genuine, thoughtful and interested people I’ve ever met – celebrity or otherwise. Thomas does care, but he’s not like most of us, glued to our iPhones and he’s forever dashing about making things that he know we will love.

So let’s pay him back for all of the hours of joy he’s brought us through his acting, his music and work in general – and most importantly through just being a lovely, warm, inspiring person. If you’ve met him at a convention and he’s been nice to you, jump in and return that love. If he’s ever tweeted and made your day. Or if his music or his work has gotten you through a bad day.

Let’s shower Thomas with love together! And although it sounded a little wrong, I stand by it.

I WANT YOU to tweet me at @tdekkersource with your pictures. They are to be:

– fully clothed, no nudes or semi-nudes

– pictures of you, holding a sign featuring lyrics from a Thomas Dekker or Zero Times Zero song that moved you

– your twitter handle and name

– if you want to include a few small words you can, but make them brief.

You can send multiples but I will try to ensure everyone gets at least one in.

They will be combined either into a collage or a video or both, depending on the amount of entries.

And if you know Dekker fans, please urge them to get involved too. <3

Just found an interesting little quote from Shiloh Fernandez who stars in Gregg Araki’s new movie, White Bird In A Blizzard (Gregg directed Thomas in Kaboom). It’s no secret that these two are friends, or that Shiloh was involved in Thomas’s movie Whore.

JJ: At the end of your Wikipedia page, it says, “He is a friend of actor Thomas Dekker.” So random!

SH: Yeah, but it’s true! I don’t see him a lot, but he means a lot to me. We played brothers in a movie years ago. I don’t think it’ll ever come out but he directed a movie that I did that was sort of all improv. He would pick me up in the morning and say, “Well here’s what your going to do today.” And I would have to do it. He’s such an artist and a human being that transcends, sexuality is the wrong word. But there’s something about his aura that’s all-encompassing.

Anyone who knows Thomas, or has had the pleasure of meeting him, knows how captivating  and all-encompassing he is indeed!

Thomas, being his usual, Halloween-obsessed self has issued a challenge to the “10 people” he knows will actually see this video. It’s rather hilarious and a great way to start your day.

Take your pick of one of three films each day and tweet along with the hashtags provided! Today’s viewing for me was Pet Semetary from the Beat Off (yes, you read it) category.

Have fun and look out for the Thomas Dekker Source Halloween Challenge to follow for even more Dekker-related fun this Halloween!

Thomas Dekker is hot – at first, I also wondered if this was actually news – but this video has got to be seen to be believed. The YouTube clip is a parody of an existing video and showcases how incredibly (and worryingly) spot on Thomas is with impersonations and apparent bipolar disordered acting. Take a look and prepare to love!

This is the funniest thing since the series of Vine videos last year. In other news, check out these beautiful pictures tweeted by talented photographer Tyler Shields. Tyler has shot Thomas on various occasions, including for promotional shots for movie Plush, for his book, The Dirty Side of Glamour, and alongside Phoebe Tonkin.

Tyler posted this first shot and then asked who we wanted to see. I replied ‘Thomas Dekker – you’ve already made my day’ and the next one followed!

It’s Thomas Dekker Source’s 6th birthday! This site has been online in some form or another since August 2008! Time flies when you’re having fun and supporting someone truly deserving.

You may have noticed we are rocking a new theme which was built by Velvet Suite Designs and customised by myself – for the first time in the history of the site. I made the header using an amazing photograph by Amanda Rebholz – check out her site!

Without getting too sentimental I wanted to say how much I have enjoyed following Thomas’s career for as long as I can remember, somewhere back around the Honey, I Shrunk The Kids era. I started the site when Terminator first came onto our screens in the UK and stole my heart. It was a show about family first and foremost and a lonely, vulnerable boy that had the weight of knowing he would one day lead and save mankind on his shoulders. It spoke to me, for whatever reason. Since then I have loved everything that has followed, especially Kaboom, All About Evil and Squatters. I am eagerly awaiting the newest endeavours and Zero Times Zero is still on repeat in my car.

On a personal level, I feel as if running this site has broadened my horizons and made me a much braver person. In a few short years I’ve gone from a virtual recluse with social anxiety, panic attacks and severe self-consciousness to being outgoing and talkative and following my dreams. I have been inspired by meeting the lovely fans at conventions, getting up and asking questions in front of hundreds and talking to people on twitter – and most of all by Thomas himself. I cannot even begin to describe how supportive and kind he has been to me personally over the past 4 years, since we first met. Instantly, he was so generous and open. Last year in particular, seeing him for a fourth time really inspired me to come into my own and stop sitting on the sidelines; to actively seek out new opportunities and to enjoy myself without worrying what other people thought – or how I looked. I feel confident and brave and it has a lot to do with the past four years and of this inspiration.

Lava Life has given me a new mantra and a new way of seeing the world – of reminding myself that everything passes and that there is always something to be hopeful about, while Liberated has summed up everything I am thinking and feeling right now but never knew how to express. That there are challenges, obstacles and heartaches and that bad things happen, but that we are stronger for surviving these things and that they make us richer. That we must hold on through the bad to find the good. It has spoken to me on a very deep, personal level and it takes a true talent to be able to produce something that people relate to so completely.

Thomas is the ultimate example of someone who is delightfully eccentric and shares it with the world; someone who is genuinely interested in people and who can inspire others to do things they never expected to do and will actively encourage them. It’s rare and special and I have been lucky enough to experience his real kindness and sensitivity. Thomas is also honest about what he cares about and what he’s been through and that’s incredibly scary for any of us – but especially for someone with the world watching. But these things are precisely why he’s Thomas and why we love him! Anyone who has met him will agree with me I’m sure that we have a true and genuine role model, friend and talent and that we will eagerly follow wherever the future may lead.

Thank you Thomas for many wonderful years and for those still to come!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Thomas’s Cinema Verite co-star Lolita Davidovich will be guest starring on his new show Backstrom – as his mother. The show is currently shooting in Vancouver, but details for Thomas’s Gregory Valentine are few and far between.

Thomas is playing a gay former hooker currently living with Detective Backstrom (Rainn Wilson) and providing him with links to the criminal underground.

Lolita will play Gregory’s former prostitute mother who has now found God – and work as a dental hygienist.

New Shoot
Garrett Chace, a friend of Thomas’s and a very talented photographer sent details of this new photoshoot of Thomas that was taken in Hollywood this week. It’s spectacular and feels very natural for anyone who has seen TD in the flesh. Take a look at Garrett’s work here.

Squatters
I trust everyone has their copy of Squatters? It really is one of Thomas’s best works to date and there is plenty of screen time for our boy. It’s a beautifully done movie and worth checking out – you can buy it in the UK at ASDA, Play, HMV and Amazon. You can also rent it from the latter or get it on iTunes!

Thomas was tweeting live from the Fox 2014 Upfronts in New York City yesterday, where he and his colleagues were promoting their new series Backstrom. Fox announced Backstrom will air on the channel in 2015.

Just Jared Junior has posted the official trailer and beautiful new cast shots, including a bigger version of the Thomas picture we tweeted last week!

Thomas also tweeted to say he had met his idols, actresses Jessica Lange and Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story) on the red carpet for the premiere of Ryan Murphy’s The Normal Heart.

Entertainment Weekly have released the first official promotional picture for Thomas’s new tv series, Backstrom. Thomas is looking gorgeous as the gay former prostitute turned drug dealer, Gregory Valentine. It’s just a shame he’s all on his lonesome in the back!

Backstrom is currently shooting in Vancouver – though Thomas has yet to shoot his scenes – and will be on Fox later in the year. There is currently no news about who will air it in the UK, though my bet would be Sky Atlantic (former home of House) or Sky Living (former home of The Secret Circle).

May 8th, 2014   Zero Times Zero No Comments

Amazed that anyone managed to pin the busy Mr. Dekker down, but there’s a great little interview with Upstate Live where he discusses Zero Times Zero! Read the full article at their site.

Who is part of Zero Times Zero?

Thomas Dekker: Well now, that is quite a question to start out with. I completely understand why you’d ask it but I also hope you understand why I can’t answer it. Not by providing all names involved at least. The idea behind Zero Times Zero was to create a nameless, faceless force in modern Pop Culture. Quite an impossible thing to do in this day and age I suppose. As a solo artist under my own name, I felt that the public knowledge of my other career was a detriment to the music. And simultaneously, what I wanted to explore in music was a detriment to what was expected of me in said other career. We are not a “band” in the normal sense of the word. We’re trying to recreate the Andy Warhol factory in many ways here. To be creators of not just music but video, performance and photographic art with one concise and focused outlook between us. So this includes actors, film makers, musicians, dancers, etc. However, I will say, the music department is spearh
eaded by myself.

When did Zero Times Zero begin?

TD: I had been discussing with many friends and collaborators, all of whom perform on this new record including Reza Safinia, Ian Krupp, Kristofer Holst, Etc. what a liberating experience it would be to try and champion the unknown. Or to put it in a less hippie dippy sense: to have the ability to experiment and feel out ideas amidst the freedom of anonymity. We were all coming from different backgrounds and artistic interests but found that we shared a common outlook on greed, hope, Armageddon, religion, sexual revolution, anger, pain, madness, science and methodology. And all could be reflected in simple pop song lyrics but then dissected into deeper meaning within the construct of the project. The name of the group was chosen and the project launched in 2012 I believe. We’ve made two albums, “= 0? and the current one “Love and Razorblades”.

What genre would you describe Zero Times Zero?

TD: Obviously being a large group full of diverse ideas and inspiration, the music in particular tends to jump from genre to genre a bit. But ultimately we would say “Industrial”. Hard core synths and beats matched with orchestral influence. Dramatic, bold, tough. We want to share opinions and not share them quietly. As the leader of the music, I’ve always been happiest working on the technical side of production and electronic intricacy. It’s a process that becomes deeply personal. Probably much more than people would expect from non traditional singer/songwriters.

Is Zero Times Zero signed to a record company?

TD: We are in negotiations with “Cutting Edge”.

What are some of the musical influences for Zero Times Zero?

TD: Musically, we would all agree: Nine Inch Nails, Gary Numan, Bjork, Depeche Mode, Pet Shop Boys, Glitch Mob, David Bowie, Rob Zombie, BT, Goldfrapp, Marilyn Manson. And those are just the modern influences, let alone all the classical that comes into play. But we are equally inspired by photographs and films. Gregory Crewdson’s photography book “Twilight” is a massive inspiration when it comes to the stories we want to tell, both with music and performance art. The early films of Ingmar Bergman helped govern our decisions with the new record too. I’ve always found a strange correlation between the muted desperation of those kind of works and the deafening scream of metal, electronica and experimental rock.

The single Liar was just released, should we expect a new single or a music video for it?

TD: “Liar” is the opening track of the record. We felt it really set the tone so we wanted it to be the appetizer. However, an official music video is not planned for that track yet. YET. The first official music video will be for the eighth track on the album entitled “Superstitions” which I will direct. It’s the story of a club kid running from a ghost who’s dredging up the kid’s self-imposed abuse and memories. Sadly, the ghost is the kid’s dying future self. Think “Party Monster” meets “A Christmas Carol”.

Any plans on taking the music to the road?

TD: We would love to tour! I think we’ve all been a bit overwhelmed by the size of the project we have taken on. Meaning, this is not the kind of music or performance you can put on properly with a few band mates in a small bar. We have video projections, choreographers, programmers, engineers, costumes, interactive experiments. We need the proper funding and interest to really give audiences the hell of a show we have always intended. However, we are so confident in this new album and feel it’s something so special. We believe all of the above will be made possible sooner rather than later.

When will the new album be expected to come out?

TD: We are planning the release date of the full album within the next two to three months. But we will be releasing videos, art installations and leaked tracks in the interim to get those who want us to want us!

The year long wait is over! In case you missed the flurry of twitter activity this morning or the barrages of song lyrics, Zero Times Zero have officially released their first album!

buying-1024x578

The highly anticipated album from art collective Zero Times Zero, the brainchild of the deliciously eccentric Thomas Dekker does not disappoint with a catchy, love at first listen offering. With a genre defying mix of electronica, pop, rock and metal it’s undeniably brilliant with quirky lyrics and an addictive sound. Opening track ‘Dead’ hooks the listener in, while tracks like ‘Not Forgiven’ stuns with guitar and the Depeche Mode-esque ‘Rock and Roll’ peels back yet more layers. The standout track, the uplifting ‘Liberated’ laments the bitch of time while bursting with positivity. ‘Stupid Whore’ is a full throttle eye-witness account of the life of a Hollywood starlet and ‘Peaches and Coco’ oozes with sexual energy. ‘The First Love Song’ is a beautifully tragic, emotionally raw admission of love lost and as the album draws to a close, Thomas proves why he’s ‘My Favourite Vice’, contemplates his existence after going to hell and back in the angst-ridden, reflective ‘All These Things’ and brings the album to a climax with the anthemic ‘Rage On’. Well boys, you claim “you never did love me,” but your audience surely does. My, my, Zero Times Zero is here to stay.

April 30th, 2014   White City 1 Comment

The lovely people behind Thomas’s new movie The White City have been kind enough to share some incredible stills. While the official site is currently just a static page, keep checking back for more content…

I don’t know about you guys but I am psyched about this movie! It co-stars Haley Bennett who Thomas has been friends with since he was a teenager – and who played his ‘vageterian’ best friend Stella in Kaboom! It also stars Bob Morley from The CW’s The 100.

Last time we met, Thomas told TDS: “The White City with Haley Bennett from Kaboom. It’s about three young artists in a love triangle. Haley and I are together, she’s a hopeful writer I’m a hopeful film maker and we go to Tel Aviv to be inspired. We meet a guy just out of the army, Haley falls for him and I become artistically obsessed with him. It shakes our relationship and there’s a seed of political threat.”

After a long and torturous wait, Thomas’s musical project Zero Times Zero have released their debut single ‘Liar’ from the album ‘Love and Razorblades’. This was previously intended as their second release, however it is slated for this year.

It is nothing less than we would expect from the creative and eccentric Mr. Dekker – best comparable to idol Daniel Johns – and co. and does not disappoint after almost a year since the band’s UK debut at Inva3ion.

Please be warned there are a lot of flashing images in this video.

January 15th, 2014   Backstrom Comments Off on Thomas Regular Star on Fox’s ‘Backstrom’

It has been announced today that Thomas is now a series regular for Backstrom, which is excellent news.

Previously, Dekker told Thomas Dekker Source that he wanted recurring status due to less conctractual obligations including moving, as he did for The Secret Circle, thus negotiations must have proved fruitful.

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles alum Thomas Dekker is returning to Backstrom, this time as a series regular.

 thomas-dekker-joins-plush-exclusive

The actor has closed a new deal to reprise his formerly guest-starring role as Gregory Valentine, a whip-smart young gay man, in the new Fox series, He’s an ex-hustler-turned-entrepreneurial crook who is Backstrom’s (Rainn Wilson) tenant and uses Backstrom’s apartment to store his high-end ill-gotten goods. Backstrom’s decorator and underworld connection, he’s a colorful character who has a genuine fondness for the abrasive cop — and vice versa.

January 8th, 2014   Backstrom Comments Off on BACKSTROM ORDERED TO SERIES!

The pilot that Thomas filmed last year, which was initially passed up, has been ordered to 13 episode series! The show stars Rainn Wilson (The Office) as Detective Backstrom and is to air on FOX. Read the full article on The Hollywood Reporter.

Thomas is under recurring status contract and as he explained it, would appear in the majority if not all episodes if picked up to series. The recurring status however allows certain perks and freedoms regular contracts do not.

Thomas’s character is a criminal neighbour and friend of Backstrom’s.

Congratulations Thomas, we can’t wait to have you back on our screens!

“The Secret Circle” star Thomas Dekker is making his next TV move — right on over to CBS’s “Backstrom” pilot, from “Bones” boss Hart Hanson. “Backstrom,” based on a popular Swedish book series, is about a detective with a short temper who is often hindered by his own self-destructive behavior. Early buzz says that Backstrom (Rainn Wilson) is the Gregory House of the crime genre. Dekker is set to guest star as Valentine, an entrepreneurial crook who uses Backstrom’s apartment to store his high-end ill-gotten goods. He also serves as Backstrom’s decorator… and connection to the criminal underbelly…

November 30th, 2013   Fear Clinic Comments Off on Thomas Checks Into Fear Clinic

Thomas is checking into Fear Clinic which has officially begun production this week! The feature is based on Robert Englund’s series of the same name and Thomas is set to star as one of the patients checking in. Fear Clinic will be released in October 2014.

Bloody Disgusting reports:

Almost Human Effects founder and director Robert Hall will start shooting Fear Clinic next month after a successful crowdfunding campaign. We’ve known for a while that Robert Englund will star in the film (reprising his role of Dr. Andover from the series).Fiona Dourif (pictured above; Curse Of Chucky) will be appearing alongside Thomas Dekker (“The Sarah Connor Chronicles”). Cleopatra Coleman (Step Up: Revolution, Silversun) is also joining the cast. The screenplay was written by Aaron Drane and Hall, and is produced my Mark B Johnson.

The film, “opens with a tragedy that launches five people into the public eye and enlists Dr. Andover to lend his expertise to help them overcome trauma-induced phobias. A year later, terrifying ‘aftershocks’ rattle the survivors, leading to them finding their way back to the fear clinic seeking answers. As they line up for another turn in the chamber, Dr. Andover believes that something more sinister may be at work.

Dread Central has posted an even more detailed explanation of the movie:

In 2009 FearNet launched “Fear Clinic,” a horror series starring Robert Englund as Dr. Andover, a fear doctor who induces hallucinations in patients dealing with crippling phobias using his “Fear Chamber.” The series consisted of a mere five episodes, but now writer/director Robert Hall and writer Aaron Drane are bringing it to the big screen with a new crop of subjects.

…Dekker will play Blake Patton, a disabled man who survives a terrible tragedy and is subsequently brought to the clinic…

Speaking of the film, Robert Hall said, “This is a whole different playing field. My new film has a much darker and surreal tone than the episodes, and I think fans will really appreciate the direction we’re going in.” Regarding the cast, he adds, “I’m terribly excited to get to collaborate with Fiona Dourif, who blows me away with her talent, and of course Thomas Dekker gets the best out of me when we’re on set and vice versa.

The film opens with a tragedy that launches five people into the public eye. Dr. Andover is enlisted to lend his expertise to help them overcome trauma-induced phobias. A year later terrifying ‘aftershocks’ rattle the survivors, leading to them to find their way back to the fear clinic seeking answers. As they line up for another turn in the chamber, Dr. Andover believes that something more sinister may be at work.

FYI: I’ve just started my Masters in Health Psychology, so updates may be a little on the low side for the next few weeks – though there hasn’t been much news lately!

July 9th, 2013   Music, Uncategorized Comments Off on When Thomas Invaded Part 4: Music Exclusives!

 

 sarahthomassmall2 sarahthomassmall1

Finally, the When Thomas Invaded series continues with the last installment! This last post is dedicated to the most exciting aspect of discussion at Inva3ion – Thomas’s music!

Shirley Manson
When I asked about a tweet he’d sent me previously regarding a duet with Shirley Manson, Thomas explained “I’m desperately trying to get Shirley Manson to sing on one of the tracks. It’s a duet for a male and a female but I want us to sing opposite parts because she’s a bigger man than I am! But she’s been on tour so scheduling was tricky.”

The Vine Videos
The Vine Videos were represented on my shirts all weekend and Thomas was a little embarrassed by the hilarious shorts. “We made those in Vancouver. After we’d been to Eleventeen bars, Matt McInnis told me about Vine and we were messing around. He asked me ‘are you sure you want me to post this?’ and I said ‘yeah, it’s fine’ and the next morning was like ‘fuck!’.”

Zero Times Zero
On the subject of music, Thomas had rather a lot to share, including the World Premiere of 7 one-minute promotional videos and a track at Saturday’s disco from Zero Times Zero, all of which were mindblowing! Thomas describes Zero Times Zero as “an art conglomerate, it’s not a band and it’s not a solo artist. The first record is finished, titled Equals Zero and it’s out this year. We’re already 7 tracks into the next album. It involves video, art, photography, fashion, trying to make a statement. Artistic ventures.” Thomas wants it to be like an underground cult and the marketing campaign keeps that in mind. “The title is Equals Zero. It will be released deviously, like some crazy cult. You may find a DVD in a club bathroom.”

Influences that Thomas lists include “80s industrial and classical music. Gardiner, Chopan. Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, The Cure, Lamb, Bjork and film scores.” His favourite soundtrack? “Blade Runner. Carrie. Black Swan. Trent Reznor.” He also shared “Pretty Hate Machine is one of my favourites of all time.” His music, a fan noted, sounds 80’s inspired. “Yes. It was written in Chicago filming Nightmare on Elm Street, in the hotel. I wanted it to sound 80’s made. I put it away for a while and then decided to make it sound of today but with an 80’s spirit. Electronic instruments used melodically inspired me, I think I should have lived in the 80’s.”

On Saturday night at the Disco, Thomas appeared in the main hall and got up on stage to introduce a World Premiere of one of Zero Times Zero’s new songs. There was much dancing and much applause – and a very relieved seeming Dekker who admitted to me after, he was very excited and hoped that everyone had liked it. Yes, I assured him, we fucking loved it!

At Thomas’s Q&A on Sunday, he once again proved his love for the UK by treating us to another World First – the premiere of not one but seven sixty second promotional videos for Zero Times Zero’s upcoming album. Thomas took the stage and exclaimed: “I just did this! It’s like it’s all happening again! Is everyone having fun? I saw you all cutting the rug! I thought it was like a little dinner dance that they put on, but it was like Ibiza in here! Questions first, then I’ll premiere stuff that nobody in the world has seen!”

“7 x 1 minute videos remixed to sound even more confusing and bizarre.” There was absolute silence in the room as Thomas introduced the videos with a warning for flash photography – and the actor looked nervous as they played. There was a brief pause between each video but the room was too hooked to make a noise, until finally, the lights came back on and applause broke out. Afterwards, he grinned, “that’s totally normal, yeah? There you have it. That was nerve wracking! A lot of frightened faces.” Fans were quick to praise the videos, interested not only in the music but the ideas behind the videos. Did Thomas direct those? “Yes, directed and edited. Rob Hall did the effects for all of them for free, he did effects on Sarah Connor. $150,000 dollars worth. We melted a head, which is expensive!” Thomas also wore a rubber suit for one, while directing. The videos were inspired by self-abuse and vices, the ridiculousness of celebrities and Hollywood. “My crazy crackpot brain!” The videos feature many of Thomas’s friends, one of whom was quite unsuspecting. “It was all shot in Super 8, 16mm VHS. Quite a challenge to edit on a tape.”

Thomas was asked about a follow-up to Psyanotic? “No, this is the follow-up. I was speaking about this project. The whole secret is not to declare who’s working on it. It could be 50 people it could be 3, but it’s still my brain child. [Psyanotic] did me a disservice really, as people related it to my acting. The reviews said ‘this kid is supposed to save the world, really?’ My music is not very conducive with being semi-known. Lots of actors get a bad wrap because they do shit music. Mine is experimental, a different sound. I read a lot of comments about ‘this guy’s going to save the world?’ John Connor was not helping with my music. Cool people like you will know it’s me, but not under my own name for those reasons.”

Is a UK tour likely to happen? “Yes. We’re going to do Los Angeles and New York and we’ll figure out the rest. The music fits Europe more than the US. A lot of Germans seem to like it.”

When asked what inspires the music, Thomas took a tangent. “Who heard the track that I played last night? Thank you for dancing! … It’s a strange process, I know what the sound and tone is before I know what the lyrics will be. I finish everything musical first and then, not to sound like a hippie, but I let the words come to me. This new one is about the last two years of my life, relationships that have flourished and relationships that have broken. The videos today are things I want to hear, play with, ask and sing about.”

Exciting things to come from Thomas and Zero Times Zero!

July 1st, 2013   Publicity, Uncategorized No Comments

 sarahthomassmall2 sarahthomassmall1

Finally, the When Thomas Invaded series continues with the penultimate installment! This time, there are the notes on acting and dream roles…

Dream Roles
If afforded the opportunity to pick any role from television and film, Thomas said that he would pick Ripley in Alien as she is “strong, tough, not afraid to cry and be vulnerable. It’s hard to find that duality in a young male character. They always want you to be unshakeable which is boring for an actor.” As for current TV shows, he shared that he’d love to be in “series 3 of The Killing and would give a finger to be on American Horror Story and I live tweet while watching. I would do Twin Peaks for free! And my new TV show.”

When I asked which book he would like to adapt and star in, Thomas was certain. “Ooh that might be 2 different things. I’m a bit of a book nerd. There’s one book I’m desperately trying to get the rights to and I’m in a bidding war. It’s a Stephen King, one of the few that haven’t been snatched up, called Gerald’s Game. It’s an incredibly claustrophobic book. A couple go to a cabin in the woods to rekindle their romance, the guy handcuffs his wife to the bed and then he has a heart attack. The woman is stuck in the cabin going slowly insane. I want Lena Headey to play that woman.”

If the Twin Peaks revival happened, who would you play, asked one fan. “I’d do anything…craft services, driver, extra, I don’t give a shit! A weird, peripheral character that sticks in your brain.” And who would play Thomas in a movie of his life, asked another? “I don’t know. You broke my trajectory! Chris Farley if he was still around.”

Acting

A fan asked how much of his own personality is brought into his roles, to which Thomas said: “I’ve played close to me and the polar opposite and I’m not sure which I like better. I try to invent the voice, the walk, mannerisms to build a rounded character. I try not to repeat myself. In John there is a lot of me, a lot of the good stuff. But all my weaknesses and shortcomings, hopefully not. Cinema Verite was not like me. I try to find common ground and mutual understanding.”

When asked about being a child actor, Thomas had a lot to say. “I had an accidental start and I didn’t have pushy parents. My parents came from a musical, singing background. They asked if I enjoyed it – if not, we’ll stop. I am grateful for 20 years of experience and connections and knowledge. I went to school until 4th grade then I was set taught. I had a 10 hour day on set which included 3 hours of school. 30 minutes of acting and blocking and whatnot and school in 20 minute blocks. I was just going along for the ride until about 17. Then I had a crisis of faith and was a week away from quitting. I had an application in at Amoeba Records for a job as a clerk. Then I met my Manager and she showed me that I can do this. Then I landed Heroes.”

Does Thomas research roles, I asked? “I discuss with the director and producer. For example for the homeless person; who is he and how did he get there? Venice Beach, filming, people thought I was homeless. I got kicked out of a restaurant because of the way I looked … for the drug addict roles, obviously not…my drug of choice is Twin Peaks.” As for novels such as Angels Crest and The Secret Circle, the answer is different. “I didn’t read The Secret Circle. I don’t read the books, I want it to be my interpretation.”

Another fan asked how Thomas prepared for Angels Crest.  Thomas admitted he’s extremely proud of the movie and went on to explain the plot, before joking “…so it’s a comedy! It was a really intense experience. I had a hard time shaking off the feeling of it. It was freezing cold in Calgary. I spent two weeks with the boy and his Mom. She was a single mother and he put me in the Dad role. We shot the scenes where he’s alive first and then get into the grief. It was surprisingly easy to slide into it but really hard to snap out of it.”

Thomas also had a cute story to share about Eko, the little boy playing his son in the movie. “I tried to hide my smoking from him; I kept going out to use the bathroom or go outside, to smoke. But one day he looked at me and asked “you going to smoke?” I guess he figured it out. Kids are smart. I guess my Grandma probably has too.”

Thomas said that his proudest works were “Terminator is my top achievement. Angels Crest, or Abandonned in the UK. Kaboom. And Squatters.” Meanwhile the most difficult scene to film recently? “Physically, hanging upside down for 10 hours on The Good Lie, crying and screaming.” Thomas noted that he also did that in Nightmare On Elm Street and they told him not to scream and cry so much, as for some reason the guys in horror movies are not allowed to show fear, but you would. “Not that fun. Emotionally, still Angels Crest.”

And the strangest thing he’s had to do? “Pull a chip out of Summer Glau’s head is one of them! Challenging. I hadn’t done any nudity or sex scenes and Kaboom opens with me full frontal and I pretty much have sex with everyone. And Honey I Shrunk The Kids…what were the writers thinking? Insane.”

Asked what his preference is, Thomas is unsure. “It’s difficult, I started at 5 years old so I don’t have any memories before acting. I didn’t have pushy parents, I just wanted to do it. I don’t know how not to do it. Music was a conscious decision in my mid-teens. Directing I knew I wanted to do when I worked with John Carpenter in Village of the Damned. If I fail at that, I’d love to do editing because I love it. [Jokes] or Homeless, I hear that’s fun.”

As for theatre, he has expressed fear previously of stage work but joined Second City for a one-night performance. “Second City is a comedy group on stage. We sat around coming up with skits that made each other laugh. Acting on stage is scary. On TV, you have the blessing of the camera. If I did theatre, I’d start with a play, not a musical.” He noted that he’s never had an acting lesson. Would he ever consider stand-up? There were rumours. “Yes, love stand up. It’s scary enough with you guys, who are my friends and a nice audience. I want to do it because it’s so scary, but I’m too scared to do it.” If forced to choose between music, acting and everything else? “I’d have to pick whichever one I could ensure I’d always be successful in. Probably music as I only have to rely on myself and a lot of electronic equipment.”

The Secret Circle

“When the show began, Adam was the moral pillar of the circle, he was a good strong guy. The plan was midway to have something happen to him to make him bad. Boy was I pissed off when it didn’t happen, but at least I got to play a ghost in church. There was a lot of creative friction so another story usurped that. He was supposed to become mad with power and turn into the villain for the start of the second season. Diana would leave and be called back. I would have been excited to see dark Adam befriending Jake to manipulate him – and through him, Cassie.”

Monica asked about his impressions on the set of The Secret Circle. “My thing was to do impressions. Shelley had only done soap operas for four years. She got it after a couple of episodes but on the pilot she was confused about the close-ups and where the camera was. [Impression]. Phoebe lives on kale and air and is always on her iPad [impression]. Britt’s always walking her fucking dogs! And only drinks soda. So if I had a soda, I’d be Britt. Chris just looked sad and confused. And Jess was always studying her lines. It was fun. I learned all the lines of the pilot for fun.”

Getting ready for work in the mornings however, was not so enjoyable for Thomas. “I spent a lot of time in long sleeves. It took three hours to cover them, so if we had a 6am call it became a 3am call. I don’t feel bad for myself, because I love them, but I do feel bad for the make-up artist sitting there with an airbrush gun thinking ‘why do actors get tattoos?’ I could feel the rage coming out of her.”

Honey, I Shrunk The Kids
“I’m still strangely connected. My Mom in the show is my Mom’s best friend. My Mom is the acting coach and on-set handler of her daughters and I’m godfather to one. It was odd. I was strange and quiet as a kid. I think some of the stuff I did on that set is pretty horrific.”

June 28th, 2013   snap No Comments

UK Dekker fans, here’s your chance to see Snap! There is currently no word on special guests for this event, however celebrity guests will be announced soon!

Snap is part of Film 4’s annual Frightfest at Leicester Square.

“A psychological thriller that plays like a dub-step song on celluloid, SNAP will shred the nerves and rattle the demons of the mind as it charts the unhinging of a damaged brain. Abrasive, with hard cuts and loud imagery, the focus is on Jim Whitman, a painfully shy, socially awkward, musically talented savant whose work has made him a social networking star. But Jim consistently traverses an introverted life, trying to contain the schizophrenic darkness inside him. Struggling to keep his Mr Hyde-like personality in check, he befriends, and eventually obsesses over, Wendy, a caring social worker with problems of her own. Forced to seek out the counsel of her own mentor, together they attempt to unravel the secrets of Jim’s inner torment before it spirals out of control. A dark and terrifying journey into the psychopathic vortex, how do you stop a human time bomb from exploding”.

UK Premiere. Directors: Youssef Delara & Victor Teran. Cast: Jake Hoffman, Nikki Reed, Scott Bakula, Thomas Dekker, Jason Priestley. USA, 2013. 90 min.

Thomas attended Starfury Events convention Inva3ion on the 3rd-5th May 2013 along with guests from genre shows including Torchwood and Dollhouse. This was his fourth consecutive appearance in the UK and his third to Starfury and the fourth time for many of us meeting him too! Thomas was his usual charming self and gained some new admirers, as well as catching up with some familiar faces.

If you have any photographs from the event that you would care to share, or anything about your experience with Thomas then send it in! You will be credited for anything that is used here.

Again, apologies to Thomas is any of this is misquoted – it’s difficult to note-take by hand!

Notes on a Convention…pt 2

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
When speaking about Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, he said that “We were going to try for a movie. Bryan and the producers were trying. So much time has gone by now though that I doubt it will happen. I could do it as a one man play! I’ll play all of the characters. Oh, I suppose I ought to give this Lena Headey person a chance…” He also said that the series would have continued with a “weird love triangle between John, Allison and Cameron, which for John was kind of awesome and a dream for a lot of people. Weaver’s daughter Savannah would have been a key resistance fighter. It would look at how John becomes the hero, how he gets there. It’s a bummer because he’s in the future at the end and nobody knows who he is. So what happens?”

Asked for stories from the set, Thomas said “I’ve probably exhausted my good Terminator stories, but Lena and I find good videos on YouTube and send them to each other. There’s these ones where the dialogue is beeped so it sounds rude. On the Secret Circle all 6 of us bonded and laughed a lot. I got one of the crew to reach into the hiding place for the journal and stick out the hand when Cassie was opening it up. Also, you can’t smoke in trailers and the production office printed out a fake fine invoice for 2,000 for smoking in the trailer – and I fell for it. And Phoebe really wanted to go home to Australia, so I told her we were all going home and she had to stay for more filming.”

So has Thomas met other John Connors? “I Met Nick Stahl at a party but we didn’t really get to talk, I haven’t met Christian Bale and never met the foetus from the first one. Edward Furlong, I should have met him because a very dear friend of mine went out with him for years, but she doesn’t now.”

The fruit cart incident was one of the most amusing stories of the weekend, which resulted in Lena and Thomas laughing on film during their escape in ‘Samson and Delilah’ – a very serious moment. “Some poor tired guy is supposed to be pulling some cart of fruit. You can see Lena and I laughing as we run out of the church. In the script, I’m supposed to run down the stairs and trip over the fruit cart. Stairs as big as this room and one little cart! I called Josh and told him it was ridiculous and he came down and agreed. I was like ‘really? The future saviour of mankind can’t dodge a fruit cart?’ so they found another way to injure me.” Thomas added that Summer once fell silent for fifteen minutes in an interview and suddenly chimed in “I love firemen!” And that “there were a lot of incest jokes…the whole family is having sex with each other.” Other pranks included giving the guest directors a hard time, messing up on purpose and pretending to be bad actors and playing head butt with a felt cap on, catching the ball.

For the record, Thomas also does a fantastic impression of a cat vomiting, which he insists is very accurate due to observation of his own two cats. And, as I pointed out later, Summer’s comment about firemen was featured on the Samson and Delilah DVD commentary where there are, yes, firefighters. To which Thomas told me, “wow, you really know your shit!”.

“Technology hates me because of that role, I was convinced. My computer broke, everything broke,” Thomas mused.

Random Facts

When asked which DC or Marvel hero or villain he’d like to play, Thomas had a few ideas. “I always want to play the villain. In Batman, the Joker…but not after Heath’s performance, nobody could top that. I’d like to play Maleficent in Sleeping Beauty because she’s such a bitch!”

And who would Thomas stand in line for? Which show or movie would make him geek out? “I went to Comic Con for the first time, for Terminator. I’m a big nerd and bought a Crypt Keeper head and a Chucky doll. I want to go to the Twin Peaks experience in Washington, everyone dresses up and they take you to the locations. I want to do it. Probably me and six other people.”

While most fans are harmless, or at least the ones at Inva3ion were, Thomas has had some interesting encounters over the years. The weirdest? “Boy that’s a doozy! The freakiest fan moment was when I was about 8 years old and we kept getting sent from some group of fans in Texas, long detailed letters asking for cuttings of hair, nails and eyelashes so that they could genetically clone me. My Mom still has them. She still has my school report on the wall that says “Thomas is an excellent student on the rare occasions when he visits planet Earth.” There were some even more sinister fans however. “On MySpace, do you remember when we used to rub sticks together to make fire? This guy messaged me every other day, then every day, then two or three times a day, all the time becoming more aggressive and saying he had a question. Finally I gave in, opened wine with friends and looked at the message. His question was ‘in episode 2.13 of Honey I Shrunk The Kids, your sister gives you a wedgie, what was that like and how did it feel?’ I clicked on his site and he had like 48 pictures of little boys getting wedgies, let’s hope he’s in prison.”

Thomas may be close to co-star Lena Headey, but he hasn’t yet seen Game of Thrones. “I have to be honest and she and I laugh about this – but I can’t watch one episode because I won’t get anything else done. So, not yet. Don’t throw tomatoes! My friend sent me the…I watched her in the Power is Power scene and I had a little bit of an erection. And she played my Mom, so that’s…[pulls face]. Lena is golden and I love everything she does!”

And those horror movies? Which characters speak to him the most? “Oh my god…Carrie in the original. It’s the only story where the villain is the victim of everyone else’s cruelty. Michael Myers, Freddie Krueger – not in the one that I did but the originals – and Norman Bates. I’m watching the Bates Motel, tiding me over until American Horror returns. Jessica Lange is up there.”

When he’s not watching American Horror, Thomas admits to being a fan of Parks and Recreation, Absolutely Fabulous, French and Saunders, Nighty Night and South Park and The Shining never fails to cheer him up. Thomas is also named on the latest Lamb album as part of the cover image, since he pre-ordered and helped fund the album.

It sure is nice to know that he’s a super fan too.

Thomas attended Starfury Events convention Inva3ion on the 3rd-5th May 2013 along with guests from genre shows including Torchwood and Dollhouse. This was his fourth consecutive appearance in the UK and his third to Starfury and the fourth time for many of us meeting him too! Thomas was his usual charming self and gained some new admirers, as well as catching up with some familiar faces.

Notes on a Convention…

Throughout the weekend, we learned a great deal about Thomas and his upcoming projects, so this report contains the general highlights as well as some personal notes and observations! For ease of reading I’ve lumped it all together into specific categories, for example Terminator comments and questions. Apologies for any misquotes Thomas, but shorthand is not the easiest form of recording (but the only one allowed by Starfury). There are more posts to follow in the days to come!

About the UK
Thomas shared that he regards the UK as his “second home” and spent Christmas in Wales with his family. There was lots of “drama and drinking” but it was a fun Christmas and he was wearing the I Love The ‘Diff hoodie his Uncle Nigel bought him.

So would Thomas consider filming in UK? “Oh my god yes, I’d love to. I love the UK and Wales, it’s my second home! It’d be a dream. I spent Christmas in Wales. Lots of drama and lots of drinking with my crazy family. Up to last year I’d never shot outside of the USA and Canada. Now I’ve filmed in Sweden and Israel.” But his favourite filming location is still Montreal.

Upcoming Projects
“Snap with Nikki Reed and Jake Hoffman…I play a beach rat in Venice Beach in Squatters…Catherine Hardwicke’s movie Plush as a goth rocker…and Transference. And the pilot of Backstrom as a male version of The Girl With The Dragon Tatoo. And The White City, filmed in Tel Aviv, but THIS convention is more fun!”

The Good Lie? “It’s in Toronto and Montreal from May 3rd. It’s going to Cannes to try and get UK and European distribution. I play a comfy suburbanite kid whose mother dies in a car accident. Six months later he finds a video that tells him his father is not his real father and his biological father raped his mother. He goes off on a quest to find his father. It’s an exciting movie, I’m very proud of it. So look out for that.”

“The pilot I’ve just filmed, Backstrom. We should find out next week if it’s picked up, but I’m confident it will be. It’s based on Swedish crime novels and I play the male equivalent of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.” When I asked for clarification about his guest star status, he explained “I’m a guest star but will be in every episode, because I didn’t want to move again and being a guest means I don’t have to buy a house and a car there and move my life again.”

“Also The White City with Haley Bennett from Kaboom. It’s about three young artists in a love triangle. Haley and I are together, she’s a hopeful writer I’m a hopeful film maker and we go to Tel Aviv to be inspired. We meet a guy just out of the army, Haley falls for him and I become artistically obsessed with him. It shakes our relationship and there’s a seed of political threat. There’s also The Pretenders.”

“Transference was a short film, four days in New York and a week in Sweden. I told him it was going to be too long to be a short and he wrote in a new aspect, and he got a lot more money and now it’s a feature. It’s about relationships and how they might mean more to you than they did to the other person. Obsessing. Beautifully shot, beautiful to look at…minus my face,” he joked.

Walk of Fame
Thomas sighed as I asked him about Walk of Fame, the movie that has been in development for some time and will mark Thomas’s feature film making debut. “It was getting off the ground with finances and then The Secret Circle came so it got put on the back burner. Then I did back to back movies. Nikki Reed from Snap is going to play one of the girls and co-produce. It’s going to cost $1 million for a 23 day shoot. It feels like climbing a mountain.”

Still to come; Terminator, The Secret Circle, Honey I Shrunk The Kids and lots of Zero Times Zero…as well as more personal reports! With thanks to Jan for help with note-taking.

…But in a chat the other day at an Old Montreal hotel, Winnipeg writer-director Shawn Linden and Las Vegas-born, Los Angeles-based actor Thomas Dekker seemed 100-per-cent genuine when talking about their passion for Montreal. They were here in the summer of 2011 shooting the Montreal-produced indie flick The Good Lie, a smart, twist-laden thriller that opens on Friday. It’s produced by Kim Berlin and Susan Schneir, the duo behind writer-director Deborah Chow’s acclaimed The High Cost of Living.

… “It’s my favourite city,” echoed Dekker, putting even more emphasis on “favourite.”

“I love being surrounded by French,” said Dekker, who is best known for playing John Connor in the TV series Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

Linden and Dekker, like most everyone else who visits our fine city, also really dug the town’s eateries.

Dekker says Matt Craven, who plays his father in the movie, went to Garde Manger in Old Montreal nearly every night.

“And I love the architecture here. And it’s rare when you make a film that you end up making friends with people who have nothing to do with the film,” said Dekker. “I don’t know how it happened, but I met a lot of local young people. And I really liked the music here.”

“It has this core story that’s very sober and very honest, and then it’s surrounded by these vignettes that are ridiculous and fantastical and funny,” said Dekker. “I felt it was very precisely constructed. But it allowed you to go on a very dark journey while still having a film that’s very entertaining.”

Dekker has starred in major studio productions like the Terminator TV series, but says he had no hesitation about agreeing to act in a low-budget Canadian independent picture.

“I really just look at what is good and what interests me,” said Dekker. “It’s actually the reverse for me. I’ll say, ‘OK. I’ll have to take something I’m not excited about because it pays well.’ The projects I get excited about, it doesn’t matter what country they’re made in or what I’m getting paid. My favourite work of mine is almost all small movies that didn’t pay the rent and I didn’t care. That’s the life of an actor — the job you have to take versus the job you want to take.”

Dekker just shot a high-profile pilot for CBS, Backstrom, produced by the creators of Bones and based on a series of Swedish crime novels.

“It’s very smart,” said Dekker. “’That would be a job that pays the bills and is enjoyable.”

The Not-So-Good Lie? Thomas won praise for his role as Cullen in ‘The Good Lie’ but the review of the film was less favourable from Now Magazine. Read the full article at source.

This drama about teenager Cullen’s (Thomas Dekker) quest for his birth father, who raped his mother, has some admirable qualities.

Dekker’s excellent as the angry young man willing to take risks in the search for his prey, the dialogue between him and his pals is edgy and real, and writer/director Shawn Linden knows how to create tension.

However, other reviews have sung the film’s praises.

May 1st, 2013   good lie, Publicity No Comments

Addicted have posted a fantastic audio interview with Thomas and The Good Lie director Shawn Linden. Listen below and check out the write-up at Addicted.

MrWillWong’s blog features a post about Thomas’s trip to Canada to promote The Good Lie – check it out including a cute snap from the event here.

… Tonight, handsome 25-year-old Dekker (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, My Sister’s Keeper) gave the Audience at Varsity Cinemas a special treat, dropping by to introduce the Film and partake in a Q&A.  Staying for most of the Film, the Actor head-out for the occasional Cigarette Break, kindly stopping for Photos with Fans who didn’t have passes for the Screening.  Looking sharp in a gray suit and teal shirt, his hair perfectly-imperfect, he asked, “You guys aren’t coming to watch the Movie?”, to which he learned that passes weren’t available to the Public.  Nonetheless, he was amazingly gracious as we would come to expect from someone Canadian-raised!

That sure sounds like our Thomas, charming all around!

Finally, there’s another great in-depth interview with Thomas over at Toronto Film Scene, read the full article at their site!

Describe your character in 10 words or less:
I don’t know if it will be 10 words but…He’s a young man whose life is completely turned upside down.

How did you get involved with the film?
Shawn Linden, the director, had seen me in a couple of different projects and he sent the script to my manager. I read it and then Shawn and I talked on the phone for about 2 1/2 hours and I said I wanted to do it! The next thing you know, I was flying off to Montreal. It was a pretty smooth entrance!

What did you like most about your character?
The journey that he has to go on is an actor’s dream. You start with this guy in one place – he’s a wealthy suburban kind of cocky kid and then literally, everything is taken from him. I loved the challenge of trying to figure out his transitions and transformations throughout the script so that it wasn’t a one note performance.

What’s the one thing you’d most like people to know about the film?
That it is really unique and probably unlike anything else they’ve seen. I think that is why the movie is hard to describe easily. It’s horrific, it’s moving, it’s genuine, it’s funny, bizarre. And the narrative structure is unique as it is framed within a bunch of campfire stories.

What’s your best memory from shooting the film?
All the french food! Hmm..other than Montreal!? I loved the process of working with Shawn and Matt (Matt Craven plays his father). Matt and I lived next door to each other while we were shooting and even though we had very few scenes actually together – he is looking for me in the film – it was a great opportunity for us to bond as father and son. And I got an ipad as a wrap gift so that was probably the best part! (laughs).

Who’s your biggest acting inspiration and why?
Good question! That’s a tricky one for me to answer because I tend to gravitate toward female performances. I grew up really influenced by River Pheonix. I loved him. I thought he was a very sensitive and open young actor. So I’d definitely say him – and Sigourney Weaver. They are my favourite actors.

If you could be in your dream project what would it be?
I’d probably say I have dreams of working with certain directors rather than a ‘dream project’. But I’m going to be in every film Shawn ever makes – we discussed this last night. I heard he was going to cast me as the lead in all of them. That’s what he told me and he better not take it back when he’s sober (laughing). I’ve always wanted to work with David Fincher and Michael Haneke. I love most Gus Van Sant projects. I’d really like to work with all of them.

What are you working on next?
I just finished a pilot for CBS called Backstrom with Rainn Wilson where I’m the male version of the The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo which was very fun to play. And I have two films coming up, one shooting in New York called Pretenders with Imogen Poots and one called The White City shooting in Tel Aviv, Israel with my costar from Kaboom (Haley Bennett). We are a couple in this one so it’s a slightly different dynamic!

April 26th, 2013   White City No Comments

Kaboom co-stars Thomas and Haley Bennett will be reunited for their upcoming movie ‘The White City’, Deadline announced. Thomas will play a young Israeli artist in one of a string of unique indie movies he is shooting this year.

“Kaboom” co-stars Haley Bennett and Thomas Dekker, along with Australian newcomer Bob Morley, will headline indie drama “The White City”, according to Deadline.

The Israel-set romantic drama is described as “an emotionally charged love triangle between three young artists that develops against the hot political climate of modern Tel Aviv.” Filming under co-directors Tanner King Barklow and Gil Kofman will begin in June.

Dekker and Bennett previously worked together on Gregg Araki’s “Kaboom”, which premiered at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival. Dekker has gone on to television, most recently “The Secret Circle” on The CW, and has also wrapped filming on a string of indies including “Snap”, “Squatters” and “Transference.”

There has been lots of promotion of ‘The Good Lie’ around this week ahead of the Canadian release on May 3rd.

… “I don’t know if I would refer to it as a horror film. It definitely has some really horrific elements to it,” he said Tuesday in Toronto. “It’s a family drama. It’s got fantasy elements to it, too. It’s a really unique movie.”

… Dekker plays Cullen Francis, a privileged young man whose life is turned upside down when he learns he’s the product of a vicious rape. “It’s really about a father and son,” Dekker explained. “Their relationship is challenged by this secret that comes from the past, so everything they’ve had is put to the test.”

… “I love doing that kind of work. I’ve sort of always been drawn to darker, heavier projects just because it’s more for you to do as an actor,” he said.

… “I love the Canadian crews,” said Dekker. “I’ve worked in Calgary, Winnipeg, Vancouver, Montreal… I’ve kind of been all over the place.”

You can view the FULL and in depth article here at Global News, as well as a great 6-minute interview with Thomas.

Thomas has completed filming on the pilot for a new TV show which it is rumoured he could recurr or co-star in should it be picked up for a full season. This exciting new role is alongside Rainn Wilson and appears to be a mix of White Collar’s Neal Caffrey and Mozzie combined…

“The Secret Circle” star Thomas Dekker is making his next TV move — right on over to CBS’s “Backstrom” pilot, from “Bones” boss Hart Hanson. “Backstrom,” based on a popular Swedish book series, is about a detective with a short temper who is often hindered by his own self-destructive behavior. Early buzz says that Backstrom (Rainn Wilson) is the Gregory House of the crime genre. Dekker is set to guest star as Valentine, an entrepreneurial crook who uses Backstrom’s apartment to store his high-end ill-gotten goods. He also serves as Backstrom’s decorator… and connection to the criminal underbelly…

Thomas Dekker is 25 years old!

Dear Thomas,

You’re twenty-five and no doubt experiencing your quarter-life crisis. You have expressed before that you’re ‘old’ and ‘haven’t done enough’. But fear not, you’re the only one who thinks this. To an outsider, you’ve accomplished amazing things and proven an inspiration for so many of us. So much of your journey is documented and immortalised in film. We’ve all had the pleasure of watching you grow as an actor and as a person – and into an incredible one. As Richard T. Jones once said about you “you achieve more by 6am than most people do all day”. You always strive for bigger and better. You’ve not only mastered one career, one art but many – acting, various aspects of film, music, art…when most 25 year olds are still figuring out their dreams or trying to make them a reality. You have been around the world, met so many people and affected their lives more than you could imagine. From personal experience, what you did for me this year alone is immense and I am so grateful, as always, for your kindness and extreme thoughtfulness.

You have such a bright future and I know we’re all excited to see what’s ahead.

Happy Birthday, Superstar. Have an amazing day. And then an amazing year. And another few quarter centuries too.

S

P.S. Can’t wait to see you in London and give you the birthday gift I found but couldn’t mail.

If you haven’t participated in the annual Alzheimers donation drive in honour of Thomas’s birthday and the memory of his father, then please consider donating as much as you can to your local Alzheimers charity. Even the smallest amount can make a difference, for example:

From the UK organisation website:

  • £5 could pay for one person to attend a half hour session at a monthly Dementia Café, providing information and support for people with dementia and their carers.
  • £20 could pay for 100 copies of Understanding and respecting the person with dementia – one of the Society’s most requested factsheets.
  • £50 could fund a PhD researcher for one day to continue vital research into understanding the causes of dementia, how it can be treated and, ultimately, to find a cure.
  • £120 could pay to run Talking Point for one day – the Society’s 24/7 online community for all people affected by dementia.

So, if even half of Thomas’s fans donated £5 then that could make a real impact!

To sweeten the deal, Dekker Daily have rustled up some prizes along with Thomas himself including signed Kaboom postcards and a Laid To Rest soundtrack featuring ‘Sexy Bitches’ co-written and performed by our man himself! If you’ve donated, e-mail or tweet them to let them know. They will add your name to the donations list and you might be in with a shot at winning. What’s more, Thomas will see the list and everyone who donated!

Apologies for the absent spell. I have been in hospital but have had surgery and should be back online during recovery.

In exciting news, Just Jared has reported on the “secret” project Thomas has been teasing us about since July’s London Film and Comic Con!

Thomas Dekker has joined the cast of Catherine Hardwicke‘s upcoming flick Plush, JustJared.com can exclusively report!

Plush, penned by Catherine and Arty Nelson, tells the story of a young rocker who struggles to continue writing music while juggling the death of her brother and collaborator, a jealous husband, two kids, and a mysterious guitarist who will stop at nothing to become the most important person in her life.

Already attached to the project are Emily Browning, Cam Gigandet, and Xavier Samuel.

The thriller is set to be released sometime next year!

The movie is a psychological thriller and Gigandet reportedly plays a psychiatrist treating this woman through some unusual methods. The details of Thomas’s character are as yet unknown.

Thomas admiring @tdekkersource’s shirt!

Thomas attended London Film and Comic Con between 6th-8th July 2012 and signed autographs, met fans, posed for photographs and participated in question and answer sessions. His usual charming, sweet self, Thomas impressed fans with his genuine interest and humility and is definitely wanted back for more!

If you have any pictures, videos or experiences to share then please send them in via the contact form or twitter, but for now here is the current update from the signing, along with a few snaps of myself and Thomas that I will treasure forever!

Personally, while I struggled physically with the event and the queues and location, I had a great time and enjoyed getting the opportunity to catch up with Thomas, old friends and even some new ones from my lovely twitter followers! As it turns out, once again when questions dry up during talks, yours truly is called upon by name for assistance and loves this! I also loved having you guys come up and chat to me about my Thomas shirts and the site!

My favourite image of myself & Thomas!

What we learned from LFCC:

  • Thomas is most looking forward to fans seeing “The Good Lie” (previously titled “Rose By Name”) which will hopefully premiere at Toronto Film Fest this year. He is also looking forward to us seeing “Snap” and “Squatters” as these characters are “badly behaved”.
  • A “big” project is shooting in August, however Thomas is not allowed to disclose details. (Please speculate away on the new forum!)
  • Thomas’s favourite co-star to have worked with was his “naughty best friend Lena” and the Secret Circle cast as they were all away from home and bonded together. He added he liked everyone and has made most of his best friends at work.
  • When asked which characters he would like to play, Thomas answered “most are female, so I can’t play them..well, I could…but…” and then settled for “a fiercely intelligent detective” because he’s obsessed with “The Killing”. Ripley in Alien is also one of his favourites as it has a duality he always looks for of sensitivity and harshness.
  • Thomas was asked what went wrong with The Secret Circle and described that his previous comments had been taken out of context. “I actually said my experience with my character didn’t click. There was so much story developing that the writers kept changing direction and as it evolved, Adam’s story was lost”. As for the downfall of the show, he described both Terminator and The Secret Circle as very expensive shows that suffered from a large budget and lower viewing figures.
  • On working with Gregg Araki on “Kaboom”: It was a fantastic but stressful and pressured experience for Thomas because he was passionate about the project, was a fan and wanted to do a good job. It was a challenge as he was “figuratively and literally naked” and had never done a sex scene before – and Kaboom was almost entirely sex scenes!He added that the experience of touring to promote Kaboom was the best, especially as Europeans freaked out about the movie (whereas Americans were scared of it). Thomas is actively campaigning with Araki to get himself a role in the new movie he’s making.
  • “Adam the manwhore” was the nickname for his Secret Circle character, as he got around the circle. Thomas and Phoebe were never encouraged to flirt, but at one point went out of their way to show chemistry and interact and told the directors they were meant to be flirting! Thomas suspected he’d have moved on to the whole circle, perhaps even Jake! (How I wish).
  • Adam & Melissa: Thomas and Jessica Parker Kennedy had commented that they were the only two in the circle who had never spoken to each other on screen by midseason and in the latter half of the series, they were always interacting and there was a hint of romantic interest. In season two, Thomas suspected they would have developed this.
  • When I asked Thomas about working with Natasha Henstridge, who he famously had a childhood crush on, Thomas replied “my inner sci-fi geek is in love with Natasha Henstridge” and that his mother called him up when she had been cast to tell him the news and he thought she was messing with him. They are now good friends and he is also friends with her husband Darius.
  • Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles season two would have featured an interesting Summer-Thomas-Summer love triangle that hadn’t really been done on television before. Thomas expressed his feelings that Josh Friedman is one of the best writers on television and that his two pilots being abandonned shows the state of American television – too simplistic and thoughtless, Josh is too smart.
  • Thomas has also dealt with cancellation of his favourite shows and can sympathise, as he loved Terminator but also was a fan of “Dead Like Me”. In fact, the actress who played Delores in the show was a consultant on The Secret Circle!
  • Regarding photography, Thomas admitted he was “lazy” and also that he had been uninspired in Canada because it was too beautiful and he is inspired by “misery and darkness”. Thomas is currently enjoying more muse for writing, which is something he has always had an interest in and has also had a photography table book made up to show friends and colleagues. He described himself as “schizophrenic” inside his head.
  • Thomas is a prankster and admitted to pulling practical jokes on The Secret Circle and Terminator sets. On TSCC he flubbed lines and scenes, giving bad takes to new directors and flirting with his on-screen mother on camera. The TSC scene where a hand reaches out for Cassie in the bloopers was his idea!
  • Regarding “Second City This Week” gig, it was “scary” and he was told to “prepare to be told you’re terrible”. It was written on the Friday night, rehearsed Saturday afternoon and performed Saturday evening as a group.
  • Walk of Fame is now in production and Thomas was meeting investors later in the week in London to try and secure additional financing. This is his main focus at present.
  • Thomas shared that he had history with many of the other LFCC guests, including Jewel Staite who was his first on-screen kiss on “Honey I Shrunk The Kids” aged 9 or 10 (yes, I remember this). Jewel’s character was under a spell of some sort and thought she liked Nick (Thomas) and kissed him, despite being somewhat older.
  • When asked what Thomas preferred doing, he explained he loves being his own boss when making music in his own house, liking jumping from film to film like a kid and enjoying being a grown-up committing to television. Thomas loves to direct and write as well as act and make music and has always been encouraged by his parents, who supported his interest and didn’t push him into anything.
  • Thomas’s role in Foreverland is a cameo and he has no idea where it will be released aside from Vancouver Film Festival.
  • On preparing for Angels Crest role, Thomas said he spent 2 weeks before shooting living with his on-screen son and his family, fell in love with him and spent most of the movie crying. The pre-death scenes were filmed first and were easier emotionally, but he was going through a personal tragedy at the time and so there are moments in the movie where the grief is real and intertwined. It was very exhausting emotionally and physically and afterwards he needed lots of rest to recover. It’s the role he’s proudest of and thinks it’s his best performance.
  •  On working with Chris Zylka, Thomas said that they met on Kaboom in robes! Afterwards, they saw each other around and Thomas was apprehensive about another male joining the cast, but was pleased to hear Chris was auditioning and was pleased when he won the role. They have become like brothers and were planning on sharing a house in Vancouver while filming series 2 of The Secret Circle. Thomas joked they might have died from having too much fun!
  • On Terminator continuing: Syfy had investigated picking up the show after cancellation but reruns did not attract enough viewers. (Admin note: because everyone who loves it has it on DVD perhaps?). In terms of Brian and Thomas’s previous announcement, he didn’t have any updates.

London Film & Comic Con, UK, 6-8th July

UK fans can also meet Thomas at London Film and Comic Con at the Olympia Grand Hall 6th-8th July. Thomas will be signing, participating in two question and answer sessions and two photo sessions.

You can find more information, including travel routes and prices here.

Other News

Thomas has also recently completed filming on ‘Squatters’ and is in pre-production on his brand new feature film ‘Walk of Fame’ which was rescheduled from last year – exciting times to be a Dekker fan! More soon!

June 8th, 2012   Foreverland No Comments

A new trailer has been released for the movie Foreverland, in which Thomas Dekker’s character leaves a video will instructing his friend to travel 2,000 miles to scatter his ashes. It tells the story of a young man with cystic fibrosis and stars Juliet Lewis and Max Thieriot.

You may also download the official soundtrack for a donation to a Cystic Fibrosis charity here. The album is non-profit and all donations will go to the charity.

June 5th, 2012   Squatters No Comments

Thomas has revealed some interesting details regarding his latest role as Jonas in ‘Squatters’, to The Insider.

“The minute I read the script, I decided I would take anyone out at the knees if they tried to take it away from me,” he laughs. “It was one of those very rare moments for me because I tend not to get truly excited about much. Jonas is a child, yet he’s incredibly smart but stupid at times. He’s irrational and very cruel – but also sensitive and empathetic. It’s rare as a young actor to get such a layered character and play an arc.”

“He’s the kind of person who is always playing at something he’s not – that’s a huge challenge as an actor because how do you realistically play somebody who is never realistically playing themselves?”

“From the moment this movie sets its plot our in front of you, you know it’s going to go wrong – so you are waiting for the shoe to drop,” he says. “The great thing about Squatters is it sort of feels like 10 different movies rolled into one. You’ve got this homeless saga, a rags-to-riches tale, a love story, a crime thriller and they’re all woven into one piece, which is just so exciting.”

UK Signing Update

Thomas has unfortunately had to cancel his appearance at Collectormania this weekend due to filming commitments on the overrunning Squatters, but is instead appearing at another Showmasters event in July – London Film and Comic Con. The event takes place 6th-8th July at the Olympia Grand Hall, London. This is obviously very disappointing news but if you’re able, get along to LFCC!

If you have photo session tickets with Thomas for Collectormania, they have advised you may return your ticket for a refund or take it along to LFCC.

 

Thomas Talks The Secret Circle

Thomas had remained quiet about the cancellation of The Secret Circle and has for the first time opened up about his feelings regarding the show and its unexpected demise. Though the show was beloved by many, his long-time fans were mostly left with mixed feelings which Thomas himself seems to mirror.

TheInsider.com: How did you find out about the show’s cancellation?
Thomas Dekker: I actually found out the show was canceled the first day of filming on Squatters, so I feel very lucky to have something to jump into. I admire and am very grateful for the season I got of that show because I worked with such an incredible cast, but I never really felt the show and I particularly clicked in the way it was intended. Don’t get me wrong, I was surprised it was canceled, but I was comfortable with moving on.

Insider: When we spoke back in September, you were excited to take Adam down a dark path. Something that never quite happened on the show. Is that what you’re referring to?
Thomas: Absolutely. I don’t think I’m being offensive in saying that Adam was the most underdeveloped character on the show. Which is not at the fault of the writers – I think it was just how the narrative of the series wound up. The importance of other stories and development of other characters was more pressing. But I think I entered with a different view of who the character was and where he was going, versus what it ended up being. And that might have been true for Andrew [Miller, showrunner] and Kevin [Williamson, EP] as well. Adam definitely ended up being quite different from who I thought he would be. Not in a negative way, just in a different way. And if you saw in the season finale, that’s where we were hinting it would go next season, so I’m just going to pretend that in the season two that never happened, Adam became the Antichrist [laughs].

Insider: This is now the second beloved TV show you’ve been on to get canceled and draw ire from fans. Has it disuaded you from doing another TV show?
Thomas: Not at all. I love television. When I’d gotten Secret Circle, I’d been doing a lot of movies since Sarah Connor, so I had forgotten how much of a grind it is. I mean, it’s such a long commitment and such long hours and gives you a product you have to match every week. But that’s a great challenge. I feel like the grown up in me enjoys working in TV, and the playful child in me enjoys making movies.

Insider: You’re currently preparing to direct a film you’ve also written — is that cast locked, or might we see some of your Secret Circle co-stars cameo?
Thomas: We had a locked cast last year, but it was put off because of Secret Circle — I couldn’t exactly make the movie while we were shooting in Canada. I would work with any of those people again. In particular, I had one of the greatest working and learning experiences on that show with Shelley Hennig. I would love to work with her again. We have a very special friendship and creative bond. The great thing about the shows that I’ve done is that I’ve walked away with the greatest friends of my life – like Lena Headey and Summer Glau from the old one, and all five of my crazy cast mates on the new one. I feel very lucky.

The Secret Circle Cancellation

Unfortunately, The Secret Circle was officially cancelled by The CW Network on May 11th, 2012. There is a fan campaign to save the show here, however at this point it seems unlikely that anything will change with this decision. Despite TSC being the network’s second highest performer and best performer of it’s freshman shows, they decided it was to end after one season.

This is unfortunate news and I’d like to express my condolences to the cast and crew, but espescially Thomas who has been here before with TSCC. The show, despite early flaws and the annoying lack of development or story for Adam (Dekker) early on, it was improving and had great potential!

I hope that you new TSC Thomas fans will continue to support this incredibly talented, sweet and humble actor along with us oldies. Thomas has been acting for most of his life and is a true professional. And, to quote Tyler Shields, “a true artist”.

Thomas is currently working on various projects, including Squatters, My Eleventh and a new album with Zero Times Zero.

 

Off Topic: ME Awareness Week

It’s off topic but I would like to also mention CFS/ME Awareness Week, which has actually just ended but is something that is really important to me personally. I have had this illness for several years now and there is very little understanding or knowledge of it, which makes it frustrating at times. Please take a moment to visit the ME Association website for some great information about this invisible illness which impacts more people than you’d expect! In the sidebar there is also a link to AYME, which is a young person’s ME charity which connects and supports sufferers under 25.

I have also blogged about my experiences, in the cut-off below for any that are interested in a more personal account. I am an undergraduate completing a research project on ME! Thanks for reading and please keep spreading the word.

Celebrity photographer Tyler Shields has struck again, shooting Thomas alongside The Secret Circle co-star Phoebe Tonkin (Faye) in a marriage themed shoot. Tyler shot Thomas for the infamous arrest shoot, in which Thomas’s nose was reportedly broken for a second time. Check out the full shoot at his website and all pictures of Thomas here.

“Thomas Dekker is one of my favorites! We have done a lot together and this is just a little tease of whats to come”.

May 4th, 2012   Secret Circle No Comments

As you might have noticed from Twitter, Thomas has wrapped on The Secret Circle and the rumours are flying about a much discussed death. SkyLivingOnline have re-posted and quoted Thomas and a few of the cast, suggesting it might spell doom for our beloved Adam.

What’s your opinion on this, because personally, I think it’s a little too obvious! Thomas wouldn’t be allowed to take to twitter, would he? (Though he did once reveal Terminator spoilers on youtube). I think this is a red herring to throw us off. It’s not working, but I dig the cute pictures.

 

The-Secret-Circle-Thomas-Dekker-tweets-finale-spoiler-120411-15

Thomas tweeted, “filming my final scene!” and “THAT’S A WRAP!!! #tsc” as well as a little shout out to Shelley Hennig, who plays the gorgeous Diana: “The pleasure has been ALL mine Ms @shelleyhennig !” (sic)

But it was the tweets from some of the other members of the circle that have got us in a bewitched tizzy.

Shelley posted: “This just I’n… @theThomasDekker WRAPPED. by far the most talented person I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with.” (sic)

And Pheobe Tonkin, who plays high school witch Faye Chamberlain, wrote: “3 witches down 3 to go..”

Could she be spelling the end for the circle? Has Adam met his maker? At least Cassie has Jake’s shoulder to cry on.

TDS Verdict: unlikely. Though if The Secret Circle for some strange reason isn’t renewed by The CW this month, they’ll all be goners!

Congratulations to Thomas, who is set to star in “Squatters”. It sounds like a fantastic role and something for him to really sink his teeth into!

The Hollywood Reporter:

Directed by Martin Weisz, Squatters is set to star Thomas Dekker and Gabriella Wilde in the story of a young homeless couple who move into an empty Pacific Palisades mansion while its owners are on vacation. Complications ensue when the owners return early. Actor Justin Shilton (Little Miss Sunshine) wrote the screenplay…

“When I read Justin Shilton’s script — one of the most powerful and beautiful I’ve encountered in years — I felt we just had to make this film,” said Moyer. “I’ve known director Martin Weisz for many years and we are proud to support him and these terrific lead actors in this endeavor.” [Source]

Movie City News adds:

Nasso added, “We’re pleased to be involved with such incredible material, and was hugely impressed with the readings of our two young leads. I think with such an excellent script, Dekker and Wilde have the chance to really embrace these roles and break out on the highest levels.  We believe the film has very broad demographic appeal and expect everyone from 15-80 will like it equally!” [Source]

ZERO TIMES ZERO

Zero Times Zero trailer, courtesy of Official Site

As you may have noticed, Thomas had his fun with everyone over Easter weekend, tweeting cryptic clues to a secret, which was later revealed to be a brand new and intriguing musical project that has been in the pipeline for 2 years (and was the secret mentioned to UK fans at T3)

The band, named Zero Times Zero, whose identities are a secret (with the exception of Dekker) will launch their debut album ‘Equals Zero’ very soon.

The official website has now been launched and the band play their first live show on April 19th at The Viper Room, LA.

Zero Times Zero is an art collective featuring Thomas Dekker that incorporates music, fashion, video art and performance. Here they premiere their debut album “Equals Zero”, a dark synth ridden blend of rock, techno and rhythmic orchestral written and produced solely by the collective. They intend to challenge the current conventions of pop while keeping their personal identities cloaked in mystery. If there was a party in the world of “Blade Runner”, the Replicants would surely be dancing to the music of Zero Times Zero.” [Source]

Digital Journal have also posted an article about the announcement & show.

We Asked…We Got. AKA, So You Want to Meet Thomas?

Great news for you Brits who have yet to meet Thomas – or those of you who, like me, want to meet him again (and why wouldn’t you?). The lovely, personable and incredibly sweet Mr. Dekker is returning to us with none other than Kaboom and Secret Circle co-star and friend Chris Zylka! Those lovely people at Showmasters Events have announced the duo are appearing for a signing, autographs and possibly more at the collector’s fair this year.

EDIT: It has also been announced that Leven Rambin, Thomas’s co-star from Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles will be appearing!

May I point out the campaign we launched on the forums & twitter asking for this very thing? It works, it works!

The Details

Thomas is billed to appear from Friday 1st June to Sunday 3rd June 2012 at Collectormania in Milton Keynes, England. He will be signing autographs and participating in a photoshoot, though these have yet to be announced or pre-sold.

Stadium:MK Stadium
Way West
Milton Keynes
MK1 1ST

There is a free bus from Milton Keynes and various travel links. If you are driving, there will be free parking. Visit the Collectormania site for more information!

The Frequently Asked

I’ve had questions from various parties about how this event works, so let me explain:

  1. This is not a convention. It is an event. There is NO ENTRANCE FEE.
  2. You pay only for your autographs and photographs, from the people you want to buy from.
  3. You can buy photoshoot tickets in advance from the website, though Thomas’s aren’t up yet. (I will announce).
  4. You get very limited access to each guest, just as they sign or pose. Don’t expect the world, but it’s still a great opportunity.
  5. You must pay for your own travel, food, drink and such forth.
  6. Thomas usually does not sign Heroes things and they usually only allow official merchandise to be signed at events.
  7. If you have any more questions, check the forum or tweet me @tdekkersource.

Meet Up

If anyone is interested in a meet up then e-mail or tweet me and let me know, as I’m hoping to arrange a casual coffee shop meet for Dekker fans, most likely for Friday or Saturday. I’ll be collecting numbers or possibly twitters to notify everyone of time and place etc!

March 15th, 2012   Publicity, Rumours, Secret Circle No Comments

There are lots of interesting spoilers turning up for The Secret Circle, including a few that were dropped by Thomas himself! There’s more spoilers and gossip below the cut. As always, click the source link for the full scoop!

Huffington Post interviews Thomas & Britt:

In the episodes leading up to the break, we witnessed Cassie (Robertson) and Adam (Dekker) growing closer, and now the two star-crossed witches are an official couple, which, according to Dekker is “nice to play with” after so long giving each other furtive glances and shy smiles.

“In ‘Lucky,’ we’re definitely together, but there are situations in the episode that are already challenging for us, [like]arguments about parental history, and it’s interesting to already have a situation challenge us when we’re such a new couple,” Dekker said. “And in the following episode, you find out more about the ‘written in the stars’ destiny of our families and what that really means. I had a lot of fun shooting those episodes because Brittany and I got to get into the meat of those characters.”

…Sadly, that goodwill won’t extend to the rest of the circle’s parents, who all have their own checkered history with Blackwell — especially Adam’s father, Ethan (Adam Harrington). “We sort of hinted in ‘Witness’ that Ethan possibly wasn’t so clean or honest as he has pretended to be,” Dekker said. “What that really means, we find out in the next couple of episodes. The arrival of Blackwell, and especially Blackwell becoming so close with our circle, is the most information we’ve gotten from any of our parents, and it’s the closest we’ve gotten to really hearing the truth, and it starts to challenge everything that Adam has believed in his whole life.”

In fact, Dekker shared, Blackwell’s friction with Ethan becomes the main source of conflict between their children: “When Cassie, with her father, starts to unearth more truths, that’s kind of the challenge that it puts on our relationship of ‘Who do we trust?’ and it sort of becomes a bit of a competition of which parent is really the villain or the hero … but I will not reveal which one Ethan is — it’s exciting!”

“Lucky” is also a pivotal episode for Dawn (Natasha Henstridge), Dekker said, as we see her “reveal her true colors and her true past with Blackwell” — a theme that will carry through to episode 119.

Chris Zylka has been busy discussing Thomas, their relationship, The Secret Circle and Kaboom!

The extremely friendly and funny actor recently took a few minutes to answer some of my questions about reuniting with Thomas Dekker (they worked together in the amazing 2010 film Kaboom), the therapeutic value of playing Jake, and dealing with post-Christmas underwear scenes.

When it comes to the show’s central love triangle, it seems as though Jake’s got the majority of the fans’ votes, though Adam certainly has his supporters. Is there an effort made behind the scenes to keep things balanced?

Jake can’t always win and Adam can’t always win. We try to keep it even. Thomas and I constantly get together and we’re like, “All right, well if you win this exchange, I’ll win this one.” And we’re best friends so it’s never an argument. It’s usually me saying, “No, YOU win,” and he’s saying, “No, YOU win.” “All right, cool. We’ll both win.” [Laughs]

Is it just serendipity that you guys had worked together before?

It was so serendipitous and amazing. And I literally remember—I don’t know if I was shooting Spider-Man or Piranha at the time that he booked the pilot for The Secret Circle, but I called Thomas instantly when I found out and was just like, “Congratulations, man!” And then when The Secret Circle got picked up I called him again. And then I think about two or three weeks went by and I got the audition for Jake. I called him and I’m like, “Dude, we’re gonna work together again, I know it.” And then it happened and it was amazing. It was amazing.

Was it written in the stars?

Yeah. It was destined.

In other news…

  • Rumours are flying around about The Secret Circle and whether or not it will be renewed for a second series. Given that it has a strong following, reasonable worldwide ratings and is steadily improving, I’m not particularly concerned! According to this article however, it is currently ‘on the bubble’ for renewal.
  • Thomas announced via Twitter that he is involved in a secret project with friend and creative designer Lisa Fabio! Stay tuned for more information as it comes.
  • My dream has come true: my favourite two actors, Thomas & Joe Lando have appeared in new promotional TSC shots at Just Jared.
  • Spoilers for 1.17:  As we all know, The Secret Circle’s Cassie Blake (Britt Robertson) and Adam Conant (Thomas Dekker) are fated to be together, and in Episode 17, “Curse,” John Blackwell confirms their destiny. The catch? Their love is cursed – much like Romeo and Juliet – only more ’90s and with (hopefully) less poison. – TSC Wetpaint
  • Spoilers for 1.18: “Meanwhile, Faye (Phoebe Tonkin) and Melissa (Jessica Parker Kennedy) help Adam (Thomas Dekker) at the boathouse (we assume he needs a hand hanging mass amounts of Chinese lanterns), but they make him return the favor. How? By magically “enhancing” their love life. Two things: One, isn’t that what voodoo spellgasms are for? And two, we shall henceforth be referring to Adam as Cupid.” – TSC Wetpaint
  • All About Evil has been airing in the US on Chiller for those who have yet to see it. It is well worth a watch!
January 6th, 2012   Secret Circle, Videos No Comments

Beware of spoilers for The Secret Circle episode 1.10. The article accompanying this video can be found at Zap2It, by Secret Circle authority @cadlymack.

TDS Warning: this video may trigger extreme responses in fan girls, not limited to squealing, nail biting and death threats toward one particular character. It may also trigger “Don’t hurt Dekker!” responses. Seriously.

The news has been full of Thomas-related articles recently, whether they are celebrating the eagerly anticipated second half of The Secret Circle series 1 (returning tonight for US viewers), Thomas’s birthday celebrations or his newest flick, Angels Crest. There’s more coming, but for now, the latest roundup:

 Angels Crest

“Dekker’s performance is heart wrenching and Dellal is definitely a director to watch.” – Womens News, on ‘Angels Crest’

 Birthday Bash at Lavo

“On Wednesday night, Thomas Dekker from The Secret Circle on the CW celebrated his 24th birthday with dinner at Lavo. He was joined by co-stars Chris Zylka and Shelly Henning, along with Jade Ramsey, who he shared the screen with in All About Evil, and Anthony Fitzgerald, his co-star from Laid to Rest, as well as actress Nikita Ramsey. The birthday boy went out of his way to tell the staff how much they all loved the meal.” – HauteLiving

 The Secret Circle Spoilers 1.11: Fire & Ice

“Cassie (Britt Robertson) asks Adam (Thomas Dekker) for help when she wants to look into her father’s past, and their search leads them to an eerily familiar place. It also rekindles an old flame when Adam, thrilled to be spending time with Cassie again, asks her to the Fire and Ice dance. But because of her friendship with Diana (Shelley Hennig) Cassie is forced to give a surprising response. And in an effort to be a better father, Ethan (Adam Harrington) offers to chaperone the dance, much to Adam’s dismay.” – Dread Central

“Put your dancing shoes on ladies, because the Fire and Ice dance is coming to Chance Harbor and we know what that means: Adam (Thomas Dekker) in a Mad Men-inspired skinny tie. It’s a magical gift from the stars! In Season 1, Episode 11, “Fire/Ice”, Cassie (Britt Robertson) is still all torn up about the fact that she’s related to the summoner of all evil, a.k.a. John Blackwell, so she asks Adam to climb the family tree with her. And yes, that is code for magical eye-sexing. Adam is so excited to be spending quality time with his soul mate that he asks her to the school dance – but does she say yes? Considering that Cassie’s become sister-friends with Diana (Shelley Hennig), it’s not looking good. Meanwhile, Ethan (Adam Harrington) decides to take his drunken debauchery public and offers to chaperone the dance. Needless to say, tons of hormonal sixteen-year-olds will be swooning all over themselves as he drinks in the corner.” – WetPaint

Dekked out! The Wild and Wonderful Fashion of Thomas Dekker

While many Hollywood dudes are content to stick to suits for red carpet events, Thomas Dekker pushes the fashion envelope wherever he goes. From plaid pants to unique jewelry, the Secret Circle star loves to show off his stellar style. View the awesome Wetpaint gallery here.

January 5th, 2012   Angels Crest No Comments

I’m attempting to catch up on the back log of articles and interviews to come out in the last couple of months and found this gem! This is an excerpt from a much longer interview with Thomas’s Angels Crest co-star, Lynn Collins (his ex-girlfriend, Cindy) and director Gaby Dellal. They have plenty of wonderful words to describe Thomas!

angelscrestinterview3 angelscrest01 angels_crest-6-web

 

CS: …could you talk about the casting for roles like Thomas and others?
Dellal:
It was really hard to find the perfect Ethan, and I really did comb the country, and I saw English actors and Welsh actors and American actors and actually, Thomas (Dekker) was the last person that I met, and in fact, Lynn was already on board and auditioned with him, and there was just an amazing chemistry between the two of them and there was just something that… I mean, he’s an amazing young boy. What I was really keen on was youth and innocence and naivety, and I think we got that in spades with him, not only visually, but he had to imagine what it was like to have his own child, which is a really hard thing to imagine.

CS: How old is he?
Dellal:
When he shot it, he was 21, so he is a very young boy, but I think a bit like Lynn said, he had to go to those places, to find an emotional honesty, to fulfill character and the character’s journey that he was playing, and I think both with Lynn and with Thomas, they’re both such brittle, amazing actors, that you just have to touch them and their whole body flinches and exposes what’s going on inside. They’re both very bright and intuitive, so what was really hard was orchestrating the pain and knowing that this film just couldn’t be filled with endless tears, because there’s a limit to how much crying you can watch on screen. With all the actors, they were all imagining what it would be like, and even the characters around the main two characters, Lynn and Thomas, as characters they were empathizing to such an extent with a member of their community who was going through the worst possible tragedy, that you imagine its use, initially for the first few weeks where it’s raw, and so it was really hard and there was a lot in the editing process to take out. But I kind of knew it from when I started, when I wanted somebody to lose it and when I wanted the focus to be on somebody more outside. It’s just the nerves that get touched in everybody at different times when you just lose it, so Jeremy Piven, just right at the end. He’s just a bombastic, battling through. He’s like a klutz when he arrives; he drops things all the time. He’s completely not liked within the community because he’s there to stir things up, and right at the end, just when he realizes (something that’s a plot spoiler), he just dissolves, and it’s because he has a backstory which we never touch on, but it’s just orchestrating when everybody loses it, when each person loses it and giving enough space around them for us the audience to care when Lynn loses it. And the trajectory of their pain was really interesting, how to orchestrate it.

 CS: I especially wanted to ask about Thomas’ character Ethan who is very young, and I was curious about that decision.
Dellal:
He’s older in the book.

CS: I was wondering if there was any mention of how Ethan and Lynn’s character ended up having a kid together in the book because he’s so much younger. I expected she slept with him while she was drunk or something.
Dellal:
He’s much older and I can’t even remember what happens between the two of them in the book. We made (the backstory) up for ourselves what happened, and I always had it in my head that she was a woman who came to town, seduced the most beautiful boy around, he actually fell very in love with her, and they had a huge connection. She gets pregnant and he then grows up before his time and has to take responsibility for the child, and I think that to already have your child taken away from you, however inebriated you are and however much in a fog, is like a knife in a woman’s heart, and then to have your child taken away again and you this time not being directly responsible. And she lost any potential love she had for this young boy. Lynn was going through such inordinate amounts of pain that you’re right. In the playing of it, she also went through a lot of hard soul-searching, like enormous amounts and it was very difficult to come through it.

Collins: Yeah.

Dellal: What I was intrigued by Thomas was the notion of a baby losing a baby and the idea of a father, and I thought people would think if you lose a child at 21, it’s not as bad, because you’re probably a bad father, and so it would’ve been much harder had he been a proper father. So then I thought, “What is a proper father? What is a proper mother?” There isn’t a proper anything. We’re animals and we have children and we look after our young and some of us do it really badly, some of us do it really well, too well and ruin the child, so that’s the circumstances. For me it was an analogy that there are no rules as to who can father and mother, so that’s why I wanted this very young boy, because I think the consensus then is really more interesting, because even though you shouldn’t diminish his pain because of his youth, even though you shouldn’t, you probably in a nonchalant way, do. You go, “Well, he’s a baby.” I have a scene where they’re playing PlayStation, because you just do the same things that you did and for Thomas or Ethan, it was on a Thursday night, all his mates came around and they played PlayStation and talked crap. But this guy was going through the worst possible agony he could ever, and in the end, it ruined him. Lynn Collins’ character is the only character that I believe in some way grew or strengthened as a result of the tragedy. She started off at the darkest possible part of her life, and then it felt like there was some sort of light for her, but I also think that Ethan, even though he comes to a dark ending, for me as the filmmaker and storyteller, I believe that was the only light he could seek.

Collins: I sort of went backwards and let the work… we had such an incredible audition experience with Thomas when he came in and I read with him. Gabby wasn’t there, and we just had this really attentive collaborative moment with each other, and it made everything that we did in the film super-easy, and made it work, and the sort of camaraderie we felt. The last thing I want to say about it from my perspective as an artist, is that I hope that as people watch this film that the sadness is transformative, that it’s not a blanket, that is something that will move people forward.

thomas24th

Thomas had a wonderful 24th birthday yesterday, celebrating with friends and family at Lavo, in Las Vegas. He took to Twitter to show off his new camera, express his thanks for the birthday wishes from his fans (including @tdekkersource!) and to give a further push for the Alzheimers drive that he and Dekker Daily are running.

To make it easier for you guys in the UK, I’ve added a picture link in the sidebar, which will remain there after the end of the drive. This is a little Causes section of things that are close to my heart and AYME and Alzheimer’s Society both are. I myself have M.E., which is a very misunderstood illness and AYME is a charity for young sufferers, to support them and bring them together – as most are housebound and socially isolated. Alzheimer’s Society is also close to my heart, because I work with people with mental health issues, including dementia, and lost a family member after a very long period with the disease. Thomas also of course supports Alzheimer research in memory of his father, David, who passed from Alzheimers complications.

From the UK organisation website:

  • £5 could pay for one person to attend a half hour session at a monthly Dementia Café, providing information and support for people with dementia and their carers.
  • £20 could pay for 100 copies of Understanding and respecting the person with dementia – one of the Society’s most requested factsheets.
  • £50 could fund a PhD researcher for one day to continue vital research into understanding the causes of dementia, how it can be treated and, ultimately, to find a cure.
  • £120 could pay to run Talking Point for one day – the Society’s 24/7 online community for all people affected by dementia.

Even the smallest donation can make a big difference – if everyone gives their pocket change, it will soon add up! Not forgetting, there are prizes to be won…see Dekker Daily for information and the prizes, including a phonecall from Thomas! All you need to do is donate and tweet or e-mail to notify them of your donation. Simple!

Thomas was thankful for us at Thanksgiving – us the site and us the fans!

For the Americans, Thanksgiving is the time to reflect on who and what people are thankful for. For the rest of the world, Christmas is the perfect occasion! And so, a few days before Christmas, wouldn’t it be nice to take a moment and share why we’re thankful for Thomas and remember some of our favourite moments of the year? It could be anything from a personal encounter to a retweet, or a scene in a movie or show.

Tweet your #thankfulforthomasdekker thoughts to @tdekkersource or leave them in the comments and I’ll be retweeting the best!

I’m thankful for Thomas…
1) Because he’s so dedicated to his fans.
2) For meeting Thomas again this year.
3) For his mentions which have made my day.
4) For having him on my screen each week.
5) For admitting to visiting TDS sometimes.
6) For being so generous to me at T3.
7) For just being him!
8) For being an actor I can be proud to follow.
9) For agreeing (at T3) to answer my questions.
10) For offering to write something for the site (at T3).

Overall, as you can see – just for being Thomas!

Thomas is asking for you to donate to Alzheimer’s charities for his birthday, in memory of his father who passed from complications of the disease. Alzheimers research is a wonderful cause and one that is also very close to my own heart, so please donate to your country’s charity today! The amount isn’t important – if everyone in the world gave just a few pennies then they would have a huge influx of funds, so the more the merrier.

In the UK, you can donate to Alzheimer’s Society, or in the US, here. Alternatively, search in google for your respective body.

Dekker Daily is also running a contest in conjunction with Thomas, for great prizes including a phonecall with the man himself. All you have to do is donate and e-mail or tweet them!

Thomas is Hot in Hollywood

Thomas Dekker began acting at age 6 on the soap opera The Young and the Restless, and while he has seen much of  his “childhood competition” leave show business, he has instead thrived, and he’s now starring  in the CW series The Secret Circle. “Deep  down,  it’s part of  me.  It’s my  blood,” says Dekker, 23. “Growing up in it, it’s always been good to me, and that’s not true for everybody. Just getting to meet the people I’ve met and work with, the people I’ve worked with so closely, has really shaped the way I live my life, not just how I do my job.”

Just a quick update as it’s been a while and there’s constantly news flooding in about our favourite! Unfortuantely there’s no word on a UK release for Angels Crest, but see below if you’re in the US.

Angels Crest US Release

New York, New York (October 14, 2011) – Magnolia Pictures has acquired all U.S. distribution rights to Angels Crest, which had its World Premiere at The 2011 Tribeca Film Festival, it was announced today.  Celsius is handling international rights to the film.  Magnolia plans a November 25th, 2011 VOD launch and December 30th, 2011 theatrical release for the film.

Gaby Dellal’s Angels Crest features an all-star cast including Jeremy Piven, Kate Walsh, Thomas Dekker, Lynn Collins, Mira Sorvino and Elizabeth McGovern.  The film tells the story of a small rural community during the first snow of winter, when 3 year-old Nate Denton mysteriously disappears from his father’s truck.  The inhabitants of Angels Crest confront what this tragic event means to them, and have to deal with their own concepts of right and wrong.

“Gaby Dellal has made a mark for herself with Angels Crest,” said Magnolia President Eamonn Bowles.  “Her direction and the tremendous ensemble make for a moving film experience.”

The screenplay was adapted by Catherine Trieschmann and based on Leslie Schwartz’s novel ‘Angels Crest’.  Produced by Shirley Vercruysse and Leslie Cowan.  Tim Perell and William Mulroy served as Executive Producers.

The deal was negotiated for Magnolia by SVP of Acquisitions Dori Begley and Head of Legal and Business Affairs Chris Matson, with Cinetic Media.

Sixteen years ago, as a child actor on an episode of Seinfeld, Thomas Dekker got an awesome compliment: “Jerry told my mother he thought for a kid, I was really good at comedy,” Thomas remembers, “which is funny, because I don’t think I’ve done any since I was fifteen. I don’t know what went wrong there–maybe puberty changed it all.”

…Thomas plays Adam, who helps Cassie deal with her newfound powers. “He’s a stand-up, all-American guy,” he says.

But because this is Thomas, you know Adam can’t be too much of a goody-goody. “Don’t worry,” he hints. “Witchcraft is all about light and dark; nobody will remain constant throughout the show. It gets darker and dangerous.”

Thomas Blogs for MTV

We all know that Thomas is a huge fan of Halloween and a self-confessed ‘film nerd’, so he recently took to the MTV Blog to share his favourite scary movies.

I am obsessed with horror movies, so it’s nearly impossible for me to pick one. However, with Halloween coming up, I’d say the best one to get you and a group of friends in the mood is the brilliantly executed “Poltergeist.” I first saw it when I was about eight years old, and it absolutely terrified me. When JoBeth Williams falls in the pool and dozens of rotting corpses bob up beside her, it scared me from swimming in any pool for about a year. Even in daylight! This idea that a perfectly normal suburban neighborhood can harbor a secret so dark and a haunting so immense really places you in the shoes of the terrorized family. You can imagine it happening to you no matter where you live.

What some people may not know about this film is that it was produced by Steven Spielberg, so a lot of the movie feels very light and sweet—like all the scares are in good fun—but it was also directed by Tobe Hooper, the man behind the original (and equally brilliant) “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre,” which we all know is a horror movie that doesn’t mess around. You can literally feel the tug of war between the glossy comfort of Spielberg and the no-holds-barred terror of Hooper when he rips the audience’s safety net apart and fully takes hold of the movie in the last act.

Ultimately, the great thing about “Poltergeist” is it can be completely enjoyed by hardcore horror fans like me but is light enough in intensity for the faint of heart or the squeamish. But believe me, when your friends arrive to watch this movie with you, the words “They’re Here…” will never sound the same again.

SkyLiving, the UK home of The Secret Circle, posted up a little interview with Thomas. It’s nothing new, but still a decent read! Of course don’t forget to tune in on Wednesday nights at 8pm UK twitches!What did everyone think of this week’s episode? Seems like the circle is heating up! Tweet me at @tdekkersource.

Were you a fan of the supernatural genre before getting involved in this show?

In my youth I was obsessed with the movie The Craft. I never got into practicing Wiccanism or anything, but I certainly had a deep fascination for it. It’s a little different from what the show is at this point, in that we already have these innate abilities: we can move things with our mind, we can control the elements, but I am really hoping that we get to do more bell, book and candles type spells, with herbs and the earth and stuff like that. And, of course, it’s really exciting for us as actors because with witchcraft, the age-old rule is that you have the light and the dark; you have the two options and it doesn’t come down to the magic being light or dark, it’s the heart of the witch. It depends, as we go along and our powers intensify, who is going to slip to which side, which gives us a lot of places to go.

Have you read the books? Adam is a little bit different in the book than he is in the show?

That’s what I understand from Kevin (Williamson, executive producer) and that’s why I decided not to read the books. He’s read the books, obviously. But I came to him and I said, “I haven’t read the books,” when I got the job, and I said, “How much, legitimately, is this a carbon copy of the books? And how, knowing where you need this show to go, does this function as a TV show and not just a recant of the books? Do you want me to keep doing what I came up with just from the script or do you want me to get into that?” And we decided that for our universe – at this point at least – to go in our own direction. I don’t even know what the difference is. He’s probably taller, sexier and nicer.

He is tall, with red hair and grey eyes. He is very different. And the way he interacts with Cassie is a little different too.

So, basically you are saying that I’m not the character at all, that you don’t know why I am sitting here at all! It’s supposed to be Rupert Grint.

Congratulations

The Secret Circle has been picked up for a back nine episodes, as if there was any doubt. According to E Online, it is the top performer out of the three new CW shows this season which are Secret Circle, The Ringer and Hart of Dixie.

Who’s Hotter? (Thomas, duh).

The Fab Life have launched a poll for this week, putting The CW hotties Thomas & Ian Somerhalder up against one another. Go now and vote for Thomas, you know you want to!

The world would be a whole lot more boring without love triangles. “Dawson’s Creek,” Twilight, Original Flavor “90210,” “Felicity,” Pretty in Pink — the important dramas of our time all hinge on the torturous choice between two loves. And now we are forcing you into the same situation as you must choose between “Secret Circle” man-witch Thomas Dekker and “The Vampire Diaries” bad-boy-with-a-heart-of-gold Ian Somerhalder to determine who will be TheFABlife’s inaugural Hotness of the Week.

This is a very important decision, folks. You will have to hunker down and closely examine the galleries of these soulful-eyed CW babes below before casting your vote again and again. You will have to encourage your fellow Delena fanfic writers and/or your neighborhood coven to get in on the action. The winner will be anointed on Friday.

Read & vote in poll here.

  • Apologies for being away for a few days, things have been hectic and technology has once again been going wrong. I deserve it for following the future saviour of mankind it seems.
  • The official Angels Crest trailer is up for viewing on iTunes and will be available in the US on 25/11/2011. The page features a beautiful shot of Thomas and the trailer has previously unseen footage.
  • Shelley Hennig & Thomas Dekker Date Night: JustJaredJr posted a preview of next week’s (US) episode featuring an adorable still of Adam and Diana.
  • There’s a great little article about the upcoming episodes of The Secret Circle (containing spoilers for UK folks) from the Secret Circle section on Wetpaint.

    “The things that we discovered in ‘Loner’ on Dawn’s computer about Zachary and Heather Barnes, we cleverly start piecing a lot of things together — at least we think we’re piecing it together,” says Thomas. “Cassie and I go off and do our own thing without knowing what we’re doing and we think we’re doing something very good for this person, but we were very, very wrong.”

    Tonight’s episode will also explore Diana’s feelings towards Cassie’s and Adam’s friendship, and though you would think it’s their undeniable sexual tension that she would find troublesome, her true concerns are in regards to something entirely different.

    “In the episode, it’s the first time [Cassie and Adam] break away,” says Thomas. “And it’s interesting — one aspect of the show that I love is that Diana’s really good about not being jealous of the time Cassie and I spend together or even the looks that she might see. [But] she does not like when we do magic together, and there’s a reason for that, which we find out two weeks from now.”

TV Line reporter Matt Mitovich posted a great interview with the Secret Circle cast answering 6 burning questions.

Heather

 WHY IS ADAM WITH DIANA? DUDE SEEMS TOTALLY INTO CASSIE AND ALL | Says Thomas Dekker, “As we get to explore more of [the Adam/Diana] relationship, you’ll see why they’re together, how long they’ve been together and for what reasons.” Dekker says that Cassie’s arrival in town – and immediate draw to Adam — is “kind of a sad thing because he and Diana are in a comfortable, easy place, but there’s this spiritual pull that’s happening that is hard to ignore.” Besides, the tables could eventually be turned. As Dekker hints, “Maybe Diana has that [pull] with somebody else in the group?”

COULD JEALOUSY ULTIMATELY PUSH DIANA TO THE ‘DARK SIDE’? | Lord knows, Faye the Resident Bad Girl is determined to prod her gal pal about Adam ‘s closeness to Cass. For now, “Diana is the picture of goodness,” Dekker says, “but when these outside threats and forces enter the circle, it would be very easy to be manipulated. That’s what we’ve been warned, that any one of us at any time can be shifted to another side, which is very cool.” Whoa, even kindly Adam? “I may be Mr. Nice Guy, but that could change, too,” Dekker ventures.
ADAM’S DAD, ETHAN, WAS OBVIOUSLY VERY FOND OF CASSIE’S MOM. HEY, COULD HE BE CASSIE’S ACTUAL FATHER?! | Presented with our paternity switch theory, Dekker had to laugh. “That would be cool ,” he conceded. But seeing as how Cassie and Adam have been getting quite cozy, establishing then to be siblings “would be a whole other show!”

The Secret Circle premiered in the UK tonight on Sky Living, taking the Wednesday night 8pm slot. The show caused quite a buzz, as did Sky Atlantic’s showing of Cinema Verite last night. Thomas has been taking time out of his busy schedule to tweet in support of the projects also, so make sure you’re following him at @theThomasDekker.

Minor Updates have been made around the site here and there, including in the sidebar and this will continue over the next few weeks as part of the upgrade and revamp project.

Finally, Thomas recently spoke to Zap2It about his favourite things, The Secret Circle and his more adult projects.

…”Honestly, I find that any of these gives me a joy and a challenge in a different way,” he explains. “After some of the bold choices I made over the last two years, I wanted to do something with more mass appeal, something that is pleasing to a larger audience.”

…”It’s interesting to play this very masculine, very ‘American’ strong guy who is trying to keep order in this group and is not out so much for himself,” Dekker says. “He’s a simple guy from a simple town, but on top of that he is very in tune with these abilities and powers he was born with, and in order to conduct those properly, you have to be in tune with nature. You have to be gentle and spiritual and sensitive, so there were two opposing things there that you don’t often see in television, particularly in male roles.”

… In fact, during his hiatus from “Circle,” Dekker hopes to begin shooting a gritty indie film he wrote and directs about young people pursuing celebrity in Hollywood. He says it’s “graphic,” so don’t look for that on The CW anytime soon.

Favorite book: ” ‘Death in Venice’ by Thomas Mann. I just think it’s a beautiful piece on aging and beauty. I remember reading it twice in one sitting at Jerry’s Deli in Los Angeles, which is open 24 hours. I was there from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. and just couldn’t move from my seat. I love that book.”

Favorite movie: “David Lynch’s ‘Mullholland Dr.’ I have watched it more than any other movie and I don’t get tired of it. I love that it’s like 15 different movies in one, and yet David Lynch never loses control of it. It takes you to a place that you weren’t prepared for, and you don’t know how to walk away from it.”

Favorite record: “On the whole, I would say the album ‘Homogenic’ by Bjork. It’s composed musically of strings and beats that she created out of the volcanic eruptions and sounds of Iceland. To harness this sort of ‘wild,’ natural soundscape into electronica while writing these incredible complex and gorgeous string arrangements (is amazing). That album probably was the biggest influence on me. I realized that was the path I wanted to follow musically.”
