Interview: Nathan Fillion On The 100th Episode Of Castle

Nathan Fillion on the 100th Episode of 'Castle'
Castle’s 100th episode airs on April 1. How does that feel?
At my age, I don’t have a lot of “firsts” anymore, so this is very exciting. I’ve been acting a long time, and I finally have this milestone.

Your character is charming, intelligent, attractive. How much of him is you?
All the good parts—especially the good-looking part. That’s so me. [laughs] He also has flaws, so I think he’s easy to like. In all my characters, I try to find an iota of myself, and in Castle, I found a lot. He gets away with a lot, so that’s fun.

You got your first break on the soap opera One Life to Live. Is there camaraderie among former soap stars?
Absolutely. It’s like a secret society. We did a one-hour story every day with no hiatus, and it was incredibly challenging. I don’t think anyone else knows what hard work it is.

How do you like to spend your free time?
I like doing things where I can get dirty, work with my hands, and use power tools. Last weekend, I did some grouting.

Online Extra: What book is Nathan reading for the fifth time?
I’m actually reading World War Z again! It’s incredibly realistic and it’s written as an oral history through interviews with different characters. Max Brooks wrote this book in so many different voices. There are about forty or so. It’s incredible. When I finish World War Z I’m going to go back and start again on the Game of Thrones series.

You are the joy in my heart. You're the last person I want to see every night when I close my eyes. I love you, Katherine Beckett. And the mystery of you is the one I want to spend the rest of my life exploring.
