On March 16 - a week after Melrose Place returns from a three-month hiatus and bids farewell to Colin Egglesfield and Ashlee Simpson - Nick Zano debuts on the primetime soap opera as Dr. Drew Pragin.
In a new interview with TV Guide Magazine, the actor dishes on this new role and the secret Drew is withholding...
On Drew Pragin: He’s a med student who just transferred from John Hopkins to ULA hospital and is working under Michael Mancini.
On his deep, dark secret: He certainly has an agenda. And he happens to fall in love... There’s definitely some love triangles happening. And it’s all moving very quickly.
On Drew and Lauren: Lauren is a very serious character. She doesn’t have much lightness in her, whereas Drew is very light. He treats being a doctor like most people treat being a waiter. He takes it all tongue in cheek. These are two personalities who clash.
On the show's new tone: The CW was nice enough to address some concerns and give the writers a chance to change the direction of the show instead of just giving it the axe, which is a lot easier these days. To their credit, the show was given time to redirect and find its feet. The energy of the show is definitely different.
