Thomas Doherty isn’t just the boy next door!
The 24-year-old actor recently opened up to Teen Vogue about his upcoming role in High Strung: Free Dance.
In the movie, Thomas plays Zander, a “dazzling young choreographer” who works with dancer Barlow (played by Juliet Doherty — who isn’t related to Thomas) and pianist Charlie (Harry Jarvis) on Broadway’s highly anticipated musical, Free Dance.
Thomas revealed that he originally auditioned to play Charlie before he landed the role of Zander, who Thomas describes as “an egotistical madman.”
“I wasn’t right for Charlie but I was right for Zander,” he said, before explaining that Zander is very different from the “boy-next-door kind of characters” he’s played in the past.
“Zander’s quite a complex character,” Thomas said. “He’s nothing like me. I’m quite a chill, laid-back person, but he’s focused, on, and very ambitious. He’s passionate about his dancing and choreographing.”
High Strung: Free Dance is a sequel to 2016’s High Strung and is set to hit theaters October 11th.
