First TV Show
In 2005, he made his TV show debut in the I Am the Walrus episode of the drama series, Summerland.
While he was working in The Vampire Diaries, he had to be prepared throughout the season to take his shirt off. To prepare for this, in the best possible way, he was hitting the gym at least 5 times a week. His workout routine usually included strength training exercises, cardio sessions, and core work.
When he had to take his shirt off for his role, he upped his workout intensity and started doing more cardio to get the shredded look. He complements his workout with an active lifestyle.
He follows a healthy and high-protein diet. A couple of weeks before he has to show off his body, he starts watching his diet a bit more closely. In such circumstances, he snacks on apples, and bananas while shooting. He also makes sure that he is having protein shakes to help his body bear the burden of added workout intensity.
