Hi guys, my name is Jasper and I’m the new owner of Jack Falahee Web. Huge thanks to Emily for letting me take the site!

“I was nervous… It was my first time on a big set, on a network show.. She just said to me, ‘Hey look, less is more. You don’t wanna blow your load too early in the scene,’” the actor tells TheWrap of shooting his first episode with Davis
Jack Falahee entered the first season of “How to Get Away With Murder” with a resume that leaned toward indie movies and teen dramas–but 15 jawdropping episodes of the Shonda Rhimes and Pete Nowalk drama with more than a few steamy scenes later, he’s made his mark as Connor Walsh, a ruthless, duplicitous gay law student interning at Viola Davis‘ firm.
“Going into this, I was just thinking of the work and I didn’t think of it as so groundbreaking,” Falahee told TheWrap. “But seeing the response on Twitter, Instagram, social, and people coming up to me, it’s struck me right between the eyes how important this is. It’s 2015–it’s time for inclusive content.”
What was your favorite buzzy line from “How to Get Away With Murder?”
I think mine that we would all joke around with on set was the line that Connor says in the pilot when he tells Michaela (Aja Naomi King) to “stop acting like a little bitch baby.” I think that’s a pretty great piece of writing.
Connor has been a trailblazing role in terms of being one of the first really strong gay male characters on broadcast TV that also actually has a sex life on-screen. And now “Empire” followed suit as another broadcast TV show with a very strong gay male character. So with all the attention the role has brought to you, do you feel a bigger responsibility as Jack Falahee the actor?
I think that you know at the end of the day, going on to set everyday, I was just striving to do my best work and bring to life this character that Pete Nowalk so beautifully crafted. Really, it’s his doing and his words that are sort of jumping off the page and I think resonating with so many people inside and outside of the LGBTQ community. I think that yeah, there has to be a feeling of like a little bit of responsibility just because, well, I was going into it just approaching the work. I didn’t really think–maybe naively so–I didn’t really think that it was so groundbreaking. Maybe that’s because I don’t watch television or own a television, but just seeing and hearing the response on Twitter, Instagram on social and people coming up to me at restaurants after even just the pilot, it sort of struck me right between the eyes how important this is and to continue the dialogue and like you said, like “Empire” has similar characters and it’s becoming more inclusive on television. It’s 2015–it’s time for us to have inclusive content, you know even with trans characters beginning to show up on “Orange is the New Black” and “Transparent.” It’s time for equal representation and I think Pete and Shonda have for years– it hasn’t really been an agenda, it’s just been a fact that these people exist and should be shown on television.
