AE: Now, Danny seems like someone who’s not just evolving, but we definitely are seeing more of him, too. Early on in the series, did you know much about Danny? Did you know he was a gay character?
KK: In Episode One or Two of Season 1 you find out that Danny is gay. I think there’s a conversation between Coach (Orny Adams) and Scott (Tyler Posey) that Scott’s having some issues, and Coach says, ‘You can talk about anything. Are you gay? Danny’s gay.’ That kind of sets the scene that Danny isn’t there to show the audience that he’s not another story of going through a coming out process. You can skip all that and just figure out who he is. There wasn’t a whole lot to learn about him in the first season. You figure out that he’s a geek and he has kind of a hacker past. He’s also well-liked by everyone. Obviously, this season there’s been a lot more revealed. Actually, Monday’s episode will let you even know a little bit more.
AE: What do we find out about Danny in the ‘Frenemy’ episode?
KK: We find out how much he is involved with what’s going on with the Kanima, how it relates to Jackson and whether or not Danny can or will help the situation.

Q: Is there anything about the role that you find challenging?
A: I always find it a great luxury to have good writing, and I do, so the challenge is always to sort of rise to the level of the material as opposed to having to kill yourself and work to make the material work. This material is good on its own, so I just have to come and be present and the rest of it takes care of itself.
Q: What do you think it is about the show that really continues to draw in so many viewers?
A: I think what it is, is just the writing is really good. I think the writing is good, I think the cast is good, and I think the entire production is incredibly deep. I’ve done a lot of series in my life and this one is a family, and that starts from the top down. That starts from Jeff Davis and then from Tyler (Posey) and Dylan and Crystal and Holland and Tyler (Hoechlin) and Colton, and it almost feels like everybody leaves their ego at home. They come to work and we have a great time. What makes it different, what makes it good is it’s about werewolves, I suppose, but below that it’s about coming of age, it’s about relationships, and it’s about things that we all know and can relate to and care about. It’s filled with characters that you can root for, and it’s done intelligently. It’s not simple issues. I think that is sort of what sets it a bit apart. I’ve got to tell you, when I first was presented with the project and I thought, “Teen Wolf” and I thought of the Michael J. Fox film, which was a great film at the time, but a totally different piece of film making. This has so little to do with that, and that’s what’s great about it, and I think that’s really what sets it apart, is the relationships and the people that you care about and investing in these characters.
