'Lawfully His' has now been released, and hot-shot New York lawyer Evan King is out there now. One of my favourite characters, I've made no secret of the fact that he was inspired by my
|Gabriel Macht as Harvey Specter|
Evan King - my very own Harvey Specter - is hot, handsome, a little bit arrogant, all the things that Harvey Specter has been during the five and a half seasons of 'Suits', but I took that inspiration, and I created Evan King. I made him a little more lost, at times. A touch more vulnerable. Possibly even a little more arrogant.
But, as with the character of Harvey Specter, there's a lot more to Evan King than is first teased. Yes, he's a cocky son-of-a-bitch. He's had it easy. Anything he wants - especially women - fall at his feet, he has money, and plenty of it, he runs his own law firm, and he's good at what he does, he's great, at what he does. But Evan King has secrets. Demons. A past not many people know about. And for years he's hidden behind that arrogance and that cocky facade in order to block out things he doesn't want to face up to. So when Lola Burrows walks into his world, from the get-go she's a challenge. She's different. She's not like the others, and she doesn't make his life easy. And when he slowly realises that what she's really doing is making him face up to everything he's tried to forget doesn't exist for way too long, does he take that step forward and finally face those things head on? Or does he continue to bury his head in the sand? Because he likes his life just the way it is, doesn't he...?
