“I’ve known him for years,” de Metz reveals. “We’ve bumped into each other in Los Angeles for a long time now and I’ve actually auditioned against him for a couple of roles here and there, so I sent him a message on Instagram like, ‘Dude, how funny is this?’ I’m very excited for him.”
Delon also opened up about his unique audition process for the show. Because of the global pandemic that has been the coronavirus, Delon says that the auditions were done over Zoom with B&B casting director Chrisy Dooley and actress Kiara Barnes, who plays Zoe Buckingham on the show.
“It was very interesting,” de Metz relays. “This is the first time I had used Zoom with casting, or with an actress for a chemistry read, so that part of the process was definitely interesting and a unique experience for me.”
The actor also revealed that acting was never his first choice in life but ultimately changed his mind because of his mother. “I was a sophomore in high school, probably around 16, and she wanted me to go see an acting coach in advance to prep for college interviews,” he explains.
“She had me see a coach in New York, her name is Susan Batson, and after my first session, I was like, ‘Mom, this is really interesting. I think I might want to pursue this as a career.’ She said, ‘Delon, you get into Harvard, work hard, get a degree and then you can do whatever you want.’ That was pretty much the agreement: Get in, go, do my thing, and then if I wanted to pursue acting, I’d have the full support of the family.”
