Tell us about yourself. When did you know acting was what you wanted to pursue as a career?
That’s a hard questions (laughs). I’m just a regular guy, I love music and I’ve always been into movies. I just love stories that reach and grab people. When I started, I didn’t know where I wanted to be in life. Coming out here and pursuing my career gave me a chance to find my passion. I really love all aspects of this industry from the writing to being able to see it all be made. I couldn’t see myself doing anything else.
How would you describe your experience thus far as Connor Hawke in The CW’s Arrow?
It’s been great! It’s sad that the show is coming to an end. For us new kids, we’re building bonds and now it’s sad cause it’s coming to an end. It’s bittersweet but gaining new friends and being apart of something this special means a lot to me.
Are there any upcoming projects you could give us insight into?
There are a lot of projects that I’m working on. I have a handful of passion projects. I’m working on an animated series. I am also writing a feature film with a friend. Luckily, I’ll have a few months off before things start back up again. Overall, I’m excited to bring these passion projects to life!
What can we expect to see from Joseph David-Jones in the future?
Hopefully, a lot of great work. We’ll see what happens with The Green Arrow. Hopefully there is room for me in the Universe.
