VIDEO EXCLUSIVE: Christian Convery & Nonso Anozie Reveal Their Favorite ‘Sweet Tooth’ Scene
Sweet Tooth stars Christian Convery and Nonso Anozie revealed their favorite scenes from the new Netflix series in their new uInterview.
The series takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where human-animal children are being hunted by adults. The story follows Gus, a part-deer part-boy hybrid, played by Convery, and his unlikely ally Tommy Jepperd, played by Anozie, as they traverse what is left of America in search of answers.
Convery called his character Gus “innocent” and “hopeful.” “He’s always so curious because he’s always lived in the woods secluded with his father and he’s never seen another human before and I really feel like that helps bring out the relationship between Jepperd and Gus,” he said.
Anozie called Jepperd “a man with a lot of different layers.” “He’s learnt to survive by being really gruff and really tough, but somehow he bumps into Sweet Tooth, Gus, played by Christian, and they form this bond, they start to gradually form this bond,” he said. “I should say, Gus starts to chip away at Jepperd’s hard exterior with his optimism and hope.”
Their favorite scenes?
“If I had to choose one, it’s probably when we’re running to catch up to a train, but then he falls trying to catch up but then it’s like one of those dramatic moments where he just gets back up. Getting to film that scene was so fun because you know we got to run on treadmills together and it was put on the green screen,” said Convery.
“I loved that too, I mean I really loved the action stuff,” Anozie agreed, “but there’s a part of the TV show that I liked, which comes towards probably right at the last episode, which is my favorite scene to film with Christian, but I can’t really talk about it because it’s gonna give away so much.”
