What characters most interest you? “Much like real life, it depends on what I’m in the mood for, ” says Lockhart. “Some days I like to play tortured souls searching for the meaning of life. Other days I want to be the class clown with a few lines. I tend to gravitate to physical roles, or maybe I just bring lots of physicality to the roles that are given to me.”
