“Desperate Housewives'” Ryan Carnes on filming ‘The Phantom’
By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith
HollywoodNews.com: Syfy premieres its four-hour event movie “The Phantom” on Sunday (6/20) — with all involved in the modern reboot of the classic comic book tale anxiously awaiting viewer response, which will determine whether the dark super hero will be brought back for a full-on series. It’s an attractive if daunting prospect for 27-year-old hottie Ryan Carnes (“Desperate Housewives”), who’s taken on the role of Kit Walker — actually, the son of the comic book Kit Walker — a promising law student yanked out of his life in a terrible way and confronted with a future that entails taking over the Phantom persona.
“I had a great time. It was by far the most rewarding experience of my career, the biggest, the most responsibility I’ve had as an actor. I ate it up. I loved it,” he says.
But it wasn’t easy. “The three weeks we were on night shooting, about two-thirds of the way through the shoot, were the hardest for me,” says Carnes. “We’d been shooting 15, 16 hour days, but when we switched to nights, I felt like I was losing myself at times. The body is not made to be up all night. Your hormones are all over the place and it’s easier to get depressed. But I think it served to help in my performance. Kit was feeling exhausted, confused and unsure about what was happening in his life. I felt much the same way,” he explains with a laugh.
