The 33-year old has dominated on both stage and screen, with his latest challenge placing him in the heart of Hell's Kitchen as titular superhero Matt Murdock, a blind lawyer better known to comic book fanatics as vigilante ' The Man Without Fear,' in Netflix's hit series, comics, so I read the scripts, and that gave me a real sense of who this character was and which version of Matt Murdock he was.
In the preparation period, I went and started reading all of the comics, and I was able to find certain writers or certain illustrators or certain runs that I think represented the show really well.
I kind of focused in once I discovered the Frank Miller ' Man Without Fear,' the Frank Miller ' Born Again,' and even Joe Quesada’s ' Guardian Devil' which is totally in the right place. I’d always go back to the comics and always go back to the panels and any moment in the script that I didn’t quite understand, it’s almost always in the comic somewhere.
Going into a second season, has the load felt lighter on preparation for choreography, stunts, and portraying a blind man?
In the first season, I was constantly trying to get into shape.
When I got the job, I had a month until we started shooting, and I was trying to get into the gym every day and trying to learn this choreography and trying to learn the blindness and the accent. For the second season, I had a much better grasp of all of those things.
Charlie Cox: It was really great to kind of play with Matt's vulnerability from that point of view.
