“By the time I came back, I was kind of a seasoned veteran I’d done a lot of different types of projects and stuff.”

Speaking to, he added: “And so it was nice to step back into that character set back into that show with a newly acquired confidence.

“But it was also very bizarre, I couldn’t believe that they call me back.

However, the actor couldn’t wrap his head around the comeback as he confessed: “But it was very strange.”

Despite his depiction of a villain, Marcus shared he had a love for starring in romantic comedies.

“When I go home at the end of the day after doing like a thriller or something I’m a lot more exhausted emotionally than I am falling in love but the preparation is the same.”

Marcus added: “It’s just a lot of different ways people can fall in love and it’s fun to explore that.”
