Diego Klattenhoff

Interview: Robert Piper

Robert Piper: What inspires you?

Diego Klattenhoff: It is hard not to be inspired when you’re living in New York. It doesn’t matter what you do. I think that there is so much going on in this city. I like walking around or taking the subway, thinking about all the history here, looking at the architecture and all the people; of course, the museums. It’s tough to find a better place to live.

RP: How do you stay healthy?

DK: I go to the gym as much as possible.

RP: What is the hardest obstacle you’ve had to overcome in your life?

DK: I think it is always tough no matter where you are in your journey. Always staying focused and knowing why you are doing what you are doing.

RP: How do you deal with overcoming failure?

DK: Everyone fails. Everyone is constantly failing. It is all part of life, and especially this job of being an actor. I think it is important to know when to be hard on yourself and when to let things go, but always keep going.

RP: What projects are you currently working on?

DK: Besides The Blacklist, I have a film that I will be working on, but it is currently a closely guarded secret, so you will just have to wait and see .
