Sinqua Walls Talks About His Breakthrough Role as Lancelot in Once Upon a Time and How He Intends to Portray a Knight Who Shines From the Inside Out by Diane J. Reed.
Please Note: Interview contains discussion and minor spoilers about the direction season two may take with Lancelot's character.
Ever experience that moment when goosebumps skitter down your spine because you suddenly realize you’re in the presence of someone who’s going to be a big star? Of course not! Because generally, most of us don’t stumble across Julia Roberts or Denzel Washington before they hit it big. That is, unless you’re lucky enough to call Sinqua Walls for an exclusive phone interview prior to the airing of Season 2.
With his combination of charisma, discipline, and razor-sharp intelligence, it became clear to me that this is a man who’ll go far. Add to that a rare and endearing humility, and Sinqua will probably have future audiences eating out of his hand. We’re delighted he took the time to chat with us and to give us a glimpse of why Once Upon a Time cast him as the iconic “perfect” knight of the Round Table whose tragic flaws provided us with fascinating fodder for conversation.
