From SCI FI Wire:
Eric Johnson, who stars as the title character in SCI FI Channels upcoming series Flash Gordon, told reporters that he feels a connection with the character and his journey of personal growth.
"The thing that's really standing out for me about this version of Flash is that it's really about him coming into his own," Johnson said. "I mean, when the series starts he's living with his mom. It's about stepping up and being all that you can be. And really, for me, I think that's what this series is bringing to me in my personal life, is just stepping up and embodying everything that I've always wanted to. And at this part of my life, it's a tremendous gift to have this going on at that time."
