TJ could be throughout the ocean for Manifest season 3, however Olive has a brand new college pupil to puzzle by means of the historic artifacts with: her father’s newest analysis assistant Levi, performed by actor Will Peltz. Begrudgingly at first, Levi accepts Olive’s assist with all of the Al-Zuras materials coming in from TJ’s investigation in Egypt, one thing she labored on again in season two. The pair appear destined to bond regardless of their rocky begin, and Peltz gave us some perception into the most recent character on the present.
Peltz welcomed the prospect to play a personality whose intentions are good regardless of his preliminary conceitedness within the newest episode of Manifest. “The cool thing about Levi and what really attracted me to the character was that he’s not stereotypical and he’s not just this one dimensional character,” he says. “I feel like this character could be just this… brainy, super-intelligent, nerdy guy — and he has that side to him which is what made me love the character especially so much — but I think he also has this other edgy little bit of an attitude. It was nice to do something fresh… I’m often playing a dick, and it was nice to get away from that and be at least somewhat of a nice guy.”
Peltz is not any stranger to sci-fi hybrids comparable to Manifest, having been in time journey romance motion pictures like Time Freak and dystopian thrillers like In Time. “I love sci-fi so much,” he admits. “I love a good hybrid, especially if there’s sci-fi involved. There was this weird part of my career where… everything I do has technology in it. I don’t know why. Through In Time, there was this whole theme, and then I did this horror movie Unfriended. There were all these technological aspects to everything I did which crossed over into the whole sci-fi thing. But I love it! It’s very enjoyable for me.”
Although Levi revives the historic angle of the prophetic callings in Manifest, Peltz himself is experiencing the thriller alongside the viewers, however he appreciates with the ability to benefit from the present from the within. “Kind of peeking behind the curtain, instead of eating the meal I get to enjoy helping to prepare the meal, which is its own pleasure. That would be the closest thing,” Peltz says. “But I totally get to enjoy it in my own way, and it’s so cool to be part of this whole thing.”
