"She is a little beauty and we couldn't be prouder. She is named after Heather's mother Beatrice and Paul's auntie Milly. Our immediate family were told the news right away and are all as overjoyed as we are at the early arrival of our little bundle of joy." -Paul and Heather Mills McCartney, 2003
What was it like to step into a totally new role after playing Todd Manning?
Exciting and refreshing. There are so many things about Franco that make him compelling. He is smart, has a great sense of humor, he is creative and very sweet in a weird way. I was excited to get a new set of toys.
What do you bring to the character that is different than James Franco?
I think I am taller. [Laughter] I sense that back then it was necessary to be a darker prince. While Franco is still pretty much a lunatic, I think the new writers have a different take on his character.
What story lines are you most excited about?
If I had to choose one it would be really hard. I think that Franco and Carly have a lot of potential -- I can't wait to see what they come up with there. Franco and Heather are interesting. Franco and Diane are interesting.
Do you think this friendship with Britt will develop into something more?
I do, otherwise what have we been doing over the last couple of months. [Laughter] Nikolas was lucky to fall in the graces of Britt.
Why is Nikolas so protective over Britt?
I think he thinks that she gets a bad wrap. She is the victim of some inaccurate and wrongful opinions.
