When asked about how he got the job, Rory told the publication that the first thought he had was how impressed he was with the cast. He said, “This was my first TV screen test and I remember having a bit of nerves and just not wanting to screw this up. The second Joshua [Morrow, Nick] and Cait [Fairbanks, Tessa] walked in the room, they had such a cool, calm energy about them that was very welcoming and all of the nerves immediately went away. I did mess up a little bit and Josh totally saved my butt. I dropped one line in front of all of the producers and staff, and without thinking about it, he turned around to them and was like, ‘That was my fault. Sorry, guys.’”

His first day on the job is also one that he will certainly never forget. He said, ““I was filled with an overwhelming sense of excitement and then surprised at how kind and easygoing everyone was. I knew they worked fast, so I went in thinking, ‘You have one shot to get this right. Don’t mess it up,’ and sure enough, I messed it up, but the director said, ‘It’s not a big deal.’ I looked around and no one cared. Everyone was so cool.”
