On the new ABC drama series Forever, Doctor Henry Morgan (Ioan Gruffudd) is hiding a big secret. New York City’s star medical examiner not only studies the dead to solve criminal cases, but also to look for answers as to why he’s been alive for 200 years. With the help of his best friend and confidant, Abe (Judd Hirsch), who is the only one that knows his secret, Henry’s remarkable observation skills are proving to be quite useful for Detective Jo Martinez (Alana De La Garza), but they’re also raising questions and curiosity.
During this exclusive interview with Collider, actor Ioan Gruffudd talked about how he got involved with Forever, keeping the element of danger when your character can never die, the awkwardness of always coming back to life naked, working with Judd Hirsch, Henry’s mysterious enemy, and not needing to know all of the answers. Check out what he had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.
