Violence Begets Violence – Todd Stashwick On What Made Deacon A Sociopath

In a new 12 Monkeys behind-the-scenes video from Syfy, actor Todd Stashwick talks about the violent past of his character of Deacon and how the abuse he suffered at the hands of his father lead him to being a sociopath. It's a rather interesting take on the character as the actor believes Deacon fears the abusive nature in himself but is in a way grateful to his father, for his abuse has prepared him to live in a post-apocalyptical environment. He hates the man for the things he did to his mother, brother and himself but also sees similarities in himself. It's a pretty deep and disturbing realization that Stashwick refers to as a 'snake that eats its own tail'.
