Daredevil's Charlie Cox Relates to His Character's Faith

Daredevil's Charlie Cox Relates to His Character's Faith

Charlie Cox looks handsome while posing for the cover of Men’s Fashion magazine‘s Spring 2015 issue, available on April 13.

Here is what the 32-year-old Daredevil actor had to share with the mag:

On relating to his character’s faith: “I’m Catholic as well, so there’s that struggle and conflict shared between us… I wanted to have a superhero that is vulnerable. What I find most interesting is the inner struggle between who he feels he needs to be and who God wants him to be.”

On his physical transformation: “It was a tall order, because they were well aware that I was only 160 pounds. I’ve never eaten this much in my life! I’ve had to wolf down a huge amount of carbohydrates and protein and have seven meals a day – before and after doing so much heavy lifting.”

On wanting to play Freddie Mercury: “What an interesting man. What a painful time he lived in as a homosexual and an icon, battling AIDS in media but beloved by so many. He paved the way for a movement. He was a pioneer.”

FYI: Charlie is wearing Burberry on the cover.
