Felix Mallard is the hot young star of the new CBS comedy series Happy Together and we’re getting to know him with these 10 Fun Facts!

Here are the 10 Fun Facts:

  • 1. Music is a huge passion of mine, I’m a massive fan of Jimi Hendrix and loads of classic rock and blues.
  • 2. I was an avid fencer for years and used to compete at national competitions back home in Australia.
  • 3. I was born in South Australia but was raised from a very young age in Melbourne.

  • 6. I learned Italian at school and absolutely loved the language, I wouldn’t say I’m entirely fluent just yet but I definitely try and keep up hahah.
  • 7. I’m a huge fan of standup and didn’t quite realize how much I watched before working with the legend that is Damon Wayans Jr! I love watching loads of comedy specials, with both modern and classic comics and definitely need to start going to more comedy clubs around LA!
  • 8. My family is spread out between England and all across Australia! Both my mum and dad were born in the north of England and moved over to Australia at different times in their lives.
  • 9. I love a good cup of coffee! Folks from Melbourne have a reputation as being coffee snobs and I didn’t quite realize how picky I was before moving to LA hahah.
  • 10. The best live gig I’ve ever been to was an incredible band called La Dispute – they came to Melbourne a few years ago and they had the most relentless energy and raw emotion that I’d ever seen in a performance, I was absolutely blown away.

Catch the series premiere of Happy Together on CBS tonight (October 1) at 8:30pm ET/PT.
