Graham recently opened up about the experience, as well as how he plans to play Prince Eric, in an interview with Playbill.

“Even though Little Mermaid is in front of a camera, it’s live, so there’s no room for pussyfooting around. You really have to commit,” he explained.

“In the film [Prince Eric]’s such a blank slate; he doesn’t even sing. Getting to learn these new songs and understand his perspective a little more was very cool,” he said.

He also said that the role has inspired him to return to theater.

“For quite a while I’ve felt like something was missing, and I’ve realized that it’s singing, so my sights are definitely set on getting back on Broadway. I’ve been missing it for a long time.”
