CM - Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to chat with us....
KY - Thank you very much for having me.
CM - You are a: Professional Athlete, Model, Actor, Director, and a philanthropist. What are you doing when you are not working?
KY - Sometimes work doesn't feel like work and I can keep going for weeks on end. Other times it becomes drab and I find myself searching for things that will relax me. Generally it's getting outside, riding bmx, playing disk golf or going on a motorcycle ride through the mountains that will do the trick.
CM - How did your love for the BMX culture come about?
KY - It's sort of always been there. I grew up riding bikes, raced when I was young and hung out with other bike riders. It was basically my whole life for a very long time. However, bmx culture isn't provincial. You meet so many different types of people who all have a love of riding bikes. Gay, straight; Latino, Black, Asian, White; Religious, Atheists, all types. It showed me how diverse we are, how unique peoples opinions are but oddly, how much we are the same when you boil things down.
CM - In the epic, critically acclaimed, and controversial sitcom, Sons of Anarchy, how was your experience working on this particular project as Greg "The Peg?"
KY - You said it, EPIC. Working on SOA was a blessing, not only because of the great people I had the chance to work with but because of the fans appreciation of the show. They are some of the most die-hard fans out there and they support you all the way. They love the show and the actors love them back.
CM - How was the energy on the set of Sons of Anarchy?
KY - The energy was playful and professional. We'd be chatting about random subjects and then would dive into a scene, playing with emotions and words. However, when we would film emotional taxing scenes everyone would quiet, respecting the places other actors had to go, allowing them to become extremely serious, menacing, dangerous. It was amazing to have the opportunity to work with everyone from the show.
CM - Is it a huge difference between being on a set like, Sons of Anarchy as opposed to being on a set of The Bold and The Beautiful? If so, how?
KY - SOA was hugely different for me. It was more like a family environment on the set of SOA. It sort of felt like a boys club. Unlike other sets this one was not for the faint of heart. Being politically correct on SOA's set would have been politically incorrect.
CM - You were seriously injured in a motorcycle accident while attending school - How has that changed your life and career in ALL fields?
KY - I don't know of a single way it hasn't changed my life, seriously.
