Trivia and Quotes

  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Jason: My favorite on screen moments are when you are really there and you know you're creating something. That's so exciting…it's why you come to work.

    • Jason: (On his wife's reaction to the attention he's getting from female fans) Oh it's no problem, I don't know. It's not like I'm sleeping with any of those fans,, ha ha, so I don't think it's too much of a problem for my wife. We're just fantastic friends so it's cool.

    • Jason: (On Josef from "Moonlight") I was immediately fascinated with the character. Very, very, very sharp, you know? I don't know, very keen, has a very hard edge. And I'm starting to get how Josef walks with references to past vampires, they're just a little more graceful and aware of their movement, more awareness of how they are perceived.

    • Jason: I began acting at age eight, but if you don't stay on your game then people pass on you. Being on a show, it's a little easy to get comfortable, so I'm trying to get back on it. I'm taking some acting classes and watching movies, and I'm just trying to stay up with other actors.

    • Jason: I feel for [the character] Veronica Mars [from the show of the same name] so much when I'm watching at home. It is a wonderful story. The writing is consistently funny, biting, charming, heart-wrenching, etc. I also like the look of it. The cinematography - different from any other show.

    • Jason: It sucks to be the runner-up because I've been the runner-up for a long time in my career. I would get so close and then lose a huge movie and sometimes it's one kid who beats you out for three different movies. It's so frustrating at the time, but what's so great is the lesson you take from that, which is, 'I've got to get better.' It forces you to be so good that even if you don't look right for the part, they don't take the guy who looks right because they have to have you.

    • Jason: (What he hopes for the rest of his career) To be the best - that's the goal.

    • Jason: I love the creating part of taking on a character. It is fun to be another person and create what it would be like to be that person.

    • Jason: I would love to do more movies. I'd like to get into some theater, too, if I could, just to learn more. I want to do gritty performances that I'm proud of. It doesn't matter to me if four people see it or millions of people see it, as long as I perform in such a way that people go, 'Wow!'

  • He's really good actor!!

    First time I sow Jason Dohring in Moonlight. In this show he act vampire - Josef Kostan. He is the best friend of Mick St.John and he is about four hundred years ago. Jason as a vampire Josef is very easy-going and inteligent. When Mich has a problem he please Kostan to help him. In Moonlight Jason and Alex as a brothers :):)

    I think that Jason Dohring is very talented actor and OF COURS really HANDSOME :):)

    I heared that he act in Veronica Mars too, but I have never seen this shows. I think I should :D

    I hope that in the future I will see Jason in many films. For exemple in II season of Moonight.moreless
  • Never knew of Jason prior to Moonlight...

    ...but once I started watching Moonlight I really began to like his character Josef, and thought there was much more potential to the character than the first episodes allowed for. Sleeping Beauty gave a glimpse into the deeper Josef but Fated to Pretend was a grand slam!

    The best scenes in that episode were with "Mick" and "Josef" and really solidify the relationship the two characters have in an up-to-now hidden back story. It has put their past into perspective and set up for what will hopefully be a great second season.

    I did also find Veronica Mars in reruns and while the story is a bit young for me, Jason plays a real jerk with amazingly the same likability present for Josef.

    I think this young man has a great future ahead of him...but for now I just want to see more Josef vamped out!moreless
