Poppy Drayton and Austin Butler chat up their new show, The Shannara Chronicles, during the panel during the 2016 Television Critics Association Press Tour at Langham Hotel on Wednesday afternoon (January 6) in Pasadena, Calif.

The two actors were joined by co-stars John Rhys-Davies, Ivana Baquero, Manu Bennett, plus executive producers Al Gough, Miles Millar, Jon Favreau, Jonathan Liebesman, and executive producer/author Terry Brooks.

“We do think there’s a real appetite for the show. It’s based on a classic book series, and we think it works on cable. It works for binge-watching. It’s very accessible on all platforms,” Miles shared while speaking with press.

John added, “It’s not mined out. Plus, this material has real history. Our writer started this in 1976!”

Austin Butler Opens Up About 'Shannara' Elf Ears, Adventures with Vanessa Hudgens, & More!

Austin Butler Opens Up About 'Shannara' Elf Ears, Adventures with Vanessa Hudgens, & More!

We are SO excited to see Austin Butler as the leading man in the new MTV series The Shannara Chronicles tonight!

The 24-year-old actor was the star of Just Jared Spotlight‘s December 2015 cover story, so let’s take a look at some of the highlights from the interview:

On wearing elf ears for the role: “The elf ears you get really used to. They take about 45 minutes to put them on. So I would get picked up at my apartment at like 3 a.m. because you have to get on set early before the sun has risen. So that was the hard part… It was amazing how well they stuck on because I had to do scenes where I’m swimming or I’ve just fallen off a horse or I’m in a lake and the ears stayed on. It’s amazing what they can do with prosthetics.”

On skills he learned for the show: “I did a lot of sword fighting training out there. And I don’t get to show it off that much in this season. But I had done Kali as a kid, which is Filipino stick fighting. So I kind of have a background in it and I ended up learning how to do all these cool things. So maybe if we do another season, I’ll get to show those off a little bit more.”

On his recent road trip with girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens: “Oh it was amazing! We went from New York to LA. I got to meet so many unique people that I would have never gotten to meet otherwise. And I noticed that when I’m road tripping, I have the sense that it’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey. And I think it’s symbolic in a way and it teaches so many lessons to me just to carry in life. It’s just glorious.”

That same day, Austin posted an inspiring message on Instagram.

“This bathroom mirror has a message for you. It’s easy in this day and age of airbrushed magazines and plastic surgery to get the feeling that you are not enough,” Austin wrote. “Some of you may be blessed with the gift of unconditional confidence and self-love (which is so awesome!), but for the rest of us, I just want to say: you are beautiful, exactly how you are, stay true to yourself, and as much as you can, deeply realize that YOU ARE ENOUGH. You’re the only you that will ever walk this earth. So go out there and create, explore, have fun, and make it count. Oh, and…you look great! Happy Tuesday!”
