His publicist, Eric Blake spoke about the young actor’s insecurities concerning his looks. “He was very insecure about his looks,” Blake told the Mail. “He had a very square jawline and chin and he didn’t like the shape of it because he thought it was too wide and wanted a V-shape, the shape many Asians have.”
