Edge

Since retiring from WWE in 2011, Edge has immersed himself in acting and become a regular on the Syfy series “Haven" (Fridays at 10/9 CT). WWE.com recently caught up with the WWE Hall of Famer to find out what other cool and creative things he's been up to. You think you know him? Read on …

WWE.COM: When WWE.com interviewed you back in 2011, when you were just starting out acting on “Haven,” you talked about the fun you were having. How have things changed on the set since then? Are you still having fun?

EDGE: That matches everything I feel now. I do still really, really enjoy it. It’s fun. That’s the most important thing at this point in my life. Anything I do is going to have to be fun. As taxing as the WWE schedule was, it was still fun. It was still the ultimate gig for me. So if I was going to do something else, number one, it has to be creative. Number two, it’s just going to have to be fun. I worked hard all those years to be able to have that luxury. It really is a luxury to be able to do something that you enjoy because then it doesn’t feel like a job. It doesn’t feel like work.

WWE.COM: How have things changed on the set since 2011?

EDGE: I’ve taken [acting] classes to try and improve, because if I do something, I don’t want to half-ass it. Initially, my goal was that I don’t want to embarrass myself. And then as I started to feel more comfortable and really realize that this is something that I do enjoy, I decided that I didn’t want to just be a good actor for a wrestler, I just want to be a good actor.
