Froy Gutierrez tells Teen Wolf News that Nolan is one of the more complex characters we've seen on Teen Wolf.
- “Nolan is frail, both mentally and physically, so I ended up losing 15 pounds while I was playing him. I stopped doing muscle training at the gym and only worked on cardio. Most of the preparation for Nolan, however, was mental. I had to go to some dark places in my mind to bring out honest moments.

His only real motive is to stop feeling alone, which makes him the perfect pawn for the larger, darker forces at work in Beacon Hills.
