‘The White Lotus’ Star Adam DiMarco Is aware of Why Portia Isn’t Into Albie

Albie Di Grasso is a pleasant, good-looking younger man. This a lot, everybody on The White Lotus season two can agree. The character, performed by 32-year-old Adam DiMarco, is a Stanford grad on a tense journey to Sicily along with his old style grandfather, Bert (F. Murray Abraham), and his philandering Hollywood exec father, Dominic (Michael Imperioli). The remainder of his household bailed after studying about his dad’s many infidelities.

Within the face of Bert and Dominic’s dangerous conduct, Albie tries to course-correct by being extraordinarily respectful to ladies, generally to his personal detriment. He takes a selected curiosity in Portia (Haley Lu Richardson), the long-suffering private assistant to Tanya (Jennifer Coolidge) … and swiftly will get rejected in favor of the extra aggressive British hooligan, Jack (Leo Woodall). However by episode 4, he’s caught the attention of the scrappy and charming native intercourse employee, Lucia (Simona Tabasco), who, unbeknownst to Albie, has already seen his father a couple of occasions. Mamma mia!

Adam DiMarco hopped on a name with GQ to psychoanalyze Albie, inform us about watching The Godfather for the primary time in Sicily, and talk about whether or not or not Albie has any recreation.

GQ: I heard the resort was haunted.

Adam DiMarco: Allegedly.

Allegedly.

It’s a very previous resort and it was a convent. I heard Jon Gries [who plays Greg] telling this story of a nightmare he had and I simply couldn’t imagine it as a result of I had the very same nightmare two nights earlier than. There’s this bald man who was strolling backwards and forwards and approached the foot of our mattress and grabbed us. I awoke screaming and I didn’t actually assume something of it till Jon talked about his story. I used to be like, “Okay, I’ve by no means had any paranormal experiences. Apart from that, I assume.” It was simply so bizarre that the tales corroborated so cleanly.

Effectively, congrats on the present. What appealed to you about Albie?

I acquired the fabric and instantly linked to Albie. There have been a whole lot of similarities between us and clearly the present’s fucking wonderful. It’s very uncommon that you just get an opportunity to do a second season of one thing that’s already been established—and established as nice. The largest no-brainer of my life.

Had you seen the primary season?

I had watched the primary episode, however I used to be in a bizarre headspace and I didn’t know if the present would exacerbate that headspace. I used to be like, “I want to look at The Bachelor.” I went again to complete it after I acquired the audition, then I binge-watched the entire present and I used to be simply going round telling everybody, “you guys gotta watch The White Lotus.” It was months too late. Everybody was like, “yeah, we’ve accomplished it.”

The identical factor occurred to me after I was in Sicily, as a result of I lastly watched The Godfather for the present. Meghann Fahy [who plays Daphne] and I watched it after which we have been simply going round to everybody: “Have you ever guys seen The Godfather? It’s actually good.” And everybody was like, “yeah, we all know this.”
