Personal Quote:

[on being cast in bad guy roles] I enjoy villains. I've figured out how to get paid for doing what they tried to throw me in jail for when I was a kid. Besides, I'm never going to be the boy next door. That's not who I want to be. So I try to put a little of the dark side into my good guys and a bit of gentleness into my heavies.

Trivia:

He took his mother's family name, Drago, because another actor in SAG had the name Burrows. See more »

Trademark:

Evil eyes and smile

Star Sign:

Sagittarius
