Mekai Curtis Biography – Mekai Curtis Wiki

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Curtis revealed that he was a big Power fan when he auditioned for the series.
He said: “I was a fan. My parents actually were the biggest fans and I kind of was sleeping on it for the first two seasons, but then I came around and I’ve been hooked ever since. So when I got the call to be a part of the universe myself, I lost it for a second.”
The actor did not know he was playing young Kanan Stark until his final audition. He said: “I literally had no knowledge that I was playing Kanan or it was Raising Kanan until my chemistry read, which was my last audition. Up until this point, we were using code names. I knew it was Power, so that was the thing I was excited about. I didn’t care, I just wanted to be on Power. So when they told me, “You’re going to play Kanan,” I was like, “Oh! Okay, all right.””
