Howard Charles is Porthos: Howard is the least experienced actor of the gang, having only appeared in the independent Netherlands movie '&Me', TV fantasy movie 'Black Forest' and an episode of 'Switch', but he seems pretty switched on about his new major role as the exceedingly passionate but deeply troubled warrior Porthos. He talks about the heavy influence Alexandre Dumas' father, a General in the French army, had on creating his Porthos character. 'There weren't many mixed-race people around in uniform, so of course I was really attracted to that element', he says, and revealed that he prepared for role by reading 'The Black Count' by Tom Reiss, which was about the life of Alexandre Dumas Senior.
