The final time Adam DiMarco traveled to Italy, the Disney Channel boyfriend turned HBO star was filming The White Lotusby which the actor performed the extremely scammable and softly poisonous Albie Di Grasso, whom we final noticed wiring €50,000 of his (daddy’s) cash to “rescue” his love curiosity, Lucia, from intercourse work. The older Di Grassos are brazenly skirt-chasers and serial cheaters; against this, DiMarco performed a quintessential “good man” with a smattering of soft-core pink flags, e.g., his choice for “fairly wounded birds.” You may argue that every one the Di Grasso males deserve artichokes to the pinnacle, however did the youngest of the triad need to get performed? Nicely, sure. Perhaps. DiMarco, who’s at the moment in Milan for the Prada males’s present, thinks the scrumptious rip-off was a chance for younger Albie to be taught, develop, and “develop some wholesome belief points.”

Prada is DiMarco’s first main trend present. “I’ve been a fan of Prada for some time now, so I’m honored that they’re my first,” says the actor, who caught up with me over the telephone the Saturday earlier than the occasion. “However perhaps as a result of I’m Italian, I’m biased.” DiMarco is jet-lagged after we discuss, having solely not too long ago arrived in Milan, however whereas he’s there, he’s excited to reunite with different White Lotus stars, see the sights, and up his seems with some procuring. (He’s feeling “like a bum” in trendy Milan.) The Minimize spoke to DiMarco about his Italian return, Albie’s pure coronary heart, and what it’s prefer to be on the opposite finish of the enduring Debby Ryan meme.

You’re at the moment in Milan for the Prada males’s present. How are you feeling?
I don’t know what to anticipate, however I’m very excited. I’ve all the time been into trend and curious in regards to the trend world, so I’m trying ahead to getting a peek behind the scenes. However my baggage hasn’t arrived, so I’m hoping to get my outfit earlier than the present. All the time keep it up, ? I’m studying classes left and proper. However I’m monitoring my baggage on an Apple AirTag, and I can see it’s right here in Milan. So I feel it’ll all work out.

You’ve talked about not too long ago getting your Italian citizenship. What are some belongings you take pleasure in doing in Milan?
I bought my passport, is what they name it, a number of years in the past. My dad had gotten his and inspired me to get mine. I’m glad I did, as a result of I bought to make use of it final yr whereas filming in Sicily. It’s simply cool having two passports. You’re feeling such as you’re Jason Bourne. I’m excited to go to the Duomo di Milano — I feel I’ll see that at this time. I had a tour of the Fondazione Prada, which was actually cool. There’s numerous the solid from The White Lotus right here, so I’m excited to see folks, exit for dinners, and reminisce. It’s my first time again in Italy since filming final summer time, and it’s citing numerous recollections — largely about how I simply want I spoke Italian so I might talk higher. And everybody’s so properly dressed right here and carries themselves so properly. It’s type of intimidating. I really feel like a bum a bit bit with my personal-style recreation. So I’m excited to do some procuring as properly.

Simply wait till your baggage arrives. Then it’s recreation over for everybody else.
Precisely.

Let’s discuss White Lotus and the various poisonous prongs of the Di Grasso–household masculinity. Do you imagine Albie deserved to get performed by Lucia?
I feel Albie goes into conditions with as pure of a coronary heart as he can, and once you do this, you’re leaving your self open to being taken benefit of by folks. So I feel it’s an excellent studying lesson for him going ahead in life: studying to take issues gradual and watch his personal again.

You’ve stated that, whereas filming for the present in Sicily, Jennifer Coolidge bought you into wine. What did she educate you, and what does a wine lesson with Jennifer entail?
We went out to this good restaurant, and he or she ordered a bottle of Sicilian pink wine from Mt. Etna. The yr was 2016 or 2014, and it was simply the very best glass of wine I’d ever had. It opened my eyes. She tried to take an image of the label to recollect it by, however she moved her digicam too quick and the flash went off, so that you simply noticed a blurry picture. I’m nonetheless new to wine, and to ingesting normally, so I’m nonetheless within the studying section. I’d say simply attempt a bunch. See what you want; see what you don’t like. There’s no unsuitable solutions.

Though going out to dinner with the Italian actors in L.A. for the premiere, it was actually arduous for them to discover a bottle of wine. You understand how they provide you a pattern at a restaurant so you’ll be able to attempt it and you then’re like, “Okay, go forward — pour”? They simply have been type of, No, to every little thing. I used to be like, “Sabrina, I’m sorry. This isn’t Italy; that is L.A. You must handle your expectations a bit.”

You’ve grown a mustache. Inform me about that.
Is it worthy of speaking about?

I feel so.
Often I simply develop my facial hair out in between auditions whereas working, as a result of if I get an audition and I would like the character to look a sure method, I can’t develop facial hair in a single day — however you’ll be able to all the time shave to appear to be the character in a single day. So it’s largely only for that objective. Type of a boring reply, I assume.

No, no. I’m glad to know. Lengthy earlier than The White Lotusyou have been on the Disney Channel, and clips of you from Radio Insurgent are making the rounds on-line. What was the Disney Channel–to–HBO trajectory like?
Fortunately, I wasn’t tied to a present for a few years. I did two Disney Channel films, so I simply type of bought in and bought out comparatively unscathed. However they have been each actually good, constructive work environments and experiences on which I’ve met a few of my finest buddies to this present day. I met my pal Atticus Mitchell on Radio Insurgentand he’s truly right here with me as my visitor in Milan proper now. Yeah, I’m actually glad to have finished these. Don’t get me unsuitable, although — I’m method happier to be a part of The White Lotus.

Are you conscious that you simply’re on the opposite aspect of the enduring Debby Ryan meme?
That can by no means die. I keep in mind in 2020, Radio Insurgent grew to become a meme on TikTok and it had this entire resurgence. And now it’s taking place once more as a result of folks realized I used to be in it with Debby and on the opposite aspect of her well-known — I feel folks known as it a “Kubrick stare” or one thing.

We’ll have enjoyable with that meme eternally.
I’ll inform Debby.

One final thing: What are you excited to eat in Milan?
I attempt to be gluten free usually. In Italy, there’s completely different guidelines and rules for a way they develop their wheat. I’m not celiac however can tolerate the pasta and the bread right here, so I’m simply excited to do this. I’m a little bit of a final, a time period for somebody who enjoys pasta.

I’d qualify myself as considered one of them too.
You’re a stand as properly?

I’m from Jersey in spite of everything.
Hell yeah.
