10 things you need to know about 'Incorporated' star Sean Teale

Prepare to be catapulted into 2074 in the new futuristic thriller Incorporated. The series, executive produced by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, shows viewers a world where corporations reign supreme.

Leading a stellar cast in the dystopian drama (think Julia Ormond and Dennis Haysbert) is British actor Sean Teale. The handsome 24-year-old stars as a young executive who goes undercover in a corporate world riddled with danger and deceit to save the woman he loves.

TAP FOR GALLERY Sean stars as Ben in the new futuristic drama Incorporated (Wednesdays, Showcase).

The former Skins star is as self-deprecating as he is handsome when Hello! sits down with him in Toronto ahead of the Nov. 30th premiere of the show. "I thought Matt and Ben were great at everything they did but they made the mistake of letting me do their show. Everyone slips up once right? he jokes before professing his love for Toronto where the series was filmed. "Some of my favourite restaurants clothing stores and people are here. I know it through and through. It’s my second home and I’m happy to call it that."

We couldn't let the actor leave without giving him a proper quiz on all things Sean. Here's what he had to say ...

My favourite person to follow on social media is…
@GetInTheSea effectively just finds some of the most ridiculous products or people and tells them to get back in the sea, to go back from where they came and I find that really funny.

The songs I can’t stop listening to are…
“DLZ” by TV On The Radio and Jamie T’s “Dragon Bones.”

If I wasn’t an actor I’d be a…
Foreign correspondent. A war correspondent. Someone that documents things abroad that are happening and tries to inform and educate people around the world to help change those scenarios.

If I could go anywhere in the world I’d go to…
The Arctic or Antarctica. I care a lot about global warming and climate change and I very much think that our generation has drawn the short straw in the sense that it’s going to come to a head while we are very much still here. If I could go to either of the poles and witness personally the changes that have happened, I think it would allow me to fight harder.

Dogs or cats…
Dogs, dogs, dogs!

My go-to restaurant in my hometown of London is…
Foley’s. It’s so good. I’ve never posted a photo of food in my life and that was the first food photo I posted.

My favourite television show or movie set in the future is…
I really liked Battlestar Galactica growing up. So it’s great to be on Syfy next to them. I was also brought up on the original Star Wars.

My first celebrity crush was…
The girl from Billy Elliot the movie! I also fell in love with Natascha McElhone from Californication. It came out in 2007 when I was like 15. I also liked Marissa on The O.C. You can’t help but fall in love with Mischa Barton on The O.C.

If I could work with any actor it would be…
Jake Gyllenhaal. I’d love to work with him. I think he’d kick my ass. He’d absolutely take me to town but he’d teach me a few things.

Sean stars alongside Julia Ormond and Dennis Haysbert.

This holiday season I plan to...
Go home and fight with my family. It’s going to be great (Laughs). No, special holiday plans are to lay low and New Year’s will be great. Every year me and a group of friends always get a house in the country and set up shop for five or six days.
