On the red carpet of the 2016 Outfest Los Angeles LGBT Film Festival, the cast of gay porn drama, King Cobra, shared about their personal experiences working on the film.

Inspired by real life events surrounding the 2007 horrific murder of gay porn tycoon, Bryan Kocis, King Cobra stars Christian Slater, ‘a little gay’ James Franco, former Disney celeb Garrett Clayton and Pretty Little Liars actor Keegan Allen,

Speaking to Logo, Allen, who plays one of the murderers in the film, said that he needed to do some intensive homework about the world of gay porn to prepare himself for the role:

‘Everything about this character was completely three sixty of who I am and my lifestyle. I mean, I didn’t know anything about the gay porn industry going in,’ said the hunky 27-year-old. ‘I did a lot of research—obviously it was very intense.’

Allen spoke of his excitement for the film because it’s based on a true story, and said that he soon found love for his character:

‘It was kind of beautiful. I really loved my character a lot. And [for] a lot of people, I don’t know how they’re gonna feel about him, but I had to find the love for him.’

The actor also shared that working on King Cobra helped open his mind about people in the gay porn industry:

‘It opened my mind a lot about what these guys go through on a personal basis and how much of a struggle it is.’

Clayton who plays Sean Paul Lockhart aka Brent Corrigan in the movie also talked about his experience working on the sexually charged film.

‘It was a lot more artistic than I was expecting it to be, which I really appreciated,’ said the 25-year-old. ‘Because it’s such an aggressive movie, I thought it was gonna be a lot more… aggressively shot,’

The ex-Teen Beach Movie actor added: ‘It’s nerve-racking to go from young adult to extreme adult.’
