Tropes applying to his roles:
- Pretty Boy: Most prominent early on in his career, when he played innocent and handsome young men who just got out of their teen years and discovered love.
- Written-In Infirmity: The scar on his left cheek is acknowledged in some of his roles. He got it when trying to ride a doberman dog at age 6. He has quipped that the scar increases his emotional acting abilities because it looks like a dimple.
