He said: "Playing Jax was amazing. Started off as a dream come true and very quickly became my inspiration for working harder than I ever have in my life to learn how to move like the character, learn how to fight like the character, take on the story of how someone would find themselves in his position, fighting inter-dimensional monsters and timeless ninjas."

Mehcad's character was killed off in the show, but fans are hopeful that if the programme ever came back on air, he would make an appearance one way or another.
