The actor also dishes on his super-secret role in the Heroes reboot
“Nobody can prepare you for marriage,” Levi, 34, told reporters at the A Night at Sardi’s event, benefitting the Alzheimer’s Association, in Beverly Hills on Wednesday. “Marriage is a whole other animal!”
Thus, over the past nine months, the couple have been learning the ins and outs of being married as they go.
“With dating you can be ‘Hey, it’s not working out,’ and you’re out. But marriage, you make a commitment. The easy outs you don’t have anymore. You’re responsible for another person’s life as they are yours,” added Levi.
And this is a responsibility Levi is taking very seriously, while he also prepares himself to become a father one day.
“Everybody sets out to be a great dad. I think it takes a lot of soul searching and work, work on yourself and past wounds,” Levi revealed to PEOPLE.
“It’s a continuation of the saga that was Heroes with a whole new cast of characters and their lives and this new world,” Levi said of the show’s resurrection.
“I was a giant fan of the show to begin with. When I was doing Chuck we were doing press with the Heroes guys, and I was like, ‘I want powers!’ ”
So, is his wishing coming true?
“I’m not even sure I have any,” sighed Levi. “I hope I can teleport. Or fly. Or invisibility. Or super strength. Or all of them.”
