In an earlier interview, Darius spilled the beans on his early life and said, “I first studied with Terry when he was teaching at NYU, and I was a college student there.

The Sex/Life actor went on to say, “I enrolled in a two-year training course with Terry, and my career was enhanced immediately.” Up until this day, Darius “[turns] to Terry for coaching on every part that [he plays],” and that includes his role in Sex/Life. In the same interview, he relayed that his suave character was initially written to be of Mexican descent.

Homayoun continued, “That part evolved when I was cast. The role of what is now Majid was originally written to be a Mexican man, and somewhat older. But the casting director didn’t find the right person, so the audition was broadened, and I was selected. The part was, therefore, changed about a month before shooting began.”
