Deklin said that he was careful to present his role in the movie as accurately as possible. He told TV Goodness: ” I want [military personnel] to like the way I’m representing them. Danica became very protective of my character, which is, in some ways, typical of who she is. She’s a very generous person. And she was a pal to me. If something came up in the script that was out of character for Jake, or didn’t have the utmost integrity, she was really quick to say, ‘No, he wouldn’t do that.” Read more in TV Goodness’s interview here.
