When Chris Warren first started portraying Hayden Moss Tyler Perry’s Sistasthe character was very similar Zeke, the affable teenager the actor played in Disney’s high school musical movies.
But over time, Hayden grew more sinister as he plotted against Zac and Fatima, aka “Zatima.” Warren, who says he loves every minute of his character’s villainess, adds that the attorney is set to get a whole lot worse when the hit BET drama returns for Season 4B on Wednesday, June 1 at 9:8c.
“It makes me really happy that Hayden is the most hated man sisters”, Warren reveals it to TVLine. “It means I’m doing something right. In the beginning it really wasn’t like that. Hayden was a flirty guy and he and Fatima had some history and they just worked together and Hayden would help her. I really didn’t see the villain turn, but it happened very quickly and I’m very happy about it. This is the first time I’ve played someone that dirty. It was really fun playing someone like that and being hated by so many people. It was just beautiful.”
Warren, whose mother is famed soap star Brook Kerr, can’t spoil any plot twists when it comes to what Hayden has in store — but he promises it won’t be pretty.
“Hayden will take things to the next level,” predicts Warren. “If he’s taken things a long way before, wait until he’s taken things much further. Hayden just wants to win at all costs. If that means he has to win against Fatima or Zac or Robin, it doesn’t matter. It’s all about his ego. He has to win no matter what.”
In that respect, Warren notes that Hayden and Gary are very similar.
“Hayden is hated even more than Gary, but they both believe they can’t lose,” explains the actor. “That’s why people hate her. They are both very petty and built of the same ego driven nature. That’s the great thing about the way Tyler works [Perry] write these characters. At the end of the day, Hayden and Gary are hated for a reason.”
Such is the fan hatred for Hayden that fans cheered his supposed death at the end of season 3, and one Twitter user even created one grief program mocks his demise. It’s a level of vitriol that makes Warren proud.
“It helps that I’ve never had a Twitter account,” Warren suggests with a chuckle. “I see the screenshots and the funny memes, but not being on Twitter helps. Honestly, because he’s so obnoxious, I take it as a compliment because I make him hard to like. If I’m doing my job right, that means you should really, really hate Hayden. I am pleased. I don’t have a mustache to twirl so I trim my eyebrows. As soon as I’m in front of the camera as Hayden, all sorts of things happen. It’s all part of his affects, and it’s part of what people hate about him. I make his face very punchable.”
