Social Media Presence
Due to the major influence of social networks, it is nowadays a regular thing for active actors to nourish a close and active relationship with their fans, for the sake of increasing the popularity of the titles they’re working on, and thus their own net worth. It looks like David doesn’t care much for this celebrity trend, as his presence is lackluster on most social media networks. Facebook and Instagram accounts – if any – are nowhere to be found, while his Instagram account has more than 15,000 followers.
