1. He’s not a fan of social media! Trey‘s Instagram bio says, “I hate doing this, but I’m told it’s important for work.” Clearly he’s not a fan of posting on the social media app, but is keeping his page active to support his career and connect with his fans.
2. He’s a model! You can check out his modeling page at this link. It has so many great photos from his modeling days and lists all of his stats, including his height at 6’3″, his hair being black, and his eyes being green.
3. He shares a manager with Gary Oldman! Trey is managed by Douglas Management Group, who only represent three people, according to IMDbPro: him, Gary Oldman, and Crocodile Dundee star Paul Hogan.

5. His favorite scene in What Lies Below is when he walks out of the lake in a speedo! In a recent interview with AMFM Magazine, Trey said the moment he’ll always remember on set was, “Coming out of the water almost naked in 39 degree water. That was fun. That was terrific. I wish I could do that all of the time. But overall, everybody showed up to work and really wanted to make a good movie, but it was quite playful and quite fun. Even when you’re coming out of the water and it’s 39 degrees and you have to do that over and over again for an hour and a half, it still would end up being fun because I’m playfully yelling at the director that now he owes me two bottles of Scotch. ‘Hey Trey, can we do one more?’ Alright, that’s three bottles of Scotch. It was very easy to keep it lighthearted, so it was fun in that way.”
6. He’d like to play Superman one day! In that same interview, the reporter said that Trey would make a great Superman and he responded by saying, “Hey, you know what? From your mouth, my friend. I’m sure ol’ Henry [Cavill] will get tired of it eventually and take the cape off and I’ll throw my hat in at that time.”
7. His other recent movie The Outpost is also on Netflix! Trey played CPT Stoney Portis in the movie The Outpost, which was a big hit for Netflix when it was added to the streaming service last year. You can see a photo that he shared from the set in Bulgaria above.
