Mabius had auditioned for the role of Funboy in the movie "The Crow: Salvation", but the role eventually went to Michael Massee. Ironically, it's Michael Massee's character who fired the gunshot resulting in the death of Eric's character.
While filming The Crow, he had to hurl a lead pipe at a fellow actor.
He met with a casting director, with producer Edward R. Pressman (who also has producer credits for "Badlands" and "Platoon," among others), and director Bharat Nalluri, an Indian making his American debut with this film. They liked him, but officials at Miramax needed convincing that they should cast Mabius instead of a name actor. Ultimately, however, he got the part.
He played in the stage production "Cruel Intentions." He was playing a closeted gay football player manipulated by a pair of scheming step-siblings. His co-stars were Sarah Michelle Gellar and Ryan Phillippe.
John Warthen, who was Eric's teacher, was impressed by Eric's enthusiasm and talent.
During a production, he was fitted with 14 squibs (small explosive charges used to simulate bullet hits on a body). "It was my first time being squibbed," he said enthusiastically, during an interview to The Gazette.
