I first met him on set and I offered myself as Luv and he offered himself as Niander Wallace. We hadn’t mentioned our characters previously or rehearsed in combination, so it was once a truly other enjoy for me. Our characters and our scenes are very intense. The courting between Luv and Niander may be very complicated and fragile and so I believe that as a result of I didn’t truly know Jared, he was much more far away from my personality, and he or she was once attempting even more difficult to get some popularity or approval from him.
