As for people loving the show, Joe said, “It’s great… It’s nice to finally be able to share with other people. The book meant so much to so many people, so for other people to finally get to see what we’ve been working on is always a nice feeling.”
Alwyn also opened up about getting close to the cast while shooting in Belfast. He commented, “When we first went to Belfast, it was locked down already, so we literally just had to hang out all the time. There was a lot of, a lot of like weekend dinners and drinking and stumbling around Belfast and I think my favorite bit was probably going to Croatia at the end.”
He noted that it “felt like going on holiday.”
The internet recently went crazy over a cat look-a-like of Joe. What’s his reaction? He commented, “I hope it’s the eyes, I mean I’ll take any of it, it’s a cute cat, the whiskers.”
