When we started shooting I put my hand on his shoulder and told him to "be himself and try to look cool". Yes, so I facepalmed in my mind right after that. He gave a little chuckle and said he’d do his best though he’s not sure about the cool part.
When I was taking the close ups, he said quietly “how’s my cool factor?”. I just stared. And then blurted “amazing, you’re very beautiful”. Facepalm number 2.
After the shoot he was very nice and polite, we took a pic together and I told him I saw him in Birdland so he realised I was also a fan.
He’s quite mesmerizing in person.
