Briggon and Alex, do your personal relationships and experiences play a part in shaping Caleb and Adam's characters or how they interact with each other?
Caleb is all of me; truly. Lauren gifted me with a character that I get to explore and learn more about myself every time I get a script in my inbox. As for his openness/whatever-ness about his sexuality…I struggled a lot with internal homophobia in high school; A LOT. And that made me a pretty bottled up and angry kid below the surface…so living through Caleb has been a beautiful “second chance” catharsis. As for Caleb and Adam’s relationship…I think Caleb looks up to Adam…and I have always looked up to Alex. And mine and Alex’s goofy friendship has for sure been a natural fuel for what Caleb and Adam’s relationship is. If you saw the Valentine’s Day IG stories…what happened was 100% me and Alex and 100% Caleb and Adam. And true story…sitting in a food court saying “I Love You” to Alex was not at all hard…the guys is the best! - Briggon
Absolutely. I have a genuine love for Briggon and we’ve been through a lot together in real life so it is easy to pour that love through Adam. I do fill in the gaps romantically by drawing from my real life relationships. But Briggon has a bf in real life who isn’t me sooooo…. - Alex G.
