“It was such an interesting dynamic to play, because as different as they are, they both have many similarities – they both come from this really dysfunctional background of toxic masculinity and Ben has been there. “

Tony added: “They are children from difficult backgrounds in their own way, they both took very different paths. Now, they met at the right age, at the right time and I think the right time in their lives.
