Why Was Domino’s Husband Turning Down The “You” Role?
In a previous interview on his podcast, Badgley discussed his “zero” intimacy scene rule for season four of “You,” saying that “fidelity in every relationship, and especially my marriage, is crucial for me.”
The actor then clarified his stance claiming that despite wanting to decline the role of Joe Goldberg, the charming serial killer because he didn’t want to be involved in any love scenes, his wife had actually “encouraged” him to do so. He said that his wife was the only one I was going to listen to.
