He told Metro in an interview that;
“I think male bisexuality is even less represented [than female or non-binary]. […] It’s a real honor to be able to play Nick because it’s such an underrepresented kind of character, really,”
“I think the representation in modern-day media is getting better but there are never enough queer stories being shown on screen.” He said in another interview.
