‘I’m goofy, I’m silly, I like to have fun, I don’t like to yell and scream, I actually hate it. I think it’s disgusting and really awful, and it’s been a challenge for me. Horror Story sort of demanded that of me.”

He continued:

“It’s been all a massive stretch for me and really difficult to do,” he says of playing those characters. “It’s hurting my soul and Evan as a person. There’s this massive amount of rage that’s been called upon from me, and the emotional stuff that’s been called on me for Pose has been heartbreaking, and I’m sick. I don’t feel good.”
