Recalling his time on set, Milo said he would often stay and watch the rest of the cast work after his scenes were completed.
‘For me, honestly, I feel at times I’m like, I’m just gonna sit and observe. I kind of dance on the periphery of when it’s the group because you guys have so much collective time together, that for me, I’m like, I don’t want to disturb them, I’m just gonna watch.
‘To be around you guys is to know something lovely.’
