“Look, (director) Liz (Allen)… The fact that she’s a woman doesn’t matter compared to the fact that she wanted to pursue an honest, real story. It helped a lot, the fact that she was female. I love working with female directors. I think I’ve actually worked more with female directors than with male directors.” he said.

“The dynamic she created was never oppressive or ‘This is how we do it,'” he continued. “It was super collaborative. She and I and Sofia all had this curiosity to explore, especially the world of the military and what it’s like for a young man and the young woman who’s in love with that young man.”
