ICYMI, the PEN15 solid is loopy shut in actual life. No, significantly – cocreators and important stars Maya Erskine and Anna Konkle share a decent bond that rivals that of Maya Ishii-Peters and Anna Kone (maybe minus the tacky friendship necklaces although). Erskine’s onscreen mother, Yuki, is portrayed by her precise mom, Mutsuko Erskine. And, as I found whereas binge-watching season two, the center college drama trainer is performed by none aside from Michael Angarano, aka Erskine’s boyfriend. How cute is that?
Through the sixth episode of season two, we meet Angarano as Greg Rosso, the dad-sneakers-sporting director of the varsity play and a lover of the phrases “actual” and “sincere.” Maya is solid in a lead position of mentioned play, which means Erskine shares a handful of hilarious scenes together with her offscreen accomplice. Actually, I simply need to understand how Angarano managed to maintain a straight face and keep in character whereas watching his girlfriend put on a mushroom-like wig and faux to flirt with an actor half her age. It is a true testomony to his appearing expertise, which he is been honing since he was a younger child. Angarano has starred in a slew of reveals and films by the years, together with Sky Excessive (yep, he is Will Stronghold!), I am Dying Up Right here, Will & Grace, Cowl Me, The English Instructor, and, most not too long ago, This Is Us, on which he portrayed Jack’s youthful brother, Nicky. Speak about vary!
It is unclear precisely when Erskine and Angarano first began courting, however they made issues Instagram official in September 2019, a couple of months after PEN15 nabbed its season-two renewal. Since then, they’ve shared a boatload of candy moments collectively, which you’ll admire forward after seeing Angarano in motion as Greg on PEN15.
