Speaking of his rise to fame and aspirations to become and actor, he explained: ‘I had a delusional dream in my early teenage years to have, in my late teenage years, an acting career.

‘And in my late teenage years, working on and starting to do theatre in New York, I felt like I reduced my goal to something more realistic, which was to work in theatre and hopefully make enough money doing either a TV show or something I could sustain myself [with]. 

‘Then it felt like every dream came true, exponentially. And then life is moving at six million miles per hour.’
