Minnette says he wants to see less Clay in Season 2.
Everyone really loves each other and it really is a family now at this point. I want to see other people do more on the show. I want to see more stories from the other characters. Clay can take a seat on the sidelines.
Langford talks about how much she enjoys working with Minnette:
[He’s] the best first on-screen partner I could ever imagine working with. I also learned a lot from him, which I’m thankful for because he is so great in what he does.
In an interview with Gold Derby about his Emmy nomination for Best Drama Actor, Minnette chats about the series’ issues.
These are things that happen every day at an alarming rate, and the fact that we addressed it head-on, and unflinching, and we try to make real teenagers out of these characters, I think it’s what people really attached to.
