His character on the show is pansexual, so he does end up kissing quite a few women and men this season. That experience had him questioning his upbringing he told Variety.
“That was definitely interesting …Obviously my character, Max, is pansexual and for me it’s always amazing when you play a part to see what you can kind of draw from that and what you can compare it with in your own life, your own beliefs,” he said.
“And it definitely did make me question how I was brought up and have been conditioned to think in terms of gender and gender identity and sexual preferences stuff. That kind of threw that all up in the air and it was kind of very liberating. It’s been an amazing experience for me, definitely.”
