What’s been the most challenging arc for you to film on the show so far?
I think what we’re filming right now is definitely difficult in this fifth season. Watching, in many ways, not only an evolution of a character, but a descent. We’re watching him tear himself apart, to hopefully rebuild himself in a better way, but in the process he’s - without giving anything away - he’s kind of losing it. It’s been tricky to find ways to play it without pushing it over the top, so it’s not exploitative of mental illness. That’s something I’ve been talking to the writers about being conscientious of.

"[Mickey] is actually married to Ian as far as where his commitment and his heart and his everything is at.” - J. Michael Trautmann

“I think the heart of that storyline is always going to be Ian & Mickey. That’s his home in a number of ways. Ian is the one person he’s been able to be truly at home and himself with – the only person really – he’s been able to be like that with in his life up until now.” - Noel Fisher

“So, that’s been an interesting thing for the season and the ramifications with his family and his lover.” - Cameron Monaghan
