Ahead of the You season three premiere, returning Friday, Oct. 15 on Netflix, the cast exclusively dished to E! News about why Badgley is the perfect guy-next-door murderer—and we couldn’t agree more.
The Gossip Girl alum is an international celebrity thanks to his sinister on-screen persona. As season three guest star Shalita Grant gushed, “He’s a mega-star. My partner’s family even wants his autograph.”
According to Grant, it’s Badgley’s real-life personality that makes his You character relatable and empathetic…even when he’s beating someone to death. It’s that duality of charm, kindness and heart from Badgley IRL that, with a bloodied twist, can craft the complex character of Joe. “He’s actually the perfect actor to play a serial killer because he’s the nicest guy, in all honesty,” Grant continued. “If he were a different guy, I’m not sure the show would work.”
