Important news: Andrew Scott is, once again, gushing about his All of Us Strangers co-star Paul Mescal.

In an interview with The Sunday Timesthe actor reflected on the “wonderful” friendship that has formed between the duo as a result of their time on the lauded LGBTQIA+ fantasy drama.

“I adore Paul. Obviously it’s been a tough time recently and he just continues to be a wonderful friend. It’s everything,” said Scott, whose mother tragically passed away in March following a “sudden illness”.

“The more I work in the industry, I realise, you make some stuff that people love and you make some stuff that people don’t like, and all really that you are left with is the relationships that you make.”

Scott added of Pescal: “I love him dearly.”

This isn’t the first time the duo have expressed their love for one another. In an interview with British VogueMescal said the film “was just the perfect climate to fall in love with Andrew as a human being”.

And in a segment called “Ask Me Anything” for Elle UKMescal described his co-star as “wonderfully eloquent”: “He lives by the things he says, which I think is all and well good sounding smart, but I think you have to live by it, and he does that in spades”.

Scott responded: “When I think about Paul, I think there’s something that’s very forthright about you that’s really wonderful.

“It’s a really good quality. You’re not backwards and coming forwards on things you believe, but some people really are.

“I think there’s a real difference between somebody being nice and somebody being good… and Paul is a really, really good person, and that’s what I love about him.”

All of Us Strangers follows Adam, a screenwriter (Scott) who is pulled back into his childhood home “where he discovers that his long-dead parents are both living and look the same age as the day they died over 30 years ago”.

At the same time, Adam embarks on a passionate romance with his “mysterious” neighbour Harry (Mescal).

Directed by Andrew Haigh, All of Us Strangers received universal critical acclaim, becoming one of the most praised LGBTQIA+ films in history. Despite this, it failed to garner a single nomination at the Academy Awards, which was unanimously referred to as a “snub”.

Since its release, Scott has starred as the title character in Netflix’s neo-noir series Ripleybased on Patricia Highsmith’s classic crime novel The Talented Mr. Ripley. 

Later this year, Mescal will star as Lucius Verus in the much-anticipated Gladiator sequel, directed by Ridley Scott.
