EUR correspondent Tifarah Dixon talked with John about the show’s incredible fan reception and working relationships.

Tifarah Dixon: The chemistry and history between Leon and Franklin really comes through when the two of you are on-screen. What is the work dynamic like between you both?

Isaiah John: We have a brother dynamic off-set. I’m always going to his house and we’re always spending time with each other and just chilling. We also have each other’s back in performances. If I’m just not feeling it one day, he’s there to motivate me and vice-versa.

TD: What do you think Leon and Franklin’s relationship will be as season five progresses?

IJ: From a fans’ perspective, I see two people who are going down two different paths. Franklin is growing in a completely different way than Leon is growing. They still have love for each other and Leon still wants to be loyal but he’s torn because the way he feels inside himself is different from his actions so he’s always conflicted between the two. We’ll just have to continue and watch to see how everything plays out.
