It's really nice. We worked together on (upcoming action film) Left Behind and then by coincidence went on to (TV show) Chosen.
"I must say, it's a really lovely experience to get to go from one to the next. It never happens that way. If we could do it all the time we would because it's lovely. It's fun!"
The star adds, "We definitely support each other. We are both the same age in the same industry, and there's a really great support system we have for each together and an understanding. We are very lucky and very grateful! We have had such an incredible journey together so far! I feel like he's my twin, it's really lovely!"
