Quotes

Season 1

It was like, the hardest audition ever because it was like three lines and I was like, ‘I don’t even know who this person is’. (...) He’s a kid who’s not from the right part of town, but is popular at school despite his interesting home life. For some reason that really attracted me, because I remember being in high school and you wear all these masks. Justin wears masks constantly. It’s almost like a survival technique because you see what happens to him at home and you see… being a product of how you’re brought up and how that can make you interact with other human beings.
— Brandon about auditioning for the role of Justin

Season 2

My favorite part of this whole season, selfishly, is the relationship that starts to form between Clay and Justin. And the whole Jensen family, and the way that they embrace Justin. They were just like the best thing ever, because it was just like, you know, more than just a one-off scene about, like, my heroin addiction. It was, like, just a little slice of life. Which I never thought would be, like, my cup of tea. You know, I'm usually the one who's like "Lets get real sad and tragic!". But it was really awesome to just sit at a breakfast table and have, like, these awkward moments. And just have, like, this-- this levity, which I think is gonna be so enjoyable for the audience as well.
