Michael Cimino Turned To One of His Family Members For ‘Love, Victor’ Guidance

Michael Cimino turned to one special family member for guidance just before he started filming Love, Victor.

The 20-year-old actor told People that he consulted with his cousin before he started filming the Hulu series.

“I talked to my cousin, who is gay. He told me things that really hurt him and helped him [when he was coming out.] It was very special for both of us,” Michael shared, while promoting the series, that just debuted this week.

Michael added, “I wanted Victor to feel like a real human being. I feel like the most important thing about this whole story is that someone could relate to Victor and relate to his story, no matter what your sexual orientation is, no matter what ethnicity you are. And I feel like adding elements of myself and of my cousin, did that.”
