“It’s amazing just to see how much of an impact he still has on their lives and how much they remember him. I could feel the sadness, and the love there was pretty palpable. So that was something I really took from those meetings,” he said of meeting Steve‘s coworkers.

Michael also mentioned how his first on-stage experience was as a church alter boy.

“It is actually the first sort of experience of acting, really. I felt like I was up on a stage. It actually was quite boring sitting there in the congregation, but to be up part of it…” Michael explained.
