Relationships are never easy. I mean, I like being in one, but working with someone that I am in a relationship would add a whole level of stress I am not sure that I would want to take on. I like my space. I am a workaholic and I take work very seriously.
Now I automatically know that Madelyn is a better person than me because I would tell them that my relationship is no ones business. But she responded with grace and patience.
She responded, “Not hard, because you know, season one we started as friends. We all started as friends, and we were incredibly close and we’re still very close. In the off season we did decide to officially start dating. I think, you know, the biggest thing for me going back to work, I was nervous, because for me my workspace was incredibly sacred. It’s very personal to me and I do not like to bring any sort of personal trouble to my workspace. I’m kind of notorious for even turning my phone off and not answering it for hours, or just like leaving it in my trailer, because I like to focus on what’s in front of me. I’m very much of a one-track mind kind of person.”
Madelyn finished answering the question by saying, “And so, we laid the groundwork first and foremost, and I was like, this is a big priority to me, and you know, from what I know based on how you work, it is for you too. But I want to make sure that we hold each other accountable and that we don’t bring anything personal that could potentially distract each other or our fellow castmates on the day. So, it wasn’t hard at all, and I really respect that about him and our relationship.”
