Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, both men talked about their real life relationship with one another. Peter started things off by saying, “I have said almost from the minute Jason got here that he’s a really evolved spirit. He’s a really good guy on every front, and he has this wonderful vibe about him. Everyone, everyone likes him. The more I get to know him, the more I like him, and that’s a pretty cool thing.”

Jason also added, “I personally find a ton of similarities with his family and his career trajectory as mine. We both have a son and a daughter, we both were recasts on the show, we both care deeply about the work and for the people we work with. I have such a comfort knowing that I have Peter as a friend, as a colleague and as my older brother. There are certain relationships that you have at work, where you don’t feel you actually need to try very hard. Things are just kind of there. And our personal relationship is very deep and layered. We’ll find ourselves in dressing rooms just talking for hours. I’m incredibly fortunate that our personal relationship is as rich as it is.”

Peter also added that they had chemistry with one another from the very start. He put it this way, “I have to say it was automatic. It came on the first scene I had with him,” while Jason also added, “ I’ll just add that for me personally, when you get to work with someone who is innately vulnerable and a sensitive human being, the sky is the limit. Peter is that tremendously open and allows himself to be vulnerable in the moment. I can tell that we’ve both almost choked up sometimes and it’s hard to say the next line to a certain extent.”
