“Yeah, because I knew — I could feel that some wild s*** was going to happen to me from that meeting, but I wasn’t yet sure what. I just felt it like, deep in my soul — that something was going to come from that. So then, we met on set.”

Director Emmett mentioned that the pair are “very happy” in their romance. The film producer added it was “sweet and beautiful” to see the two lovebirds together. “They’re very passionate about one another and very happy, and I mean, it’s really sweet to see that I had a little hand in that,” he said via video chat. “The chemistry (onset) was second to none, but I just thought, I’m a great director!” “I didn’t know there were these undertones and all that, and now, we spend a lot of time with them since they’ve been together and it’s really sweet and beautiful, and I’m really happy for both of them.”
