He has Louise [played by Holliday Grainger], who’s a friend, but someone who he’s grown up with so he sees her more as a sister figure.” “We were discussing the fact that she was most likely a tomboy when she was young, so he’s always sort of perceived her as a mate,” he adds.“And so to have this obsession with a female creature entering his life, it is so different from what he’s used to and so mysterious.

It was incredibly enjoyable and fun to explore that.” The key to his personality, inevitably, is in Philip’s childhood as an orphan brought up in a strictly masculine environment.
The pair had an epic prank war on the set of their movie, and they've given fans a glimpse of their goofier sides on Instagram.
Meanwhile, they recently hit the red carpet together in NYC, and the entire Me Before You cast has shown their love for each other on social media.
