Netflix’s “Heartstopper” Stars Kit Connor and Joe Locke is the stars for watch in 2022 thanks to their hit Emmy winning series!
The two actors were both featured on Vulture’s Best Acting Performance list of 2022.
The publication shared:
“Not a single damn thing about the almost painfully sweet queer YA romance Heartstopper would work without its central pair of performances. The show is lovely — the writing solid, the direction fuzzy and tender, members of the supporting cast all doing their part to round out the world of this British high-school series. But the difference between a just-fine Heartstopper and the dizzy, glowing Heartstopper that actually exists comes down to the work of Kit Connor and Joe Locke. They avoid simple reductions — Locke’s Charlie is sometimes shy and sometimes bold, while Connor’s Nick can be both confident and anxious — and they’re exquisitely, beautifully awkward and warm with each other and controlled without feeling mannered. Rom-coms have the bad reputation of being a plug-and-play genre, and nothing could be further from the truth. Without solid lead chemistry, the whole thing falls flat, and Connor and Locke absolutely nail it. —Kathryn VanArendonk”
The two deserve it and we can’t wait to see the second season in 2023. The actors also has other projects in store as well that we can’t wait to watch! Stay tuned for more Kit and Joe.
Heartstopper tells the story of Nick and Charlie, two British teens at an all-boys grammar school. Charlie, a high-strung, openly gay overthinker, and Nick, a cheerful, soft-hearted rugby player, one day are made to sit together. They quickly become friends, and soon Charlie is falling hard for Nick, even though he doesn’t think he has a chance. But love works in surprising ways, and Nick is more interested in Charlie than either of them realized. Heartstopper is about love, friendship, loyalty and mental illness. It encompasses all the small stories of Nick and Charlie’s lives that together make up something larger.
