On the series, Larry’s character is in a relationship with Julia Lester‘s Ashlyn. Larry told HL that he really thinks the two characters are totally “meant for each other. They not only bring out the best in each other, but they also see the best in each other, even when the other one doesn’t necessarily see the best in themselves,” he revealed.

“They are really just able to help each other grow, and it’s really exciting to kind of go on that journey with them and see what challenges they’re facing as they’re kind of growing and changing and how they do that together as a couple, and also how they find themselves individually through this couple.” Fans are so happy that Larry felt empowered and comfortable sharing his sexuality with them, and we cannot wait to see what unfolds for this young star!
