ROXY SIMONS: I thought it was just so brilliantly done. There's also this kind of fun teasing of a love triangle between--


ROXY SIMONS: --Hobie, Gwen, and Miles. And I wondered, how do you think Hobie kind of sees Gwen and how like that relationship was before we got introduced to him?

DANIEL KALUUYA: He's just got her back. Like that's-- I think that's why he's there. Because I was [INAUDIBLE] thinking, why is he there? It's just like, well, she's there. So [INAUDIBLE] all right, cool. I'll have you back. But like [INAUDIBLE] he probably knows that-- he probably knows that she's part of a thing that she doesn't really align with. But she's into it. But he knows that, again, like Miles, that she follows her gut. And it's like real feelings and is a person of herself. So I think he's just got Gwen's back.
