Continuing to explore the different types of love in the series, Mark Indelicato shares a wonderful response on his favorite love from With Love, and it’s the platonic love of his character Jorge Jr. and Nick, played by Desmon Chiam.

Well, I think that for me, I think the sense of platonic love is the most rewarding for me in making the show and namely because looking at the character of Nick and the character of Jorge, I think that in media, you wouldn’t necessarily put those two together as best friends. And so I think that the fact that that was from jump that we started season one with like they’ve been best friends for 10 years, you know?

And I think that that demystifies the supposed representation or the misrepresentation, but the supposed kind of narrative about gay men being friends with straight men in a very, very lovely and gentle way.
It’s like Nick and Jorge love each other. They really, really do. And so I think that that is probably the most rewarding relationship for me in terms of like love.

I mean, listen, friendship is friendship. I think platonic love is probably the most powerful of all like versions of love. I think that if you ride or die for your friend, you know, it’s easy to fall out of love.
It’s very hard to leave a friend. Just saying

Being 6’ 4” and Asian, he never really fit in, so he got comfortable standing out. Not only is it easy to find him in crowds, he dabbles in the culinary arts, does a little stand up and improv, and can honestly say Spider-Man is the Jesus-like influence of his life.
