“It was actually a decision I made before going on the show,” Badgley said. “I don’t think I’ve ever brought it up publicly, but one of the main things was, ‘Do I want to get myself back on the career path where I’ve always been the lead romantic?'”

He continued, “It’s really important to me… Fidelity in every relationship – especially my marriage – is very important to me, but there’s a point where I don’t want to The point of doing that. And then, of course, there’s the question before I get on the show, ‘If I didn’t, would I still have a career? I mean, you know, think of every male lead you’ve ever loved. Are they kissing someone? Are they doing more than that? It’s really not my wish.”

“She’s the new shiny thing he can’t figure out. So, it’s not boring,” Badgley previously told The Hollywood Reporter. “And then, once he got to know her, what attracted him, at least according to him—Jo was the least reliable narrator, perhaps of all storytellers— He said he was attracted because she seemed to want to be good. She was surrounded by bad people and wanted to be good. He felt the same way. But, he said so. I don’t know if it’s true.”

After the first season premiered on Lifetime, you
