Achieving Gerwig’s grin on set was “the best feeling in the world,” Liu said, especially since Gerwig chose Liu in part because he was in a competitive hip-hop dance company in college.

“Greta said she enjoys watching boys dance because it’s an expression of talent,” Liu said. “She guffawed and giggle-screamed, and I got the part.”

“What we do daily is ridiculous,” Luu said.

Liu’s agent said Greta Gerwig‘s “Barbie” script was among the best he’d read.

Liu: “He said it word-for-word.” “I’d bet my career on the ‘Barbie’ script,” he stated. I recommend it.
