Tommy Dorfman Dishes on Remotely Filming Love in the Time of Corona in Just 3 Days
In our Q&A series Last Call, we get down to the bottom of every last thing with some of our favorite celebs — from the last thing they texted to the last thing they binge-watched. This week, actor Tommy Dorfman takes our call.
What do you do when the world shuts down during a global pandemic and you're still searching for love? Freeform is navigating that exact dilemma with its new two-night, aptly named limited series, Love in the Time of Corona, featuring Tommy Dorfman. Filmed remotely and shot in the cast's homes, the series explores four stories about the search for love and connection during an isolating pandemic.
In celebration of the new series, we chatted with Tommy for our Q&A series Last Call, where they answered everything from the last spontaneous thing they did to the last piece of advice that changed their life!
POPSUGAR: What was the last day of filming Love in the Time of Corona like?
It was pretty surreal, considering we wrapped four episodes of television in just over three days. On one hand, I was relieved because people were leaving my house (where we shot) and on the other hand sad to have work start and finish so quickly. It felt like a fever dream.
