Whilst that might sound crazy, plenty of people have chimed in to say they thought the same thing, comments read:
It certainly looks like it! I thought the same thing
he 100% is CGI, i swear he glows off the screen and looks like a halo character in movement and speech
Has to be CGI. I found this by searching for an answer to my quiestion.
I know I'm 67 days after the first post, but i just started the show. I was creeped out by the random cgi, searched it and this was the top result on google. What is this shit?
Thank god this tread exists... it been the biggest question I've had since I started the show ... wtf is going on? He must be cgi or something ?
I too agree
Even some folk on Twitter agreed:
Okay but my gf and I DEFINITELY thought that maybe for like 1-2 episodes maybe he couldn’t be on set for some reason and they CGI’ed him in. Like the movements were weird and his face was *too* smooth— B in 23 (@lana_nicole42) September 1, 2021
