As for Michael, he took finding his voice literally, through his passion for singing. “I always wanted to be a singer… ever since I was a little kid,” he told VMAN. A member of his church knew this and one day asked the aspiring singer to join his acting class. Cimino agreed. Having several role models to look up to, Michael credits one, in particular, his older cousin Jon-Jon, who serves more as a brotherly figure. Michael describes him as a charismatic, funny, and outgoing gay man. Reminiscing, he says, “I just remember wanting and trying to be like him, trying to be a person that maybe has an impact on people.” He shares with honesty, “Jon-Jon is a huge reason why I am the person I am today;” crediting his cousin who welcomed conversations and shared personal experiences that helped to build the character of Victor.
Michael, Rachel Hilson (Mia) and George Sear (Benji) got together over video chat to discuss and dish on all things Love, Victor! You can view the full chat below.
UPDATE: We have updated the video with the YouTube version, so we have revised this post.

Michael recently previewed his new series, Love, Victor with TV Insider which you can read the entire article below.
Remember to watch Love, Victor when it premieres on Hulu on June 17th, 2020!
Get ready to fall in love with high schooler Victor Salazar, who’s on a journey to self-discovery in the new Hulu series Love, Victor.
The 10-episode spinoff of the 2018 big-screen romance Love, Simon follows Michael Cimino’s character as he struggles with his sexuality while adapting to a new city (Atlanta) and a new school. “Most of the time [a move like that] makes [figuring out these questions] a lot harder, because trying to navigate this new world is hard,” Cimono says.
The fact that there are no preconceived notions about this Texas transplant should work in Victor’s favor. But when Victor starts dating a classmate named Mia (Rachel Naomi Hilson), Cimino says, “Victor makes there be preconceived notions about him. He’s on his way to a very tough first few months at school.”
Hulu has moved up the release of Love, Victor so it will now release on June 17, 2020 instead of the original airdate of June 19th, 2020.
This means that Love, Victor will now release NEXT WEEK and we couldn’t be more excited for the release of Michael’s newest series where he’s the main star!
Love, Victor premieres on June 19th, 2020 on Hulu when all 10 episodes of the first season premieres at once.
Set in the world of the 2018 groundbreaking film LOVE, SIMON which was inspired by Becky Albertalli’s acclaimed novel, Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, the series follows Victor, a new student at Creekwood High School on his own journey of self-discovery, facing challenges at home, adjusting to a new city and exploring his sexual orientation. When it all seems too much, he reaches out to Simon to help him navigate the ups and downs of high school. The film’s original writers Isaac Aptaker (“This Is Us“) and Elizabeth Berger (“This Is Us“) serve as executive producers alongside Brian Tanen (GRAND HOTEL), Jason Ensler (“The Passage”), Isaac Klausner (THE HATE U GIVE), Marty Bowen (FIRST MAN), Adam Fishbach (“Narcos”), Wyck Godfrey (“I, Robot”), Pouya Shahbazian (DIVERGENT) and Adam Londy. 20th Century Fox Television serves as the studio.

Isabella Ferreira (“Orange is the New Black”) plays Pilar, Victor’s sullen younger sister in the throes of teenage angst, while Mateo Fernandez will make his acting debut as Adrian, Victor’s adorable, good-natured little brother.

George Sear (“Will,” “Into the Badlands”) portrays Benjie, Victor’s confident and charming classmate, with Anthony Turpel (“The Bold and the Beautiful”) as Felix, Victor’s lanky, awkward new neighbor, and Mason Gooding (“Book smart”) as Andrew, Creek wood’s cocky and popular basketball-loving jock.
