Gay Character in 'Julie and the Phantoms'

In an interview with NewNowNext, he briefly talked about playing a queer character in the television comedy Julie and the Phantoms. He revealed he didn't know Alex (his character) was gay yet when he went in to audition for the producers. He instead was in a belief that he got a complete pilot screenplay.
"Nothing really changed with how I wanted to execute the character once I found out he was gay, I was just honored that [executive producer] Kenny [Ortega] trusted me with a character that I thought had a really important message for a younger generation to watch," Joyner said. "I just wanted to play him earnestly, respectfully, and do something people would be proud of."
On playing Gay Character
Twilight actor Boo Stewert played Joyner's love interest, Willie, in the series. Joyner says Stewart was easy to work professionally and that in turn led to them turning into real-life friends.
"The day he landed in Vancouver, I think we were filming one of our biggest scenes the next day, he shot me a text and came over to my apartment," Joyner remembered. "We went over the scenes for a couple of hours and it was like we had been friends forever. Plus it’s not that tough to act like you’re in love with Booboo Stewart."
Joyner hopes that his character's storyline with Willie would continue in the future plotlines. I would hope we get to see a little more from Willie and Alex, maybe a couple more adventures with them on location," he said. "I’d like a couple more dance moments from Alex, but I’m sure Kenny Ortega will come through with those."
The first season of the show ended in 2020. The fans are now awaiting the second season.

"I truly love him. He's like family to me now. And when we wrapped 'Knight Squad' I was really upset we weren't going to be working together anymore, and then fast forward a few months and we booked another series together," she shared. "It was the coolest thing to be able to go from one series to the next. He was one of the first friends I made in LA, we met on the pilot of 'Knight Squad'. Knowing someone for so long definitely has its advantages when it comes to working with them again. Cause I know how he works, I know how he thinks."
