Calva also told Variety about how he feels starring as a lead role in yet another American feature after 2022’s ‘Babylon.’

Daniel Minahan, the director, he directed shows like ‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘House of Cards,’ he directed ‘Six Feet Under,’ one of my favorite shows. And I’m acting with Jacob Elordi, with Daisy Edgar-Jones, with Sasha Calle also,” he noted.
