Jonathan Bailey has been praised for his undeniable sex appeal by Phoebe Waller-Bridge. The Crashing co-stars sat down for an Interview magazine chat, during which Waller-Bridge referred to Bailey as a "chemistry machine". Bailey credited his understanding of tension to working on Waller-Bridge's sitcom, and described his character, Sam, in Crashing as being on the constant edge of an orgasm. Waller-Bridge said that Bailey's unique energy didn't come from the show, but from him. They also discussed Bailey's role in Fellow Travelers and his passion for Shakespeare. Bailey opened up about his fear of not being able to perform well, but finding freedom in roles and environments where he feels comfortable. He spoke about the pride he feels in choosing his roles, particularly his role in Fellow Travelers, which he called a "no-brainer". Bailey is also grateful for the opportunity to have choices in his career. Fellow Travelers can be streamed on Paramount+, while Bridgerton and Crashing are available on Netflix.
