They boy who plays Peter is a dreadful actor. It’s an interesting idea, but hard to get excited about. I wish they’d recast his role.

Wow, what a cool idea! I’m so excited to see where this journey takes Peter. Kristos Andrews is precious and is doing a great job in this role. I think he’s pretty new to acting, but I saw a ton of growth in his performances in just the first season. I bet this gives him a great opportunity to really hone his talent.
