“Pleasure working with you – until we meet again!” posted James Michael Douglas, the film’s writer and cinematographer. Young replied: “absolutely! 🙏🏻.”
“Such a space cadet,” quipped Aiden Turner (ex-Aidan, AMC), “for fresh breath while wearing your helmet try ORBIT spearmint gum.” Young chuckled in return: “@aidenturner ”
“Who took that picture of you while you’re in space by yourself? I smell a conspiracy…..🤔” quipped Dax Griffin (ex-Shane, BB), poking fun at moon-landing conspiracies. Young replied: “…the computer Hal, from 2001 Space Odyssey! Duh!”
