Netflix You series created quite a buzz. In all the craziness with the saga of Joe Goldberg, people are weirdly fascinated by our toxic couple Joe and Love. The show is about Joe Goldberg played by Penn Badgley, a psycho serial killer who fixates on women using every tool at his disposal to become close to her.

We can see the comfort and understanding level among the actors, like when they did the 'prank' video with Victoria, it shows the level of comfort. Plus, both Penn and Victoria have similar thoughts about the character of Joe and love. 

"(You is) completely romanticized, and Joe and Love aren't real people. But I find true crime shows are often exaggerated and make people scared of going outside their house, and I can't do that to myself.

The actress added, "I am already perfectly aware of how scared I should be in the world. I don't need to stir more of that up."

Penn also thinks about how people should not romanticize the crazy relationship of the series. They are aware of the fact that Love and Joe are problematic characters who people should not idolize.

Penn and Victoria both speak of each other highly and carry a sense of respect that actors must have to bring out the chemistry on screen.
