Joe Locke Heartstopper

Just 24 tweets all saying how perfect Joe Locke is in Heartstopper

He is the best Charlie Spring

If you haven’t seen Heartstopper yet, what are you even doing? Based on the graphic novels by Alice Oseman, Heartstopper is the show every queer person wishes they had growing up. It’s funny, heartwarming and so relatable to everyone who’s ever had a “full on gay crisis”. Plus, the cast is absolutely amazing.

There’s one cast member in particular, though, who has captured the hearts of fans Joe Locke, who plays the main character Charlie Spring. I’m sure everyone who’s a fan of the graphic novels can agree that Joe is the perfect Charlie – the on-screen chemistry with Kit Connor, who plays Nick Nelson, is off the scale and every time he said “sorry” I just wanted to give him the biggest hug ever. Even more impressively, Joe is only 18 and it’s his first acting role – just let that sink in.
