“It’s always exciting to be recognized and in particular to be recognized as a group,” the actor noted. “It’s nice that five years deep, going into the last season, there’s still recognition.”
While there have not been tears yet amongst his co-stars on set, Ventimiglia teased that the waterworks will surely come for fans.
“Hearing about the end, knowing about the end, yep, there’s going to be a lot of tears, but I’m grateful,” the star explained. “This is straight through, just about 18 episodes ,which is kind of remarkable. That’s something to look forward to.”
