As he adjusts to his newfound fame, Paul Mescal, the recent breakout star of Hulu’s latest series, “Normal People,” spoke with Variety about the show and his choice of accessory that has blown the internet away.

His character Connell’s silver chain has become one of the most popular elements of the show, earning its own Instagram fan account, which has already amassed more than 38,000 followers.

When asked what made him choose the specific chain out of all of the options costume designer Lorna Marie Mugan gave him, Mescal said, “It’s like Harry Potter, the wand chooses you.”
