Russell Tovey had a lot of fun working with Wentworth Miller in last month’s four-way crossover between “Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl” and “Legends of Tomorrow.”

In a recent interview with the New York Times, Tovey said that Miller is one of the nicest guys he has worked with. “He’s so supremely Zen and open,” Tovey said of the “Prison Break” alum. “We had the best time [working in the crossover] and we hung out outside of filming and he’s become a friend.”

On “Crisis on Earth-X,” Tovey played The Ray while Miller portrayed Citizen Cold. Both characters are gay superheroes, and their romantic relationship was one of the highlights of this year’s Arrowverse crossover.

“It made me very happy,” Tovey said of the viewers’ positive feedback to The Ray and Citizen Cold’s relationship, before revealing that Miller also felt the same way. “I said [to Wentworth], ‘People are liking us; the Ray and Cold together.’ He was thrilled.”

While a lot of fans would love to see their love story carry over to CW Seed’s “Freedom Fighter: The Ray,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim revealed that viewers won’t see Citizen Cold, aka Leo Snart, in the new animated series. “There isn’t [a Leo in this world],” Guggenheim told TVLine. “Because we conceived of this before Leo was a twinkle in our eye. Maybe, if there’s a Season 2…? And Wentworth is up for it? That would be great.”

Although Miller already announced his imminent departure from the Arrowverse early last month, the actor might still end up voicing Citizen Cold in the potential Season 2 of “Freedom Fighters: The Ray,” as working on animated series is less demanding than filming live-action shows.

While the six-episode first season won’t feature the character of Citizen Cold, Tovey said that the show’s debut season is filled with interesting relationship stories. “You’re going to see a lot of The Ray’s friendships and how, in a parallel world, they are different,” the 36-year-old actor told the New York Times. “The scripts are so well written, beautiful and moving. When I read the scripts, I was sobbing at one point. I was really, really touched by the story. This is a guy who is gay and what he’s going through and what becoming a superhero does to him.”

“Freedom Fighters: The Ray” Season 1 is set to be released on Friday, Dec. 8 on CW Seed.
