The Drop, a new Hulu original comedy, follows a married couple and the issues they face in their relationship when one of them drops a baby while they’re on a tropical vacation.

Jermaine Fowler, who plays Mani, took the time to sit for a conversation with uInterview founder Erik Meers to discuss what he thinks the film says about relationships.

“They’re not perfect. Relationships aren’t perfect,” Fowler responded. Your partner is not perfect and you don’t have to do things the way society or even your parents have done them. You can have an unconventional relationship, an unconventional love. It’s fine. I think those are things we’re faced with today. Those questions like, ‘What is love?’ I feel like this movie sort of speaks to that in a lot of ways and I feel like every character is going through their individual sort of prices. They’re all spiraling in a lot of ways. Their love is being tested during this s— vacation.”

He also revealed the most difficult scene he has ever shot.

“The breakup scene next to the pool was the most difficult scene I’ve ever shot emotionally because we would start the first take and I’d begin not crying and then by the end of it, I would be crying,” Fowler said. “When Sarah, our director, would say ‘Don’t wipe those tears, we’re going to do it again,’ I had to stay in that very dark place and it from a hundred and get to a thousand. The takes would get more and more emotional and more and more heartbreaking.”

The Drop is now available to stream on Hulu.
