First, I must thank Reeve for the magic he made in ‘Orpheus,’” said Fisher, who is also known for his work in the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and Teen Beach Movie franchises, in an earlier statement. “An absolutely historic run and performance. His unrelenting heart and soul is deeply embedded in this role and in this story. I’m beyond honored and grateful for the opportunity to step in and steward such a beautifully crafted character. My wife, son, and I have been jamming to the cast album for a long time. It’s been a dream to be able to join the party! Specifically in this role. This tale is one that truly must be told again and again.”
