After months of back and forth banter over social media, Aidan Gallagher finally got to meet one of his idols, Frank Iero. According to his Instagram, the Umbrella Academy actor checked out the Frank Iero And The Future Violents show with Taking Back Sunday at the Hollywood Palladium last evening.
The pair started interacting over Twitter when fans begged for the Umbrella Academy character to take on Iero’s name.

Not long after that, Iero took things a step further and made a video talking to one of his children about the star.
“So the kid from that show, his name is Aidan Gallagher,” Iero says. “He’s in daddy’s friend’s Gerard’s show. He’s a character named Five. And he’s psyched that I know who he is.”
