Apparently one Umbrella Academy actor was a fan of My Chemical Romance long before the premier of the Netflix series based on Gerard Way’s comics.

Aidan Gallagher, the 15-year-old actor who plays Number Five  in the series, posted a video of himself covering “Cancer” by MCR back in 2017.

“Starring in this mind blowing action series with me is Ellen Page, Robert Sheehan, Tom Hopper, David Castaneda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, and Justin H. Min,” the caption reads. “PLEASE RUSH TO A BOOKSTORE AND GO READ THIS AWARD WINNING COMIC BOOK!”
