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.
According to the caption, he recorded the cover when the series began shooting in Toronto.
“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!”
He sings and plays piano in the cover that has brought us to tears because it’s so adorable. You can watch it for yourself below, but be prepared for the tears to flow.
