The Cast of Netflix's 'Grand Army' Play 'How Well Do You Know Your Co-Star'

The actors are clearly BFFs in real life.

Thanks to a talented cast and a gritty plot about the real world problems high schoolers face, teen drama Grand Army has become one to watch on Netflix (opens in new tab). The show, which debuted on the streaming platform earlier this month, follows a diverse group of Brooklyn students as they navigate a traumatic incident that forces them to blur the lines of their cliques. While the issues addressed on the show are heavy, the actors clearly had a tons of fun off-screen.

Amir Bageria, Odessa A'zion, Maliq Johnson, Amalia Yoo, and Odley Jean came together to play Marie Claire's trivia game How Well Do You Know Your Co-Star, and, spoiler alert, it's pretty damn well. The Grand Army cast didn't miss a beat when they had to weigh in on each others' star signs, pet names, and secret musical talents.

Bageria, who plays Siddhartha Pakam on the Netflix drama, notes how amazing it is that the cast managed to bond so much, considering most of them barely or never appeared together on screen. "I feel like we all really did get close doing stuff outside of filming, but I feel like the five of us really didn't work together a lot," he says during the game.

To hear how the cast became fast friends, watch the video above, and be sure to check out Grand Army season 1 on Netflix. (opens in new tab)
