Are Cameron Monaghan And Noel Fisher From Shameless Friends In Real Life?

"Shameless" might be the most prominent British import this side of "The Office." While television shows and movies that were successful in other countries are regularly remade or reimagined for North American audiences, few are able to take off and run for as long as Showtime's version of the British comedy-drama has.

Having run for an impressive 11 seasons, the "Shameless" remake has endeared itself to fans in much the same way that the original series did, by following the dysfunctional lives of the Gallagher family as they navigate the many difficulties of living below the poverty line.

On the other hand, "Shameless" has also been praised for its nuanced look at same-sex couples, as seen in the ongoing relationship between Ian Gallagher (Cameron Monaghan) and Mickey Milkovich (Noel Fisher) throughout the series. Still, given how many scenes the duo has shared in the comedy-drama, fans might find themselves wondering how the two performers get on in real life.

The two remain friendly off-screen, despite some awkwardness

As recounted by The Things, Cameron Monaghan and Noel Fisher gave a magazine interview that gave fans a behind-the-scenes look at how the two interact when they're not on-screen. Unsurprisingly, they are very friendly, but they admit that their love scenes occasionally feel awkward to shoot.

"[They] are kind of odd, but it makes it a lot easier being buddies with Cam," explained Fisher. Though, for his part, Monaghan noted how strange it is knowing that their friends and family are watching the show. He still said the experience remains a positive one for him. "What we say to each other is a lot worse than anything anyone can ever say to us," he concluded, saying that they tease each other about their love scenes often.

Well, if the ongoing support from the fan community is any indication, the two actors have definitely pulled off a convincing lasting romance in "Shameless."  Furthermore, as they move past their roles in the long-running comedy-drama, the two remain friendly and supportive of one another.
