The Stranger's Shaun Dooley has shared his thoughts on all the thirsty fans who've been loving his tight shorts.
The actor plays PE teacher Doug Tripp in the hit Netflix drama, and is therefore wearing a pair of shorts pretty much every time he's visible on screen.
But he's admitted his costume didn't have the reaction he thought it would.
The 45-year-old told the Daily Star : "People are talking about the show on social media and I get messages about it.
"There has been a lot mentioned about me wearing tight shorts, which has been kind of shocking.
"I'm not sure the public need to see that but it seems to have got a lot of traction. I didn't keep them at the end of filming. I threw them at the costume director."
Lots of fans binging the show on Netflix had taken to Twitter to express their admiration for Shaun's costume.
One wrote: "Shaun Dooley is great. In his Alan Partridge shorts"
Another posted: "Gripped by #TheStranger from start to finish! Super proud of our brilliant @shaundooley , @ellaraeks and the impeccable casting by @PrissJohnCast ! Standout stars: Louis the Alpaca and Dooley’s short shorts"
While another tweeted: "#TheStranger reviews in a nutshell: 1: wow! the cast is great! 2: it's sooo good!!! 3: gripping, can't stop watching! 4: @shaundooley 's shorts"
The series is based on the novel by Harlan Coben, who helped bring it to life on screen.
It follows a man named Adam Price, whose life begins to unravel after he's approached by a stranger who tells him a shocking secret about his wife, Corinne.
The Stranger sets her sights on more people in the town, and starts blackmailing people with their secrets.
Fans immediately got hooked on the tense drama, with people binging episodes as they desperately tried to uncover the truth.
Shaun said: "The show has had an amazing reaction. The Stranger seems to have just exploded. I've never been in anything that has got this big so quickly."
TV bosses are yet to announce if the show will return for second series.
