"We more or less got straight into business of working and forging a great connection and a friendship, and that hasn't changed," he explained.

The actor added: "Wentworth is one of my closest friends, we're kind of like brothers, honestly. It's been cool."

Dominic and Wentworth were instrumental in bringing the hit series back, after reminiscing about the good times they had while making the show when they were both appearing on The Flash.
