White would rule out the idea though, if he got to reunite with his onscreen brothers, Zac Efron and Harris Dickinson in the process. He continued, “I’d be so excited to, but only if Zac and Harris were there with me and if I had time to prepare.”

White won his first Emmy Award on Monday night for his role in FX’s The Bear. Speaking about the success of the series, which has been sweeping awards season, the actor said he was only ever hoping to touch the restaurant industry through this work.

Before shooting the pilot, he remembered thinking, “If the culinary world takes notice of this, we’ve done something right. That’s what we’re aiming for.”

As for the show, White says: “We knew it was special, but we’ve all been very surprised and blown away by the reach.”
