In 2015, Monaghan and Fisher gave an interview, via Shameless US News about their off-screen relationship after the intimate nature of the series' opening scenes were mentioned.

According to Fisher, all the intimate scenes he has with Monaghan "are kind of odd, but it makes it a lot easier being buddies with Cam."

"And, hey, it's our job," Monaghan noted, adding that while many of their scenes were awkward, as was the fact that their friends and families were watching, he knew that "what we say to each other [was] a lot worse than anything anyone [could have] ever say to us."

While Monaghan left Shameless in 2018, he ultimately returned to the show, and to Fisher, to continue on with the love story of "Gallavich," a moniker given to the relationship his and Fisher's characters shared.

“That was something that felt worth going back to,” Monaghan said during an interview with Entertainment Weekly in 2019. “There’s still a lot of story to tell. We’ve never really had these characters just together in a somewhat stable environment for very long, so that’s been fun to explore."

Looking back at the time their characters spent behind bars, Monaghan and Fisher said that being cellmates wasn't great for their relationship.

“It turns out that living in cramped quarters without much break from one another is not necessarily all that conducive to a healthy relationship,” Fisher stated. “It’s basically living together in the worst studio apartment you can possibly imagine.”

“Like any romantic relationship, you need a healthy level of distance and separation, and that’s something not afforded to them. They’re in a challenging place and trying to work through their issues," added Monaghan.
