Fans have been shocked at how different Moon Knight is, even though it doesn’t really have a direct connection with the MCU at the moment. Isaac has received a lot of praise for his acting in the series and the actor has admitted it wasn’t easy to play a character with Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID).

DID means that Moon Knight has several personalities which fans see as the show transitions back and forth between the former gift shop clerk, Steven Grant, and Mercenary Marc Spector. The show has also teased that fans will soon see Marc’s third personality, Jake Lockley in the last third of the season.

While talking to TheWrap, Isaac revealed that he actually had some help from his brother with his performance in Moon Knight. Isaac admitted that it was awesome to have his brother in his “corner” as it helped him get into character faster:

“You know who really was my co-star throughout this whole thing was my brother. I had my brother, Michael Hernandez, he’s an actor, as well. I had him either play Steven or Marc, depending on the scene. “It’s the closest thing to me there is, is my little bro. So it was actually fantastic to have him there in my corner to be able to work with.”

Not many actors can say that they had help from their families while working on large projects. Besides being a really cool opportunity, it does make sense why Isaac’s brother helped him stay in character. Fans may have to wait to learn more about how much help Isaac got from his brother until Marvel releases the documentary discussing the behind-the-scenes for Moon Knight.
