“Honestly it was such a difficult experience in so many ways,” Till told Pop Culture in April 2021. He referred to MacGyver as “the most magical and formative experiences” he’s had. He added that because of his experience in the series his work ethic is different.
“I approach things completely different as an adult,” Till said, adding that it was sad they would not be returning for a sixth season. The 31-year-old actor continued, discussing some of his poignant goodbyes including to showrunner Monica Macer.
“Of course we are never going to say goodbye forever,” he added, intimating that it was a “wonderful group of people” and that they all got along as family. “It was a pretty heartbreaking Zoom call.”

He concluded, saying “She did and I was [like ‘No.. don’t go that far.’]. I was like ‘Oh my God.’”
