Akeno 'Aki' Menzies | Evan Mock Appreciation Thread #1 - Golden boy

Akeno 'Aki' Menzies



Youngest son of our 88-year-old Rupert Murdoch-type, Australian right wing media mogul Roger Menzies.
His mom Jodi Menzies (now divorced from Roger) is a high-powered corporate connector.
Aki’s been with Audrey basically since birth - just as long as he’s been Obie’s best friend.
Aki and Jodi live in a Central Park South sky tower - literally higher than the clouds.




"I don’t like to stick out."

At the end of S1, I can confirm he's my favorite character and Evan is also awesome, how can you not love him?

Same! He's so nice and sweet, I wonder how many secret crushes like Rex he has


Evan commented this Aki post and it's weird also I'ìm not sure I got the meaning of the comment, doesn't he like Nicki Minaj (people in the comments say the caption is from one of her songs)

Old interview, found now

Meanwhile it's been a few days since Aki's IG has been deactivated, as they often do with those accounts wondering when they'll activate it back

Nice and interesting interview, super recent (he says he's enjoying his time off in Hawaii and that in January they start filming S2).

I need Aki's IG back (but just if he doesn't post more pics of him and Audrey)

No idea. They do that now and then, in turns. At first I thought it was just something that had to do with the episodes, like after episode 4 when Max account desappeared and reappeared only after episode 5 (you'll understand why when you watch the episodes). But then they started doing it with no apparent reason

Deactivating Aki would have had sense one month ago, when ep 7-9 were released and Aki in ep 7 has a little problem when GG posts one of his old TikTok videos, but they didn't. So why now? And it's been more than a week. They keep updating his Letterboxd, though, with ratings, new movies in his watchlist, new reviews and also replies to comments people leave on his reviews.

At first I thought that it's because they're not always active so they don't want Instagram to delete them, so they "take a break", but they're managed by five people plus an external agency, so it's not just one person who does it and then gets too busy.

Thanks for that. It just seems so weird. But sometimes based on what you say it makes sense and is actually pretty cool.

And they keep updating almost daily the other accounts, so why leave Aki's out? Why deactivate only that one? It's been weeks now, they never left an account off for so long and soon it won't have sense to activate it again to post Christmas/NYE pics like they've been doing with the other accounts, since the holiday time will be over. His will be the only profile without those pics - why would someone post Christmas pics in the middle of January? Not even a tv show character would.

It just has no sense, to me. Also Aki's one of my favorite characters and before deactivating they posted basically only pics with Audrey, so I hate it even more
