Following the show’s premiere, Moon Cougar’s Instagram account (@mooncougar), posted a photo of Dan playing Billy in Daisy Jones. “Tuning in to @daisyjonesandthesix on @amazonprime?? You might see a familiar face,” the band wrote as the caption.

Dan has received so much praise since his acting debut on the Amazon Prime series, specifically for how similar he looks to his older counterpart, Sam Claflin.

“Whoever cast young Billy Dunne deserves a raise cause that’s Sam Claflin’s smile and facial structure,” one fan wrote on Twitter. Another tweeted: “Young Billy Dunne I am looking very respectfully.”

Other viewers were quick to notice Dan looked similar to another male lead in an Amazon Prime series: Conrad Fisher (played by Christopher Briney) from The Summer I Turned Pretty. “Amazon Prime has the perfect adult Conrad in their machine and I don’t think they know it yet,” tweeted one fan, alongside photos of the two characters.
