Bailey, who grew up in Yorkshire, is both genuine and genuinely nice in person. When you first meet him, he is exceedingly hospital and chipper ("Can I get you an espresso?).

He comes off as engaging, charming, and reflective, whether the subject is his personal life or what he happens to be wearing that afternoon.
