But then, she decided to actually send a DM. So she reached out via Instagram and offered to buy him a smoothie. And y'all, it WORKED.

so I slid in his DM’s, and then this happened ✨

"It was hot, and I didn’t think it’d be appropriate to ask to buy him a drink, so I opted for a smoothie," Sylvia told BuzzFeed.

After a bit of back-and-forth, Michael invited her to come by the set to take a pic — no smoothie required.

They set up a time to meet, and after a brief ~struggle~ with security, Michael came and got Sylvia and her friends.

Sylvia notes that she was "fangirling so bad" while they were exchanging messages.
