Greg Serrano is a former main character on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. Greg is a friend of Josh and when he first met Rebecca, he was immediately attracted to her. He is portrayed by Santino Fontana.

Early Life

In, "I'm Back at Camp with Josh! " White Josh tells him, "I think your behavior reflects a deep-seated fear that if you love somebody, she'll leave you. It's probably rooted in your childhood drama." This is a correct observation. After his mother left when he was kid, Greg thought if he ever loved anyone again, they would leave as well, which created his fear of commitment and getting too close to the people he loves. Greg is self-destructive and ruins the good things he has in his life, likes his relationship with Rebecca .
