The 22-year-old Irish singer tweeted, "@girlsHBO absolutely hilarious. Love your work," to say how much he loved the show and it caught the eye of its creator Lena.

The actress returned the compliment three days later on Instagram with the same quick wit she is famous for onscreen, adapting the lyrics of One Direction song Perfect.

"But if you like having panic attacks up in hotel rooms. And if you like a lot of complex fear stuff around men and sex. If you like to do the things you're too ashamed to admit to anyone but your therapist.Then baby, I'm perfect," she quipped in reply.

The real lyrics are: "And if you like midnight driving with the windows down. And if you like going places we can’t even pronounce. If you like to do whatever you've been dreaming about. Then baby, you're perfect."

Perfect was written by bandmates Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson and taken from their last studio album Made in the A.M. It reached the top 10 in several countries, including the U.K., U.S., France, and reached the number one spot in Niall's native Ireland.
