  • Reminiscing. (And WHO ARE THOSE IMPOSTERS playing Maddie & Daphne in what's obviously first draft of pilot?)…

  • I never cared about Gunnar and Scarlett as a couple and I don't know why. I cared about them invidually (sometimes) but not them as OTP.

…When you try to leave your idea about the story at the door—[it’s] so much like what you do with the person in your life that you love. You come back to them again and again and try to intuit their real expansiveness, and you try to keep them close to you, you try to give them the benefit of the doubt. So in that sense you could see revision as a sort of act of love, it’s actually love in progress, I guess.”
