It sucks to see all the hard work put into something tainted because of a bullshit narrative. I played the games before I read the books AND THEN I got the opportunity of a lifetime to work on the sort of show I’ve always wanted to be on. And guess what? It’s still a dream job!

It’s really hard to see all the hard work end up tainted by a shitty narrative. I played the games before I read the books, and then I got the chance of a lifetime to work on the kind of show I always wanted to be on. And guess what? It’s still a dream job!”.
