Remember Steve’s interview with TV Line’s Michael Ausiello that came out shortly after the season finale? Ausiello left out an interesting comment that Steve made about the public’s perception of Bill Compton, and the importance of not worrying about what everyone thinks of Bill.
“One has to stop worrying about how one’s character is perceived. I think we all probably had a point in the series where you did worry about the public persona of our character. But I stopped worrying about that in Season 2. That’s not to say I don’t care. What I mean is you’re going to stop playing something authentically if you’re worried about how it’s going to be perceived.”
