When you know these characters so well you can get into a rut. You get caught up in what you thought their arc was. Characters become their own people and you have to keep yourself open to letting them do things that maybe you didn’t imagine for them earlier on… For me everything interesting exists in the space between who we are and who we think we should be and all internal conflict, all the stories, all these bad decisions people make – or good decisions people make – happen in that space.
