And that has what to do with a character in a movie or series?

Weinstein used the "fake news" BS as well. But of course with Trump all the women are lying. SMH

At least 17 women have accused [Trump] of assaulting or violating them

Funny how you complain about fake news about Hillary (that maybe 3% of Americans read) but believe everything about Trump (many of which the MSM spreads). At least Trump DoJ is going after these producers who abuse women. Hillary and Obama just took their money and turned the blind eye.

Well, mebbe if Trump wouldn't boast of such exploits on video people would be less inclined to believe the stories.

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.

That you donīt separate the professional life of a person from their private life, if you got access to that information. It factors into how you view them.

Or do you watch the Cosby Show today and think Bill is such a family guy. Great show.

I am not a fan of the direction a lot of Maria threads have taken over the last 12 months.
The undertone is very disappointing, aggressive and the comments are sometimes rude to a player just trying to earn a living, playing her hardest and having a good amount of success given her god given, natural talents.

Hmmm. I'll take the responsibility for not clearly expressing what I mean. Let me put it a different way - characters in a movie or series are not the actors who fill that role. If Daniel Radcliffe was to commit the most horrific crime it wouldn't change my Harry Potter fandom.

To use another example: would you expect a fan of Dexter to be bummed out by learning Michael Hall is a nice guy who wouldn't hurt a fly?

No Iīd be bummed out to find out that Dexter is a lumberjack.

Okay in the concept of a franchise character like Harry Potter, Jack Sparrow or James Bond youīd be able to accept a different actor portraying the role. If thatīs what you mean I agree.

Hmmm. That's not what I mean. If Daniel Radcliffe committed a horrific act it wouldn't affect my liking for Harry Potter even if Radcliffe continued to fill the role. In fact I'd rather he did.

Not sure how to be any clearer - characters are their own entities. An actor is his/her own person. Different "people." It's even more pertinent in this thread because as more actors have spoken up I've realized that many of the people who are filling out the roles of characters I like are wussies. That doesn't mean I'll be any less of a fan of those characters.

Okay. Then you and I are just different. I canīt separate an actor being a sex offender or murderer from his acting work. Tax evasion, petty theft, drugs or alcohol fine, but I draw a line at murder and rape.

Okay. Yeah, to me actors are secondary to characters and stories. Another example of that is I don't get the celebrity thing about actors - at all. In my ideal set-up, every show would be street-cast.

Okay. Yeah, to me actors are secondary to characters and stories. When I watch a show I'm not thinking about who the actor is or what has transpired in that actor's life. Another example of that is I don't get the celebrity thing about actors - at all. In my ideal set-up, actors would be "nameless" and every show would be street-cast.
