“Enough of your idle speculation, Mephisto! I breached the fortress and saw it firsthand. The Worldstone is gone! The angels I killed knew nothing about it. But since you are so perceptive, maybe you remember who else has been missing: Lilith. We must find her, rip her limb from limb, take the Worldstone back!”
-Baal, “Diablo III” (The Discovery of Sanctuary)
The fact is, the only way an actor could NOT be away of fandom — even and ESPECIALLY the bits that make the porn — is to be living up a mountain somewhere with no internet, no TV, no magazines, and to never ever talk to anyone they work with ever. And I’d be willing to bet that even before the rise of the internet, the actors were well aware of what fans were up to.
Seriously, they know. Asking them about it is usually a sad attempt at getting them flustered, and it’s just real damn rude, in my opinion. Yes, more and more actors are embracing the fandom in all it’s forms, but there are plenty more who don’t want to talk about — or are seriously weirder out by — the idea that there are people making porn featuring the characters they play. And that’s not even touching on the RPF/Art. Some folk are super-chill about it, and some aren’t, because they’re people. Tastes and tolerances vary.
So… yeah, I really don’t see the appeal of asking actors about fanfic, ESPECIALLY if you’re a “professional” interviewer. For me, it falls into the same class of questions as, say, asking any actress about how she diets to fit into the catsuit/skimpy costume.
Okay, yes, this is funny… but why on earth would anyone even ASK an actor about this, aside from some horrible, nasty desire to embarrass them?
So some people love Dagur’s characters and other’s think he’s a little too crazy.
These two gifs are some examples why I love Dagur’s character. So he’s pretty much off his rocker the entire episode but look at how hurt he looks when Hiccup just brushes off his “you could’ve been my brother, now you’re my enemy” line with “have it your way”.
Dagur does feel things, he’s not just a pile of crazy flakes.
