I will also give my opinion on one thing that an actor has publicly commented about. There are those who say that Darren Criss only says what his "handlers" tell him to. He said (wish I could find the quote) that he said what he wanted to. That idea, anyway. Considering some of the things he says, I totally believe that. That's not someone who's being controlled. My take on it, anyway. I agree with a lot of the things he says, but have my moments of thinking, "Did he actually say that?" on some of what he says. And those were interview quotes that were publicly recorded.
The actors' work has given me many hours of entertainment, and I wish them well. Some of their public comments are pretty entertaining, too, in my opinion.
