All scripts are tightly scripted. The actors are not involved at
that level. When the script lands on the stage, it's performed as
written. If an actor has a problem with a particular word or line, I'm
happy to take a suggestion or provide an alternate word. But that's it.
This is in part because with a 5-year story, with foreshadowing, changing
one word could have major repercussions. And because it's my show, and
it'll be done the way I wrote it. I didn't work five years to get this
show on the air to turn it over to any committee of any kind.
