How did you come up with Duncan and Roswell's back story?

How difficult is it to play a character who has a much lower intelligence than yourself as a person?

was it strange playing pretty different characters? did you feel crazy in the one (i think it was only one episode) where Duncan confronted Rodswell and you had to talk to yourself?

I love Duncan! It's always a treat to have Dan in G1!

 

Did you always have Duncan's backstory waiting to be shown?

How badly did you want to get to Duncan's story?

When Duncan died, how disappointed were you that you never got to the backstory?

What led to the decision to make Duncan so naive?

Are there any more things like "the talk" that you'd love to put Duncan through?

When's the next Bottomless Joy concert?

That was actually one of my questions as  well. That was one of the best RP moments on the show when Duncan confronted Rodswell for being a coward. How much prep went into that whole scene and is that how to imagined Rodswell to go out?

Will Duncan be looking for that special someone in every town they go to now?! Did Dan listen to Danielle's episodes?!

As much as I love Dan playing Duncan, I actually think Rodswell was the more interesting character and kind of what to hear more about Dan descent into madness with playing him. I’ll just list a few talking points as I think of them.

 

  • Did Rodswell simply become an unfun character to play towards the end of his run before Duncan came back?
  • Would Duncan ever return to full time Dwarf life if given the opportunity or is he happy being the wandering bard?
  • If the worst should ever happen to Duncan, do you think you have another character in you?
  • I remember there being a debate between Dan and Jason (one of many in that era of the show) about a power of Rodswell’s doing damage to some children, want to go into that some more?
  • I’m guessing you’ll go into this, but was getting rid of Rodswell on the cards before the rod of wonder gave us the good fortune of Duncan’s return and did Rodswell have any regret for leaving the group behind and then betraying them?
  • How much preparation on your part did the final confrontation between Duncan and Rodswell have and did it go how you wanted it to?

Polished this off today! I could listen to Dan and Jason just chitchat about whatever. I thought the conversation was very insightful and interesting, the interactions behind the scenes were great new bits of info, and I really like how you walked through the thinking behind both characters. And though it's been said over and over, Dan's performance in 100 was A+

 

All that said, I wonder what you think now? G1 has been shuffled around again, and 200 is come and gone. I'd like to hear another chat after all of this to get Dan's perspective on everything that's been happening.

 

Also, how are you doing? I know your health isn't the best, and I hope you can be healthy enough to maybe rejoin the show to mitigate the boredom you felt last time you took a break :)
