And you’ve seen him on shows that go bad, and so they’re all nervous, but like Ross said, with those three in particular, and Dacre [Montgomery] also, who played Billy, it was like, because these actors are amazing, it’s really fun. I just like to shake it up, so we shake it up by changing the plot or adding a new monster. We do our best to resist [adding new characters] for season 5. We’re trying not to do that so we can focus on the OG characters, I guess.
