Except that it hadn't. It ate away at for the rest of the day, and when he left Courf's apartment he found reporters on his doorstep waiting for him. He could barely separate one question from another as he pushed past them all blindly to get inside- he picked apart a few words though.

He was at an art convention in Long Island right now. He had even managed to talk him into leaving his favorite hoodie behind while he was away. Enjolras was wearing it right now. Grantaire's love was the strongest armor he had, and if he had to go to battle, he needed every reminder of it he could get. The text came, and Enjolras was in the building and up two flights of stairs before anyone seemed to notice.
A moment later he was bursting into the ballroom, eyes finding his father in an instant. He turned pale as a ghost, arm frozen mid-handshake.
For once the bastard was speechless. Silence fell over the crowd. Your son- you know, the one you spent four years beating senseless until he agreed to play nice at whatever dinner party or press conference you were having that week? That's what you called it right dad? Well here's another little secret you might not have known. Not only did you have a faggot staying under your roof for 18 miserable years, you had faggots fucking under it too!

That's exactly what I'm telling you. But security had arrived a few moments earlier to apprehend him now had to divert their focus to stopping the Mayor from strangling his son. We don't play by those rules anymore. You don't get to hit me whenever I do something you don't like. This is the man you voted for! This is the man you trust your city with!

He makes me happy and for once- for once! How did the subtext influence your performance? In particular, is there anything you can remember doing that was directly influenced by it? It influenced it hugely.
Actors are always the most exciting to watch when there is a lot going on inside their heads. So I played a very simple game with myself. I would have a little game going on in my head that involved being constantly aware of wherever Aaron was on set at ALL times. Only during takes, during the filming. A simple little trick, but it meant that whenever the camera was rolling, I would always have part of my mind focused on that.
Even if I was doing something miles away from where he was and had my attention focused on doing something else, I would always try to work out where he was. Which I was hoping at the time would read on screen. And I hope it did. Similarly, did anyone notice the subtext during or after filming, in the brick or in your performance in the film, and bring it up with you?
Like I said, a lot of people have messaged me on Twitter or sent emails or letters confirming that they saw a lot of what I was trying to convey. Which is nice, because I guess it means that it worked! But no one on the film I think had the slightest inkling.

Could you talk a little bit about your participation, your thoughts behind your participation, and about the fandom in general? Well, I never knew it existed. Not even during the filming. And then, through people involving me or people spamming me! I would say that I really think my job is about connecting with people.
And I have been told the way I played Grantaire connected with a lot of people. So continuing that theme, I thought it was only fair to engage with the fandom in that way and yeah, I guess, like you say, participate.
Why do you think this is the case? I think it is because they represent something that is very real and very timeless. We engage with art because it affects us in some way. What do you think now, looking back on your role as Grantaire in light of the response it received?
