[Frank Darabont] said, ‘I’ve got an idea for Daryl. He’s gay. Would you be interested in that?’ I was like, ‘Let me hear you out.’ He said, ‘Well, he’s prison gay - like, you’ll catch him looking at a member of the same sex, but if you mention it to him, he’ll just stab you and be like ‘what the fuck?’ - he will never admit it.’ I was like, ‘That’ll blow minds - let’s do that.’ And he said, ‘I knew I hired you for a reason.’

In 2NE1, I feel fierce CL is the brain of the group, pretty Dara is the face, 8D Bom is the limbs and the talented & dependable maknae Minzy is the backbone of the group. They are all important and necessary for that unique essence and dynamics that 2NE1 represents and no other girl group can imitate.
