always forgetting adam


“The first episode that I was on, we go and have a beer together, and it’s extraordinary writing-wise to look at the dialogue from that scene. It maps out the next four years of our relationship.

Things I always forget about LL

1. Adam is around 19
2. One was only 14 when she died
3. Adam is a bookworm and a brilliant stratigist. I mean, he got the highest marks when he was in the academy for his papers on it. Foo isn’t just a computer nerd.
4. Sarah is older than John
5. One would be 19 or 20 if she was still alive
6. A Loric accent sounds similar to french
7. Even though Adam is lean, he’s not weak. After he came back from Africa he trained in the academy for about 3 years, including combat.
