HALO Star Pablo Schreiber Talks About a Huge Mistake in The Series That He Fought Against — GeekTyrant
HaloThe Star Pablo Schreiber recently opened up about the series and a “huge mistake” that he believes was made. That mistake was the creative team’s decision to include a Master Chief sex scene in the show’s first season between John and the human covenant spy prisoner Makee. What made that whole thing even weirder was the fact Cortana was watching them the whole time!
This is a mistake he fought against and pushed back, but ultimately lost. While talking with SFXThe actor shared that:
“The decision of making the connection between Makee, and John a romance was a big mistake. I thought that it was a mistake and I argued for it and fought it. But I’m who I am. I don’t write the scripts. I only give my opinions. It wasn’t listened to.”
This series has so many creative choices that were mistakes. This was only one of them. Fans of the game also had a problem with Master Chief removing his headgear. This was a decision that Schreiber didn’t have an issue with, obviously because the actor got to show his face. He said in an earlier interview:
“I learned early on that there are as many Halo fans as there are Halo opinions. You can’t please everyone. What I would say, is that we tailor an entertainment experience that is tailored to the medium for which it’s intended.”
“When you’re playing a first-person-shooter, the way a character is portrayed is very different from what you need when you’re producing long-form TV. You can’t take an audience on a journey with your protagonist without access to their face. It tells you how they feel and what they think. It’s the ability to see a character’s emotional journey over time that allows you to empathise and relate with them.
“I’m so sorry, but there’s no other option for long-form stories on television.” I totally respect anyone who disagrees. But it’s an excellent place to begin when you want to make a quality television show.”
This can and has been debated. It could work if the writer and storyteller are good. People still tuned in and the show was renewed. You can view the trailer for Here is a link to the article.
