Summer In February: Dan's Today Show interview
To promote this month's US release of Summer In February, Dan was interviewed this afternoon, on NBC's Today Show. A video of the interview has been uploaded to the Today Show website.
"A lot of people were quite upset by that," Stevens admitted on TODAY Thursday morning. "I spend a lot of my time apologizing. Yeah, I get a lot of, 'My wife was very upset by this. You have to apologize to my wife!' Then they call them over. 'Katherine! Come over here. This is the young man that upset you.' 'Say sorry!' You have to apologize, in public ... a lot, almost every day." While it was Stevens himself who decided to leave the show, he wasn't expecting the response his departure sparked. "I suppose it was a surprise," he said. "It's a testament to how much people love the show, how much people love the character. In a way it was nice, but it has upset a lot of people, so I'm sorry."
