"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."

Summer in February

The first thing that struck me in this interview was the New York twang that Dan Stevens now has - to be expected after living in NYC for 16 months- but I missed his true English accent. I guess that is part of re-inventing the new Dan Stevens and his new career. It's the price you pay when you are so talented in adopting accents as can be seen in Dan's audio books.

Roll on Swallows and Amazons so that Dan's beautiful English accent gets to be used once more- even if it is only for the duration of a movie.

No need to worry too much...

...I'm sure that Dan's beautiful, natural accent is just there under the surface! Like you I'm hoping for Swallows & Amazons to proceed, I gather that shooting has been rescheduled for this summer.

Also, his voice will surely be put to the test in his latest reported audiobook recordings - The Iliad & The Odyssey. This should be absolutely brilliant!

It was a delight to see Dan.....

....via the link today.
He is looking well and sounding good! It is certainly great news that Summer In February has finally reached the US.
