This blogger’s personal thoughts on a recent interview, with Martin Freeman, that has gotten quite a fan reaction. As quoted on Martin Freeman.com. ‘Being in Sherlock isn’t fun for me anymore’ was quite a misleading title. Telegraph chose that title as a way get a reaction out of people, and it did! A lot of tabloid sites have been playing off this title all weekend! But there’s so much more to that interview!
Martin talks about his roles in Black Panther, Sherlock, Fargo, Startup, personal things, his new TV series Breeders, being a mod, music etc.. For Martin’s full interview, if you have premium access to the Telegraph you can read it here. Otherwise, you can read it here from a tumblr post. [This last paragraph, with the links was also a quote from Martin Freeman.com, a brilliant site, if you haven’t checked it out yet!]
Martin Freeman’s a very talented man, who I can say I’ve personally met! And when I did meet him, he was so sweet to the fans gathered around him! He loves his fans! As for his comments on Sherlock in his interview..
Things that happened after Sherlock Season Four, on Twitter and Tumbler haven’t gone unnoticed by the actors! I heard Mark Gatiss had to block fans over some harsh words, and Steven Moffat.. I can’t believe the way some fans have treated him! Moffat chatted with me during the last Sherlocked event, and I gave him nothing but encouraging words. He’s a brilliant writer, whom shouldn’t be treated with disrespect.
The whole norbury and queerbaiting thing on Twitter.. all of us Sherlock fans witnessed that, most of us die hard fans were sickened by it, myself included. I love the Johnlock stories and fan art, but I would never attack these actors, writers or producers of the show, because I haven’t seen these two characters in a relationship. That’s not what they want for these characters, as Martin’s mentioned in his interview.
I’m very hopeful for a Season Five, even if it’s years from now, and I don’t need the show to place John and Sherlock in a relationship to enjoy it! It’s brilliant just as it is!
So now I’ve shared my thoughts.. Always an adoring fan of Sherlock and the talented men and women involved with the show!
