Seeing it get smashed up had a weird effect on me, because it’s quite an important place to us – it’s where we grew up. It’s gonna look really cool, though.” They also called his performance with the scene of Fred’s death “impressive”. I thought it a very good sign for them to even note this moment in their write-up!
