Well that confirms my worst suspicions about the writing of the last season.

Considering it had already been written before the election was decided, your point is at best wrong.

I think the character of Davos would probably turn around and go, "Well, at least she's not your sister"

If Davos doesn't say that in S8, I'm gonna cry.

You should try reading the article.
Then you would know the headline is bullshiat.

He seems like a decent fellow but who gives a flying fig what an actor thinks about what his character was thinking?

Pretty sure there wasn't a show on television that wasn't influenced by it....
It has permeated into every corner of our culture.

Eh, the script was already written, but actors take personal experiences and use that to deliver a good performance.  So, the words may not have changed, but the delivery and the emotional impact of the performance may have been heavily influenced by the election.

Was.

According to the article it didn't influence anything. Maybe lent more gravity to Jon's speech but it didn't change or influence it in any way.

Like you, when I go to a concert I hope that between songs the lead singer talks about his or her political beliefs.  During interviews I look forward to hearing the political views of athletes.
/ Airline Captains with celebrities on board should talk about religion over the PA. "Oh, you hired me to perform a service and you don't want my opinions?  That's how I feel about you."
// Store cashiers should say "Here's your change, now me tell you about my home-based multilevel marketing business."
/// Even if I agree with the celeb, I don't want to hear it unless it's written so I can skip it.

DRTFA:

There's a difference I think between an actor trying to get in to the headspace of the character they are playing and a pilot talking about their beliefs and opinions to the plane. A better analogy would be saying you don't think undercover police should really work on their cover too hard. And that would probably not turn out too well.

Aye, still a student. He resigned from his job, but there is still a chance that he may learn from other, more enlightened perspectives.

The one place I felt like the Trump campaign affected the writing is in the sudden interest Cersei and the Tarlys had in adopting the right wing's language of those evil foriners.

I do, but then I'm an actor as well so I'm interested in that sort of thing.

Other people do because part of their identity is wrapped up in what entertainment they consume, or because they're bored and want something to take their mind off their troubles, or because they're curious about people and the world in general. We're a funny species that way. Anyway, he was asked a bunch of questions and he answered them well, and then the interview was published to the internet and then linked to on fark, and then you responded to it and now I'm responding to you, and none of us will know until after we die what any of it truly means or which one of us isn't wearing pants right now

I was kind of surprised Dany didn't correct Lord Tarley that she was born in Dragonstone.
