While Nathan Fillion has one of the most sterling reputations out there as a de facto geek god for almost everything that he does, the past few weeks may be a little bit more difficult for him thanks to some stories that came out about him missing a Friday “Castle” shoot date as a protest for a shorter work week. We’ve written a good bit more about this here including our defense for him on the matter, so we’re not going to get too much into it and just rehash what is already out there.
Instead, we wanted to share what Fillion’s co-star is saying about that and more. Speaking in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Stana Katic acted as though everything was more than fine in the “Castle” world, and there is no drama directly impacting production:
“I don’t know what rumors you are hearing, but we are still having a great time on set and we are still making what I think is a great TV show. I hope that rests everything. … I worked with [Nathan] today and it was great. … Things are good.”
In other words? Don’t worry. If there are any issues going on, they are being dealt with behind the scenes, and not impacting what is presently happening on set.
Meanwhile, Katic also gave us a little bit of something to look forward to when it comes to some of her upcoming scenes with Lisa Edelstein:
“It’s been a wonderful pleasure to work with her. And she always goes, ‘We should make this a spin-off. If they need a spin-off, it is us two right here.’ So I guess judging by that, she’s glad she joined us too. She’s so lovely and respectful of the story we’ve cooked up until now and also of the one we are developing at this point.”
