He sounds very down to earth and he seems fully aware of what people think of his character. He's more sensitive to the Jack fans and Jack and Jen fans then the writers appear to be, that's for sure.

Thanks. I really enjoyed this interview.
I don't know about his acting ability. I'm not saying he can't act, but I don't see any particular effort to distinguish himself or make Daniel more complex. I don't see layers.

Part of it's the writing, I'm sure, but part of it is that he doesn't seem inspired at all.
I keep hoping that Daniel will turn out to be a freak who's poisoning people in Salem so that he can "save" these people and play the big hero. That would actually be an intriguing storyline and would fit with Daniel's savior complex and his inappropriate relationships with his female patients.

Seriously, if DAYS just acknowledged that Daniel is a total pervert, it could be the start of some awesome storylines. Of course, I seriously doubt that DAY will ever stop its Daniel propping, but hope does spring eternal....

Anyway, Shawn Christian seems like an awesome guy, and he's certainly got a much clearer view of Daniel than the DAYS writers do.
