New interview with Dustin:
You know why I like his character? All the characters are very serious. Well, of course right? Given the terrible circumstances they find themselves in. Lucretia (and Batiatus) are fun in a diabolical kind of way. Ashur too, to an extent. But Gannicus is just plain fun! He can be serious too, but he's fun in lovable kind of way. That's why I like him.
