Aidan said: “I was [aware of the backlash]. I remember I was so delighted at the initial reaction, because that is what you want: you want authenticity and diversity, and for people to say Lewis is great and fun.
“I was delighted and I was initially disappointed that the spoilers for this story came out so soon as I wanted to bring them on Lewis’s journey for longer. I had to make people like Lewis initially.
“If I could have a magic wand, I would have wanted that to have stretched out a bit further, but, in the same breath it has been fascinating to play that arc so quick and bring everyone on that rollercoaster.”
