Shane on the other ‘F’ word

Irish Daily Mail - - News -

‘THE word was used by the char­ac­ter be­cause it fit­ted with the way she would speak and with her char­ac­ter. She is not sup­posed to be a nice per­son, or even a whole­some per­son. ‘She is a woman of a cer­tain gen­er­a­tion at a cer­tain time in his­tory and she is down on her luck and des­per­ate. Her di­a­logue is as ac­cu­rate as I could make it but she is not in­tended to of­fend! She is just sup­posed to be an au­then­tic char­ac­ter and not all char­ac­ters in songs and sto­ries have to be evil or nasty in or­der to tell the story ef­fec­tively. If peo­ple don’t un­der­stand that I was try­ing to ac­cu­rately por­tray the char­ac­ter as au­then­ti­cally as pos­si­ble then I am ab­so­lutely fine with them bleep­ing the word but I don’t want to get into an ar­gu­ment.’
