Mescal’s Answer To People’s Comment (Normal People)
Mescal says that the word “millennial love story ” can be used for the basic description for the series but there is much more to the story. A novel can’t be described by taking a small portion or part of the whole story. “To be honest, most of the people I know are meeting over apps. That’s not the case with Connell and Marianne” he said.
In Mescal’s words, one cannot put those two into a label like “millennial”. There is something extraordinary about them. A title like that will not describe their character. Besides, both of them have way more interesting sides. Edgar-Jones recently shared her awkward experience happened during the audition and her way to the selection. Besides, Mescal cannot cope with the idea of not being together with Marianne in the story. So, he made his own happy ending in his mind.
