There were a lot of – because, yes, all the rumors were coming out while I was working. I had a lot of people say to me, ‘So, are you going to Comic-Con?’ and I was like, ‘No, I’m not,’ and they’re like, ‘Ahh, but you are, aren’t you?’ And I was like, ‘No, I’m not, really, I’m not, I’m not.’ [Laughs] And then, obviously, having the other secret in the back of my head, I was like, “Ah, I’m just going to have to get this one out and see what happens.” Then everyone was so disappointed, and I was like, ‘Okay, patience, patience, it will come’.
