They were committed to their characters and both of them are terrific artists in their own right. We’re all very lucky that people liked it as much as they did,” he said. Not one to shy away from sharing his ideas, Gosling thought it would be appropriate for Noah to burn down what had become his character’s life’s work.“[Ryan] wants to talk to you about what he’s gonna do.
