Apologies if it's been answered before but how big of a role is it? I'm assuming someone has joined the dots together after reading the book lol.

But Purity isnt Even showing in 2017. there hadnt been any PR for it either. Nö wonder its sits only at 20.
The top notch acting in the Weisz/Craig/Spall 'Betrayal' is emotionally true, often v funny and its beautifully staged with filmic qualities..

A. Wolf is not in the complete book. The book steps for and back. For me, it was kind of difficult to memorise, where is the book at which page. In 1954? In 1974? In 1989? In the 2015? IMO, all characters of the book carring an "guilt" with them and they are in worry and sorry how to deal with it, how to live with the fear it will be explored anywhen...and it will explored...at the end. A. Wolf ends with to comm...
(A. Wolf is a verkorskste* person...like all the other characters in the book, IMO.)

I read somewhere, that the character is not all that much in it. Daniel is producing, so maybe that's fine. On the other hand, they gonna market the thing with him, so hopefully, his part will be dressed up a bit.

When Jonathan Franzen was a guest on 'Late Night with Seth Meyers' he spoke briefly about the book and said that Pip 'Purity' Taylor and Andreas Wolf were the main characters, and that the show would follow the book.

Not exactly sure what he means by 'would follow the book', but if he means in terms of characters, than yes Andreas isn't in it that much at all. Unless he means the chapters, they may expand the characters, though that would make them less intriguing I feel.

At points during the book Andreas is present but in the form of a text message or email. There is one or two chapters on Andreas which covers his youth to (I think) his 20s, and a very powerful ending for the character, which I am very intrigued to see how that will be portrayed. And yes, his character is sex obsessed, so goodluck with that Showtime censors.

Obviously, in the scenes about his youth Daniel can't play a child or a teenager, but I guess he could pull off college age.

They began production shooting already yes? (If I recall, 27 December?)

Debating reading the book first...or just wait until I can fast forward through the scenes with him. :)
