Why White Lotus Creator Mike White Refused to Answer Meghann Fahy’s Burning Question – JP


When asked broadly by host Jimmy Fallon if she thought anything developed between Daphne and Ethan on the island, Meghann said, “Yes, I think so.” 

However, Meghann was quick to point out that she doesn’t know for sure—because they never shot anything that ended up on the cutting room floor.

“Which is what’s so cool about Mike,” Meghann argued. “I feel like he’s really interested in sort of like suggesting something and then letting the audience kind of decide how they feel about it. Sort of open to interpretation.”

For the record, Will Sharpe also agrees that something definitely went down between his character Ethan and Daphne, telling Variety in December, “I feel like whatever happened, in a literal sense, that moment between them is definitely a moment of connection. It’s a moment of intimacy. I think there’s something about Daphne’s sense of self, and the accommodation she has found with who she is, and how she’s living. Something about that, I think, affects Ethan.”

That island sure has a story to tell.
