I can understand not wanting to see an actor as any other character, especially if you become very invested in the character. Even if you separate Elyes from Walter, the visual connection between Elyes' face and the character of Walter is very strong. If you see Elyes being himself - like in an interview or on IG - that's Elyes and you fundamentally know that and know it's not Walter. But if Elyes is being an actor and playing a character - that comes too close to the correlation of Elyes and Walter. There is a very good chance that Elyes in another role would do something that is very un-Walter, and that can distort the image you have of the character of Walter - and image you want to preserve. Even if you can consciously accept that it's a completely different character, subliminally you may not be able to.

I had something of the same thing with Leonard Nimoy and Spock. The only thing that allowed me to accept - and even enjoy - Leonard playing other characters was the fact that he was never in the Spock makeup when playing other characters. So he didn't really look like Spock and so there wasn't that subliminal connection.

GoT is a good example of that. There's a lot of violence in that show, a lot of sexual violence, and I have no idea what Elyes' character may have done. I don't want to know, and a lot of it ties into me not wanting to have those images in my head when I associate him so closely to Walter.

I haven't rewatched those seasons of GoT for precisely that reason.

I haven't watched any GoT. Considering how popular it is/was, I managed to completely miss it.

I probably would not have stuck with GoT except that my sister-in-law liked it and she didn't get HBO, so she watched it with me.

I wouldn't have any interest anyway due to all the violence.

I wonder what Elyes is doing for Thanksgiving? I guess he's been living in the US for long enough now - and he has plenty of American friends - that he probably throws himself into the party.

Good point! Who knows? He could be anywhere working on his "secret project".

I get the impression he is still living in the US, although I could be totally wrong.

I thought he was too, only because of the videos and photos he occasionally posts and the charity work he does.

Given his love of wine, I bet he loves living so close to the California vineyards.

Or if he has left the US, maybe he's moved to another wine growing part of the world instead? Italy, perhaps? France? Even Australia?

He speaks French, so he could definitely move to France.

A lot of people in France speak English anyway.
