Master Chief had a romance and even had sex in the first season of the Halo TV show, and according to Master Chief actor Pablo Schreiber, it was a “huge mistake.” In the latest issue of SFX Magazine The relationship between Master Chief and Mickey (Charlie Murphy) was a bad idea that he unsuccessfully tried to stop.
“The decision to make Mickey and John a romantic relationship was a huge mistake,” Schreiber said.via GamesRadar). “At the time I felt it was a big mistake and I argued against it and fought it. But I am who I am. I don’t write the script. I just speak my mind. It wasn’t listened to.”
Many Halo viewers didn’t enjoy the storyline either, and the sex scene in particular angered some because Cortana herself was standing by watching it.
Halo returns for its second season in February. Joseph Morgan (The Originals) and Christina Rodello (Too Old To Die Young) join the cast for Season 2, reprising the roles of James Akerson and Talia Perez, respectively.
Season 2 is hosted by David Weiner (Flesh and Bones, Fear the Walking Dead), who replaces Kyle Killen and Stephen Keen, who co-hosted the first season.
