If you're writing and really doing your job, you know most of your characters inside and out, forwards and back. Most of the information you will
never need for what you actually write, but all those details will help you know absolutely how to make them live on the page so that they aren't
just narrow stereotypes.
That's why so many of today's movies are so pallid, IMO. The scriptwriters of today are writing off the movies of yesterday whereas the
scriptwriters of yesterday were writing more off the novels they grew up with. They had better characters and better storylines as their examples.
