I think the fans have trouble separating the actor from the character because for 32 episodes, we didn’t have a last name. For 32 episodes, Cecil the character had the same name as his actor, so we naturally assumed his last name would be the same too. The same thing happened in episode 19B - The Sandstorm: Kevin the character shared his name with his actor, so we assumed his last name would be the same as well.
And yet, what I find the most interesting is that, despite the desire for Cecil to be his character, most fan art depictions of the character look nothing like him. It’s neat. //shot
As for Cecil reading the script word for word, I think it’s incredible how naturally he flows with it that it doesn’t sound like it’s a scripted performance. I mean, I can watch a movie and recognize that an actor had to learn his/her lines from a script, and it never quite feels natural. But I listen to WTNV and it feels so natural, so unscripted, that even when I watch a video of a live performance, I still don’t see him reading from the script. Cecil is, as Joseph put it, “an extraordinarily talented actor.”
