Bd Myriam asked Jojo Moyes:

Hi Jojo, i would like to know what inspired you to create will's character.

Jojo Moyes Well, the book itself was inspired by a news story I heard about a young man who persuaded his parents to take him to Dignitas. But the character of Will, unusually, came to me fully formed.
I saw this scene where he and Lou were dancing at a wedding (I say dancing, he was in a wheelchair) and having a conversation, and from that I knew exactly who he was. I had to work a bit harder with his appearance, but he was actually one of the most enjoyable characters I've ever written.
