It was important for Tell Me Lies showrunner Meaghan Oppenheimer to make Stephen, played by Jackson White, somewhat likeable. “Although he lies and manipulates, I was hoping that audiences — those who haven’t read the book — would be surprised,” Oppenheimer told Decider. “Because that’s the whole point of this type of relationship. You say, “Is he a villain? No, he made me feel good. I feel sorry for him about this.”

Oppenheimer makes it clear that the viewer’s own story and personal experiences will also influence how they view Stephen and that the series has a degree of freedom in its storytelling. “Not that you don’t understand him [Stephen] in the book,” she told Hollywood Life. “But we’re delving a bit more into his personal life, his backstory and his family, and we’ve been trying to figure out why he is the way he is.”

It’s understandable that Tell Me Lies needed to humanize Stephen a little, considering it’s a series, and obviously Oppenheimer is hoping for a Season 2 and beyond. Whether audiences will think Stephen has any redeeming qualities after the Tell Me Lies finale remains to be seen.
