According to IndieWire, HBO addressed her concerns with the following statement: “While this is the first time we have heard Alice Wetterlund comment on her experiences on ‘Silicon Valley,’ we are disappointed to learn of her concerns. HBO and the producers have always taken very seriously our responsibility to create a welcoming and congenial environment for everyone who works on the show.”
About a month later, Miller responded to Wetterlund’s comments on SiriusXM’s Jim Norton & Sam Roberts show, per Variety.
“She may have had that experience, but it’s people trying to enter the headlines and get into the media cycle,” he said. “It was not my experience that anyone was bullying her or being mean to her.”
Miller said, “Truthfully, I felt like it was difficult to work with her because she kept interrupting Zach Woods… during takes and even when she was off camera… Obviously, there was some sort of disconnect because she’s saying these negative things about me and then attacking the mostly all-male cast of Silicon Valley.”
E! News has reached out to Wetterlund, Patterson, Bravin and Harding for comment.
