"I don’t know whether it’s still in the film or not, but in the script that we had, Paul said to him, ‘It was also what you taught me that made me triumphant over that hunter-seeker,'” Henderson says. “So that’s the only thing that helped [Thufir] get off the hook, but [his] resignation was a sincere desire to say, ‘Get someone else because I care that much.'"
