:þ Truth to tell, they only know what they're given...
I watched a little program where Roy's seiyuu mentioned...
Spoiler: (Click here to Display)
that he didn't know Hughes was dead until told by the latter's seiyuu himself. I guess the recording for Hughes was done earlier, but still it shows how little the seiyuus actually know about everything.
Aru's seiyuu herself were quite surprised at the ending of Hagaren, as stated here in the original article, where she said she knew the series was coming to an end, but she was still surprised when she read the script...

Toyoguchi Megumi (Winry Lockbell)
"Right through to the end, it didn't feel like Winry had changed much; even with Ed gone, Aru turned 10 years old, and everything else happening around... But I was glad she stayed the same; always looking after those 2~ To me, even with Ed not around, the story isn't at its end! There's still the movie, so I'm taking this as a short break."
Ookawa Toru (Roy Mustang)
"A year has passed for this deep production, and I think I've learnt some lessons from it. I'm just so happy to be part of this team, with such wonderful staff and cast members. Hagaren will keep changing as it goes on. I was quite pleased that the final episode was done in SF too. This isn't the end, and I will value the experiences that came with this production."
Neya Michiko (Riza Hawkeye)
"I'm quite thankful for the chance to play such a cool character. I was quite nervous about getting the right feel and emotion for the last part, when Riza went 'Roy', not the usual 'Taisa'. I was wondering what would happen to the 2 of them after getting that part done, but I'm glad to know they're both alive. Truth to tell, I was thinking about what the new characters that came in the last episode would do to the story, but since it ended lightly, I thought it rather good." Sycia's note: What new characters????
Tsuda Shoko (Izumi)
"This character's my baby! To have been able to come here and do this... I'm not even the main star, but I was right about to cry (nervous laugh). Since Izumi's now taken charge of Aru, she'll be training him for the next half a year (for what takes place in the movie). I'll work hard to train, sternly yet gently!" Sycia's note: At this point I'm not sure if she's talking about herself, or her character Izumi.
Thnx for the translation!

Michiko Neya is one of my favorite seiyuus. And, yes, I love how the "taisa!" eventually evolved to his name. Very touching indeed. I was saddened/touched to see her cry for him in the anime, too!
Also, if I was a seiyuu, I wouldn't want to know everything ahead of time. I'd wait for it to hit me and that way, I'd be able to put in more emotion. And besides, if you were the actual character, you wouldn't know what happens next either, therefore, it's sort of a way for the producers to make the seiyuu's stay in character, I assume.
