It makes me smile, not that I didn’t smile before. But it makes me giggle a bit, like an idiot … It’s a weird thing, isn’t it? Because people know me better than I know them now. That has changed things. That makes for a very strange first encounter sort of dynamic, if you know what I mean. I can’t be churlish about it. It’s incredibly flattering. I want to do something useful with it, rather than just sort of feel smug about it. It’s a lovely position to be in, and it’s off the back of work that’s been really, really celebrated. -Benedict Cumberbatch
“When you’re in your thirties, the parts get good for men. You get really interesting characters. That’s what I’ve noticed. Complicated men dealing with complicated things. Seeing that there’s so much [more] to investigate about the way people are, and communicat[ing] those things to an audience, that’s the challenge. You want [the] stories to be good and you want them to be truthful and that’s a challenge.” — Lee Pace [x]
Happy 36th Birthday, Lee!
May the stories be good and may the parts get better and better! I look forward to all your new (ad)ventures and challenges. <3
