“I think to be gay in Edwardian times when not only was it against God but it was illegal and you would get locked up and it would be the end of your career so you'd essentially starve. He has this weight on his shoulders. He's not ashamed of who he is yet he can't tell anyone. He has this tremendous burden on his shoulders, so if he's sort of bitter and paranoid and twisted it's because of this huge cross that he's got to bear.

“With the war stuff where he deliberately got his hand shot, my first reaction when I read that was that it was the act of a coward but our historical advisor Alistair Bruce was a Falklands veteran and he very kindly took me, Dan [Stevens] and Thomas [Howes] who were all in the trenches and he gave us the benefit of his experience. We're talking hand to hand combat and it was an amazing conversation I will never forget and he said it isn't the act of a coward. To knowingly put your hand up with the knowledge it will get blown to smithereens is one of the bravest things you could do and is a marker down for the horrors that they experienced at the Somme. Let's not forget that Thomas had been there for two years already and I wouldn't blame anyone for putting their hand up and getting out of that. ”—Rob - Q&A

Perfect segway into nabbing Beyonce tickets for her Boston show. Shout out to J who answered my frantic texts about getting the mastercard code.

I might be on the Today Show next Friday for a segment they did on Boston, while drinking a Guinness, or walking up and down stairs of a tour bus, or freezing my tuckus off at various filming locations for Boston movies.
My brother is home.
