Difference Between Character vs Actor

After seeing many posts/videos dissing actors I figured it was time to re-make this post.

I’ve seen people hate a character for an actors physical traits such as hate towards Rose Tyler and Kylo Ren. People judge the ‘character’ saying “Omg she has horse teeth” “Eww he’s ugly he look gross!” and say they hate that character for something an actor CANNOT change

This type of hate doesn’t only include Adam and Billie but also Rami Malek, Misha Collins and multiple others.

What bothers me the absolute most is that its A LOT of people doing this, and it often goes UN-noticed. Bullying is Bullying and nothing will change that. Even if its someone older than you, that doesn’t give you the right to bully someone and hate someone just for looks.They are human just as much as we are and feel the same things we do. 

Hey ya’ll. I’m auditioning voice actors for my third year film! If any of you are LA-based / live near CalArts, you’re welcome to audition for any of the roles. At some point, the chosen ones will need to meet up with me in person so we can hit the recording studio > u o)b 

(Note: This is a free opportunity / unpaid)

Please contact me at if you are interested. Thank you!! 


That moment when you find this video and realize that four of the male voice actors in here voice a Cheritz character o.o 

Furthest Left: V’s VA

Second to Furthest Left: Zion’s VA

Middle: Lance’s VA

Second to Furthest Right: Jiyeon’s VA  

And then in this video:

Left: Tei’s VA

Right: Jumin’s VA

…my gosh, because [SPOILERS FOR THESE TWO CHARACTERS], here we have two yanderes from different Cheritz games just chilling and eating food and discussing, oh, I don’t know, ways on how to keep the heroines “safe”? (such as drugging their drinks and using a GPS microchip?) (Lol, I’m not hating on the characters and their voice actors. They’re amazing, especially the VAs xD But Jumin and Tei need to freaking calm down and shit)  

It just amuses me to no end when people’s blogs or twitter accounts consist to 80% of hate posts about ships, characters and actors they dont like….

Like why spent so much time on things you cant stand instead talking about things you love….thats beyond me

On the other hand though, there is an issue shown in those interviews that drives me nuts.

Disclaimer that this is not any insult to Colin, it’s a headscratch directed to the writers. From this interview:

I don’t even know what kind of a relationship he and The Evil Queen had back then!

I don’t know if he’s on the Jolly Roger, or if he’s at Granny’s, or where he is.

Listen guys, that simply doesn’t work. You can’t have an actor not know things about their character. Part of an actor’s job is to be able to map their character and know everything about them because they are the ones that make them (corpo)real. This isn’t the first time this has happened with Colin. The guy wasn’t even fully informed on Killian’s childhood until Season 5, and that’s simply unacceptable for a writer to do. Leaving an actor in the dark concerning their character’s past cannot be. They have to know

Colin is playing Killian in the first episodes of season 6 and the writers haven’t even bothered to think of where the guy is living? Because yes, it’s minor but it has a role, where he lives can influence his behaviour a bit. If he lives in the Jolly Roger, he’ll probably be feeling a little lonely, or his previous crew could come by and they could catch up. If he’s staying in Granny’s, he’ll be closer to everyone else but he’ll also be slightly irritated by the whole “having a landlady with supernatural hearing” thing. If he’s sleeping in benches, well that’s pretty sad. If he’s staying with the Charmings, he’ll be tired because of the baby crying in the night and waking him up.

Those are subtle but important; the actor has to know everything that’s going on in their character’s life in order to show those subtle things that make these characters feel real. And it’s the writers’ job to actually know all these pretty but important details before they give an actor a role.

That quote I just rebloged from William Shatner about Leonard Nimoy reminded me of this amazing fic:

Of Human Bondage by obstinatrix

Pairing: William Shatner & Leonard Nimoy (note the ‘&’ - this is a friendship fic)
Length: ~3000 

“We are their keepers.” 

This is an exploration of that space between character and actor and it is amazing. Set during the making of The Motion Picture, it’s about Bill and Len finally being friends, even as the Kirk and the Spock inside them are trying to find their way back to each other. It’s heartbreaking and hopeful and sweet and just a tad pathetic. Just read. 


In light of the recent horrifying Cap twist, I have seen far too many “stop saying they made him a nazi, HYDRA aren’t nazis!!!11!1″ so I thought I would bring back this scene to remind everyone that yes they are

Arishok: Do you want to know how I actually hurt my wrists?
Hawke: Yes.
Arishok: I was hula-hooping. I attend a class for both fitness and for fun.
Hawke: Oh my god.
Arishok: I mastered all the moves. The pizza toss, the tornado, the scorpion, the oopsie doodle.
Hawke: Why are you telling me this?
Arishok: Because no one will ever believe you.
Hawke: You sick son of a bitch.


On his final day of shooting, Paul couldn’t keep his emotions in check. “They said wrap, and I knew I’d never play Jesse again,” he says.

“I tried to give speeches, but when I turned and looked at Bryan, I lost it,” he says. “I would be nowhere without him. That man will never know how much he did for me.”
