Behind the Scenes of The Waters of Mars (Part Three of Many)

Excerpts from Benjamin Cook’s interview with Lindsay Duncan in DWM 415:

How did she cope with the physical demands of playing a self-confessed action woman? “It’ll either be the first and the last, or maybe someone will think, oh, great, she can do more of those,” she reasons.  “That would be great.  But trying to keep up with David, running around sets and down corridors, was quite a challenge.”  Earlier this year, David’s Planet of the Dead co-star, Michelle Ryan, told DWM: “Running against David is impossible. He’s speedy like a panther… I should have done some more training beforehand.” Was Lindsay left trailing behind too?  “David is fast in every way,” she nods.  “You have to keep up with him in more ways than the running. He works harder and longer than any other actor. He’s so utterly professional. The man has such a sharp mind. His thinking is so quick. He can turn really quickly, within a sentence, and it makes the character compelling. It’s impressive.

“But physically, yes, it’s really, really hard.  His energy levels are so high. You think, oh God! In terms of my character, but also in terms of myself, the actor, I desperately wanted to keep up with him, but I’ve got to admit - I can’t! I can’t run as fast as him. But I gave it a good shot. I didn’t want Adelaide to drop the ball.

Oh hey, I have 555 Followers now!

Hurray for the 5-iest number of followers I’ll have either ever or for a long, long time!

So, since I ended up putting off posting about when I got 500 followers until I forgot about it, ever since then I’ve been thinking that I would ask everyone if there was anything they wanted to see more of on this blog (GPOYs, personal posts, specific subject matters, etc.?) or if there was anything that people wanted to request me to work more on (like learning something on piano and record it, or to sing something, or draw something or kind of artsy/fun/what have you kind of challenge/request) send me a message and ask me about it :)

Also if you want to, message me and get to know me better and let me get to know you better?

Anyways, I love you all, and thank you all once again for following me <3
