“He says there are different kinds of love: There’s physical attraction, mental attraction, and emotional attraction; there’s also comfort and obsession. You need to have all of those things in one person. You have to mentally respect them, be physically attracted, and have a comfort level. You’re obsessed with them, yet you also know they’re going to stay.”
“I love kissing. If I could kiss all day, I would. I can’t stop thinking about kissing. I like kissing more than sex because there’s no end to it. You can kiss forever. You can kiss yourself into oblivion. You can kiss all over the body. You can kiss yourself to sleep. And when you wake up, you can’t stop thinking about kissing. Dammit, I can’t get anything done because I’m so busy thinking about kissing. Kissing is madness! But it’s absolute paradise, if you can find a good kisser.”
“Benedict and I do have this chemistry on-set, you know, that doesn’t even particularly have anything to do with good acting - even though, obviously, he’s a brilliant actor - but there’s something more personal about it, you know, it’s like love… Oh God, why did I phrase it that way?”
‘I’d love to be in a period drama – that’s my obsession. But being a mixed-race actress, there aren’t so many roles you’re right for. There are lots of period stories to be told with ethnic people in them, but the stories that are being told are not those ones. And that’s frustrating. No, it’s not an easy industry, but so far I have been lucky, so I will keep going.’ - Antonia Thomas
“Another favourite of mine was Lee Pace, who plays Thranduil. Lee is a very affable, gentle man and he’s great to work with. We turned him into this elf king, with this silver blonde hair and amazing eyebrows.
When he looks at you he becomes this cool, cold, calculating character. He has such presence on stage that he’s quite intimidating.
When he comes on set, people just clear out the way.”
-Peter King, Hair and Make Up designer, The Hobbit
“It’s so easy to compare yourself to people who have been working at something for years and years and be like “I’ll never get there!” But you just start doing it an you get there because, fuck it man. The years are gonna go by either way, so you might as well just do what you wanna do.”
