acting busy

10

I had no plans on ever being in the public eye or being an actor or any kind of celebrity. I was just, you know, having fun, making videos as a little kid and putting them on the internet. And one thing led to another, and I kinda just hopped into the acting business.

I think it was the best way for it to happen to me because I was filled with so much doubt as a kid. I never deemed this career truly possible in my mind, so being thrown into it really helped because it gave me a lot of confidence that this is something I am meant to do for the rest of my life.

I just happened to step into acting. And now I can’t imagine myself doing anything else.

I don't want to have children

“You say that now but wait till you have some!”

“You say that but watch you’ll end up with four!”

“What so you don’t like children?”

“Why do you hate children?”

“So you aren’t giving your parents any grandchildren?”

“Why are you so selfish?”

“Children are a blessing, how can you not see that?”

“Who will take care of you when you’re old?

"Haha, wait you aren’t kidding?”

“But you’d make such a good parent!”

Team Changes!

Well here’s a bit of seemingly good news!  There’s been a change in Rep for Louis over at CAA.  He is now being repped by Robert Mickelson.  Robert reps a LOT of singer/actors like Joe Jonas, Lennon and Maisey Stella from Nashville, Chord Overstreet from Glee, along with other musicians such as Marilyn Manson, Pete Wentz, and LunchMoney Lewis among others.  

This is actually pretty exciting I think!  The first sign of Harry venturing into the world of acting was him getting his own rep separate from the band.  Here’s to hoping good things come out of this!  Whatever happens, it heavily implies that he’s not just waiting around, not working like was implied on AGT.  He’s actively out there going for things! 

Oh yeah Donald Trump is totally an ally to the LGBT+ community. He said there’s nothing he could do about same-sex marriage because it’s already done (because everyone knows LGBT rights stop at marriage) and his opinion on it is irrelevant at this point. And one time he even held up the rainbow flag for like a minute! A true champion.

I mean I know he’s done the following:

And his own VP pick is Mike Pence, who has done the following:

And his white house team is already looking to be a delightful group of bigots but yeah I totally get how you might think Trump is “a champion for LGBT rights.” I mean he literally said those words, so it must be true?

So I was inspired by this post and I always love love LOVE behind the scenes stuff for TV series that people draw, so yeah! I had to do something with it. Take it and do what you want with it! *falls over*

(I guess this qualifies as an actor AU? This occupies a weird space so yeah. @ackerchou, I blame this all on you.)

  • Shiro and Zarkon are super good friends off-camera. They are always posting pictures on Twitter and other social media platforms in costume, commenting on how “today was a good day, got to beat up this dude” or “Black Lion Paladins have to stick together #vld2016”. Shiro is super notorious for biffing takes because he’ll start laughing and Zarkon is shameless in totally screwing up scenes by making him laugh with stupid faces. It happens a lot during the super serious moments.
    • Shiro is also known for fangirling over Zarkon, considering how long he’s been in the acting business and his famousness. Pretty much everyone fangirls over Zarkon.
  • Zarkon hates his outfit; he’s always tripping over it and has fallen over in a few scenes. He fell into Haggar once and they both went tumbling down off a green-screen set. Everyone was fine but his cape had to be modified so he could walk around in it.
  • Keith and Lance are that pair of actors who are super tight off-screen and do pretty much everything together. They post stupid Vines, crazy pictures, ALS challenges, cinnamon challenges and anything else you can think of. They love interacting with fans and are super shameless about fanning the klance flames; they’ll post pictures of them almost kissing or posing seductively with each other. Both of them snag pictures of each other when the other isn’t paying attention and will hack each other’s accounts to post stupid posts. They wander around a lot wearing Voltron merchandise.
  • Lance is heavy into improv; it’s gotten to the point where the writers just say “Insert Lance commentary here” because he will totally go off-script. Some of his best moments come from doing things off the top of his head.
  • At least every actor has done something like this with Hunk. He’s so big and strong that it’s hard not to give it a try. Even Zarkon did it (complete with the caption “I’ve got a leg up on your paladin”); that post went viral within minutes. He’s not only the heart and soul of the lionsquad but of the cast and crew as well.
  • Allura takes pictures of everything and with everyone. Her dressing room is filled to the brim with pictures of times on set that she snagged or selfies with the crew and cast. A lot of them are her kissing their cheeks or making duck faces. She also records her singing songs or dancing with the crew during down time and posts them online. Her favorite picture is with the original Allura actor from the 80’s who came to visit the set of the new TV series.
    • A memorable moment was during a take with her and Zarkon and they totally screwed it up. While the camera will still running, they decided to do whatever and confessed their love for each other and Zarkon ran off the set with Allura in his arms. They both jokingly commented later about how they really feel like their characters are having an affair with each other and that the entire plot line of the show should be changed.
  • Haggar is actually super young and pretty but she gets a ton of makeup and prosthetics to make her ugly and witch-like. Both she and Zarkon have the most prosthetics to put on and it takes a couple of hours to get them to look like the evillest duo of the universe.
  • A lot of wide shots are just miniature landscapes, like the Castle of Lions or the Garrison, and the cast will often take pictures next to them or act like Godzilla getting ready to stomp on them. All of them have pictures where they’re leaning up against the legs of the lions, which are really the only things that aren’t CGI of them.
  • Pidge is like Orlando Bloom where she’s forever making funny faces in the background during takes and no one notices it until the final edit. She gets bored easily and is the known prankster of the cast. She also squirrels food everywhere to eat between takes and forgets where she hid them sometimes. So when the prop guys come through and dismantle everything, they find fruit snacks, fruit, nuts, chips, and pretty much anything else you can think of.

hey can we talk about the bill in indiana that was just passed

it’s the religious freedom restoration act (RFRA), and as of today, march 26th, it was signed by governor mike pence. this act allows businesses to deny service to anyone strictly based on the business’ religious views

this means that any business of any kind could deny anyone service if they deemed it against the company’s/management’s/employee’s religion

this new law has the potential and very real possibility of discriminating against groups like:

  1. the lgbtqiap+ community. this has been a specific focus in the arguments against this bill, and there have even been several groups and members of the lgbt+ community outwardly protesting against this bill
  2. people of color
  3. muslim + jewish people (specifically people in these two religions that outwardly express their religion, like hijabis)
  4. pretty much anyone who is not a cis-presenting straight christian white-passing person, since this state is teetering on the edge of the bible belt

george takei has written commentary on this, and gen con (the only big convention held annually in indianapolis, and a giant profit for the state in general) is threatening to relocate. other than that, though, ive seen slim to none about this bill on the internet

please reblog this and spread the word. this could be incredibly harmful to the lgbt+ community and all other minorities in the state of indiana
