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 nowI can’t imagine myself doing anything else.

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!
As part of a charity stunt to protest Black Friday, Cards Against Humanity got 30,000 people to buy actual bullshit in a box. They made it clear that they were selling “literal feces, from a literal bull,” but still sold out. Their cow poop profits were donated to help end hunger and poverty. Source
When George Lucas sold his company to Disney, he vowed to donate most of his $4 billion Star Wars wealth to education. He launched his own foundation to improve grades k-12, because he believes education is the key to the survival of the human race. Source
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.
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?
George F. Johnson was an entrepreneur who pioneered 40 hour workweeks. He paid industry-leading wages, built low-cost parks, pools, and medical facilities for his 10,000 employees, sold homes to workers at a loss, and his company was consistently profitable. Source
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.
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
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
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
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:
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 outwardlyprotesting against this bill
people of color
muslim + jewish people (specifically people in these two religions that outwardly express their religion, like hijabis)
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
