actors as characters in things

anonymous asked:

why is everyone in this ugly ass fandom always holding you accountable for the problematic things the actors or even the characters do, like.. coming in to your ask box acting all innocent saying ''omg faiza can you believe she did that?? he did that??'' and then they go off as soon as you express your opinion on it. leave her alone man she is not responsible for anything.

idek mate lmao they just need a place to vent without exposing who they are so they come on anon and come to me and i post their ask with a reply and then what dya know? i get bombarded.

anonymous asked:

what's your opinion on the floriana discourse?

ok first and foremost, before i answer you pls keep in mind that my opinion literally does not matter i am white and i dont wanna ever speak over anybody else and also if u have any problems w what i say please please let me know i wanna know how to not be shitty if i’m shitty

i think it’s horrible that the role of a latina is being played by a white woman, no matter how ethnically ambiguous she may look. it’s shitty and the whole industry needs to fucking stop white washing characters.

i do think, though, that the casting call wasn’t restricted to any ethnicity or race. it was open, and i think this bc dichen lachman also auditioned for the role. i think that some producer probably saw floriana and was like ‘she’s latina’ bc that’s how it was first announced, no? by some producer being like ‘maggie is latina’

i also think that separating a character from its actor is an important thing to do. it fucking sucks that maggie isn’t played by a latina actress but that doesn’t diminish how important a character maggie is and continues to be, the more complex she gets.

casey affleck can fucking choke though. she needs to sort out her fuckin priorities dating that man.

It’s interesting because we make decisions and choices, even spur of the moment things happen within a scene or an episode that they then continue to write for. That’s part of the process for a character within a television series. 

The actor does things and the writers watch this and then they start writing towards what the actor’s doing and they start into a collaboration as the character develops

So, what you’re saying, outloud, to a room full of fans here Jensen, is that you and Misha did some things at the beginning of the series that the writers have picked up on and started writing into the show?

Thank you for this beautiful clarification.

Were Mila and Danny a thing??? I mean I had ~a feeling~ that they may have been at some point but...what's the tea 👀

They weren’t, as said by them plenty of times and the facts one can add.

I’m not much of a RPF fan, so I’m going to try and make this response as clear and informative as I can. But,

  • She was underage for most part of the show. He being 7 years older than her would had been a little bit crazy and honest to god disgusting if they were a thing. Which I don’t believe they were because
  • Both were on relationships by the time the rumor of them being a thing was spread. He has always present as a very monogamous man, liking and having serious and long-term relationships, which he had during the show and after, before marrying Bijou Philips. While Mila was also in a long-term serious relationship with actor Macaulay Culkin.
  • Another thing to add is the fact that both had refer to the other as their brother/sister, which makes sense since he seemed to have bonded with her pretty early during filming.
  • After the show ended, and their relationships too, they didn’t had a reason to hide if they had been together, but to this day they keep saying the same: they never dated, they see each other as brother/sister, it was only a rumor.

Rumors started because a tabloid published they were together after Mila went with Danny to the premiere of one of Ashton’s movies, ‘Just Married’. They were holding hands on some of the press pictures:

And while I understand some people take this as OH THEY ARE DATING, well– No. We sexualize every human touch so much we take some people holding hands as being intimate in a romantic way. But Danny was dating someone and so was she, and even with all his crap, he has always show certain respect for his couple. So I don’t believe this means anything.

I understand some people don’t hold their loved ones’ hands if they aren’t sexually together, but not everyone is like that. I do hold hands with my friends, male and female, and my brother, and my mom, and my nices and nephews. So honestly? Some respect to the actors that gave us such an amazing fictional couple to care about, would be great

Not just that, but Danny Masterson is a very touchy and handsy man. So really, don’t take it so serious.

Now, another thing I understand is that people may think something happened. But as long as they say no, I believe them and I respect them enough to not gossip about it, especially so many years after these things happened and she’s married to one of Danny’s best friends if not his best friend.

To finish, some cute facts about their friendship because they are adorable:

  • It is said he took her to her prom, (EDIT 11/03/2017: IT’S REAL! Mila said it herself: “He was my prom date too.”, source)
  • But other people say this information its flase, that in fact because of filming, she couldn’t make it to her prom, so the cast took her to a club instead and he was her ‘date’.
  • EDIT 11/03/2017: on Mila Kunis’ words, about going to clubs with Dan as her date:  “[…] And Danny [Masterson] took me to my first club and bought me my first drink,” Kunis recalls. “He was my prom date too.” (source).
  • He was the one who told Ashton to kiss Mila, who had never kissed anyone at that point. Danny told him he would pay him 20 bucks if he did it. He did. EDIT: I’ve been told Danny told him to give her tongue in one of their early kisses in the show, and he would pay him. But Ashton didn’t do it.
  • That one time they appeared in MadTV in the CHiPS sketch with Wilmer Valderrama. His character spends half the episode flirting and touching Mila’s character. He grabs her boobs and her ass, and they just kind of roll with that (and she laughs about it, so). (source)
  • She participated in plenty of his Scientology acting events, there’s plenty of pictures of that, that are honest to god kind of cute.
  • During season 8 filming, she would still sit on his lap between takes and be with him most times. This was informed by peopel who went to the tapping of the episodes and suffered the season in live and direct.
  • They were very comfortable around the other, which make their on-screen relationship incredible. Their chemistry is something I feel added a lot to Jackie and Hyde’s relationship.
  • She said she felt Jackie became less shallow because of Steven.
  • He called her a ‘small russian fairy’ because she pretty as hell and well, she’s ukranian. The quote: “Mila is this awesome, really smart little Russian fairy.” (I haven’t found a source for it).
  • There’s lots of interviews with Danny happily saying Hyde became better around Jackie, because he is like the captain of the ship.
  • Added on 11/04/2017: I found that, while filming season 7, there was a special for the show that aired only in Canada. In it, Mila and Danny give their interviews together and spend most their time joking between them and saying things like, “I was like, look at all these cute guys!” “Me being the cutest” “Of course, Danny”. (source)
  • Added on 11/04/2017: From this same special, fans say Danny and Mila were smiling and talking to the other while in the background of a scene, and even after the director called ‘cut’, they kept like flirting between them and kissed a few times. This I don’t know how to take it, but… yeah. (source)
  • Danny answers lots of stuff on twitter. When asked how it was to kiss Mila he answered, “my work doesn’t suck” (source). He also bashes both, Kelso/Jackie and Fez/Jackie, and hate son season 8 every chance he gets because he bitter af like all of us. (source).
  • Added on 11/04/2017: He said Mila would totally guest star in The Ranch if he asked her nicely. (source). Which means they are still good friends. Makes sense since, like I said, Ashton is one of Danny’s best friend, if not his best friend.
  • This picture:

If there was ever something more than friendship between them, which I don’t believe, they have decided to mantain it with themselves and we, as fans, must respect that and their personal lives. So, better not gossip about it.

Thank you for your question! :)

EXCLUSIVE: The 7 Biggest Secrets From Hook & Emma's 'Once Upon a Time' Wedding: Vows, Honeymoon & Much More!

Source

Wedding bells are officially ringing in Storybrooke!

Once Upon a Time’s highly anticipated musical episode is almost here, which means that we’re just a few days away from witnessing Emma Swan and Killian Jones say “I do” in a breathtaking wedding ceremony. (Trust us. It’s perfect.)

ET had the pleasure of visiting Once Upon a Time’s set in Vancouver, Canada, last month during filming of the musical matrimony, and we sat down with stars Jennifer Morrison and Colin O'Donoghue for an intimate and in-depth interview that focused on each and every aspect of their on-screen wedding.

From their “honest” vows, to Emma’s “timeless” wedding gown, and their dream honeymoon – only ET has all the inside scoop straight from the stars of the series! Plus, we’ve got additional details from executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis, as well as Once Upon a Time’s head costume designer Eduardo Castro.

So, shall we get started? Or, as O'Donoghue cleverly put it: who’s ready for some “music and dance and some mighty fine romance” at Captain Swan’s wedding?

Just a warning that this is the biggest Once Upon a Time article we’ve ever written, so grab a comfy seat, put your cellphone on silent and get ready to go on an emotional roller coaster of feels. And, as always, please remember to breathe!

1. The Venue: The Once showrunners confessed that they had considered a number of “other places” for Emma and Killian to tie the knot – yes, even Granny’s! – but in the end, they settled on a brand new Storybrooke location for the ceremony. “Without wanting to spoil the episode, there’s a story reason for why it’s on the roof,” Horowitz revealed. “But there’s also something to us that was super romantic about having Storybrooke as the backdrop.”

Emma and Killian will tie the knot in front of a dream-worthy sunset and surrounded by their closest friends and family. “It’s the place where they’ve kind of come together,” Horowitz continued. “Where their love has grown and where both of them as characters have grown, so seeing the whole town kind of beneath and surrounding them felt like a really cool way to do it.”

“I thought it was perfect,” Morrison dished. “We just felt, like, what better way to make it feel extra special than to have [the wedding] also be the musical episode?”

Keep reading

“Mmmhmm,” O'Donoghue confirmed. “I picked the engagement ring and then they showed me this [wedding band] and I was like, ‘Yeah, that’ll do.’” To which Morrison added, “They’re very inclusive with us around here. It’s really nice.”

Kitsis and Horowitz explained that they have always encouraged the actors to “take ownership of their characters,” and allowing them to select things like the right gowns or props is a natural extension of that. “I think our props department is awesome and I’m sure that they had some great rings,” Horowitz said. “Nobody knows the character of Hook better than Colin, so of course he’d be the one to figure out what it should be.”

—  Colin picked out Captain Swan’s rings?!!! Major swooning over here!
Important Discussion - Writers Have Lives Too, They Aren’t Your Machines and Never Will Be.

I’ve seen this issue across Tumblr in various fandoms to various writers: People treating writers like machines and taking their writing for granted.

Newsflash: Writing takes time, writing takes thought, writing is free, and writing IS HARD.

People don’t have to share their writing, but they do, and they do it for you, the reader for your enjoyment. There aren’t many things that writers want, and it’s not that hard to give:

-Feedback (ie, compliments, reactions, anything positive)

-Likes/Kudos

-Random asks just to drop by like ‘how your day?‘ or ‘I loved this fic!’

Instead I see things like ‘Where’s your masterlist?’, ‘Your masterlist isn’t woroking’, ‘Make a part 2 to this’

It doesn’t hurt to say please once in awhile, and it sure as hell doesn’t hurt ot look for yourself. I’ve seen people asking writers where their masterlist and if they can have a link even though the link is in their bio or clearly on their home page. Honestly, if you tell somebody their links aren’t working, that doesn’t help, it causes more work for the writer. You tell them ‘ the link to part _ of ___ doesn’t works’. If the writer has linked the previous parts on the post, you don’t ask for part 1, you click it yourself.  If they have ask guidelines, read it, don’t ignnore it!

[Refer HERE to Request Do’s and Don’t’s]

I’m going to use my dear friend @bonniebird as and example. Her blog is VERY EASY to navigate through!

If a writer has closed requests, save them the work and DON’T SEND REQUESTS!!

Also using bae @amylillian22.

ACTORS AND CHARACTERS ARE STILL PEOPLE, RESPECT THEIR FEELINGS

Now, let’s talk important things, don’t send hate. Literally don’t, it only de-motivates a writer which is NOT what you want to happen. I don’t care if they aren’t releasing the fic you requested or the next part of your favorite series, they’re still people and they have lives. The same goes for their own opinions, if you don’t like don’t follow. Send anon love, support your writers and show them that. It doesn’t hurt to spread love.

[Please refer to @deansdirtylittlesecretsblog #StopTheHate post HERE]

I’m gonna use @winchesters-favorite-girl as an example for this one.

Writing is hard. Fics are a blessing, don’t abuse it.

So please, spread anon love, respect your writers, don’t spread hate. Hate isn’t a nice thing to recieve and I’m sure you wouldn’t want to say it to them in person. I know this sounds like I’m an old person talking to a 6-year old, but this was something were taught since then. Don’t be immature, be the bigger person.

Respect others, be patient, and don’t be rude.

MOAR DR BLOOPERS!!

KK so I know everyone likes these, so let’s get it poppin’ and pump out some more!

-Kirigiri’s ‘death’ scene took forever because Kirigiri kept moving in some way or another (I.E. her keg shaking, her mouth opening and closing, her chest rising/falling, etc.).

-Iruma and Kiibo’s 'sex scene’ also took forever to film because Iruma kept laughing and crying that this was too dirty and Kiibo kept crying bc he was being 'Deflowered’.

-Souda finally telling off Sonia for ignoring him 24/7 and then crying and apologizing with the others in the show laughing.

-Oogami’s 'ASAHINA’ yell takes popping up every 5 minutes of the blooper reel with everyone laughing and giving their input.

-In Akamatsu’s 'execution’ scene, you can hear Saihara screaming 'MY WAIFU, NO!’

-This vine on Sayaka/Kyouko’s vine channel:
Hinata: Is that a hamster in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?
Komaeda: *Takes out knife*
Hinata: Oh, shit, nope! Its a knife! *Runs away*

-Or this one:
Mikan: *Strides up to Junko with a flirty smile* How old are you?
Junko: *Looks up from her phone* 15.
Togami/Syo/Hinata/Komaeda: *Screams no and drags her away*

-Souda, Fuyuhiko, and Akane chanting 'One of Us’ when one of the other actors are running late.

-In the scene where Fuyuhiko’s holding Peko while she’s beat up, they kiss on camera and everyone screams in joy.

-Bonus: Syo yells that now she’s definitely Deadpool bc Spideypool’s fucking canon.

-In Celes’s execution, one of the pop-up flames fall and hit one of the costumed Monokumas in the audience. She unties herself and helps them with Togami (The camera man) laughing loudly.

-Bonus: Komaeda being on Hinata’s side and Gundham on Souda’s side

-Fujisaki filming Fukawa and being like 'Look at this cute thing, she is the most beautiful thing on this planet omg’.
-Bonus: Fukawa doing the same thing when Fujisaki’s in the screen.

-Naegi calling Togami 'Dollface’ and Togami calling Naegi 'Tough Guy’ behind the scenes.

-Sayaka filming the actors and saying things like 'My brother’, 'My sister’, or, for Kyouko, 'My sweet girlfriend’.

-Togami filming the episode on his TV, thn switching to himself scowling in an exaggerated scowl when a Naegiri scene pops up.

-Every actor- even the stoic characters- doing the 'Eh eh eh’ thing where they wiggle around every time their face pops up on the TV.

-Natsumi and Sato glaring at each other, but once the director calls cut, there’s a lot of cute pictures Sayaka and Chiaki took of them eating ice cream together and watching the scenes laughing together.

-Komaeda running away with Hinata’s shirt screaming 'Sugar Honey Iced Tea!’ as Hinata screams in an exaggerated way after running after him.

-Souda filming Gundham on break and narrating his actions like the crocodile hunter.

-There’s a lost video of the DR1 cast and DR2 cast doing a music video for 'I don’t dance’ from HSM2.

-Asahina filming Celestia sitting in Yamada’s lap and doing his bloody makeup for Naegi’s hallucination with them laughing and Yamada booping Celes’s little nose.
-Bonus: Yamada curling Celes’s drills for her while she irons his jacket. Asahina films all of this in full detail.

-Hinata and Komaeda swapping clothes for an episode and all of the fans noticing so the directors had to reshoot the whole episode with the correct outfits.

And that’s pretty much all I can think of rn! I hope its good!

2. The Suit: In case you missed it, we already dished a little on Killian’s dashing (and “really soft!”) suit, but did you know that black velvet wasn’t always the original plan? Once’s head costume designer, Eduardo Castro, spilled an “interesting note” about Hook’s suit to ET during an email interview.

“Originally we had an ivory gabardine suit made and, somehow, it did not hit the mark,” Castro wrote. “At the very last moment, we threw out the ivory and went for a black velvet Burberry jacket that was far more in keeping with Hook’s demeanor.”

Kitsis furthered that he and Horowitz had a very specific vision in mind when it came to Hook’s look. “Adam and I both thought that Hook needed to have a tux that reflects his personality, so you can’t go from leather to just a basic tux,” he said. “We felt like he had to have a little edge to it, so the velvet felt like the Hook version of fancy.”

When asked if he feels “suave” in his wedding attire, O'Donoghue was bashful with his response. “I guess so,” he chuckled. “I hope it looks OK.”

“You look amazing!” Morrison chimed in while brushing a piece of lint off of O'Donoghue’s sleeve. “He’s been getting a little jealous about all of the attention the dress has been getting, so I’m trying to butter him up a little bit about his velvet jacket.”

I watched the Mummy, and Holy Mother of All that’s Good and Pure!!!

Look, I’ve made it no secret that Killian Jones is my favorite character of all time. I’ve devoted a lot of time and energy and words to him. I absolutely want to watch Colin be brilliant and maybe get some focus. This is incredibly, incredibly hard for me. Part of me feels like I can’t let Killian Jones be on my screen and not watch every second I have with him.

I also want to support Colin. The network wanted him to stick around for a reason, I want them to know he’s worth it, but I also don’t know if I can handle what *I* think is coming if they aren’t doing a American Horror Story thing where the actors play completely new characters. In which case that’s not Killian Jones and THAT will be hard to watch knowing I won’t see anymore of his story even though Colin is still on my screen.

I still feel that a full and true reboot is literally the only way I see this coming out okay if Jen’s only contractual obligation is the premiere. People have made very convincing arguments about syndication value and public perception but also, that didn’t stop them before, that didn’t stop them with Lost. They don’t seem to care that it’s a fairytale show, that should end happily. They don’t care about destroying characters or love stories.

So I’ll see what they “setup” in the finale before I decide I’m absolutely no way gonna watch it, but if it’s not indicated that it’s a true reboot or we are in no way reassured that CS isn’t being destroyed at the expense of Emma Swan, I don’t think I can watch them obliterate what I put so much into and I believe with my entire being that they *would* absolutely destroy it because that is who they are, that is what they do. They would absolutely fridge a female character for male angst. No doubt in my mind.

I don’t know. I’m just upset and I need to vent a bit because this absolutely sucks. This is a shitty position to be in as a shipper who also loves the characters she ships more than any characters ever.

I’m not mad at Jen for leaving of course but I’m furious ABC didn’t offer her enough to stay, that she wasn’t valuable enough to them. I’m furious that this show would even think of continuing without her, the main character and the soul of it.

I’m mad that A&E don’t see the value of offering their fans some reassurances and think that doing so would in some way compromise the story.

I read romance novels almost exclusively, I do so BECAUSE I know they will end happily. That’s important to me in a world as fucked up as this one and it’s annoying that they don’t realize that and value plot twists and drama over what modern fairytales are supposed to actually be about.

sootonthecarpet replied to your post “Do you ever think about how much René Auberjonois hated Kira/Odo”

:DDDDD i didnt know this

YEAH there’s an interview where he’s asked about Odo’s relationships w/ Quark and Kira and he goes on a big tangent about how great the Quark-Odo relationship was and then has to be prompted again to talk about Kira/Odo, and he… doesn’t have anything good to say and is just like “well it’s not me and Nana’s jobs to question the writers’ decisions. I love working w/ Nana though”

Armin Shimerman has also said that he and René were p put off that Quark and Odo’s relationship never really got to develop and just stayed the same for the whole show

I just want to say one thing about the whole “the actor know their character better than everyone so they should be the one to pick out their props and clothes” thing.

Just because an actor knows their character really well does not mean that they know how to express that via clothing or props or dialogue or anything else. Like, why do shows and movies have writers, and costume designers, and prop departments? Because all of those people have specific jobs, with specific skill sets, and no, just because an actor understands their character doesn’t mean they have any of those other skill sets. Which is why all of these productions hire all of those other people to do all of those things.

And to me it’s a little insulting to say that the actors know best, in these cases, because you’re basically saying that an amateur knows better than a professional who’s been doing this job for decades. It’s also not really fair to ask an actor do to this stuff, and do it as well as or better than the pros, because it’s really not part of their job description.

Acting choices? Expressions? Voice pitches? That’s the actor’s job. Props and costumes are not. Knowing the character makes the actor a great consultant for the people whose job it is to express that via clothes and props and so on. It does not make them a great costume designer or prop maker.

Again, it’s not about understanding the character, it’s about expressing it, and that takes specific skills that people spend decades learning and perfecting. And I don’t think it’s very fair to just discount that. The OUAT costume and props departments have done an amazing job over the past 6 years, they know what they’re doing, they are very good at their jobs, and their work is important and has contributed a LOT to this show.
