and a MAGNIFICENT actor

I have this new addiction and it’s called Critical Role. It’s a show on Geek and Sundry where a group of voice actors play D&D and it’s magnificent. For the past couple weeks I’ve been watching an episode a day and I can’t stop! It’s just so great!

This piece is dedicated to an obsession within an obsession: Gilmore the wizard merchant and Vax’ildan the half-elf rogue. They are… more or less canon…?

Anyway, go watch Critical Role!

Keanu Reeves talking about River Phoenix after he died: 

¨All i can say is that i have never felt a thing like that before in my life,¨ he says quietly. ¨I was very sad, and something beyond sad. I don´t know what it is, just that you sob for hours…¨

Is there camaraderie amongst you? This new generation of actors?

Keanu Reeves - No, we don’t hang out. The only one i was friends with was RIver (Phoenix)…

His untimely death plunged Hollywood into shock and placed him in the same galaxy as Marilyn Monroe, James Dean… Can stars escape tragedy?

Keanu Reeves - You have to forget their tragic death and remember that they were great actors, exceptional talents, who shone in heaven, on screen… So much beauty, so much emotion, so much sorrow… If people felt close to them, it’s because these stars were magnificent actors and their passing is all the more painful, frustrating. That’s the tragedy. But i also think, and i’d like to believe, that thanks to them, actors are born and will continue to be born…

The declaration of love by the fire is overwhelming…

Keanu Reeves - (long silence) River was an exceptional person, incredible… Where is my Juliet? Bullshit, fuck! (Another long silence) He was a really good guy.

Stuart Craig always kept in mind that his set designs should not only be wondrous or accurate, but they should also enhance and help the actors process. “looking back over what was 10 years of my life, you naturally pick out those moments of satisfaction. One in particular came when Alan Rickman said something to me after playing the scene when Snape dies. I designed the boathouse to be made of glass, so you’re very aware of the surrounding water, and you’re also aware of the school, where the great battle for Hogwarts is burning above you, the light of its fires filtering down to through the glass. So it’s very atmospheric, very romantic place to die. And Alan Rickman’s scene is magnificent. He is an extraordinary Actor. And he said to me afterwards "thank you for the set. It helped.” For Alan Rickman to say that was gratifying.“

It’s nearly been a year since Wayne passed away. It hurts my heart to think it’s been that long. I have an attachment to him. I can’t explain my love and why I feel such a deep sense of loss. My love for him is, of course, the most innocent kind of love. I feel like I lost the goofy but lovable uncle that I would see on holidays and at family get togethers. The uncle that would tell outrageous stories at the table and exaggerate the ending. The uncle that would cheer me up when I was feeling blue. Crack a joke to make me smile even when I didn’t want to. We lost a magnificent actor, Aries, father, and Trapper on December 31, 2015. And we lost a wonderful friend. I miss and love you Wayne. Always will.

At lunch with two guys I work with and we’re chatting about Captain America: The Winter Soldier and how great Sebastian Stan plays Bucky, and the one guy legit stops and asks me if I’m gonna be ok. Bro, if we’re talking about my sweet, soft plum child and the magnificent actor who plays him, the answer is always gonna be an unequivocal no, my guy.

25 DAYS OF OUTLANDER,  DAY 13 - FAVOURITE MINOR CHARACTER

The Costumes

Because each in their way is a complete character. And actually I lie, because they are not minor in any shape or form. 

I’m actually not sure at what point I decided I was going to attempt to sew all of Terry Dresbach’s amazing costumes in miniature for the DollFrasers, ( I don’t think I actually took a conscious decision, it just kind of evolved) but I know the actual process of recreating all of these costumes, and in particular, some of the  Parisian outfits,  has made me appreciate what Terry does all the more. And by that, I mean, ENORMOUSLY.

I have been absolutely floored by her attention to detail - and by the way she incorporates aspects of the character within a specific costume. Just stunning.

And these magnificent outfits are, without doubt, an enormous aid in allowing the actors a way into their roles. 

So take a bow, Terry. You deserve it.
