Hi! You are so perfect as the Black sisters and you obviously put so much effort into really getting to know each one and how best to tell their stories. I was wondering, which sister do you most enjoy playing? Or which one do you feel is most like you/you connect with most? Thanks! Xx
(( OOC: I think Bellatrix is the most fun to play, because I love working out her mannerisms and how she reacts to different things. Young Bellatrix is a particularly interesting character because she hasn’t quite abandoned all of her self-control. At this stage she is responding to situations at a higher level than just pure reactive emotion, which still makes her just as dangerous, just in a different way to the Bella we saw in the books. Also, sadistic characters are always the most fun to play ;)
I am very fond of Andromeda. Tonks is one of my most favourite characters and so I really enjoy finding things in Andromeda she would have inherited. I like the complexity of her personality - she was stubborn and rebellious and even arrogant enough to abandon her family for the sake of love. But at the end of the day she remains a Black, she still comes from old blood and great wealth and I like that dynamic within her. I think Tonks has all the strongest parts of Andromeda, yet without the arrogance. That plus Ted’s vulnerability and huge heart makes her who she is. Exploring Tonks parents and their personalities has made me appreciate her character so much more.
Narcissa is one of the most beautifully complex characters in the Harry Potter universe. She is incredibly clever and aware of her surroundings at all times, and knows exactly how to manipulate a situation to benefit her, but no one would realise she’s doing it. Whereas Bellatrix is manipulative in a violent, animalistic way, Narcissa knows how to play the puppet master and yet remain invisible. She’s demure, and beautiful, and reserved, but is absolutely always in control. She’s a damn badass. ))
