and some actors i don't know

what i wanna know is why all the actors in skam look like they haven’t aged much through the seasons (because it’s only been about a year) 

but then Tarjei

just ages about 5 years

Thought of the day (while reading a “gender marketing” translation with painfully outdated views): I am really, really sick of us only talking about “gender” when women are involved.

A surprising number of important realizations could be made if we develop the habit of talking about gender dynamics even – perhaps especially – in the context of all-male or mostly-male groups.

How does it affect productivity, public image, collaboration, negotiating, client acquisition, etc. to have any group of people involved be entirely men? What effects does this drastic gender imbalance cause in its environment?

LET’S TALK ABOUT GENDER AND MEN, PEOPLE. Gender is not an exclusively female domain.


Me, interviewing the director of basically any film ever: “So let’s talk about the extreme gender imbalance in the casting of this film. What was the thinking behind that? Was there a particular statement you were trying to make, a satirical observation on the politics of society, perhaps? That kind of came out of left field, when we watched the film and all the parts but one were men. Can you tell us a little about the background of that?”


Director: “Um… I didn’t actually consciously think that much abou–”

Me, interrupting: “Come now, don’t be modest! That was a fascinating artistic decision! The drastic disparity between the number of men and the number of women in the film makes it clear to even the most casual viewer that gender is a central theme in this story. Can we delve into that a little bit further?”

Director: “…”


This would be a fun tack to take in regard to race, too.

“I noticed something very interesting about your film, which is that every single one of the leading roles is played by a white actor. Clearly there’s some conceptual message you want to communicate with this creative choice. Could you talk about that?”

Director: *sweats nervously*

OMG .. the nerve that some fans have is ridiculous .. I get being angry that it was renewed .. I don't know how I feel yet .. but CSers (mostly JMo stans) taking out all their anger on Colin just coz he decided to stay & is happy that he still has a job & a chance to play a character he still loves! Seriously just stop .. now he is no longer a good actor that also played a part in creating one of the best tv couples ever, he has been reduced to just being a pretty face.

Yeah I saw the “pretty face” comments and it made my blood boil. This whole time these people stood up for Colin against the BA’s of another ship who called him “just a pretty face” and now I am witnessing fans in my own freaking ship saying the same damn bull shit.

It’s truly unacceptable.

Colin is an amazing actor, I have watched every thing he’s ever acted in, I admire him as a person as well as an actor. I know how much he LOVES playing Hook. He truly has the best time. And I KNOW he is just as sad, if not more sad as we are about Jen and even GOSH leaving the show. But he loves his job, and he has a family to support. Not to mention the fact he may very very well still be in a binding contract to ONCE and have no way to leave anyway.

To stoop SO low as to say all Colin is now is a “pretty face” and thats not enough to make you stay? Listen to what you’re saying. I get you’re hurt, SO AM I! I am distraught and I have been since Monday. MY BLOG IS CAPTAIN SWAN SOURCE. It’s about the ship! Not just Emma! Not just Hook! THE COUPLE! 

But I STARTED this show in Season One. Because I am a Disney nerd. That’s my backbone. And then Colin came along and Jen and him created this amazing chemistry that was Captain Swan. And I could never look back.

I don’t believe they are going to destroy Captain Swan. I really don’t. They put so much time into building them up. They can clearly see by ALL their social media posts that Captain Swan IS the show! But Jen left. ABC couldn’t offer enough for it to make it worth it for her to stay. I always kinda knew Jen would be the first to consider leaving out of her and Colin. She’s so driven and you can tell she gets bored easy. She likes to challenge herself and she’s a natural go getter. I don’t blame her for leaving. But I am still heart broken.

But I am blown away, totally blown away by the things I am seeing my own fellow shipmates say directly to Colin. It’s so distasteful. And I am ashamed.

Do I wanna watch a s7 without Captain Swan? No. I don’t. But will I because I myself am choosing to support Colin? Yes. I will. Does that mean I think EVERYONE should do the same as me!? Hell no, you do you boo.

But do. fucking. not. diminish Colin O’Donoghue to just a “pretty face”. Get out.

May i know why chihoko became famous lately? I literally don't understand... T_T

Yess! Well on Saturday 29 april in Japan there was an event named “Yuri On Stage”!  ( ´ ♡ ` )

 During this event some actors played a nice and funny performance (totally Canon!!! (•⊙ω⊙•) ) in which the main theme was Viktor’s jealousy of a Yuuri’s ex, Chihoko. In the end we knew that Chihoko was not a real person but only an animal in Japanese folklore <Sachihoko> 

(so it was everything only a language misunderstanding (≧ω≦) ). 

Here the summary of the performance! 

From that moment there were a lot of majestic featuring art, fanfictions, memes of the event, that joke about Viktor Extra Nikiforov and his (statuary) enemy Chihoko!

I really don't get people are hating on Katie. Lena is an amazing character and Katie deserves this!

It is rather unfortunate that people feel the need to do that. Thank goodness she doesn’t have social media because I can only imagine the pettiness she would be hit with at this point after what we have seen with some of the other actors on the show. It is typical behavior to point fingers, place blame and start fights. What is unnoticed by the masses is that blame is misplaced and fights are unproductive.

I know some people are upset because they feel she will be taking time away from Maggie/Sanvers and James/Karolsen. I can understand that they want their faves and ships to have more screen time. I agree that these characters deserve more screen time. However hating on Katie doesn’t achieve that and it is a completely nonsensical reason to do so. A little louder for those in the back:

KATIE IS NOT AT FAULT FOR THE DECISIONS OF THE SHOW RUNNERS/WRITERS.

Did you get that? It’s not turning into the Lena show. Your fave will be just fine. In my opinion, people should be more excited that there is going to be another dynamically developed, strong female character on the show. You’d think we would be hearing more praise about that since there have been complaints about the dwindling numbers of that exact type of character for months now. Here is one in our laps and the actress gets hate? Nope. With all do respect, miss me with that. I hope that James, Maggie and Lena all get fair treatment in their stories next season.

Others are sick of Lena’s fans and Supercorp shippers. I mentioned in a comment on another post on this topic that it is upsetting that a great character and a not only talented but incredibly sweet and giving actress is catching hate due to some of the behavior or her problematic fans. That aspect is embarrassing to say the least. I understand how people can be turned off because of a fandom, but again, don’t hate on Katie. Here’s another bold line:

DISRESPECTFUL FANS/SHIPPERS ARE NOT REPRESENTATIVE OF KATIE MCGRATH AS A PERSON

Why does that even need to be said? I don’t know. You tell me. I know this response won’t end the hate because let’s face it, some people thrive on it and would rather spend time bashing and ranting. But hopefully this message does reach at least a few people.

For the peaceful Katie fans that are here with or without Lena, pretty sure we’re all ready to throw down if we have to. So put your boots on kids. There’s a war coming.

At the Con in Germany last week, Stephen Walters said something interesting: He said he adores Cait, because "Cait really is all heart". I thought that was very interesting, because I think a lot of fans (and especially non shippers) seem to see Cait as a business-woman and much more rational and less emotional as Sam. When I heard SW say that, I thought though, we don't know her at all and that it would explain a lot of Sam's protective behavior towards her. Also for him always taking the blow?

I totally" agree, anon. Cait has said that she can be shy at times-and this may cause some to see her as less “emotional” especially when compared to very outgoing Sam, when it’s really just shyness. Many actors are more comfortable on stage and otherwise dealing with others when they are in a “role” but are afflicted by shyness when doing interviews or fan encounters when they are just “themselves”. This may be true for Cait as well.

But, as you point out, anon, Sam has her back. Big time. He’s not only her biggest cheerleader, but he’s also her biggest protector as well. We saw this in twitter when a fan suggested that Sam was disrespecting Cait. “Idiot” was his succinct, one word response. This is the only time Sam has ever said anything rude to a fan, ever, and it was in defense of Cait. And we saw it again at the London fan meet when some fans tried to give Cait some trouble over her not appearing at fans conventions or going on the world press tour for Outlander.. “It’s too much” Sam said- and continued to make fan con appearances alone, and also did the Outlander world press tour solo so that Cait could have some time before the Money Monster press that would eat up much of her hiatus. And those are just a small sample of the sort of care he takes of her. It’s apparent in every appearance they make together.

So Sam isn’t just talking the talk that he’s concerned for Cait’s welfare and happiness. He’s walking the walk too. Big time.
And all of that adds up to be a bit more concern and care than the average friend would be expected to provide. Especially if the lady, and gentleman, in question had other “obligations”. But it feels just right if these two were instead “obligated” to each other.

PUBLICLY SHIPPING TWO ACTORS WHO ARE NOT DATING IS NOT OKAY.

Let me repeat. Publicly shipping two actors who are not dating is not okay.

I’ve made posts about this before, but I’m seeing it now in the Skam fandom between Tarjei and Henrik, and so I feel the need to talk about this again. You have opinions. You have feelings. You have ships you don’t always mean to have. I get it, and so I cannot tell you not to think Tarjei and Henrik are cute (but also remember Tarjei is 17 so please rethink that one just a little…)

But if you ship any two actors, the respectful and right thing to do is to KEEP IT TO YOURSELF. You can ship them privately, in your head, but as soon as you start sharing those opinions online, it becomes a problem. It may seem innocent to post edits or fics or whatever about to actors on your blog, but it’s bigger than that. Maybe the individual post doesn’t get more than a few notes, but your followers now start thinking about those two actors as more than friends. Maybe one of them starts sharing that ship on their blog too. It spreads. And eventually, it will spread to the actors. Guess what? They don’t want to be shipped with their co-workers.

Because I am in many mlm fandoms, I know this is a huge problem between male actors playing same sex couples. However, this applies to all actors, regardless of gender or sexuality. It is disrespectful to publicly ship actors. You love them so much? Love them by giving them the decent respect a human being deserves. Don’t make them uncomfortable.

“I have the right to do what I want and say what I want.”

You’re absolutely right. You do. Are you saying you choose to hurt others with your freedom? Just because you can ship two actors doesn’t mean you have to.

“Actors know what they sign up for when they get the role.”

Unfortunately, I’m sure a lot of actors do recognize that this bullshit comes with the territory. That doesn’t mean they are okay with it, and that certainly doesn’t mean that they have to put up with it. Just because they know it happens doesn’t mean it has to happen. Actors understanding it occurs doesn’t give you a free pass to make them uncomfortable. Besides, no one can truly prepare themselves for that kind of behavior from fans, no matter how much they try. Anticipating it and experiencing it are two very different things. Also, actors in other countries, like Norway, do not expect this sort of behavior, because there are laws in those countries about privacy for the actors. Not to mention that the people of those countries understand what respecting these actors means and do what they can to not to make them uncomfortable. 

“The actors don’t care. Until they tell us to stop, we don’t have to.”

Unless it gets absolutely unacceptable, actors aren’t going to stand up and tell their fans that they are being bad fans. Why? Because they don’t want to hurt you. And they don’t want to lose you. Just because they aren’t make big, loud, and public statements telling fans to quit their shit doesn’t mean they don’t want you to quit your shit. Actors have asked fans to stop shipping them, and that both didn’t stop fans and sometimes made fans act out angrily. Not every actor should have to go through that for you to understand that actors as a whole want more respect. But do you actually need someone to beg you to stop before you will quit your bad behavior? Seriously?

“You’re just being homophobic.”

(More specific to same sex couples here) Don’t use the LGBT community as a safety blanket for your wrongdoings. If say, hypothetically, Henrik and Tarjei did start dating (and just to stress again that this is hypothetic), I’d support them until the day I die. But they are not dating, and they have not shown any sort of hint at wanting to date. Therefore, urging them to date is not okay. LGBT or not, forcing that relationship, or even the idea of that relationship, is selfish. Don’t. Do. It. And also, when two actors have stated that they are not attracted to their same gender or when they are in a relationship with anyone of any gender, it is not okay to disregard that. I have talked about them before in regards to this issue before, but Matthew Daddario has a long-time girlfriend and Harry Shum Jr. has a wife. They will not date each other, and not being able to mentally separate Magnus and Alec from Matt and Harry is a problem you should fix, not feed into.

I know that it all seems innocent. I know that it all seems private on your blog. I know that it all seems insignificant in the grand scheme of things. But if you can do this one small thing for the actors you claim to love and support, why won’t you do it? You’re probably feeling defensive right now. You want to go into the tags and reblog all about these ships you have because someone on the internet is telling you that you’re wrong. You’re angry. But please, I am begging you, because I too love these actors, think about it from their perspective. Think about how it would feel to have someone make edits and write fics about you with someone you are not attracted to, someone you work with, and someone you respect. Actors are friends. They should be able to hang out together, not just work together, without fans reading too far into it and making them uncomfortable. 

You’re not a bad person, but you are doing something bad. The bright side? You can stop. You don’t have to keep publicly shipping those actors again. You don’t have to keep posting edits and fics on your blog. You don’t have to keep commenting on their social medias about them dating. There are so many wonderful, acceptable ships out there between fictional characters, or even actors who are dating (but again be careful and respectful, because they are still real people). 

Please respect these wonderful people who are working so hard to entertain you. They love you. Now it’s your turn to love them.


Also note: while I referred to actors in this post, this refers to anyone in the spotlight (or really anyone in general). Actors, singers, and more. Respect everyone, please.

Also as a fandom, can we agree to not send hate to Rahul Kohli just because he’s playing a character that some of fandom immediately doesn’t like? I don’t watch iZombie, but a quick look at his social media and he seems like a cool person. He likes Star Wars which is already a +1 in my books. 

anonymous asked:

Can you tell us some facts about Tarjei?? I don't know much about him and since I saw you're one his fans I thought you could tell me something more!

Lmao I don’t know much either but sure why not lemme try ahahha

1) His full name Tarjei Sandvik Moe

2) He is 17 years old and his birthday is 24th May 1999

3) He is a theatre kid, he has always done plays, musicals, and theatre, but SKAM is his first official job as an actor.

4) He studies music, dance, and drama at Hartvig Nissens Skole, which is the exact same school used in SKAM. He’s also the same age as the character he plays.

5) It’s revealed in his current play “Det går bra” that he suffers from social anxiety since kindergarten. (This might be a character exaggeration for the play but it’s not that farfetched really) 

6) Hence why he does not have any public social media. He deleted his Instagram right before season 3 took off, and his Facebook is private apart from a few public posts.

7) He has 5 best friends which he goes to school with which is Rumen, David (Magnus on SKAM), Alfred, Jakob, and Shaun. I mention this because they’re kinda a clique lol. They are always together and there’s even a fan Instagram account dedicated to them called boyzsquad4443

8) Tarjei is relatively shy and awkward in fan encounters but he’s completely confident on stage performing.

9) He is currently filiming 2 shows which is season 4 of Skam, and Østkant/Vestkant, and he is performing in Antiteateret’s play “Det går bra”

10) He is nominated for Best Actor in Gullruten 2017!

Hi, sorry, i'm new to your blog, and i really like reading your opinions on the descent of ouat to mediocrity. But, i just wanna know why do you dislike jmo? Did she do something horrible or smth? Personally, i don't delve into private lives of the actors, because i feel like it would affect my perception on the characters they play... But, i'm curious just what made you dislike/not care about her?

Her decisions on Emma’s wardrobe as of late (from about season 4-on), because she wanted her to be more feminine. That’s costume department’s job, because they know the character’s style, according to the personality they want to convey. Every little detail has a meaning, as much as some people claim not to be the case- call us delusional, or say we are looking for things where there are none. Unless you have worked or studied something in the field, you know every fucking piece of garment (color, stlye, etc) has a message encoded in it.

i know that as a storyboard artist you don't meet the actors. but were you ever present during a recording session? thanks!

I don’t remember it ever being said board artists don’t get to meet the actors. I’ve met Al three times and Mekai once. X) Both are incredibly kind and sweet.
And yes I have been. Only once. But that was because I was able to get ahead of my work schedule and had some time to spare.

What is the spntapeball? Does the ball get taped once Every Episode or? I'm really confused - sorry for the weird ask

Thanks for the ask! I don’t know a huge amount of stuff about it, but here’s what I’ve gathered. 

The spntapeball (link to instagram) is a ball of tape that was peeled off the floors from all the scenes where said tape (color-coded by actor) indicates the actor’s mark (where they’re supposed to be standing at the start of any given scene). You might remember seeing Sam and Dean’s marks in “The French Mistake.”

For some reason, someone thought it’d be a good idea to start gathering all the tape and making it into a ball. It’s really interesting to see the ball after every episode, because you can figure out which colors are for which actors and then see which colors appear most often on the ball.

In this photo, you can see that Sam is red, Dean is blue, Rowena is pink, Crowley is orange (orange-red?), and Cas is yellow. 

I’ve been watching some voice actor panels and it came up a few times about what would happen if Edward Elric met Tamaki (& the Host Club) and so I felt like drawing this.

P.S. I know there are more lines there, I was just summarising because I’m lazy.

anonymous asked:

A season 7 renewal they clearly don't deserve. And as a thank you they strive for a new record of retcons. I don't watch this garbage for a long time now but I'm looking forward to the ratings. There is nothing good left of this show and they still want to burn it more down.

True. They’ve been doing things horribly wrong, for far too long. From writing atrociously shallow storylines for characters they simply didn’t know how to use (and who we still appreciated, mostly due to some of the actors’ deliveries) to unspeakably bad ‘PR’ (or well, the crap they tried to pass as PR anyway) which… well, the way they promoted the musical screamed of desperation. And now I am not sure why anyone wonders why the renewal, and reboot/reset brings VERY little confidence?

So what do we have now? As the hearsay goes, it’s Regina without Henry, Emma, Zelena and Charmings, Hook without Emma and Rumple without Belle, it sounds rather like… they wanted to keep only the most popular characters–and save a shetload of money by letting literally everyone else go? And then the ‘reset’ can be just some other realm (or however they’re going to explain separation from everyone else, because… they can’t put all of them in a coma) and all filmed in front of the green screen, to make it even more cheap-o? *scoffs* And what with their relentless Hook boner, this rather sounds like that other show we here often mention, Buffy the Vampire Slayer–being ruined when the main character was dragged down into filth for her LI. And after which, knowing that he wouldn’t be able to hold a show on his own shoulders, they offered a spinoff to then 23yo guest star with a pitch “Faith, roaming around on motorcycle, slaying demons with Spike as her sidekick”, but–knowing how that would probably turn out (being sidelined for him, possibly also being reduced to a love interest, and… sheesh, as much as I was into dudes back then–shirtless ageing manflesh that we got in Buffy’s S6/7 was just… *shivers unpleasantly*) she flat out refused it? So… what do you think, what direction will Hook’s story take–after Emma being gone?

Yeah, I don’t want to go there either. I don’t know about the rest of you, but since unlike many, we didn’t end up “here just for Lana” and the the ‘ensemble’ show we signed up for (the one with three female leads, all strong, imposing characters–anyone still remembers them?) is about to be ‘reset’ into an all-dude-show+Regina… well.

anonymous asked:

Oh man, how are you holding on? I mean, do people actually think the ACTORS would say that they know the show is renewed? Why would we take the actors' words as true, especially when they are not ALLOWED to say anything until is official. I'm getting ulceras just seeing some BNF think that because an actor X says they don't know, then it must be true, and how the show is so over because the GA won't watch without their fave... I mean, just WAIT 5 DAYS....

Once the renewal comes in and we have the final cast list I’m going to spill some major tea about illogical thinking and outright lying in some of these cases.

But pre tea:  The fandom is not representative of the GA.  If you are in fandom you have no idea what the GA thinks or why it watches.  Because if you are in fandom you don’t watch like the GA watches.  And your interpretation of your mother/sister/friend/cashier in the grocery store isn’t a valid gauge on the GA either.
