-In the beginning, when they were still looking for someone to play the part of All Might, the director and crew didn’t even pick someone from the actors that tried out. They just saw Izuku getting dropped off by his blonde guy, promptly flipped because he WAS ALL MIGHT TO A T, and RAN over to ask him to try out.
-Toshinori was very surprised when he was nearly plowed over by a bunch of enthusiastic people asking him to try out as a character in the show. When someone asked how he knew Izuku, he just stammered, “well, I’m his father,” and that sent everyone into happy yelling again.
-Katsuki: “Does he always get this much fucking attention?”
Shinsou: “Izuku, let me know when your father leaves so I can get some sleep.”
-Toshinori ended up getting the part, of course. He was pretty happy with it, especially when he found out that All Might’s relationship with Izuku was meant to be so much like father and son. And then the actress playing Inko came up to shyly introduce herself to him and he was suddenly VERY happy about his new job indeed. Even if he was blushing stupidly and stuttering throughout his entire conversation with her.
-The first time Enji ever stepped on set to play Endeavor, he intimidated a lot of the teenagers. First of all, he was huge. Second of all, they all knew who he’d volunteered to play and weren’t sure whether he’d be bad-tempered or something. One of the first things he did was introduce himself to Shouto. It was quite a sight: this burly guy towering over Shouto while Shouto blinked up at him, a little nervous.
-Enji: “So, I guess we’re gonna be working together, huh?”
Shouto: “I— Yeah.”
Enji: “Well, I’m looking forward to it. Heard a lot of great things about you here.” And he smiles as he shakes Shouto’s hand and Shouto is left with a lot of relief and his ears tinged pink. He ducks his head and mumbles, “thank you. I look forward to working with you too.”
Enji turns to the director and pouts. “What the hell, how am I supposed to pretend I hate this kid?”
-Needless to say, they get along fine. Shouto would never admit it aloud, but his real father is out of the picture now, and he honestly wouldn’t mind if Enji really was his father. He has a lot of trouble acting in the scenes where Endeavor’s abuse is shown.
-Though he doesn’t have too much of an appearance in the second season, Shinsou stays with the crew almost every day. Even when he has nothing to do. Everyone asks him why he doesn’t just sleep at home, he does nothing but sleep here. His answer to that is, “Aizawa lets me sleep in his dressing room when he’s not there and that bastard dragged his own mattress in there.”
-Aizawa denies that he went through the trouble of hauling a mattress into his dressing room. The rest of them (mainly Kiri and Denki, who are nosy as hell) make it their personal mission to prove whether or not he’s lying. It’s going slow though, because everyone is a little scared of Aizawa.
-Hizashi, Aizawa’s friend and the actor of Present Mic, stole a megaphone on the first day on set and yelled in his best Mic voice: “DAY ONE GUYS!! WHO’S READY?!”
-Katsuki jumped and yelled “FUCK,” Izuku dropped his script, and Shinsou woke up shouting about how he was going to murder all of them for this.
-Hizashi never got to continue the countdown in the following days because Aizawa promptly snatched the megaphone from him and threw it into the trash.
You don’t need the instructions. When was the last time you’ve ever used instructions? Am I right? You don’t need them because you are too smart to waste your time with them, okay? You can figure it out. Stiles, you’re the one who always figures it out. So you can do it. Figure it out.
There are skies and then there are Blue Ridge Parkway skies. The southern end of the parkway in North Carolina winds through the highest elevations, offering dramatic mountain top views. When photographer Robert Stephens chanced upon this scene at Bear Trap Gap, he said “It almost felt like an out of body experience. You can’t believe what you’re seeing, but it’s there! I was so in awe of the light filtering over the ridges I had to remember to snap my shutter!” Photo courtesy of Robert Stephens.
