Success is terrifying. Like happiness, it is often appreciated in retrospect. It’s only later that you place it in perspective. Years from now, I’ll look back and say, “God, wasn’t it wonderful?” (1965)

Olivia Hussey as Juliet Capulet in Romeo and Juliet (1968).

The question was, were you guys comic book fans as kids?

Can I just point out that after Sebastian said that he grew up in communism, Tom and Letitia are like quietly respectful. Letitia has this empathetic look on her face (not sorry, but empathetic)… and Tom; Tom was all fidgety before but after Seb talked, Tom had this quiet, almost heartbroken and relatively fascinated expression… looking at Sebastian like, “Oh you poor thing. I could only imagine what it was like growing up in communist Romania. Tell me anything you want and I will listen…”

You can even see how Seb laughs when he talks about “only the news” being on for an hour but there’s a sort of hidden something there and Tom smiles along with him before the smile fades and he’s just listening to Seb talk, like Letitia.

And it could just be me reading too much into things BUT… I think that’s what’s so beautiful about the people MARVEL casts. They’re from such different backgrounds but they’re humble and perceptive and kind and genuinely in awe of each other. Sigh. 💚

I love so much about this tiny clip from Doctor Who Confidential

  • David tries to protect Freema & Catherine from his earth-shattering sneeze by moving away from them
  • Freema covers her ears to protect herself from the sound-barrier breaking blast
  • Catherine is 100% not bothered.  Not even the tiniest flinch
  • That the producers of Doctor Who Confidential thought David’s sneeze (and Freema & Catherine’s reactions - or lack thereof) was worth including in the episode - and I thank them for it

I’ve really come into my own as an artist. I’m much more sure of my identity and understand it much better, and have accepted the fact that I like to jump around a lot in terms of who I am and what kind of music I create, and that it is okay - in fact, that is my main identity, the fact that I do that.
