So, I think that even more than just putting Black people in shows, there need to be stories that reflect the Black experience. Make sense of Black, Brown, Asian… experience, because [it’s important] not just for ethnic minorities, I think it’s an education for everybody. And I think it leads to a much more tolerant society if we’re exposed to each others’ stories. It just makes sense and it’s important. Very-very important. And i certainly like to keep an eye on things like that, and talk a lot, among my actor friends, about the lack of diversity. It’s an issue for sure. (x)

//Mitchell makes me cry because he is so multi-layered and both his human and vampire sides are portrayed so well, like sometimes he’s this

and sometimes he’s this

sometimes he’s all sultry and brooding and unfff like

then he’s also like “don’t touch my friends I love them and I will end u bitch”

and he hates himself so much and that’s not fair bc he tries so hard

and then he’s got this total goofball status 

and he’s just bloody adorable and I want to cuddle his face

also that one time he snuggled a ghost baby

John Mitchell is a precious bae in need of so much love and multiple blankets don’t y’all dare fight me on this okay bye
