While I Was Clearing Out My Desktop, I Found This Gem

It Still Remains as One of My Life Goals: Find Someone Who Will Hug Me the Same Way Oscar Hugged Evan

So Rhode Island Comic Con is over and it’s so very bitter sweet. I️ met SO many cool people, did all sorts of cool things, and met Sebastian Stan!! That being said, I’ve never been to such a disorganized convention. There were times it was a hot mess and it seemed like no one knew what was going on or that everyone had been given different directions. But! The important thing is that I️ interacted with Sebastian. It was the highlight of my life, honestly. I️ was so pleased with our autograph and photo op yesterday, but it only got better today. I️ met Sebastian twice this morning! The first time I️ tagged along as a friend got an autograph, and there was almost no one in line so we walked right up to him. When you’re speaking, he looks you dead in the eyes and his eyes are crystal clear. When I️ walked by him, I️ said, “I’m so looking forward to I️, Tonya.” And he said, “Yes! Please go see it.” And I️ said, “I️ have tickets to the screening in Hollywood next weekend!” And he did that thing he does when he’s surprised where he like looks amazed and laughed and said, “Oh my god!” Then I️ decided Dave’s line was too crazy and I️ upgraded to another Sebastian autograph. So same thing, we walked right up to him and I️ put the picture in front of him and I️ said, “I️ really want a tattoo for Bucky Barnes, will you draw me something?” And he was like, “What? Oh god.” And I️ said, “No pressure. But you know him better than any one.” So he started to draw a star and he was hesitant, so I️ joked with him and I️ was like, “Is this too much pressure? Do you want me to turn around?” And he laughed and said, “no, you’re good.” Then he finished, told me to tell the tattoo artist to put the star between the initials, then he laughed at his own work and said, “Please think twice before getting it.” And I️ thanked him. After that, we had some time to kill before the autographs, but it was so. So. Worth it. For the first one, we asked him to wear my Sebastian Stan sweater, but he said “Oh man, it would take forever to get it on, so I’ll do this” And he just held it up against his chest and then we played tug of war over him. So perfect. I’m on the left.

Then I️ had a picture with him by myself and I️ showed him a picture of what I️ wanted to do. I️ said, “Can we do this? You don’t have to get that close if you don’t want.” Because the couple in the picture were pressing their foreheads together. Without saying anything, he looked me DEAD in the eyes and slowly leaned in closer. And closer. His eyes were literally all I️ could see. He didn’t stop until the brim of his hat touched my forehead. I️ was so overwhelmed that I️ didn’t even notice when the picture was taken. I️ touched his beard and man. So soft. So, so soft. He was unbelievably sweet and wonderful all weekend and I️ hope everyone was just as kind to him ❤️

Of course, please don’t crop me out of the pictures.

What me and Peter used to do, I would usually get picked up at say 5, 5:30, and then on Doctor Who we were on set at 7:30, on camera to rehearse, and then you film through to 7 pm is the kind of schedule that you’re on. So what me and Peter began to do a lot is because Peter, in particular, his dialogue is insane, and, more often than not, I’m pretty fast at learning lines anyway, but not the kind of jargon that he has. So we’d just run them together in between takes. (x)

[What planted the seed for you to be politically outspoken, activists, and advocates? What are you excited about this year with World Child Cancer?]

“I think that’s how my parents raised me, you know? I think they raised me to be a citizen of the world, and to be politically conscious, and to look out for anyone who’s less fortunate, and to sort of fight for justice in whatever form. That’s just  p a r t  o f  w h o  I  a m .

I’m really excited. World Child Caner continues to grow. I think we’re going to do, I think, another t-shirt campaign soon. So, yeah. It’s just such a great thing I’ve been able to be a part of and I’m really proud of the work they do everywhere.”


Official shout-out to Mama and Papa Balfe for raising such a strong, kindhearted, intelligent, generous, amazing woman. May we all strive to be a little more like her every day 💜

IT HAPPENED. IT FINALLY FUCKING HAPPENED. I met my Walking Dead Dream Team: Negan, Carol, and Daryl. They loved my cosplay, my questions for them, and hugged me and said they hoped to see me again!! I’m so happy right now yo, words can’t express my emotional state. I freaking love all three of these actors: Norman, Melissa, and, of course, Jeffrey. ❤❤❤

Pack mates! I think I’ve died and been reborn in paradise. 😆😁🤓😎✌🤙

My take away from RICC…

And my 15 minutes or so one on one, uninterrupted conversation I got to have with Sebastian Stan…

Everyone always talk about how sweet and kind Seb is, and, a few months ago, when he wrote how he wanted to help someone…

I just have to say…his entire demeanor changes when he talks about helping somebody. We were having a nice, easy going, laid back conversation, and when the mention of him helping people…his entire body language shifted.

His damn eyes even lit up just talking about what else he could do to help complete, total strangers.

There’s a solid chance I stared at him in awe when he did that…holy shit.

Then, we went right back to shooting-the-shit.

Class act, right there. If I wasn’t already as much of a fan of his as I already am, didn’t already admire the little tidbits he has given us of his personality…watching that shift in his demeanor would have made me a lifelong fan of his entirely.

He genuinely cares about people.

It was amazing to witness up close like that.
