This is how he recommends the show ...

Not a single word on the stellar acting, phenomenal costume or set design. Nothing about the incredibly talented writers, camera or sound departments. Nothing about the outstanding multi million copy body of work of Diana Gabaldon that the show is based on. Not a word about the historical accuracy, the cultural aspects, the beauty of the Scottish country . All that he can muster is this .That former VS model is an award winning acting powerhouse. The male lead is an unbelievably talented actor who matches her  in every single scene. With his “recommendation” he has shown that he has no interest or knowledge of what real talent is. He has trivialized the entire production. With friends like this who needs enemies.

Indian-born doctor Sneha Philip is officially listed as the 2751st victim of 9/11.  But for years after her disappearance, Sneha’s final hours were shrouded in mystery. She was last seen the day before the attacks, captured on camera by a Manhattan department store.  When she didn’t return home that night, as she frequently didn’t, her husband Ron thought little of it. After the attacks, he returned to their apartment, only to find it empty. The windows left open, dust had settled throughout, though the only tracks left were those of their 2 kittens.

When police initially determined that Sneha had perished in the attacks, Ron took matters into his own hands.  After hiring private investigator Ken Gallant and reviewing the evidence, the pair eventually agreed, theorising that Sneha had rushed to the site to provide medical help, and died in the ensuing collapse. However, when police began to investigate further, they came up with a different theory entirely. A respectable New York doctor to the outside world, Sneha led something of a double life - suffering from alcohol and drug abuse, marital problems, work dismissals and even trouble with the law, having spent a night in jail earlier that year.  On September 10th, the last day Sneha was seen alive, she had been officially charged with falsely reporting an incident, to which she pleaded not guilty.  According to police reports, she and her husband fought loudly at the courthouse, in the last exchange Ron would ever share with his wife.  With this in mind, authorities suggested she may have intentionally disappeared, or even been murdered, on the day before the attacks.

Ron strongly opposed the claims made against Sneha, along with various members of her family.  They claimed she had been fired not due to her alcoholism, but because her superiors had deemed her a whistleblower.  Conceding that though his wife did often spend nights at lesbian bars, Ron was sure that it was not for sexual purposes.  The drinking, he hoped, was just a phase she was going through, and he denied ever arguing with Sneha on the day of her arraignment.  After being struck from the list of victims, Sneha’s family appealed the ruling, and was she was eventually re-added 7 years later. Like over 1000 other victims that day, no physical remains of Sneha have ever been found.

I worked on The Flash with Tom [Cavanagh] and you know working in the camera department you’re standing right next to him watching the guy act and you can just tell he’s an incredible actor and just watching him do this stuff… he can switch it on and off in a second and I was like, “Tom, you have to do this thing.“ And he’s like, “Okay, I’m in.” It’s really as simple as that.

People are trying to start a petition to cancel the 100? What the actual heck? I know your favorite character got killed off, but there’s hundreds of other people who work on this show. The incredible cast, hair and makeup artists, wardrobe department, lighting/camera crew, writers, and just a ton of other jobs Seriously. This is peoples livelihood. How about you start an actual petition that would actually help? Like a petition to fire Jason Rothenberg? Hmm? Pretty sure he’s the source of everyones problems

Ava Gardner was visiting her sister Beatrice in New York in 1941 when Beatrice’s husband Larry Tarr, a professional photographer, offered to take her portrait. He was so pleased with the results that he displayed the finished product in the front window of his Tarr Photography Studio on Fifth Avenue.

A Loews Theatres legal clerk, Barnard Duhan, spotted Gardner’s photo in Tarr’s studio. At the time, Duhan often posed as an MGM talent scout to meet girls, using the fact that MGM was a subsidiary of Loews. Duhan entered Tarr’s and tried to get Gardner’s number, but was rebuffed by the receptionist. Duhan made the offhand comment, “Somebody should send her info to MGM”, and the Tarrs did so immediately. Shortly after, Gardner, who at the time was a student at Atlantic Christian College, traveled to New York to be interviewed at MGM’s New York office by Al Altman, head of MGM’s New York talent department. With cameras rolling, he directed the eighteen-year-old to walk towards the camera, turn and walk away, then rearrange some flowers in a vase. He did not attempt to record her voice because her Southern accent made it almost impossible for him to understand her. Louis B. Mayer, head of the studio, however, sent a telegram to Al: “She can’t sing, she can’t act, she can’t talk, She’s terrific!" She was offered a standard contract by MGM, and left school for Hollywood in 1941 with her sister Beatrice accompanying her. MGM’s first order of business was to provide her a speech coach, as her Carolina drawl was nearly incomprehensible to them. (x)
