Happy Birthday Stephanie J. Block 9.19.72

When i say I love live theatre it is petrifying. But this is exactly why you do it. Because you kind of face the thing you fear with a huge smile in front of people and it’s up to you to make it happen. If something goes wrong it’s happening live and you roll with the punches and keep the story telling going. And if something wonderful happens, it’s happening there in the moment and that audience lets you know so that’s the beauty of what we do.

“I spent centuries wandering the world, from empires to kingdoms to wastelands, never settling, never stopping—not for one moment. I was always looking toward the horizon, always wondering what waited across the next ocean, over the next mountain. But I think … I think that whole time, all those centuries, I was just looking for you.”

In honour of Black History Month coming up (October in the UK) I wanted to do a sorting of my favourite characters from TV, film and comic books. Representation matters. Diversity matters. I’m barely scratching the surface here, but these are some of my favourites.
