‘The electric street-lamp may indeed be ignored, simply because it is so insignificant and transient. Fairy-stories, at any rate, have many more permanent and fundamental things to talk about.‘ (J.R.R. Tolkien in On Fairy-Stories)

‘In about ten minutes she reached it and found it was a lamp-post. As she stood looking at it, wondering why there was a lamp-post in the middle of a wood and wondering what to do next…’ (C.S. Lewis, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe)

aka 'am I petty enough to write a lamp-post into my story just because my friend said it’s a 'no-no’ in fantasy? Why yes, yes I am.’

Happy Birthday ♋︎Georgina Helen Henley♋︎

❝ Lucy is quite a lot like me in a way so it was very easy to slip into her character. Lucy’s the youngest of the four Pevensies and nobody takes her opinions seriously as the story begins. When she opens this wardrobe, she’s in a new world and she feels as though her feelings mean something there.❞

We ended up spending a lot of time together, me and Georgie. We got on really, really well, but then the first time I was in my make up – I have a tiny little nose piece and the wig and the ears and the legs and all that – she found it very difficult. Suddenly it wasn’t me. We had to play a lot of very serious, very dark scenes. She didn’t like it all the time. And I found it very tough because I didn’t want to upset her, you know? I had to explain - and she knew but it’s still difficult - but just reiterate all the time that everything’s fine and when I’m crying I’m not really crying and when they say cut I’m not gonna go crying, you know?
