Harmful method acting does not = success. Just bc Platt harmed himself (is emotionally drained and in physical therapy) for his role does not mean he is obligated to get a tony. No one owes you or him anything bc of his harming himself. Injuring yourself for art is not admirable and it is not a good show of dedication. I love ben Platt and I love DEH I saw it live last month and it was amazing I sobbed and smiled and I felt understood. Platt deserves a tony for the emotion he put in the role, for his singing talent. He is so much better than expecting praise for his injury. Christian Borle didn’t deserve praise for his unhealthy weight loss in AIA. NPH didn’t deserve praise for an onstage injury almost every nigh in HATI. Someone deserves praise for being in a taxing role and still practicing self care. Andrew Rannells, didn’t pick up ONE unhealthy habit in Falsettos he didn’t force himself to lose weight to look sick, he healthily dealt with the emotions the show made him feel. Anthony Rosenthal a 12-13 yr old kid deserves praise for practicing self care in the very same show with such heavy content that I wouldn’t be able to handle when I was his age. Lena Hall deserves praise for taking care of her voice through all her demanding roles. People looking to get onto Broadway; HARMFUL HABITS TO YOUR BODY DO NOT MAKE YOU MORE CREDITED AS AN ACTOR OR MORE DEDICATED TAKING CARE OF YOURSELF SHOWS DEDICATION.
And I’m not saying Ben is bad for picking up these habits sometimes it’s inevitable and he’s dealing with it very well though he deserves a week off soon in my opinion. All I’m saying is people need to stop praising this and saying he deserves a tony because of it. He doesn’t. He deserves it for the same reason everyone else does he’s talented, he lives in his role he’s trying to change the bad habits and injuries he picked up that = GOOD. Don’t allow young theater people to think you have to do this sort of thing to get recognition for your talent
Honestly I will be so pissed at jk rowling if Credence Barebone turns out to be an antagonist/villian in future fbawtbt movies.
There are already
parallels between him and Tom Riddle: orphaned raised by
muggles/no-majs, have powerful magic within them, not to mention
going into their back stories; I’ve read theories that Credence
could possibly be related to the Gaunts and Slytherine through his
birth mother’s linage.
Like I know jk has
been problematic in the past but if she insists on making another
villian out of a neglected/abused orphan what kind of message would
she be sending?
Credence had a horrific upbrining does not make him naturally
inclined toward evil and if jk insists on making that link I will be
How about giving us
a parallel to Tom Riddle who was good, who went through similar
horrible things but didn’t let it destroy his kindness. (I know
Harry fits the bill but I want to focus on Credence)
What I’m really
saying is if Jk just does a lazy job and makes him a proto-Voldemort
I will be so let down. ]
Au where Draco speaks broken English because his first language is French. And when he’s trying to intimidate Harry or he’s angry or frustrated he’ll go into French and Harry most certainly does not find it hot ok Ron shut up-
Imagine if Jily were alive during Harry’s second year
Harry and Ron: *crash the Weasley’s car into the Whomping Willow*
THE NEXT DAY
Ron: *gets a howler*
RONALD WEASLEY! HOW DARE YOU STEAL THAT CAR! I AM ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTED! YOUR FATHER’S NOW FACING AN INQUIRY AT WORK AND IT’S ENTIRELY YOUR FAULT! IF YOU PUT ANOTHER TOE OUT OF LINE WE’LL BRING YOU STRAIGHT HOME! — Oh, and Ginny dear, congratulations on making Gryffindor. Your father and I are so proud.
*awkward headshake by Ginny*
Harry: *gets a howler*
*Lily’s stern and angry voice* HARRY JAMES POTTER! HOW DARE YOU PULL SUCH AN IDIOTIC STUNT! YOU COULD HAVE BEEN- *cut off by James’ even more louder, albeit excited as fuck voice* A FLYING CAR! YOU RODE A BLOODY FLYING CAR! I AM SO GONNA TALK WITH YOU ABOUT THIS! I AM SO HAPPY- HECK I AM SO BLOODY PROUD! A FLYING CAR! HOW’S- *cut off by an even more excited Sirius’ voice* MERLIN’S SAGGY PANTS! YOU ARE JUST THE PERFECT MARAUDER OFFSPRING AREN’T YA?! I AM PROUD TO BE YOUR GODFATHER! JUST YOU COME HOME! I’LL TEACH YOU- *cut off by Moony’s frustrated voice* Padfoot! Prongs! NO!
* occasional clapping and sounds of party poppers bursting in the background, obviously done by Wormtail*
Ron during the Feast: How come do you not get scolded! ;_;
Harry (smirking): It’s a Marauder thing.
McGonagall (who obviously hears that comment while passing the timetable): Trust me, Mr. Weasley. It’s truly a Marauder thing.
