Missandei // April 2017 for Character Design Challenge!
“A slave who served as an interpreter to the masters of Astapor, Missandei was freed when Daenerys Targaryen took the Unsullied army and used it to overthrow the slavers. Missandei now serves Daenerys as her trusted advisor and Handmaiden.”
Asha / Yara Greyjoy, an incredible character that I really like !
I did her character design for the character design challenge based on Game of Thrones, but I ended choosing the Sansa one after all.
By the way, Greyjoys are my favourite family in GOT and this character concept of Asha is based by her look in the book, where she’s described as a short-haired girl (and with a slight different concept in her clothes) !
1. My favourite part about this video is that when Big Bird asks what autism is, the response is “Well for Julia, it’s…” Sesame Street is acknowledging that autism is different for everyone, and Julia can’t possibly represent the entire spectrum.
2. While it was very well done, this episode seemed like just another PSA about autism told mostly from a second-hand perspective. We see how Julia reacts to her friends and her surroundings, but other people are speaking for her. I don’t want every episode about Julia to be that way. I want her to be a part of the main cast as her own character who autistic children can connect with. She doesn’t always have to be explained to other children, they can just learn to love her for who she is.
With that being said, Sesame Street is on the right track so far and I hope they continue to get better.
“Tarth. I’m biased, but she keeps it together.” -Nikolaj Coster-Waldau to HBO on which character do you admire the most?
“I love the character of Jaime Lannister. He’s just so complex…” -Gwendoline Christie
“Gwen and I have a lot of fun together, I wish it could go on forever.” -Nikolaj Coster-Waldau
Nikolaj is a very special actor. He’s brilliant, hilarious and
mercurial. And again, incredibly highly skilled. I felt nervous about
acting opposite someone that was so highly skilled that I’d be working
with so intensely, but he completely went for it from the beginning and
was not afraid to go full-throttle on all of the scenes. And to really
feed the relationship off-screen, too, by endlessly teasing me, haha.
It’s really fun and hard work. He’s a brilliant actor. And I’ve had an
absolute ball. I’ve had a real riot.“-Gwendoline Christie
“If you meet Gwen, you’ll know that she is light.” -Nikolaj Coster-Waldau
