Unpopular PoTO opinion (Rant)
I need to say this… I hate Sierra Boggess’ portrayal of Christine. I really hate it, I think she’s one of the worst Christines. I don’t understand why so much of the fandom seems to not only like her but practically worship her “Sierra IS Christine, No one can beat Sierra etc”
Why don’t I like her performance? The acting is the worst part, she overacts to a ridiculous degree. She already looks too old for the part and then she does this over the top scared-little-girl act that is so forced and so annoying. She doesn’t understand or even seem to like the character from what she’s said in interviews about Christine being “always scared” and “one dimensional”
The singing… Not that great. The grannies in the back can hear her fucking breathing clear as day and omfg what is that atrocious accent? (I was planning on being pc and polite but I can’t help but rant) Yeah, her singing really is nothing special compared to the many talented women who have taken on Christine.
So I don’t like her performance, okay fine, that’s not really a problem except that she is everywhere. I already mentioned that the fandom worships her. I think it’s probably because the 25th anniversary is the one that most people have access to so she’s probably just one of the few Christines a lot of fans have seen.
It also really bothers me how she gets so many more Christine roles than other actresses and so much more attention, even if I liked her that’s still really shitty since there are SO MANY young women out there who are wonderfully talented and deserve opportunity as well.
If you like Sierra, that’s totally fine but I haven’t seen any real negative opinions and I’m tired of feeling like everyone loves her and I can’t say how I feel without being attacked by a hoard of wannabe theater nerds. If you agree with me at all please reblog and add your thoughts because I want to see who else dislikes Sierra’s Christine. Don’t be afraid Phans, join us!
