Falling in love with my best friend, which, you know, Laurel’s best friend was Wes and she was always looking after him and I never thought that that they’d become a couple but it made so much sense when it happened. Little by little we sold a very deep relationship with very few scenes. I knew…I personally knew, when I was pregnant, I knew it was gonna be Wes under the sheet, unfortunately. I was like ok, I see where this is going and this is super sad but I only have a few more scenes with his guy and… he’s my best friend in real life as well. We were both aware of how important these little scenes were. I remember the scene in the bed me taking off his watch, little things like the tub scene, the flashbacks, like all those scenes were so important because we knew we weren’t gonna have much more. That scene where she goes to Wes’ apartment and she opens the door and there’s a shirt there… I didn’t know how they were gonna place the shirt… so grabbing the shirt and feeling like I was holding his hand but, you know, his hand was no longer there. I could relate to it because, I’m also losing… I mean I know that he (Alfie) is still alive and bless him but Alfie’s a person that’s changed my life. Like as an actress, as a person, and him leaving is so sad for all of us so it was very easy to connect to the emotions of that. And I’m gonna miss him, tremendously. I still hope that it was really his twin. Hashtag it wasn’t really Wes it was his evil twin from Haiti. Alfie and I literally would spend hours in our trailers rehearsing the scenes that we had together. I don’t know if it’s also the Spanish aspect… the fact that we share Spanish and French heck. I sent him to Mexico to spend time with my family and I didn’t even go like thats how close the guy is. I feel like I can bring anything up even things that I wouldn’t dare to bring up to anyone else I would bring it up with him. When you feel that safe with someone i think the acting also becomes something a lot realer, more honest.
Sometimes I feel like dc writers are so into Joker b/c they don't have to know any backstory or characterization to write him, they just have to be 'crazy' (chaotic evil, really). His characterizations flip-flops all over, so they literally can't go wrong. When you write Joker, you can be a lazy writer. The other villains actually require some effort to get right. (Which is why they are better characters)
