i just really love the voiceovers

Watching the Princess Bride I kept thinking about how awesome it would be for Cas to use his pop culture knowledge and start saying “As You Wish” to Dean. But then I realised that he doesn’t need to say “As You Wish” because he already has his own version.

“Of Course”.

anonymous asked:

What do you mean about the voiceover?

Oh, well I mean it could be nothing at all, but I just thought it was interesting that during the final scene with Arizona and Eliza the voiceover was saying:

“The body adapts, it protects itself. But it can’t close off completely or you’re not really living.”

Because that’s what’s happening, right? Arizona has adapted. She’s adapted to a life without Callie, without the love of her life. She’s built up this life without Callie because she had no choice (as far as she was concerned) and she had to protect her heart from continuing to be broken. But she also wants to…enjoy herself. She’s accepted that she’s allowed to enjoy life without Callie, that she can move on in SOME way, so that’s what she’s finally doing.

I mean the parallels to Meredith are striking, if you ask me. The parallels between Calzona and MerDer always were.

Arizona’s love didn’t die tragically, but it was a similar kind of grief over the end of their relationship, probably the greatest loss of her life. And Meredith’s moving on too and accepting that she can be happy without Derek….but at the end of the day, is she ever, ever going to love someone like she loved him? Like she loved her one and only McDreamy? I certainly don’t think so.

trirulian  asked:

Hey! Just wanted to say I've loved your work in Zelda, danganronpa, and persona! I was wondering how you first gained confidence in your voice acting? For me I have trouble really putting my all into voices when others are around. I DM a D&D group and I thought it would be a good place to practice but I always get to nervous and don't go full out. Are there smaller steps I can do?

Really the first major step to making any progress in a performance-based activity is to stop letting the ‘fear of failure’ (or more succinctly, the fear of looking like a fool) undermine everything you do. One of the easiest tells of when someone is still dealing with ‘environmental wariness’ is when they do what I call soft yelling - yelling in a quiet voice (usually a near-whisper), usually to avoid pissing off family members/neighbors nearby. Rather than expressing their excitement and eagerness to try something fun or silly, people tend to be afraid about being ridiculed or dismissed; they don’t want to do anything unless they’re sure it will come out perfect…which often means never doing it at all.

Admittedly I might have had a bit of an unfair advantage, because current me is still pretty shameless at times and younger me was an undeniable attention whore; getting other people’s attention hasn’t really ever been a personal issue, for better or for worse.

Nothing really I can say that will help beyond that - your most important moments of growth will come from just doing it instead of reading about how. Practice makes (near) perfect!

2.17 ‘Flash Back’ liveblog

@elrhiarhodan threw out the idea of doing a meta about Flash Back.  I accepted the challenge.

I let it happen again.  I trusted someone I shouldn’t have.  Jay Garrick.  Zoom.

dvoidblogs  asked:

Hey, I have a small VA blog and I was wondering. Would you be alright if I used some of these shots for voiceovers? It'd all be sourced back here, I just wanted to ask before doing anything.

brought it up with Mod baz and your answer: HELL FUCKIN YEAH

I’ve personally really enjoyed your dubs and the amount of sass you can get into Tinker knight’s voice so go right ahead m dude-Mod plague

gusvansants  asked:

duuude, so... i've seen quite some handmaid's tale posts on my dash and i've been paying attention to the tags but i need you to tell me is it really that good? do i need to watch it? i just need explained reasons i dont wanna start and maybe be let down can you help me out pls lol omfg

IT REALLY IS THAT GOOD

the cast and crew are really respectful of the source material and did a fantastic job moving the book into ~modern times + margaret atwood was involved in every step of making the show so all the changes have been discussed & approved with her

the cast is FANTASTIC and they love the book so much & the visuals & the worldbuilding & THE VOICEOVER   everything is just stunning imo

of course there is a lot of triggering material - just as there was in the book - so it’s not for everyone

but god , what a stunning, horrifying, beautiful show

geostelar  asked:

i just wanted to let you know that i love your voices for pat and rey! you've really captured their personalities, and its great to see more people express interest for starforce. i think your voice might work well for subaru/geo as well, but that's just a hunch of mine. either way, awesome work!

I have to disagree with you on the subaru/geo recommendation, actually. While I do think I’m capable of pulling off a good, solid “determined hero” voice, there’s this special kind of “twang” that exists in younger protagonist voices that I simply don’t think I’ve nailed down at this point in time.

When you listen to Kyle McCarley (as 9S), Ray Chase (as Noctis), or Bryce Papenbrook (as basically Every 2016 JRPG Videogame Lead Role) for example, there’s this sort of ‘crispness’ that carries through their vocals that’s hard to explain; the best way I can put it is that they sound really clear in their tone, with very little breath or rasp behind their voice. That kind of crispness conveys an immense amount of subtle confidence, and is really key to playing a character that is supposed to embody unwavering leadership and reliability.

Part of the reason I’ve landed so many “sarcastic asshole” roles might have to do with the fact that my normal relaxed tone has this ‘air of affluence’ to it, a sort of apathetic calmness that can come off as arrogant or dismissive with the right emphasis behind it. It works very well for the roles I’ve been cast in, but it doesn’t translate well when you’re trying to play the friendly, understanding hero who openly supports his sidekicks. It’s just a different character archetype that I need to get better at performing in general.

kiskisbella  asked:

What are some of your favourite artists that voice over their speed paint? Sorry if you've been asked this before... .°(ಗдಗ。)°.

I don’t think I’ve been asked this question before haha. Hm…there’s…not much to choose from. Most artists who do voiceovers usually only talk about the picture theyre drawing or doing tutorials and I don’t listen to those much…

I guess one of my biggest inspirations for voiceover speedpaints was Eloquent-Phony yeah yeah their art style is SO FUCKING COOL and their voice is so smol n cute she kinda reminds me of Mabel from Gravity Falls lmao 

That’s…really it for voiceover speedpainters tho….HOWEVER I have 2 favorite youtube artists! 

HANNAH HOFFMAN is the funniest YT artist lmao I adore her and her video setups…so good wish I came up with it. I adore her personality and she inspires me to be myself more on video

DOODLE DATE is also a hilarious channel! Their art styles are super cute and both of them are funny too! I love their art challenge videos haha! 

THATS ALL THOUGH LIKE IM ALWAYS ON THE LOOK OUT FOR MORE YOUTUBE ARTISTS i guess im just picky. I’m subscribed to more but these 3 channels are the ones that really inspire me! 

Listen

Voices by me (@hadesdancehall)
Original comic by the lovely @piyostoria! Be sure to reblog it here and check out her other works!
Music & SFX from the Undertale OST and Toby Fox

Aha, my first voiceover… and with the new mic!! I had wanted it to be Temmie since I just finished “cool leg” but her lines are really hard to master lmao. Maybe another time. I’m not really a pro at this anyway–this was mostly just for fun.

But again, please reblog the original comic and check out Piyo’s other Undertale works, including some fanlyrics (which I might also cover) and other drawings! And check out her art in general!

thetemporalduo  asked:

You should definitely do more Pat and Rey stuff more often! My friends and I really loved your take on them! :D

I would love to tackle the character more and try and find a happy medium for his voice (I’m already confident on Rey’s voice, but I feel like Pat doesn’t need to sound TOO young? Or maybe he’s just missing this small tinge of calm/softness? I’m not sure…); the problem is that I tried searching up a quote-list or images of his text in the games but couldn’t find anything.

This is where you dudes can help! Similar to my #reanquests for Trails of Cold Steel, if you can help me locate several phrases that Pat/Rey says I’d be more than happy to use them for recording the text into audio format!

Mina’s Monday Recs

Hi again! This is my second week of recs. Just to be clear, the focus will always be Olicity, but I’m always going to include any other Flarrow things too. And while most of my recs are fanfiction, I will also include other fanworks – fanvids, tag fics, gifsets, graphics – too. I hope you like what I’ve chosen this week :)

Jealous kiss prompt by absentlyabbie (Toliver) - ahhhhh, jealous!Oliver is seriously my favourite. I love seeing pre-island Oliver in fanfic, and it has always been part of my headcanon that he has shared at least one kiss with Tommy at some point. :D I love the boyishness, the inexperience on Oliver’s part, his jealousy. So beautifully done.

Hanging Pictures by hopedreamlovepray (Olicity) - I love how the author incorporates things Emily and Stephen have shared about Olicity lately - about them moving in together, the photo of them hiking, the fact that Felicity at least is getting kind of restless and misses her life in Team Arrow. This fic has a really lovely, quiet, understated sexiness to it as well, and you can feel the familiarity between them and the intimacy, too. 

Hiking is Stupid by machawicket (Olicity) - this is one of my favourite fics ever. I had no idea what Olicity-spotting was, and this was such a great fic, perfectly capturing the moment in the picture Stephen shared recently. I love the unique and fresh perspective on Olicity from an outsider’s view, especially how adorable and shy and cute they both seem. And my favourite thing is the fact that her seeing Oliver and Felicity kind of gives Gemma, the outsider looking in, a completely new perspective on romance and happiness and love, which makes this fic all the more beautiful. 

Ceci n’est pas un conte (NSFW) by susannahmccormick (Olicity) - duuuuuuude. This kind of fic sometimes makes me question everything – in the best way possible. The way this author has with words never fails to astound me. I love this fic – it’s hot and sensual and so incredibly intimate, while also kind of angsty but also, in another way, ultimately a hopeful fic. I adore road trip fics, and I love this one because I can really see Oliver getting closure, in a truly beautiful way, from all his emotional baggage.

Just Oliver (NSFW) by dettiot (Olicity) - I will never get enough of 3x20 fics, especially when they’re from Oliver’s POV. This was so hot and is one of my favourite fuckening fics (and believe me, I’ve read a lot of them, lol) ever, and I have wanted to rec it since forever. I love how Oliver is finally able to part with his masks and realises that he doesn’t need them that just being Oliver was enough.

we’re born with millions of little lights shining in our hearts (they’ll all burn out one day) by emiliebett (Olicity) - this is such a gorgeously poetic story and another road trip fic favourite of mine. I can’t get the image of Oliver and Felicity just lying on the hood of that fucking Porsche looking at the stars out of my head, and oh boy, it is a lovely image. And, of course, Oliver is his usual soppy self, hehe.

There’s also this gorgeous tag fic (NSFW) by effie214 (Olicity) - HOT DAMN THIS IS PERFECT. Also set during the road trip, this is just pure poetry, sinceriously, so lush and sensuous and gorgeous. I love the idea of Oliver being nervous about going down on Felicity and just getting lost in her. *shivers*

That’s it for fics. :D Additionally, I found this wonderful graphic by kawusia25 featuring Oliver, Barry, Laurel, Thea, Roy, Felicity and Diggle with the lyrics from Centuries by Fall Out Boy. Such a fitting song and amazing colouring. <3

Then there’s this lovely graphic by the ridiculously talented fe-li-ci-ty​ which shows Oliver Queen’s evolution into the Green Arrow. I love the different stages - from the Hood to the Arrow to al-Saheem to, finally, the Green Arrow.

In honour of Emily Bett Rickards’ birthday, there was also a fabulous tribute to some of my queen’s funniest moments by menna essam. Emily is honestly so adorable and fun-loving, not to mention absolutely beautiful, so this was a joy to watch.

Additionally, vigilantelawyers​ did a gorgeous tribute to the gorgeous Katie Cassidy. Her smile is just so infectious and lovely, and I believe this video was done to honour her award for portraying alcoholism on TV. It was so well-deserved, because it was actually one of my favourite storylines for Laurel and she did an amazing job with the material she was given. Not to mention Katie Cassidy is just a wonderful ray of sunshine. <3

Lastly, there was a really insightful and beautiful video about Oliver’s journey as a hero by PoupaKG. What an amazing homage to Oliver Queen’s heroism and character growth. And it’s set to one of my favourite songs - Flares by the Script. I am a sucker for well-chosen voiceovers, especially when they talk about Oliver’s loneliness and how he has to overcome his demons to finally become a hero. And this is what I love about Arrow as an origin story- that focus on identity. It is just beautiful to watch that journey unfold.

That’s it from me this week! :) Please try and leave a comment in a reblog or directly on AO3 or YouTube. All the above people are incredibly talented, and I’m sure they would love to hear your comments and thoughts about their work. 

Also, though I can’t guarantee anything (tumblr doesn’t always notify me when someone tags me, for some reason), by all means tag me in your work if you want me to signal boost it, either in a reblog or in my weekly rec list. Provided it’s canon (I’m just not a big fan of AUs) and features a pairing/character I like, I am all for it. :D (And if we’re mutuals and you haven’t got a response from me, you also can send me the link through fanmail.)

Recs from last week

My fics

See you next week! (I’m posting a little earlier because I’ll be busier this week, but my recs will always be around this time every week.)

Thoughts on 7x04

1. Oscar has been dead for how long? How exactly could neither of the heretics smell him rotting and yet smell blood?

2. “Sketchy Native American” stone? WOW JP. JUST WOW.

3. What a fucking surprise, the heretics will kill a Whitmore student each hour Damon doesn’t return Oscar to them and the first student they kill is a black woman.

4. Mary-Louise and Nora are basically season 3 Rebekah in two people. Like but actually.

5. I’ll admit it, the way Stefan looks at Caroline in her angel costume was pretty hot, although I think they could amp up the tension a bit more, they’re both too relaxed for me to really think it’s torturing them. Instead of making him say “torture” maybe show that more IN SCENE, Julie.

6. Valerie is SO BORING. When she talks it lulls me to sleep.

7. Oh look they torture and kill yet ANOTHER black girl.

8. Caroline and Stefan talk FREELY about how Oscar is dead and neither Mary-Louise nor Nora can hear them? People are only vampires on this show when it’s convenient to the plot and it’s sloppy as fuck.

9. VALERIE WAS NOT STEFAN’S FIRST LOVE. I DON’T CARE HOW MANY TIMES THEY MAKE HIM SAY IT, IT’S RIDICULOUS AND COMPLETELY UNBELIEVABLE.

10. Stefan and Caroline consummating their desire is actually really funny and cute and sweet and again, it’s one of those Steroline moments that I really like/love as a detail as a scene and as a moment but within the larger context it falls flat to me. What was the point of them not being able to physically touch if it was only going to last two episodes? It’s exactly like the no-humanity thing. It’s not a real obstacle, it has no weight or bearing, they could’ve done exactly what they did on the tail of their separation after the no-humanity thing, like it’s unnecessary.

11. I don’t feel at all sorry for Damon, that voiceover was annoying and it just made me LOL at the who am I without Elena Gilbert, a selfish friend, jealous brother, terrible son, because Damon, bruh, you were all of these things WITH Elena like STAHP trying to gaslight us into thinking Elena changed Damon for the better because that NEVER happened.

12. There really isn’t anything to say about Bonnie this episode because she was barely in it unless she was fixing Damon’s mess or going against all morality and all sense of self-preservation to fulfil Alaric’s wish. She was a non-presence because that’s the way JP likes her.

13. As always, I miss BonKai.

ROMANCE

Never Let Me Go
“They’re two pieces from broken puzzles that in the end fit so well together.” One of the first Sterek videos I ever saw, and still one of my favorites.

Apathy
Beautiful video capturing their moments together (along with some lovely manips).

You love him, don’t you?
How Derek fell in love with Stiles, along with a perfectly voiceover from Queer as Folk.

This Night
Darkish & Derek-centric - “I know I’m not forgiven//But I hope that I’ll be granted some peace.”

isn’t it obvious?
“Like ships in the night…” Stiles & Derek keep getting close and falling away from each other. Really adorable/sweet/sometimes sad vid.

Dangerous game
Basically a lot of Sterek sex.

but he loves you
“You’re in a car with a beautiful boy, and he won’t tell you that he loves you. But he loves you.”

Between two points (Ancient Greece AU)
The manips in this one are just really impressive.

DARK

HELL // short movie
Stiles & Derek would sell their souls to save each other. (slight Supernatural crossover - crossroads deals.)

Deep Shadow
Derek is captured by the Nogitsune, Stiles, still trapped inside, fights to save him.

superWOLF: The Origin (Part I)
Supernatural crossover, detailed story vid. Stiles is actually the Winchesters’ half brother, touched by the Nematon. Minor Sterek. Part II isn’t up yet, but this is well worth a watch.

I Captured You Once
Dark(ish)!Derek. Stiles tries to convince himself he doesn’t care about Derek, but he can’t help coming back to him again and again.

Permanent
Warning: this video will make you cry. Stiles has frontotemporal dementia. Less dark and more upsetting/tragic.

Dark horse
Derek vs. Void Stiles.

The Battle of Beacon Hills || Season 3 AU
Made before season 3 aired, so all that’s accurate is the presence of an Alpha pack. Dark for violence & angry magic!Stiles.

LIGHT/HUMOR

Boring
“Lately I’ve been getting hunger pains//When you lick your lips while you check me out.”

Abominable Snowman
Really adorable, well done movie trailer. “The one that he hates the most - and kind of hates him too - may just be the right one.”

Teen Wolf Slashy Crack
Mashup crack!vid: mostly Sterek & Scisaac with bits of Sciles & Scerek

Happy and proud
Just a bunch of Sterek-related quotes thrown together in an awesome and funny way.

Doctor Who Parody by The Hillywood Show®

I had to gifset this, because this was probably my favorite part of the parody, not just because I loved this part of “Partners in Crime,” but because the cosplayers get the expressions so well! The girl playing Donna is just amazing!

Sidenote on my bank holiday VMars rewatch after getting up to Weapons of Class Destruction:

The use of classic PI voiceover is used almost constantly - scene changes, reaction shots, intro’s, outro’s - any time she’s on screen and there’s no actual dialogue happening right that second, we hear V’s inner monologue running.

Except

When she and Logan have their moment in the episode, there is radio silence from V’s voiceover. She gets all the way to her car in silence, nothing. Scene change fade out, nothing. They start the next scene intro, no reference to it. No pithy aside. No shocked witticism. Nothing actually for the rest of the entire gd episode. They end the ep with her seeing him in class, and having a reaction shot, but again voiceover-wise NOTHING. Sonic void. Silence. She narrates her reactions to practically her every move and activity ..but when it comes to That Thing That Just Happened, she’s just mentally [white noise static]. It’s maddening, but Less really can be More in keeping an audience on the hook.

I said I was going to make a video about a certain WWE topic that will be coming up, and here it is.

I originally was gonna film myself talking but it just felt really odd doing so. So since I love editing stuff I decided to do a voiceover with visual aid and stuff… I used a very different procedure in doing a voiceover because using my laptop microphone sounded awful.

So ladies and gentleman, here is “WrestleMania Season: Don’t Be A Douchebag”.

From The Archive: Jennifer Lawrence On Hunger Games: Catching Fire
On flipping the bird at the Oscars and why Katniss is the unluckiest person in film…

Jennifer Lawrence is an interview goddess. More charming than you ever thought she could be, the Oscar winner was on very good form when Empire spoke to her in Cannes earlier this year. As The Hunger Games: Catching Fire hits cinemas this week, we thought we’d run the extended interview first seen (in part) in the November 2013 issue of Empire. This time around, you’ll hear more about sandwiches, swearing and what to call an ear infection…

You’ve won an Oscar. What’s the plan next?
I don’t know… go into television? Or do something totally unexpected. I’ll start doing voiceovers for Animal Planet. No, but seriously now, that’s something I really want to do. (Laughs)

But after the awards is there a feeling that you’re better than this blockbuster malarkey now?
You know, it’s funny how much it doesn’t change things. When you think about it, it’s just a little statue. It’s really only… a positive thing. A really nice honour, a really lovely thing to say that you’ve done, and then you move on. You keep working!

Is the sequel going to be better than the original?
I don’t know… I have not seen it yet. (Laughs) Hopefully! It’s what you hope for from any sequel - that it’s as good, or better. Nobody wants worse. I just don’t know if it’s going to be better. I really hope so!

Did you pick up any injuries this time around?
In the first one I ran into a wall, but that was during training. Once we got into filming, there were no more bizarre injuries. In this one, I went deaf for a week, and yep, I’m still having ear problems, so that’s cool. My ear pretty much covers it. It was the star of the injury show on this last one.

What caused the ear problem?
First, I had to jump into stagnant water for a stunt, which caused a double ear infection. Then I had to jump into water jets, and one jet went into my ear, making a ‘PSHYOOOOOV!’ noise, which made me deaf for a week, but I didn’t go to the doctor because I’m a genius. So I eventually got my hearing back, and now I get this tearing noise every time I yawn. I really should go back to the doctor and ask them what that means. 'Tell me, is this normal?'&#157; I’m in pain. 24/7. Help me.

How is your hair handling the dying back and forth?
Not well. (Laughs) I knew I had to cut it short because I don’t like staying brunette - I keep having to touch it up because I am actually a blonde. So I knew I wanted to go blonde and I knew I had to go short because there’s really only so much hair can handle. It’s held up for a long time, so I’m very pleased.

What advice would you have given yourself, your younger self, before you started The Hunger Games?
(Laughs) I got something to say, but I can’t…

You know, I think I’m doing everything perfectly. I think I’ve just about nailed it. 100%. And also, I know me, and I know I wouldn’t have listened, because I had a lot of people tell me what to do before and I did not listen. I don’t think I would have made an exception, not even for myself. No-one can actually give you any advice. It’s one of those day by day, every situation is different things, so there’s no way you can really prepare for anything. It’s kind of like, 'Oh well, let’s strap in, see how it goes, hope for the best…’

How much do the photocalls actually feel like The Hunger Games?
It’s just a completely different animal, all that stuff. It’s really bizarre. I should say, it’s not that bad. I don’t know why everybody acts like it’s that torturous - you are just standing there with a lot of flashing lights, so it’s not as bad as it could be. It’s not as bad as when the photos actually come out. That’s like The Hunger Games.

The photo of you flipping the bird at the Oscars could be one of the best Oscar photos of all time.
It’s so funny how much I freaked out when I realised that happened. I told my publicist, saying, 'Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God…’ and now I am like, 'That’s probably my proudest moment in my entire career.’ (Laughs)

That moment really pointed out to me how whenever people talk about not having a filter… Just how much more in control my limbs and mouths are than my actual self. It’s shocking.

What are people saying to you on the street?
Generally… people are really nice. Sometimes someone will shout, 'You’re a dirty whore!’ But I think that would happen anyway. I guess I should probably dress better. (Laughs)

Where is Katniss right now?
Where is she right now? Are you insane? I have no idea. Maybe… 'sitting here’. Oh, you mean at the point of Catching Fire? Right, okay, sure.

After The Hunger Games, Katniss has moved into a house, she’s a Victor now, and she’s trying to get her life back together. She’s suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress and her life is very different now because she goes home to the people who she knows and they don’t really know her any more. There’s a certain side of her that really only Peeta knows at the point, and she’s always felt there’s a side of her that Gayle only really knows because of her history, and now her life is so different and she’s just trying to piece it together before she finds out she has to go back.

Have you admitted to anyone you haven’t read the books yet?
Ha! And I don’t know until the day I show up on set… 'This is the day you get brought back into The Hunger Games…’ And I’m like, 'Are. You. Kidding me? Again? What do I have, a brother?’

Do you have a favourite of Francis Lawrence’s music videos?
'I’m A Slave 4 U’, Britney Spears. He was making those music videos for me. They were for my generation. It’s really funny, most of the music videos that I’ve seen and loved are his.

Jenny From The Block…
I know, there are so many nicknames.

No, the music video, the song.
Oh God, I’m such a dick. I get called Jenny From The Block… I just presumed. You know people call me J-Lo, right? You didn’t thank about that, did ya?

Jimmy Fallon and I asked Jennifer Lopez to dance once and she said no. That was also because Jimmy pussied out at the last minute and I ended up… well, it was meant to be a choreographed thing, me saying 'Dance with us!’ and then I went and did it and it turned into 'Dance with… me!’ That probably did seem really weird. She was like 'I’ll watch.’ 'Okay…’

What’s your favourite sandwich?
Philly cheesesteak. But also an Italian, which is turkey and ham.

Do you feel like The Hunger Games, with two more years to go, is taking over your life for the forseeable future?
When I signed on to the franchise, I was so prepared. I said to myself, 'Well, you’ll have fun on the first one, and the next one you’ll be miserable and it’ll seem like it’s forever and you’ll get really bored…’ I was just prepared for that. But it hasn’t happened. I get really excited when I’m shooting. I was just doing ADR and I was so excited to get back to shoot 3 and 4, because I know everybody and we’re buddies, so it’s like going back to school. Except it’s more fun than school. Much more fun.

But I really do actually enjoy them. A lot. I do. I feel like it’s going home. Other jobs make me feel strange - 'I don’t know these people!’ - and then I go back to Hunger Games and I’m like, 'Okay…’

Is there a similar feeling to Days Of Future Past?
I just freaked out over Peter Dinklage. I lost my mind. I was like, 'That’s Tyrion Lannister!’ I’d imagine myself getting on my knees and saying, 'My liege…’ He’s The Angry Elf. He’s just everything. Yeah. I freaked out over him. Actually, everybody on set was freaking out. Hugh Jackman was sunbathing, I’m blue Mystique, and then Peter Dinklage walks by on a cellphone and everyone on set says, 'Oh my God, Tyrion Lannister is talking on a cellphone!’

Are you in the blue make-up a lot, or are they going to give you a break this time?
I am blue a lot. But I get little moments here and there. It’s great because it’s the perfect kind of shooting schedule. Everybody gets time off, which with The Hunger Games movies I am definitely not used to.

And what about David O. Russell, is there a similar with-the-gang feeling there?
It feels wonderful. I love him so much, and this last film was really amazing. He’s just so incredible when he gets his imagination going. I think it was even better the second time.

Do you have a favourite Hunger Games character name?
They are all very out there. There are times when I am travelling around and I’ll see signs, and I think, 'Ah, that’s probably where that came from.’ Or I’m in the doctor’s office, and I hear about a new disease. My ear infection is called 'Claudius Templesmith’.

Have you been showing the newcomers to the franchise the ropes?
No, I’m not a jerk. 'Okay you guys, follow my lead and you’ll be fine…’ No, everybody just got stuck in. Jeffrey Wright, Jenna Malone, Sam Claflin… everybody was so nice. They all moved in really quickly. As long as you’re nice, we like you.

And Josh and I really needed a break from each other, so bringing in new blood was good for us. It was getting unhealthy. I think now the ear infection may not have been from the water - it may have been from Josh talking in my ear too much.

Thank you very much for your time, Jenny From The Block.
I hope I gave you something useable. I’ve had way too much caffeine and I’m like, 'NYEEEEAR.’ I thought you were going to think I was on crack or something. Which I might be, if this is what that feels like.
