diego luna appreciation week: day one

(favorite) role - captain cassian andor

“He’s a complicated man, he’s a man full of contradictions. He’s an intelligence officer, a spy for the rebellion, and spies are weird, you know? They’re not allowed to engage emotionally, they’re always thinking something else. They’re saying one thing but thinking about another. It’s interesting to play this role because it’s very different from everything I’ve done and definitely very different from me. I can’t stop speaking, and this guy is the opposite. He’s quiet, he’s all about listening, strategy or what I can get from this, and he’s in charge of a very important mission, so there’s a heavy weight on his shoulders.”

This has been storytime with Loki-thou-art-drunk. Original myth taken from the Norse Prose and Poetic Eddas.

So, what I tried to convey with this photoset is that the centuries-old myth of Loki and the fishing net is essentially the same story told in Marvel’s Avengers, with the scattered heroes being the separate strings at Loki’s disposal and the final assembled team the net he makes of them.

Like a cat playing with its food, the traditional trickster often feels the need to test, prod, and tinker—a habit that results in his downfall as frequently as it results in his success. While he has the upper hand, Loki idly plays with the only thing with the potential to stop him—in myth, the string; in the MCU, the Avengers themselves—and in doing so inadvertently weaves them into something with the strength and cohesion to thwart him.

For all Nick Fury’s efforts throughout the Marvel films, he could never get the team together and working as a unit. It took Loki and his overthought plans to undermine them to bring them together. It was Loki who assembled the Avengers, subsequently bringing about his own capture…

Not a great plan.

I feel like I’ve really earnt my stripes – I feel ready to play a lead, I would just love to prove I’m good enough to carry a project. But like any actor I berate myself on a day-to-day basis – I’m not doing well enough, or I didn’t get that role, or I haven’t done enough theatre… I’m shit, I’m shit, I’m crap, I’m crap… Oh, God… you know. It is important to stop and look and think how far I have come. We all need some TLC and to pat ourselves on the back from time to time.
