I think sometimes people forget how vital comedy can be. It isn’t just good for a laugh, it can cure sadness, anxiety, depression, and in my case, save lives. Like over the summer, I was so violently depressed that I went for days without getting out of bed but then I started watching The Office. This sounds silly, but it gave me a reason to get up in the morning. It gave me motivation to get out of bed and go to my jobs. Beyond that, it taught me a lot about relationships and what healthy relationships were vs unhealthy, all while making me laugh. It literally lifted me out of one of the worst times of my life emotionally, and by the end of watching it, I didn’t feel so hopeless anymore. This has happened to me multiple times with different comedians, TV shows, and movies. Comedy has saved me time and time again just when I start feeling bleak about the world. Comedy is so, so important. It’s beautiful.
As you know, today I was at the Paris Manga for Allison Mack and we have the chance to ask her a few questions about her, her years as Chloe Sullivan and her futur :
- She’s done with SV for good
- She’s still talks with Glover & will be at Michael’s podcast in november
- If she could choose a power instead of the healing she had it would be the FLYYY
- She was afraid to be dead (for good) during the five first seasons
- She would loooove to play more of Shakespeare
- Season 4 was pretty lame for Chloe because she’s worked for the Luthors and she had a unrequited love for Clark…
- A set where she feels like home : The Daily Planet
- Oliver Queen is Chloe’s soulmate
For now that all I have in mind. She was PERFECT. Her smile was the brightest, she was kind and I asked her to sing a song for us and daaaamn her voice 😍😍😍😍😱😱😱 she never broke the eyes contact with me during the song, it was PERFEEEECT
Al Miles: Michael, do you guys ever
rehearse prior? Michael Rosenbaum: You know, sometimes when John
comes in I’m half way through the make-up he’ll sit there and we’ll
just listen to music and bounce the lines back and forth a little
bit. Then we’ll get inside and play a little bit. But I think now,
to keep it more fresh, we play more on camera… Al Miles:
Right. Michael Rosenbaum: …as opposed to rehearse. But, you
know, we definetly go over it. We try to know our lines inside out
and have fun with it.
John Glover: Well, we did the prison
stuff first and it was very difficult for me to be simple, just to
kind of stand still and not do anything. I kept wanting to
complicate everything, as I seem to do, I guess, in my life and my
work. But to play Tom, they kept saying, ‘No you’re doing too much.
You’re doing too much.’ And the more I watched him I saw how kind of
pure his stuff is.
