Her voice was always silk in his mind, she was always his most favorite person. While he ventured the world for his job, he never truly saw it. She made him see it. He had never met a girl like her, well, mostly because if he ever did, they would fangirl or want him for his fame or money. She was different partially because she didn’t know about these things. Although she would have never cared if she did.
That was why he admired her so much. She was precious, she was strong. Her bravery and kinds inspired him, she was still his muse. She always would be. Beautiful Rosa, he thought. A nerdy smile would plaster his lips whenever she penetrated his thoughts. He never had problems expressing how he really felt about her, while she struggled to learn how to love someone that way. He was patient. She was grateful for it.
Moreover when she found the truth of who he was, she still did not care. She only cared for him. He only cared for her. He may have been a star that shone very brightly on the television, but she was his star. And his star shone everyday in his eyes.

put you right in the room.
Ok, not ~strictly~
Daveed, but he cofounded BARS, so I’m
rolling with it. Because trust me when I
say watching this is 100% worth your time. They talk poetry, acting,
writing, race, Hollywood, growing up in adversity, bridging the cultural gap,
thriving while doing it, and so much more. You’ll practically want to take
notes because a simple conversation between these two will take you to school. It’s an absolute masterclass in artistry. Please
watch, please absorb, please learn.
Lemon Andersen: “So, I had a really crazy experience over the
last 3 years in Hollywood. And I found myself around superior talents, young talents, people of color, who don’t have
writers. And it takes a village; it really does, man. You
gotta understand, man; you gotta step back and say, ‘How can I fix the problem?’
And I don’t want anybody crying on me no more because they don’t have a job,
you know? And they have the skill to do
it but no one’s writing for them because they shouldn’t be writing for them. You know? Because you don’t know how to write for that talent; you
don’t know what to do with that. You
don’t know how to take that great
actor and give them the quality
material that’s gonna make their work stand out. Cause you gotta go deep in a
soul that you have no idea how to connect to. And that’s the majority of
Hollywood right now. And so I quit.”
Rafael Casal: “That was a big moment for me for the last couple
of years in LA. I was like, ‘Wow, all my friends are mostly all people of
color, they’re all actors, and they can’t get any fucking work.’ And you’ll see
these posts that are like, ‘Oh, we’re looking for scripts!’ You’re like, ‘So
who’s writing them?’ Who’s writing for this friend of mine to not go out for
Third Dude In The Back and get to have anything worth auditioning for.”
Lemon: “Yeah, I’m ready to start lifting these guys off the page;
that’s it for me. I’m into the
job-creating business…….. Understand that every role you write, somebody
smiles. You’ve gotten someone closer to health benefits. You’ve gotten someone
closer to, like, a career, a pension. This is real; look, let’s call a spade a
spade. We are in show business and if
you can step up and soak up information and be vulnerable to these producers,
cause they own this business, and say, ‘Ok,
how can I help you fix the problem? Since
you can’t fix it yourself. And you shouldn’t have to fix it because it’s not
your world; it’s my world and they are my world. So teach me how to do
this well.’ And they’ll do it. You know, you find the right crop of people,
take your baby steps in; this is what it’s been like for the last 6 months. You
know, I work in television now as a writer. And there are so many roles that we’re writing and we’re gonna make so many
people happy. And it’s just a one scene for this person, this actor, and then,
you know, it’s a series for this actor for the next 2 or 3 years, you know? And
eventually if you write it well enough, then you launch someone’s career and
you can knock on their door and say, “I need you to help me fund these programs
