You saw GotG 2? What did you think of Mantis' character? I felt like they made her into the stereotypical submissive Asian woman...
I haven’t thought about it but I will say in the back of my mind I was like “this is probs problematic in some way but I’m too lazy and having too much of a good time to think about it.” I know that sounds bad, but I get so exhausted thinking about ALL OF MY MEDIA critically all of the time and I wasn’t offended by it enough to form a critique of her lol. But I’m sure there have been think pieces about it that make great points and it wouldn’t be inaccurate to say it’s most likely coming from a stereotypical place.
Robert was the true steel. Stannis is pure iron, black and hard and strong, yes, but brittle, the way iron gets. He’ll break before he bends. And Renly, that one, he’s copper, bright and shiny, pretty to look at but not worth all that much at the end of the day.
Cregan: I see what you are, Snow. Half a wolf and half a wildling, baseborn get of a traitor and a whore. You would deliver a highborn maid to the bed of some stinking savage. Did you sample her yourself first? If you mean to kill me, do it and be damned for a kinslayer. Stark and Karstark are one blood.
She sleeps with fear in her soul. She is full of terror and paranoia and insecurity. She hides it with stillness. She does not move much and that’s been a real challenge for me. I fidget. She’s like a cobra, she’s a snake just waiting and waiting… the hard thing is it’s freezing where we film [in Belfast] in a shipyard for five months a year and I’m there in a silk dress trying to be totally still.
“You can’t take anything for granted for a second otherwise you trip up. More than anything, I believe life is all about timing. I know certainly every situation in my life has been like "why now?” and it’s a test or a beautiful moment. That’s why life is so gorgeous.“
