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.


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.

Jon: My name is Snow.

Cregen: Bastard.

Jon: Guilty. Of that at the least.

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.

She read and re-read the letter. But there it was. They call it the Red Wedding. And now Lady Catelyn Stark and her son, the heir to the Stark family were both dead.

She didn’t know the Starks well. She had met Catelyn and Ned only once…briefly. She set the letter down and tucked a strand of hair behind her ear.

She stood and walked over to the window and looked outside. It seemed that Highgarden was the only safe place in the world right now. Everything was falling apart.
