my love for charles is eternal


The Gentleman with the Thistle-down Hair Aesthetics (1 of 2) (2 of 2)

“I am fair, O mortals! like a dream carved in stone,
And my breast where each one in turn has bruised himself
Is made to inspire in the poet a love
As eternal and silent as matter.”

-Beauty from Les Fleurs du Mal by Charles Baudelaire

For you, my lord.

I noticed people’s obsession with Downton Abbey more in the States than I did here, when I went to do Blithe Spirit over there. The reaction from people was extreme in the street after the show. Lovely, but obsessive. I sort of popped in and out of Downton. We had a good storyline, but we were away from the house. But then came my fate in Germany, which was a shame. I’d have liked to have married Lady Edith, of course I would. It was denied me. I don’t know why.
