“At the very beginning of my career, I had a teacher whose name was Vinnette Carroll; she directed a number of Broadway shows. She kept saying to me, “You know the problem with beautiful women? They tend to rely on their beauty.” And I said, How wrong she is! I never think of myself as being beautiful. I thought, What are you talking about? I work so hard. And I did. But I learned from her how important it is to learn your craft. When all else fails, you will land on that, and that alone.”

“One of the primary reasons I became a producer is because I wanted to create the world that I wanted to see on TV,” [Daniel Dae] Kim said, who is an executive producer on the series [The Good Doctor] along with “House” creator David Shore. “So often as actors, we’re subject to the roles that we’re offered or auditioning for, but one role in one show is a small piece of a larger puzzle. It’s satisfying to me to be able to create worlds from the ground up. I can tell the stories I want to tell, I can populate them with the kind of people I would like to be telling them, and thematically it’s nice to be able to choose those stories. It’s also nice to be a job creator.” (x)
Fraggle Rock publicity images. No special reason, just something I remember well from when I was a kid.
I still think the show had a brilliant, positive concept. But that was Jim Henson, eh.
I remember I found the Gorgs very scary, in their dark, overgrown garden. There was a similar bit of shadowy no man’s land behind the outhouse in my grandparents’ garden, no way I was going to venture out there, not alone, not with friends.
