A celebration of the wonder that is Jillian Holtzmann. A gay actress playing a character who is probably gay in a big summer action comedy, kicking ass with everyone else. And one of the most important aspects of her character: she’s a brilliant geek who made all their badass toys. She’s a nerd who dances in the street when she sees something cool. She gets overexcited while explaining how their new weapons work because SCIENCE IS AMAZING OMG. And she’s artistic! From the design of the weapons, to revamping the hearse, to choosing the team’s logo, she is the one who made sure they looked good while they saved New York.
Jillian Holtzmann is the personification of Tumblr/fandom, and I love her to bits.
Ghostbusters is an all-around fun movie, and well worth seeing for a lot of reasons, but Jillian Holtzmann is far and away my favorite part of the whole thing.
