There’s something to say about actors who lose an extreme amount of weight to play a role in a film. To become so thin that they look emaciated and close to dying, to be weak and irritable from the lack of food, and loosing whatever previous muscle tone they once had indicates an unflaggible dedication to their craft. To put their bodies on the line for the sake of realism so that we filmgoers can watch their deteroration happen before our eyes on the big screen and know that it’s quite possibly the only non artificial thing in the entire film shows a true passion for their art.

The Librarians 3x10 “And The Wrath of Chaos.”

The Librarians two front battle comes to a head when the library is simultaneously infiltrated by DOSA and Apep. Flynn, Baird, Stone Cassandra, Ezekiel and Jenkins must all put aside their differences to save the Library, the world and themselves.

❮Sir, may I introduce this human named Jake?❯

❮I said I need you. Now stand to attention and listen to my -❯

❮Sir, this is Jake. My prince.❯

That stopped Galuit in mid-yell. The guards all stared incredulously at Prince Jake. Then at me. Then at Marco and Cassie, as if they might be able to explain.

❮Every warrior must have a prince to follow, and the princes must obey the People,❯ I said.

Galuit looked like he was seriously considering using his old tail on me. But then he nodded stiffly. ❮Just so, Aristh. No one is a law unto themselves. We each must serve.❯

Galuit turned to speak to Prince Jake. ❮I have need of you to save this planet from the Yeerks. Will you -❯

❮Yes,❯ Prince Jake said.

❮You say yes without knowing what I’m asking.❯

❮Will it save the Leerans? Will it keep them free? And most of all, will it hurt the Yeerks?❯

❮Yes to all three. Especially the last. If we save Leera it may turn the tide of the war against the Yeerks.❯

❮Then we’ll do it.❯

Galuit seemed surprised. Maybe even impressed. In private thought-speak he said to me, ❮I have known worse princes than this one.❯
