“There have been things that have ended that have torn through me like a death. If it’s something I have grown so close to, when it’s over it hurts, you know. I did a play once and I couldn’t talk about it for about three years without crying because it was like a death to me when it ended. That’s kind of what it’s like with these characters. It’s almost like getting a best friend and you learn everything about them and you learn how they work and you live with them and then this part of you dies and they go away.” - Dane DeHaan
∟ Gwen Stacy - “It’s easy to feel hopeful on a beautiful day like today, but there will be dark days ahead of us too. There will be days where you feel all alone, and that’s when hope is needed most. No matter how buried it gets, or how lost you feel, you must promise me that you will hold on to hope. Keep it alive. We have to be greater than what we suffer. My wish for you is to become hope; people need that. And even if we fail, what better way is there to live? As we look around here today, at all of the people who helped make us who we are, I know it feels like we’re saying goodbye, but we will carry a piece of each other into everything that we do next, to remind us of who we are, and of who we’re meant to be. ”
With Andrew and Emma, we screen tested them together, and it was obvious. There was a sense of vibe and chemistry. Emma had this great experience with comedy, and Andrew had such emotional depth from drama, and they complemented each other perfectly. It’s just magic.
