the cast members and their characters

anonymous asked:

but what if they killed jemma for real? :(

Sorry, for the delay, I’m trying to reply to everyone asap but it’s rough.

Anyway, just by virtue of TV laws, Jemma is not dead:

  • If Jemma was dead there would be some kind of goodbye for Elizabeth Henstridge, which there hasn’t been at all (and that’s not something they’d really keep under wraps)
  • It’s definitely not their style to kill a character like that. Also, if you recall, no “good” core cast member has died, despite the odds.
  • We’re going on a six-week hiatus now. Setting the scenario up this way makes people want to tune in six weeks from now to see what happened. You need a really deep hook for that, and apparently “finding out what happened to Jemma” is a big one that’s worked for them in the past
  • Anyway, they’ve definitely NOT killed off Jemma, and not in this fashion. (It’s not Game of Thrones.)
Lauriver and hugs

Idk the thought just occurred to me as I’ve been reblogging a lot of gifsets and such lately. Laurel and Oliver are the two characters on the show who have arguably engaged in the most hugging, at least of fellow members of the main cast, (To my knowledge the only regular Laurel never hugged was Roy, and Oliver’s never hugged Quentin; neither of them have ever hugged Malcolm in my recollection (god just the idea is giving me the shivers)) and the way in which they both typically hug is actually pretty different.

(apologies for the lack of gifs, I am not a gif-maker)

Oliver tends to move in for a hug very slowly. He opens his arms up wide and sort of lets the other person just place themself in his hold. (This is particularly true of his hugs that involve another man, which also tend to include ‘manly’ back-patting and such; look at Tommy hugs, Diggle, or Barry for examples) I think it’s very much a way of both not appearing too vulnerable while also still letting the other person know he is willing to be that open to them. For people he’s incredibly close to, he will stand there for a good long while (or at least through the fade to the next scene) It’s kind of special, it’s almost like a way of sort of savoring the moment.

Laurel does not telegraph her hugs in this same way. If she thinks someone needs one or she just wants to give them one, bam, they blink and they’re wrapped up in her arms. It can happen so unexpectedly that the other person finds themself asking “what’s this for?” even after they’ve already reciprocated (obviously that’s true of the hug with Oliver late season two, but also look at some of her hugs with Sara or Thea for examples). Because Laurel doesn’t wait for that ‘moment’ where the hug feels ‘earned’, she doesn’t make the other person ask for it either. Hugs are very much her way of both providing comfort to another person but also assurance that they are someone who matters in her life. It’s a sort of carpe diem approach to affection, in a way.

The few times Oliver breaks his pattern are when he’s in a high-stress/highly emotional situation; the few times Laurel breaks hers are when she’s being a bit playful. Usually those moments involve each other.

It’s just like, they’re so wonderfully complementary? My favorite thing is how Laurel almost never just waits for Oliver to kiss her, she’s always meeting him almost before the middle or even initiating a lot of the time, pushing up onto her tip-toes with his face cradled in her hands. Whenever Oliver holds her, he looks like he’ll never let go, that’s how long he wants it to last. And they are always like that throughout every single season.

Just…Lauriver intimacy—romantic or platonic; passionate or casual. It’s just the best.

This is your friendly reminder that it has been four years since RWBY first aired and we still have no canon knowledge of LGBT cast members.

Overwatch released something within seven months.

LoK had built the relationship for quite a bit of the series.

And RWBY? Let’s take a look, shall we?

Argument 1: We don’t  want to shoehorn in an LGBT relationship. It wouldn’t make any sense.

Rebuttal: This is why that is false:

And lets not forget:

But as we all know, none of those were shoehorned in. No, not at all.

Argument 2: You just don’t know who they are yet could easily mean they haven’t been introduced!

Rebuttal: Yes, because clearly the answer to having characters with absolutely no backstory or characterization is to add more flat, two-dimensional characters to the roster. That bullshit only barely worked with Homestuck, what makes anyone think it’s going to work well here? Instead of having a few well-rounded, interesting characters, RWBY has given s an entire laundry list of people who we only have vague notions as to who they are, what their motivations are, and why they are even relevant.

Argument 3: It hasn’t even been that long in the storyline! We only have four seasons!

Rebuttal: Four seasons in which they skipped many opportunities to deepen character dynamics, explore characterization, and give a little more backstory to the people we are supposed to care about. But they didn’t. They skipped over almost a solid year in total of time, and during that time we are just supposed to accept that the teams and other characters have gotten closer and more friendly. How are we supposed to connect to characters if we can’t even see who those characters are? We have no way of being able to properly feel empathy, or even sympathy for any character in RWBY simply because we don’t know enough about them.

“Marvel’s Inhumans” has cast its first member of the Royal Family. “Game of Thrones'” Iwan Rheon is the first actor cast in the upcoming ABC/Marvel live-action series. Rheon will play the Inhuman Maximus, also known as Maximus the Mad in the comics. 

Deadline described the character as described as “a clever and charming Inhuman that is fiercely devoted to the people of Attilan, especially his brother, the King – although he harbors an intense desire to wear the crown himself.”

anonymous asked:

can you post where you got the victoria meme list that you're doing?

I made it up, but here you go:

  • a gifset per series
  • [1] queen *wink wink*
  • [2] colours
  • [3] cast members
  • [4] other characters
  • [5] dynamics (e.g. relationships/friendships)
  • [6] emotional scenes
  • [7] *insert otp or fav friendship here* scenes
  • [8] scenery shots
  • [9] iconic queen victoria moments
  • [9] moments of another character
  • [9] outfits
  • [10] episodes

Note: I’ve added categories in prep for next series which is why the episodes have a higher number than what’s currently available. Maybe I’ll add more to this when series two airs idk?

Feel free to tag #ssammmy and #victoria meme in the first five tags if you decide to do this and I’ll reblog your gifs/edits!

A ‘Hamilton’ Star Is to Replace Josh Groban in ‘Great Comet’ (NYT) [x]:

[…] Okieriete Onaodowan, who played Hercules Mulligan and James Madison in the original Broadway cast of “Hamilton,” will succeed the pop singer Josh Groban as Pierre this summer in the musical “Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812.”

The casting choice is striking. It reflects a bet by Broadway that “Hamilton” alumni have ongoing, bankable box-office appeal (another member of the original “Hamilton” cast, Phillipa Soo, will star in an adaptation of “Amélie” opening in April). And it is the rare instance in which two black actors are leading the cast of a show that is not about black characters: Mr. Onaodowan will star opposite Denée Benton as Natasha.

Mr. Onaodowan, a son of Nigerian immigrants who was raised in New Jersey and took up acting when an injury ended his high school football career, will assume the role on July 3, the day after Mr. Groban’s departure, and has committed to staying until Sept. 4. The musical, set in 19th-century Russia, is adapted from a section of “War and Peace” in which Pierre is a wealthy but dejected member of the Moscow elite. […]

Have you ever tried drawing with just water and a broom? In case anyone missed this post, Wander was recently approved to be a character that can be drawn via water art by custodial at Disneyland! Finally got to see it in action for myself yesterday, so I took a video of the process! Huge thank you to @alicia-lvn and @extraordinarycircus for teaming together to help make this possible! And, of course, to the cast member who was kind enough to draw Wander for us. 

Well now that it has been confirmed that Sebastian will be in Season 2b I've got a PSA

DONT ship him with Clary when the big reveal happens and he possible does the thing.

DONT ship him with Alec (yes people actual ship his crusty ass with Alec)

DONT try and call him your little bean or some straight white fangirl bullshit (he’s homophobic, murderer, sexual abuser, and child killer)

However….

DONT send hate to the actor that is cast. He’s playing a role, it’s his job, and it makes no sense to equate the character with the actor. We will open said actor with open arms like any other cast member…

Who the fuck is Oscar

I’m not sure how many of my followers are RWBY fans but the latest episode got my theory sense tingling so I thought it’s high time I made a RWBY theory.

The subject of today’s theory is Oscar, a farm boy who begins hearing the voice of professor Ozpin. He is otherwise unknown, unmentioned and has never encountered or interacted with any other member of the RWBY cast, leading some to wonder “Who the fuck is this”

Who is Oscar? How is he related to the story? Why is he hearing Ozpin’s voice? Well as it turns out, all those questions have the same fucking answer

Oscar is Ozpin!

Let’s dive right in with a few minor hints. For starters, let’s look at the world Oscar inhabits, the setting he lives in back home on the range. For starters, none of the main characters are present in it, raising the question of what makes him so special, but what stands out about the world isn’t the people, but the technology. It looks like a boring, early 20th century farm house, a far fucking cry from Remnant’s world of airships, robots and transparent cellphones. This hints tell us that what we are looking at could easily be the past, and as a result we should be looking at adult characters.

Ozpin the the most likely, being one of the most important and oldest figures in the series. He’s this Remnant’s Dumbledore, so naturally he’d be the one in focus. What makes me think Oscar is Ozpin isn’t his significance though, and it’s not his dashing emerald eyes either

No, what stands out to me about Oscar is his name:

Oscar Zoroaster Phadrig Isaac Norman Henkle Emmannuel Ambroise Diggs. The full name of the Wizard of Oz

Oh, is that not enough? Let’s also deal with the facts that we only know Oscar’s first name, and Ozpin’s last name. there is no overlap here. And when did Oscar start hearing Ozpin’s voice? When he was looking in the mirror!

We never did get confirmation of Ozpin’s semblance. We never knew what made him the chessmaster he was, the headmaster of Beacon and the confidante of General Ironwood himself

Ozpin is strong, we know that, but strong doesn’t make you a leader and strategist. That power goes to those with information: the greatest weapon any leader could hold. Trust me, it’s no coincidence that the first thing Oscar heard from Ozpin was his introduction from episode 1. Ozpin became the man he is today, because his semblance allows him to send messages to himself back through time.

and THAT is where Ozpin gets his clockwork symbolism from. Clock work, listening through time. In the end, he knows what he’s doing, because he’s already heard everything play out

Original ‘Hamilton’ Star Anthony Ramos on His Final Bow, Performing Post-Election & Working With Spike Lee (Billboard):

On Sunday (Nov. 20), actor Anthony Ramos wrapped his epic run in the smash Broadway show and Lin Manuel-Miranda’s cultural juggernaut Hamilton. Since auditioning when the production was merely in its workshop phase, Ramos has enjoyed a front-row seat to theater history playing the dual roles of John Laurens and Phillip Hamilton, two characters that creator Miranda evolved and wrote with him in mind.

As one of the last original cast members to leave the production (only Jasmine Cephas-Jones and Okieriete Onaodowan from the original line-up remain), Ramos is now off to star in the highly anticipated upcoming Netflix series She’s Gotta Have It from Spike Lee.

While the show made headlines this past weekend following actor Brandon Victor Dixon’s message to vice president-elect Mike Pence, who saw the musical with his family on Friday (Nov. 18), Ramos, who spoke with Billboard before the incident, reminisces on Hamilton’s stratospheric ascent into pop culture, the mood at the Richard Rodgers Theater post-election and meeting President Barack Obama.

How does it feel to be wrapping up your time with Hamilton?

A little surreal, but it feels great, man. I don’t regret anything. You know when you leave things and sometimes you say to yourself, “Man, I wish I could have done more?” I don’t feel that way. I feel like I’ve done everything I could, and it feels great. There’s no better time for me to leave than now. I left it all out on stage at the Rogers theater and I’m ready to move on. It feels really good. Bittersweet, honestly.

As one of the last remaining cast members, you’ve experienced others’ final shows, including Lin-Manuel Miranda. What has it been like seeing everyone leave and a new cast takeover?

It feels different when I’m on-stage now because being a part of the original company, you’ve built something with a group of people for an extended amount of time. When those people start to fall off and new people replace them to maintain it, it becomes less about the building and more about the maintenance.

What I’m trying to say is that while I’m meeting new family, there’s nothing like the family that you’ve actually built the thing with and were in the trenches with. The people that are closest to your heart are always the people who were with you when you had nothing. It’s the people who were there when you were planting the seeds and they had their hands in the soil with you. We were all working for 400 dollars a week at the Public Theater and sharing a space downstairs together, so we grew to love each other. That dynamic for me as an original company member is special to me. There’s still so much love in the building, but the vibe is different.

Take me back to your very first show at the Public Theater. What was the mood like? At the time, did it feel special or just another gig?

It’s always been special, never just another gig. The only thing that was going through my mind [during that first curtain call] was, “Thank God I got through that shit. How did that happen just now?” I literally didn’t even know where I was supposed to stand in some scenes but we got through it. The first thing I said was, "Thank you, Jesus” before we did the first bow.

Describe your most memorable show.

Wow, I have to think about this. I have two. One was the show we did for President Obama. We were all so excited. Getting to perform for the leader of the free world was one of the greatest experiences of my life. The energy in the room was different. You felt a presence.

There was something unique about that night, to be on stage and let it all loose for the president. We got to perform this musical about revolution, immigrants, and our founders for the leader of our country. Afterwards he shook my hand and said, “Young man, you are extremely talented.” I was like, “Dude. Wow, bro. Thank you.” The other show was the matinee after the election.

What was that like? The country was in an interesting place that afternoon.

Obviously, there were a lot of emotions. Our company members have been pretty vocal about where we stood in this election. We had a meeting before the matinee and there were tears. We shared words and checked in with each other. There was a lot of anger and frustration. The one conclusion we came to was that you don’t answer anger with more anger. You answer anger with love. You answer anger with selflessness. The answer to anger is always the opposite thing of anger.

This election has sparked a new level of attentiveness and awareness not only in the United States, but in the world. What we were talking about was that we’re blessed to do this show, and we can’t take it for granted. People are coming to see this show for a little piece of hope, and we try to be aware that this isn’t just a show. For the people coming into this theater each night, their lives are vulnerable, fragile and precious, and we have to handle with care. Not only of the people in the theater, but who we come in contact with in person and in life, period. We took all of that into that matinee, which became one of my most memorable performances.

If you would have told me my most memorable performance would have happened two years into my run, I would have been like, “Yeah, right,” but I’d say it was even more special than opening night. The audience is always a part of the show but the audience was never more a part of the show than that day. The most special moment for me in my entire Hamilton run was the moment I came downstage and turned to the three guys and sang, “Raise a glass to freedom, something they can never take away no matter what they tell you” and the audience roared at that line and clapped. That had never happened before. That right there was the moment I said, “Everything’s going to be alright and we’re all in this together, no matter who the president is, and we can never forget that.”

Unlike any other show, Hamilton has had the most incredible array of luminaries and icons coming to experience it. Beyond President Obama, who are some visitors who have stood out to you?

Laurence Fishburne hugged me like he knew me forever. I remember when we were at the Public Theater, Busta Rhymes gave us a 30-minute speech about how our show motivated him and made him rethink what he wants his next album to be like. That was an incredible moment. And Marc Anthony! I’d blast his salsa albums with my mom. He gave me a huge hug and said, “Kid, I’m so proud of you.” That moment was particularly special to me. I think those moments all stood out to me the most.

read the rest of this great interview here!

person: julie plec is a creative genius!!

me, an intellectual: julie plec has failed to grasp basic concepts such as diversity, characterisation bc instead of developing a character she retcons them to the point that they’re unrecognisable, she allows misogynistic and rather racist material to be included, the way she treats certain cast members *cough* kat *cough*, she panders to specific fans but disrespects most of them, she pretty much ruined the show by focusing more so on romantic relationships than on familiar and platonic ones.

i already know that there’s going to be discourse about who the “real” third member of the new trilogy trio is – poe or kelly marie tran’s character – to which i would say… it’s time to kill the trio motif. in fact, we should have killed it in the original trio when lando was introduced. a case could even be made for chewbacca and bb-8. either way there are four young heroes in this trilogy and i love every one of them

Thank you to the directors, writers and producers of Skam. Without you we literally wouldn’t have witnessed how amazingly the cast on Skam is. Yall are geniuses, fucking GENIUSES!!!!!

a) u find a way to create a better love story in 8 episodes than a show lasting 5 seasons

b) YOU PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT IS RELEVANT AND INFORM THE UNINFORMED YOUTH

c) you run character instgram accounts, no other show does something like that and it’s beautiful, it makes Isak and Jonas…ect realistic

d) you hire cast members that fit the characters ages, I’m TIRED of seeing a 24 year old playing a 17 year old

e) you make the show irl time and it’s again, makes everything so much more realistic

f) the characters are not rich with perfect families and a new outfit every time we see them, THEY REWEAR CLOTHING AND HAVE ISSUES WITH THEIR PARENTS, v realistic

g) EVERYTHING!! IS!! SO!! DAMN!!! REALISTIC!!!

Breasts are an important part of Espionage

So my boyfriend is the DM of a campaign that we are only 3 sessions in. Our dwarven rogue told us his tragic past and that he must kill the lord of this town tonight in revenge for his parents. All our characters present are chaotic neutral so we all agreed to help, plus my monk can cast pass without trace so we easily got in. Before we left, we planned out disguises in case we were seen so we could slip away. My monk chose to look like a french maid, making the DM sigh and roll his eyes.

DM: As you are approaching the center of the castle, you come upon some french doors which you know lead to the lord’s chambers.
Me: So I was smart to dress like a french maid!!

The other party members laughed.

DM: What? No. The doors aren’t french, that’s just the name of the style of double doors-
Me: Ahem! *gesturing to my breasts and making an opening motion of doors over them, looking directly at the DM* You were SAYING???

Everyone started cracking up and my friend (the bard) fist-bumped me. My boyfriend sighed in defeat, suppressing laughter, and reluctantly high-fived me.
