Films in which Luke Evans cries

@dicrapriking asked about any films that Luke cries in. I had to think about it a bit, but it turns out there are a few!

Cowards and Monsters

A lovely, short film about infidelity that you can watch here.

Very weird crying. Watch here.

By far the best crying scene. Just look at him!

Although he doesn’t cry in The Girl on the Train, as far as I remember, he seems to be on the verge of tears in many of his scenes.

I think that’s it! All in all, I’d say he’s a beautiful crier!


Shakespeare’s words that failed to catch on - QI: Immortal Bard - Shakespeare Unlocked - BBC Two.

Real talk tbh, I feel like Bard – at his core – is an individual who just simply shines because of who he is. The reason that he does things is entirely selfless and has no greedy undertones. And the fact that he is so sympathetic to the plight of others that just makes me think that he was one of the greatest men during the Third Age.


If you wannabe my lover, you gotta get with my friends

I imagine Thranduil and Loki having a bunch of code words for “hot guy/lady”, “cool song” or “another drink” when they go partying because they are above and beyond these not-fabulous mortals. They also order super fancy impossible-to-make drinks that go with their outfit.

And meanwhile Bard is like, whatever, just keep him away from the children

Such Cuties 😍😘


John Clare, Penny dreadful S02E09 “And hell itself my only foe”

I lost the love of heaven ~ John Clare (1793 - 1864)

I lost the love of heaven above,

I spurned the lust of earth below,

I felt the sweets of fancied love,

And hell itself my only foe.

I lost earth’s joys, but felt the glow

Of heaven’s flame abound in me,

Till loveliness and I did grow

The bard of immortality.

I loved, but woman fell away;

I hid me from her faded flame.

I snatched the sun’s eternal ray

And wrote till earth was but a name.

In every language upon earth,

On every shore, o'er every sea,

I gave my name immortal birth

And kept my spirit with the free.
