So first UP was the q&a and here’s some things I wrote down during it. We weren’t allowed to take videos or audio but I did audio record the end bit of her doing an Australian accent hahaha. She’s literally so fucking funny she had the crowd constantly laughing.
-“I’m 27 I can have beer”
-“I play a teenager or … used to play a teenager” and she looked so sad.
-She’s so fucking excited about hugging a koala
-SHE ASKED ABIUT DREAM WORLD and everyone laughed omg
-She’s gonna miss being around the cast and crew because of the energy. -She still feels depressed about wrapping and doesn’t really know exactly what she’s doing next.
-She asked if we illegally stream pll because she was told it doesn’t air on tv here and then she’s like OOOO NEXTFLIX and everyone laughed bc our Netflix is shit here.
-“I ask troian every day what we filmed last week.”
-She doesn’t remember much about the show privileged and fans were asking a few questions about that and the OC (lmao why)
-Shes gonna set aside some time to just go to Nashville and make new music. In the next year or two.
-Someone asked her about jaria and then PEOPLE WERE SCREAMINGG JARIA. She said she loves Ian and she shut down jaria hahahaha.
-In her head the story continues for Aria and she always thinks about what Aria would be doing next.
-“I’m in Australia they can’t get mad at me” - after she nearly said a massive spoiler omg
-‘Dude’ will be released at Sundance hopefull.
-SHE GOT ASKED ABOUT DATING IAN AND SHE TIP TOED AROUND THE QUESTION and said she used to have a crush on him.
-Ashley was crying when they were digging up a dead body one time (unsure what episode she was talking about) and the bodies are supposed to only be 1 meter under the ground but that day it was like 6 feet under and they were so exhausted after digging so much.
-Lucy is going to send an ezria shirt to this girl who missed out on getting one omg.
-Lie a little better is about someone but she wouldn’t tell.
-She said she’s the closest with Janel out of all of the girls.
-“Y'all just wait and see what they did to Spencer it’s so good”
-Her fave memory from filming was shooting the pilot. She said when they put Ali’s body in the car and they were outside the church she said she looked at Ashley and shay and she knew this show was going to be big.
-She used to leave love letters for Zach Hansen in the woods bc he was her crush when she was younger.
-“She’s a bad GIRL isn’t she” about Aria having lots of boyfriends. She said she wishes she could have been more independent when she wasn’t with Ezra because she wanted to show girls you don’t need a man.
-“There’s so many lesbians in rosewood it’s great”
-“I don’t watch anything I’m in because it makes me really uncomfortable”
-The weirdest things she did on pll was holding a cow tongue, having a rat jump on her and the dead pig in the boot.
-Her favourite outfits for Aria were in season one bc they were the weirdest.
-She wasn’t allowed to keep any of Arias clothes or anything because they’re going to be kept in a warner brothers vault and can be used in other shows etc.
-Someone asked are you in any other fandoms and she said “here’s a fun fact I’ve never seen or read Harry Potter. Is there like a Netflix fan club??? I love Disney movies too”
-Her favourite lines on pll are “Spencer sluttin it up” and “bitch can see”.
She was so cute and did an Australian accent and asked what to eat here etc because food is important to her. She was so curious about fairy bread and she said she tried Vegemite and it was interesting (she hated it).
She is SOOOOO TINY I couldn’t believe it omg and she is soooo beautiful I was in shock.
I had my photo with her and it was extremely quick it was just “Hi” and take the photo quickly and go because there was like 300 people in line. They were surprised how many people were there lmao I don’t think they planned for it to be this big.
Then I had my autograph and I was like “Omg I’m low key dying right now” and she went “Awwww” and I apologized for being so nervous. She then asked me how my day was to take my mind off it I think and I fucking said “I just wanna say thank you because pretty little liars saved my life” and she was like AWWWWW and did the cutest little puppy dog face and then that was it haha.
Everything was so rushed so it was a little disappointing because her flight was delayed and they didn’t expect that many people.
I just wanted to share my experience meeting Gillian because she was so sweet and so kind and so fucking gorgeous and honestly I didn’t think I could love her more, but I do. I don’t know, but for those of you interested:
Okay so I ask her which character she would guess that I gravitate most towards and she guesses Stella, with almost no hesitation. I tell her she’s right and that Scully is a very close second and hand her my photo to sign.
She looks at the picture and says, “You know, this photo was never supposed to get out and now its this iconic Stella photo. We had this photographer on set that day, just taking these horrible photos –”
“There is no bad picture of you.” I think I interrupted her to say that, I don’t even remember, it was all blur.
She laughed, thanked me, and then said, “Oh, but there are.” Or something along those lines and just no, there are no bad photos of you.
Then I walked away, realized I paid extra for a personalized signature but forgot to hand her the sticky note they give you to write your name and had to come back around. She remembers me and asks in a genuinely concerned voice, “Oh no, you’re back?” I apologize and tell her I’m a mess and she was just so sweet about signing the photo with my name like it’s no problem at all.
I just wanted to share because she was so sweet and a little bit self-conscious and just so genuine.
Everyone is asking how I met Taylor and what happened, so here is the story! (I also can’t believe I’m writing this).
My friends and I (TORONTO SQUAD!!) planned a road trip to Detroit for the 1989 tour. I got a call from a member of Taylor Nation two days prior to the show date and was informed that there was an envelope at will call with a “secret surprise” waiting for me. My friend Lauren, who was also a “swiftmas” person, got the same phone call.
Once we got there and got our envelopes, we were ecstatic to discover that we were given meet&greet passes (this was the point where I messed up all my makeup with tears). We waited for doors to open in the POURING rain. We got soaked! Once we got in, we changed into dry clothes and we were asked to stand in a line of about 35 people. We were taken into Loft 89 (which was SO cool btw). Behind a curtain, Taylor met each group (radio contest winners) one by one. Then it was my turn…
I walk in slowly. When she sees me, she screams “MARY!!” (The people in line heard the way she screamed my name and shouted “GOALS” LOL). She pulled me in for a hug and I think I screamed her name back. She said “I’m so happy to see you! OMG all my favourite people!” and I think we went into a second hug. She said “you look gorgeous in that dress” and I told her she looked amazing too, and that I had seen her in that outfit in a photo she tweeted previously that day. She said something about contemplating whether she should’ve changed but decided not to. I told her it was a good decision because she looked great. She said “it’s so weird meeting you, I feel like I know you after watching your videos of you opening presents” and I think I mentioned about how the videos were taken in my tiny apartment. She said “but I love your apartment! I was thinking ‘Mary has a really nice apartment!’ when I saw those videos”. I mentioned the 1989 dance parties I have in my tiny apartment with the Toronto squad. I also mentioned that I live there with my boyfriend and that his last name is also Swift. She was really surprised and said “WHAT? How did that happen?” I can’t remember my reply, but I think I told her that it was Welch and she mentioned that they could be related and that she’s never met anyone else with the last name Swift. I said “He should do one of those genealogy tests!” and she said “yes!!” I’m not sure what we said afterwards, there was a moment of silence, and I stuttered and tried to change the subject but I think I mentioned that he wanted to meet her too some time (I’m so mad at myself for saying this lol I should’ve talked about something else!!) and she said “it’s bound to happen some time”. She asked how I wanted to take a picture. I told her that we have quite a height difference (I was trying to lead up to my pose suggestion lol), then she interrupted and said “well I could do this” and she started bending her knees so her head was at my level (she had to get pretty low lol). I said “I was thinking of doing, like, a headlock hug?” Without any hesitation, she pulled me in and did exactly what I wanted. We said goodbye and hugged one last time.
All I can say is that I’m over the moon and in complete awe of last night. It was a dream.
just a few snippets from this weekend. I have quite a few REALLY good pictures cough most of them are of ty cough and quite a few moderately okay ones too. sadly I didn’t get ANY good ones of amanda, even though she was one of my favourites all weekend. I think I was too enamored by her brains and beauty that I just kind of forgot my camera. hah!
I know everybody’s probably getting pretty tired of all of the Snow White and The Witch posts but…
My grandparents came round to my house with this very special package!! OMG SNOW WHITE IS SO MUCH MORE GORGEOUS IN REAL LIFE! AND THE WITCH IS SO INCREDIBLY WICKED LOOKING! Seriously, the stock photos do these beauties absolutely no justice at all, they’re definitely one of my favourite designer sets. Snow Whites face is so sweet and innocent and the way that they’re interacting in the box is breathtaking. Plus, Snow White doesn’t have messy hair or backwards feet, and the hag doesn’t have red dye on her forehead! So all my worst fears didn’t come true! They’re number 5,833 out of 6,000!
I was tagged by the lovelies @malikaesthetics and @befourjavadd to choose 9 of my favourite zayn photos and this is probably the hardest decision I ever had to make (its liking asking a mother to choose her favourite child lol) so these are 9 of my fave zayn photos from 1000s, plus that extra gif because its literally my favourite thing ever, he looks so soft and precious :)
I feel the photos, or mainly the second one needs explaining. So, Cardiff Comic Con 2014. Eve Myles was there so that obviously that meant going and seeing her. We had a cwtchy photo as normal but at the autograph table I told her if she could think of something funny i’d buy another photoshoot ticket. She warned me the “hold onto my skirt” and to buy it. So I did. And this was the result.
So you’ve been warned. If you wear a dress/skirt and want a funny photo with Eve, she may flash your arse at everyone. But it’s totally wonderful because it is possibly my fave photo ever with her despite the fact this happened in front of a room full of people.
(proper write up later but this needed to be posted)
