So a friend of mine in instagram and I were having this conversation of how the vAs are so precious and a gift to us fans so here’s a little tribute for them. Keep up the great work and we will always support and love you guys~ 😘
Reblog this if you care about the Voltron creators and people behind the screens more than ships.
Reblog this if you care about the Voltron creators, VA’s, artists, etc. more than you do any stupid fictional ship in the show no matter what it is. I know there are lots of good people in this fandom so let’s, let the good out shine the bad.
For the record this isn’t the first time Tyler has said this. In his Let’s Voltron interview a while back he said the same thing, that he has the same concerns as us re: fat jokes and such, and he will “never just let [Hunk] fall flat”
That one interview video where Tyler Labine and Bex Taylor-Klaus spent the entire first minute and a half talking about food pretty much sums up out how I would interpret Hunk and Pidge having a conversation to pass time tbh
The food thing becoming such a huge part of my character–Initially I was like, “Oh great, I’m playing another fat character, and we’re gonna make some fat jokes.” And everyone was like, “No, no, no. He’s not fat, he’s a gourmand.” … He’s a gourmand who enjoys the culinary world, from soup to nuts.
And once I started throwing out a little bit of my own, sort of, culinary flourishes into some of the dialogue we had, I could see that Lauren [Montgomery] and Joaquim [Dos Santos] were kinda like, “Oh, you can wrap your mouth around some of these words.” And they started to write more and more kinda little foodie-oriented dialogue for me. …
He’s like a food savant. He literally–Two things in this world: mechanics and food. And I guess, also we’ve been discussing that he’s quite good with people. Food gets to the heart, well the stomach of people.
There is some out-of-character behavior that happens this season, trying to figure out who Lotor is. There’s so many things we can’t–so, so many things I’d love to tell you, but we can’t. But Lotor is probably, in my opinion, one of the most complex villains I’ve ever seen on tv… He is complicated. There are some crazy things, really well written. Really superbly, superbly performed by AJ [LoCascio]. And there’s a lot of deception–we’ll put it that way–that kind of permeates our team. And so people get– Yea, everybody gets thrown for a loop by Lotor.
