Nearly two years ago, I was gifted with the opportunity to work on my first feature film alongside rising Canadian talent like the fine folks pictured here.
Today, @almostadultsmovie is available on 24 VOD platforms around the globe, and it’s all a bit surreal. I feel like a monumentally different actor (and person) than the girl who fumbled around that set, but I am also extremely grateful for what I learned from being in this movie. I’m very proud of everyone involved, and I hope you’ll all enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed being a part of it. by natvanlis

“I think what I have learned from working on Moonlight, you see what happens in persecution. What I was so grateful about and having the opportunity was playing a gentleman who saw a young man folding into himself as a result of the persecution of his community and taking that opportunity to uplift him and tell him he mattered, that he was OK. And accept him. I hope that we do a better job of that. 

We kind of get caught up in the minutiae and the details that make us all different. I think there’s two ways of seeing that. There’s an opportunity to see the texture of that person, the characteristics that make them unique, and then there’s the opportunity to go to war about it. And to say that that person is different than me and I don’t like you, so let’s battle. My mother is an ordained minister. I’m a Muslim. She didn’t do backflips when I called her to tell her I converted 17 years ago. You put things to the side and I’m able to see her and she’s able to see me. We love each other. The love has grown. And that stuff is minutiae. It’s not that important.”

Mahershala Ali talks about persecution and religious freedom at the Screen Actors Guild Awards last night, where he won Best Male Actor in a Supporting Role for his work in Moonlight. (via Us Weekly)

anonymous asked:

A pentagrams associated with good energy or bad? I've only know them to be associated with bad, but that is what I've learned from movies, tv, and propaganda.

Hello there friend.

Pentagrams are a symbol of protection and force of good, as well as a representation of elements. There is nothing bad about them, unfortunately they have just been used by those who don’t understand their meaning in order to incite fear of ‘occult’.

With luck, Magpie.

beaglebitch said (about Tom Hiddleston movies) :

What I have learned from watching his recent work:

  • When kissing, he leads with his nose.
  • He also grabs women’s faces when kissing.
  • Once in for a good makeout session, go for a boob.
  • He likes lifting women while kissing them.
  • Snake hips aren’t just a dance move.

  This means that if it was Loki, it would also like this? I like. :)
