I was at university, playing Salieri in Peter Shaffer’s play Amadeus, when my dad told me, ‘You’re better than I ever was or will be. You’ll have a good time doing this. I’m going to support you’. It was a huge thing for a father to say to his son. It was very humbling and moving. One of the reasons I get out of bed in the morning and try to do my best each day is to make them proud.
I wanna talk about this for a second. When I was making this gif set, my heart couldn’t help but melt.
Do you see that? He’s shy! He had something, he knew he had something to say to Emma. That he knew what it was like, to lose hope. But when he got to her, he saw her looking at him, and he got shy. Something was happening, and he knew he was developing feelings for her, something he didn’t think he would ever be able to do again for someone. She was changing him, and he knew it. Just look how many times he looks down and then up to her eyes, like he couldn’t handle it, the feelings she was giving him. I don’t know if any of this makes sense to you guys, but I honestly just love this.

“I know things have been difficult lately and I’m sorry about that. I think I know what you’re feeling. Ever since you were a little boy, you’ve been living with so many unresolved things. Well, take it from an old man. Those things send us down a road… they make us who we are. And if anyone’s destined for greatness, it’s you, son. You owe the world your gifts. You just have to figure out how to use them and know that wherever they take you, we’ll always be here. So, come on home, Peter. You’re my hero… and I love you!”
