I had a joy playing opposite to Gal and getting a chance to fall in love with her. Patty gave me an objective which was to flirt, make her laugh. Tumble, breathe heavily like you’re doing something physical. And I said that sounds like a plan. And, you know, Gal’s my pal. So we just goofed around and had a good time. We’re pals!
We dedicated our whole day to it. The first half of the day was just the camera movements. And then we got into, it was, as you know, it’s one take, so we had to get everything right. Each attempt that we had at it. And it’s incredibly tricky because it’s not like a long tracking shot with two people speaking; it’s a long tracking shot with people punching. If one punch doesn’t land, it no longer works. It ceases to work as a scene. So I think we did it 12 times. I think three of them, we made it all the way through to the end. And one of them was the one in the show, which is kind of almost flawless. I mean, it’s very hard to find holes in that. - Charlie Cox on Cut-Man Hallway Fight
If you had a daughter, what would be the number one life lesson you’d want her to know?
I would want her to know that she is a force to be reckoned with and never to underestimate her own power. Sometimes, particularly young girls feel like their voice doesn’t matter, and what they have to say doesn’t really matter, and I think I would want her to know that it does.
I was born a natural born empath as was my mom. When you tell people what it is, they often first talk about how cool it is and how you could see if someone likes you or how you can tell if someone is lying to you. However, those points are not necessarily true and being an empath can truly be a double-edged sword. Us empaths are often over-sensitive to certain stimuli and it can be 100% confusing. Growing up, I wish I had known some methods to help.
So here are some tips for Empaths:
Avoid crowds when possible. Tons of people and their influx of emotions will surge your senses.
Look up movie summaries (if you are okay with potential spoilers) before going to see any to know if there is any tragedy or gore.
Use x-kit’s blacklist function if news of tragedy that circulates through tumblr becomes too much.
Mindless games are a great distraction and way to occupy your mind over something else
Meditation helps with sorting out which emotions are yours and which are not.
Try this grounding ritual: Visualize a light surrounding you. It’s keeping you in and everything out but comfortable. Then imagine roots coming out of you. Imagine them going into the ground and holding place. Feel how strong the roots are with holding you to the ground. No wind or force can easily push you over.
Learn how to block out emotions. I imagine a bubble around me when I go out. Everyone has different methods.
Keep a journal or at least write somewhere to help you sort things out or to reference to later
REMEMBER: IT IS NOT YOUR RESPONSIBILITY\YOU ARE NOT OBLIGATED TO HELP EVERYONE. IT IS LITERALLY IMPOSSIBLE and can be detrimental to your health
I know that many of you are losing hope, but our battle is not over yet. I understand some days is hard to still have hope, but so far we have achieved so much.
Yesterday was supposed to be all about OITNB and instead the world was still talking about us, about Sense8 and about our movement. Not to mention that we dropped their stocks by 6% instead of them going up.
Netflix is so afraid that at this point they are trying to shut us down any way possible. You know what that means, right? It means they realised that WE hold the power.
They realised also that we are aware of having this power. CEO Reed Hastings even had to change his email recently because he has been bombarded with complaints. Keep Emailing and keep complaining BUT ESPECIALLY DEMAND FOR SENSE8′S RIGHTS TO BE RELEASED TO ITS WRITERS AND CREATORS.
This may be our only chance to SAVE Sense8.
So grab a snack and a drink, blast What’s Going On:
# get an entire episode dedicated to them right after an unanswered proposal because of a car accident # “I asked her to marry me and a truck came out of nowhere” # with one of the characters in a coma while pregnant # the two of them singing that they mean the world to each other # and the one who is almost dying singing “when you’re on your own, I’ll send you a sign just so you know that I am me, the universe and you” # nope, your OTP will never…
