My thoughts on history, music, running, architecture, grammar, Doctor Who, and--of course--Firefly.
The line by poet Dylan Thomas (and recited by Michael Caine in the trailer for Interstellar), “do not go gentle into that good night,” reminds me of my favorite line from film and television.
"No greater sacrifice has ever been asked of a people, but I ask you, now, to step forward one last time, one last battle, to hold the line against the night.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KbBRrK9Q-rw
Gives me shivers listening to it again.
I love playing Brienne of Tarth because, when I was growing up, I didn’t really see people on television that I felt that I could identify with. Women all looked kind of a particular way, women characters that were popular, anyway. And when I had the opportunity to play this part, it made me explore the parts of myself I had hidden from. I had very long hair. I wanted to look very feminine, really tall. (x)
