Human beings are not born once and for all on the day their mothers give birth to them…life obliges them over and over again to give birth to themselves. —Gabriel García Márquez (via ismiledsweetly)
The Evil Queen is a very complex, delicious, fun character to play. I love the joy she feels when threatening/intimidating others — too fun. She’s extremely unapologetic and yet still seeks to grow into a better human being. That is what I love most about her.

People don’t like her because it’s the making of her, right now. When she, sometime soon in the future, becomes this person that she’s been kind of building up to, for the past three seasons, now four, then people will really begin to root for her. I think even the audience doesn’t realize she’s such a dark horse. If she acted badass and tried to kill everyone there, she would be dead by now! She’s so intelligent, and I can’t stress that enough. Courtesy is a lady’s armor. She’s using her courtesy to deceive people, and she’s using her former self as a facade, and it works so much to her advantage, because people still think she’s this naive, vulnerable, little girl, and she’s really not. She knows exactly what she’s doing. She knows what game she’s playing! And no one else does. And she’s learned from the best — Cersei, Margaery, Tyrion, Littlefinger, even Joffrey. She’s learned so much from these people, and they don’t even realize it. They’re unwittingly feeding her to become this great kind of manipulator. King’s Landing can either make or break a person, and in Sansa’s case, it’s making her. —Sophie Turner, in response to Sansa hate (x)

Q: "Stana, the facial expressions you do on "Castle" - are those your own or written in the script?
A: “The producers have electric shock nodes attached to my face to make it do what they want.” (x)
It’s that thing when you’re with someone and you love them and they know it and they love you and you know it but it’s a party and you’re both talking to other people and you’re laughing and shining and you look across the room and catch each other’s eyes. But not because you’re possessive, or it’s precisely sexual, but because that is your person in this life and it’s funny and sad but only because this life will end and it’s this secret world that exists right there. In public. Unnoticed. That no one else knows about. It’s sort of like how they say that other dimensions exist all around us but we don’t have the ability to perceive them. That’s what I want out of a relationship. Or just life, I guess. —Frances Ha (2012)
