Tyrion appreciation week » Day 1: favourite season → season 4

Les Miz is a long show. And it was a long time between my cues. One night a couple of months into the Palace run, I got really tired of listening to the score. [..] After the barricade scene this one particular night, I went back to my dressing room, took off my wig, my costume, my microphone, and my contacts. I turned off the Tannoy (the intercom), stuck some gum in my mouth, put my glasses on, lit a cigarette, and began reading the Madonna issue of Interview magazine. I was sitting there in my long johns because it was wintertime and the Palace Theatre was freezing. Just as I began thinking, “I wonder where they are…”, Roger Allam burst open my dressing room door with his foot.
“LuPone!”
“Whaaaat?”
“You’re on!”
“Holy Shit!”
My wig, my costume, and I flew down three flights of stairs. By the time I hit the bottom step, I was fully dressed. (No contacts, no mike, no time). The ghost of Fantine is supposed to make an entrance in the closing minutes of the show as Jean Valjean is dying, but I had left Colm Wilkinson onstage alone, dead, sitting in a chair, head listing to the right, barely breathing - rnough to keep him alive - for sixteen bars of music.
Yeah, I royally fucked up.

Still my favorite story from the Lord of the Rings set: Viggo Mortensen bonded so much with the horse he rode in the movies that after filming was over he bought it from its owner. If that doesn’t warm your heart I don’t know what could.

don’t forget that he also bought arwen’s horse for her stunt rider when she couldn’t afford it awww

#also don’t forget that for the rohirrim they put a call out for locals #bring a horse show us you can ride it and get a part in the battle scenes #and one women went out roped a wild horse and rode for a few days to set #and got to be a rider of rohan

also sort of relevant viggo also bought the horse that costarred with him in the movie hidalgo and subsequently took the horse (tj) with him to the red carpet premier. 

Also most of the Riders of Rohan are actually women because when they put out that call mostly women showed up with their horses and the costume team just stuck beards on them.

It would be incredible awesome if the 12th doctor worn a kilt, and the alien kept making fun of the kilt and curiousing what under that kilt :)

phantom: hey
phantom: i just met you
phantom: and this is crazy
phantom: but i've been stalking you for years because since the moment i first heard you sing i have needed you with me to serve me to sing for my music so i gave you an excellent vocal training through the walls under the guise of the angel of music and/or your dead father and now that you've become a success overnight i'm really hoping you'll come and live underground with me and we can just fuck and sing all the time because you alone can make my song take flight
phantom: so call me maybe

"Deborah Findlay’s performance simply exudes engrained bitterness. It is obvious that her desperate character has been damaged by suffering. Penelope Wilton play’s her sister. A shell of her former self, she has been hardened by betrayal and abandonment. The fantastic first scene is a steely tussle between the two twin sisters, simmering with resentment and jealousy."
(Deborah Findlay and Penelope Wilton in ‘John Gabriel Borkman’)
