“There are so many reasons Klaine is such a cherished, beloved couple – and perhaps even the most favorite on “Glee.” The driving force behind the fan shipping is unquestionably the incredibly brilliant job Chris Colfer and Darren Criss do bringing Kurt and Blaine to life – and making their feelings in any given moment in their relationship so wonderfully real. The amazing thing about this phone call is how much we feel what they are feeling – on two separate ends of the conversation, in two separate places. Blaine clings to every word Kurt says (and so do we, who are we kidding?). When Kurt says “I miss you like crazy” and “You’re still my best friend” Blaine fights tears and ours flow helplessly—en masse. Kurt promises they’ll have a “mature heart-to-heart” at Christmas and maybe go ice skating. Darren Criss just nails how you can be so happy and sad at once that you can’t really even speak. So Blaine sort of squeaks out, “So we’re really gonna see each other at Christmas?” and Kurt says yes, with confidence. When Blaine sort of breathes out, “I love you so much, Kurt…” Kurt offers a shorter, more crisp, “I love you too.” It’s obvious Kurt is trying to keep his chin up and not break down – until Isabelle finds him and offers him a hug and tears roll down his face.”
- The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
Seriously one of the best films I’ve seen in a while. Incredible performances from Dame Maggie Smith and Dame Judi Dench. Definitely the best of British in the cast! It makes me want to take MORE lessons to be even half as good. Very inspiring to watch them on screen. Just wow….
The fact that I even get to pursue this career and art is beyond amazing. I do not take it for granted. Sure, it can be hard. It takes a lot of worth and dedication. But I have been blessed with some amazing opportunities that allow me to pursue this dream and I do not take that for granted for one second. When I struggle with self doubt (which is daily), I remember what I fell in love with and what compelled me to begin to pursue doing what I’ve set out to do in the first place. Then it all makes sense once again. I get myself out of the way and let love and passion lead me once again. I believe my life is purposed and not an accident and I can walk in that faith.
The main things that keep me going are my family, friends and my love for of storytelling.”

THIS is exactly how I feel!
Ok, time to stop feeling sorry for myself and get back out there. Yes its hard, yes it takes a lot of knock backs to find that big thing but nothing easy ever happened over night. And so what if I dont “Make it” I’m damn well gonna have fun trying. BRING IT ON.
Why are all the awesome shows I’d LOVE to be cast in, American!?
- Once upon a time
- Vampire Diaries
- Modern Family
- White Collar
- The New Normal
But I guess being British means I get Downton Abbey, Dr Who, Sherlock……….
Twilight - Breaking Dawn Part 2
So I saw Breaking Dawn Part 2 today….. And I know a LOT of people hate on the Twilight saga but guess what? I LIKED IT. And I actually got quite emotional at the end.
The way after the film, they featured every single named character in like a montage, from all 4 films was incredibly well done. Really felt like a fitting end. They even included BOTH Victoria’s after the controversial cast change after the first film. Most impressively…..they managed to add the fight scene that the book seriously lacked, without changing the book ending which was so clever. It gave Aro a reason to back off instead of him just saying “oh ok, we won’t fight, see ya later” like he kind of did in the book. The scene was just perfect and really en captured what the book lacked. The added scenes really moved the story along without dragging insignificant details like parts of the book did, and added a new deeper understanding to some of the characters.
Only downside for me was the CGI used on Remesmee, it was awful at times. Embarrassing for a multimillion pound movie franchise in this day and age. The film is packed with an impressive array of well known faces, as well as some new promising talent in Hollywood. But the disappointment for me was Kristen Stewart. I’m sorry but her acting is questionable at the best of times and I feel she let the film down. Her lack of versatility in her face meant most of her expressions remained similar. I don’t like to criticise fellow actors but I was just very disappointed in her performance. But the movie as a whole really was a fitting end to a saga I’ve become very fond of. Also - so so glad they reverted back to the original composer (Carter Burwell) from the first film. The soundtrack was a million times better than the middle films and really felt like the Indie film it started out being. Perfect score.
The final shot of the movie is of the last page in the book, the last word echoing ‘Forever’ felt like it was not only for the story but for the fans too.
P.s. Keep an eye out for a movie stealing performance from Lee Pace as Garratt. He’s such a talented actor and he is exactly how I imagined the character to be.
