A wonderful Louise Brealey interview. [x]
A few excerpts are below. I am forever grateful for her hair ruffle suggestion! But really, please do read the entire interview. It is wonderful.
"In the script it was just a James Bond-style clinch, but I wanted it to be a proper snog and not a peck. In one take Benedict did the hair ruffle to get the glass out, and in the next take he didn’t do it, and I was like, ‘Put the ruffle back in. It’s really hot!’ It looks good, though, doesn’t it?"
"I don’t think of fans as geeks," she says, "and I don’t think of being a geek as a negative, because I’m a geek. I’ve got quite a lot of young women following me on Twitter, and it’s great to be able to have a dialogue with them. I’m a feminist, so it’s great to be able to prattle on about feminist things. Bizarrely, I suddenly find myself a role model for some of these girls. At first it was hilarious, thinking ‘how can I be a role model?’, which sounded like a terrifying prospect."
I love her. And she looks hot as fuck in that picture.
