#in the hands of almost any other actor#this would collapse the entire artifice of the show & the contrivance of one actress playing about a dozen clones#the integrity of each performance would break down#you’d be left with the sense that the clones are interchangeable women with only superficial differences in appearance & mannerism#but somehow she’s able to layer these performances one over another like skins#there’s a tangible difference between tatiana maslany as alison hendrix#and tatiana maslany as sarah manning as alison hendrix#each of the clones is so whole and unique and distinct that the performances are collectively an argument:#these human beings aren’t interchangeable#they share DNA but environment and nurture and epigenetics have made them completely singular individuals#[they aren’t even all women]#you can’t generalise them; there’s no single trait they all share#except that they’re human beings not biological objects to be exploited#her work is such a tour de force sometimes it just leaves you breathless (via elucipher)
Sometimes I forget that she is real…
im a bad person who thinks bad thoughts like ‘ew what is that girl wearing’ and then remember that im supposed to be positive about all things and then think ‘no she can wear what she wants, fuck what other people say damn girl u look fabulous’ and im just a teeny bit hypocritical tbh
I was always taught by my mother, That the first thought that goes through your mind is what you have been conditioned to think. What you think next defines who you are.
And also what you actually DO or SAY! Don’t feel bad for the way you react immediately, or even the way you feel. Change your behavior, and think before you act. The thoughts will follow. (And also if you are AWARE that you are being hypocritical, that already means you made the biggest step).
So that’s it, huh? I remember the drill. One slayer dies, the next one’s called. I wonder who she is. Will you train her? Or will they send someone else? Buffy, I… - Does it say how he’s gonna kill me? Do you think it’ll hurt? Don’t touch me! Were you even gonna tell me? I was hoping I wouldn’t have to, that there was some way around it. I… - I’ve got a way around it. I quit. It’s not that simple. I’m making it that simple. I quit! I resign! I-I’m fired! You can find someone else to stop The Master from taking over. I’m not sure that anyone else can. […] Giles, I’m sixteen years old. I don’t wanna die.
