Who has been your biggest mentor on the show?
Nat Dormer. I can ask her the most stupid embarrassing questions. I’ll be like “so what does it feel like to be in love?” and she will tell me and give advice. She’s probably my biggest mentor just in general life.
Ah, fanart. Also known as the art that girls make.
Sad, immature girls no one takes seriously. Girls who are taught that it’s shameful to be excited or passionate about anything, that it’s pathetic to gush about what attracts them, that it’s wrong to be a geek, that they should feel embarrassed about having a crush, that they’re not allowed to gaze or stare or wish or desire. Girls who need to grow out of it.
That’s the art you mean, right?
Because in my experience, when grown men make it, nobody calls it fanart. They just call it art. And everyone takes it very seriously.
What were your inspirations, especially since [Tauriel] is a completely created character; what brought you to bring that power because there were a lot of ways you could have played that role that would have been along the lines of what we usually see for a girl in an action movie where she’s not in the adventure, she’s the prize…?
"Apologize to her!"
these children who are so determined to say that every actor in classic hollywood was a heterostraight are so ridiculous
not only is this showing the insecurity and the fragility of the heterosexuals but it’s like they’re freaking out because you KNOW they don’t like that all the hot babes were actually one of us.
and it’s kind of creepy when you think that they’re also probably mad that these DEAD actors who are DEAD wouldn’t be *available* to them to fulfill their time traveling fantasies.

Getting real tired of biphobia.
Watch this. Get educated. Sort yourselves out.
(If you consider yourself an ally to the LGBTQIAP+ community please share this video. Bisexuals are constantly erased and our identity is just as valid as those of gay and lesbian people. Our community is vast and varied, and bisexuals play a huge part in that. It’s 2014. We should’t have to put up with this any longer.)
"Depression is such a cruel punishment. There are no fevers, no rashes, no blood tests to send people scurrying in concern. Just the slow erosion of the self, as insidious as any cancer. And, like cancer, it is essentially a solitary experience. A room in hell with only your name on the door."
