bea, slovakia, about |Glee rants, reblogs of pretty graphics, lots of whining. Sometimes I post something of my own. Mostly I'm at war with proper capitalization.
unfortunately for me, still a Glee blog, but my love for Parks and Rec is now a recurring theme.

“Without the water, the lilies cannot live, as I am without art.”
“I will paint almost blind, as Beethoven composed completely deaf.”
Men still have trouble recognizing that a woman can be complex, can have ambition, good looks, sexuality, erudition, and common sense. A woman can have all those facets, and yet men, in literature and in drama, seem to need to simplify women, to polarize us as either the whore or the angel.

Q: How did you prepare before shooting?
Tatiana Maslany: I worked with a dialect coach for all the different dialects. I also worked a lot on movement. I took a studio by myself, and put on my characters’ playlists—I had various different playlists for each character—and I just explored a space however that music moved me, music that felt or sounded like that character, the rhythm or the emotion or the aggression behind it. There’s something about music that makes me feel like a different person, that feels like an escape. I also read a lot about gang culture, the nature of being an orphan, the science of cloning, and about identical twins. It turns out twins tend to be a lot more similar than a clone would be since they share a womb, and so much information is passed to us while in the womb, and that wouldn’t happen for clone. That also gave me some room. I’m sure there will be some unavoidable similarities, since it’s always me playing these characters, but I really want to blow them out and make them as different from one another as possible.
