Season 8, Episode 3: The First Pitch Insufficiency.
“They’re just jealous because they’ll never have a relationship as good as ours.”
Bill and Virginia + intimacy
was that a flip off
That was a flip off.
theeeeeeeeere’s the twelve that tumblr was waiting for
I told you there was a war coming. There will be so many deaths.
So my GF and I weren’t sure if we were going to go and see Burn right away on the first day, but we ran into one of her friends who had gotten a pic of him at his autograph table and just seeing him in the pic made us go “Okay, no, we have to do this NOW.”
So we went to find his autograph table but he wasn’t there… so we hung around for a while, and he eventually showed up for his next autograph session.
He was a goofball from the start. He was talking to the people who were escorting him, but as soon as he saw the small line waiting for him already (I think there were maybe a dozen of us?) he grinned and said something along the lines of “Oh, who is this queue for? I want to join in!” and he came right into the line area and pretended to line up behind a girl a few people away from us, who looked like she was about to have a heart attack (Jules tells me later that he apparently touched her back or something, hence the panic).
So then he just kinda giggles and moves out of the line and to his table, and the autographs start. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to buy one of the pics he had there, so I pulled out my Torchwood DVDs and my River Song journal. My journal is something I started last year when I met the first three members of the Torchwood cast… I asked them for any kind of nice statement or advice or something to write in, as I’d been having a shit time for a long time with my bad anxiety and lack of self esteem and self-confidence.
When we got to the table, there was only one photo of Owen, and it only took me a few seconds to realize that it was a still from Reset, literally seconds before (*SPOILERS*) Owen gets shot and killed (the first time, anyway). So I was like ?!?!?! Oh hell no! haha.
Burn was taking a long time with each person, which was amazing. When we met Karl Urban last year, they rushed us through so fast we barely even got to say hello, but Burn was spending at least a couple of minutes with every person.
When it was my turn I panicked a little but I was okay once I got talking. He saw my Torchwood DVDs right away and jokingly said “Oh you’re one of THOSE strange people,” and giggled, to which I proudly told him yes. I told him that I hadn’t even known what Torchwood was at first, but that my GF had got me to watch it, and that within about ten minutes, Owen was my favourite character, after which I’m pretty sure he teasingly called me crazy (the details are a little hazy already since I was so !!!!!!!).
Articolo/intervista sul numero di oggi del Corriere della Sera.

according to this newspaper of course XD:
- He’s vegetarian.
(this is new to me)
- He’s against the Scotland indipendence (“I wish Scotland to remain part of the UK. You can also find independence within a union.”)
- He has a passion for cars (“because they are objects of desire, machines that you can own and carry it wherever you want but, paradoxically, I don’t like driving.”)
- He thinks that sentimental loneliness can be a benefit for an actor, but he believes in friendship.
- He wants to preserve his privacy, he wants his family to be proud of his work and not for the gossip about him.
He had never said some things before, haven’t he?
By the way, a further translation of the other main points of the interview made by me:
(sorry Jenks I didn’t want to steal (?) you anything)
"He spends his time filming videogames, reading books about Van Gogh" […][on his experience in a Buddist monastery] “One of the most intense moments of my life. It made me undestand the importance of the silence, which I often use in acting”. He admits he is still obsessed with Julian Assange whom he played on screen in The Fifth Estate, he favours animated films because “they free your mind, they make you feel like a child”, he loves theatre. “Next year I will be playing Hamlet at Barbican Theatre of London, city I will never leave for Hollywood. In my opinion there are resemblances between Sherlock Holmes and the Shakespearian character. The dilemma rules their existences.”Cumberbatch was born and raised in a noble family; his great-grandfather was at Queen Victoria’s Court. […]He minimizes his possible nomination at the Oscars; “For sure - he asserts with elegant irony - Academy members love actors with Irish or British accents. They are subjected through inferiority complexes to the Anglo-Saxon charm. There are many of us: from Hugh Grant to Christian Bale, Tom Hiddleston, Tom Hardy, Micheal Fassbender, Jude Law, Ewan McGregor…I’m not snob, but I feel I’m every inch English and I don’t go to press conferences or talk shows wearing trainers. I’m not in the right position to dispense opinions, success comes and goes, I detoxify myself from that by travelling to Africa, by confronting myself with those who have nothing, taking on campaigns for the protection of women in Afghanistan and claiming rights for every minority and liberty for gay people. I don’t take selfies and I don’t have familiarity with social media nor I write on Twitter what I’m eating for breakfast.And after the role of Turing in The Imitation Game, what has he got in store? “I will be in a movie about the Iraq war, after Toronto I will come back on set with Johnny Depp for Black Mass, from the book by Scott Cooper, a biopic about Whitey and Billy Burger brothers. We film in Boston, I always like studying the real story of the characters I portrait. It’s a process that tones down vanity, ego, even the actors’ insicurities. It saves me from every satisfaction and dictates a sort of self-meditation, which I practise regularly.”[…][on an actor loneliness and the importance of friendship] “Contradictions are part of my nature but I try to be invisible to fans, to lead a life that belongs to me. For privacy I’ve led battles in England, one of my goals is to make my family proud of me not for the gossip but for what I do.”What gave you your painful interpretation of Turing, who in the Second World War helped the UK to crack the secret Nazi codes? “The sense of fragility of the human nature, the loneliness of the intellect, the courage of one’s own sexual orientation. I need intensity in life, Alan Turing gave it to me through the shame of the English courts’ persecutions against his homosexuality. Homophobia, antisemitism, racism still exist and spread in this world.”
SERIOUSLY HOW ADORABLE IS THIS
