"Perhaps it’s because she’s not a movie star, not intentionally. She didn’t just rock up with a dream and an easy charm. She’s an actress and she grafted her way up the career ladder. It’s a journey that goes back to her childhood— an upbringing that people find weirdly fascinating by virtue of its total normality."
Michelle Dockery for InStyle UK, January 2014

"you think he’s just some kind of lightning rod? someone who just gets struck again, and again, and again, and again?"
"You don’t understand, Masha. You have never understood. You are my treasure, my pale gold, the heart of my heart. You lie at the bottom of my being and gnaw upon my roots. But you are not one of us. No matter how like us you become. You were not with us when the world was so young, so easily misled. When there was only one star in the sky. You cannot know what we know. You are not built as we are built. You’ve learned so much, you have, and I am so proud of you. But you…” Koschei laid his hand on the black silk of her sternum. “You are still made of meat, gristle, and bone.” -Catherynne M. Valente, Deathless
All I ever wanted was the world
I can’t help that I need it all
The primadonna life, the rise and fall

In the end, they walk off together. Where do you think they went?
[Laughs] I’ve got no idea. There was one take we did where we slapped each other’s asses. It didn’t get in the final cut.
I don’t know, they probably went to my house because I live just on the other side of that bridge. Maybe they just went off and had a cup of tea. Or maybe they got on a plane to some glorious destination. I don’t know. (X)
