Happy 24th birthday, Emma Watson! (April 15, 1990) ♥
“When I was auditioning for Joffrey. I only had one audition, and the producers and writers were laughing at my performance because I was being so snotty and arrogant. They found it comical. I thought that was good.” —Jack Gleeson
“Jack is gorgeous – a wonderfully sensitive, quiet, intelligent scholar. He’s the antithesis of that character.” —Michelle Fairley
"Jack, who plays Joffrey is such a lovely fellow." --Ian McElhinney
“He’s this really contemplative, erudite, really gorgeous, generous human being, and he plays Joffrey so well. It’s very disturbing.” —Natalie Dormer
"Jack Gleeson, who plays Joffrey is an absolute sweetheart in real life, you know what I mean. He’s such a brilliant actor. I think he’s a genius." —Mark Addy
“He’s the most polite, lovely, intelligent person in the whole cast! He’s just so humble and everyone loves him. There’s nothing anyone can say bad about Jack. He literally just turns it on. As soon as they go, “Action!” he goes from lovely Jack to the most sadistic, horrible creep on television.” —Sophie Turner
“Jack Gleeson is really a very nice young man, charming and friendly.” —George R.R. Martin
"I kind of wish he would do more television interviews so that people can see what he’s really like, because there is so much hate for Joffrey, I feel protective of Jack now. If I were him, I’d be petrified that people would come up and slap me on the street! I should be his bodyguard." —Sophie Turner
"Jack is actually a very sweet boy and very bright, very intelligent young man with a natural talent." —Charles Dance
"Jack! He’s the coolest. He smokes a pipe, people. Talk about great acting for somebody who’s so different from the part he plays. I love that guy." —Peter Dinklage
Rick Grimes meme: [7/10] quotes
Yeah, I get it. I get it. Shit happens.
"Merle had this dealer. This janky little white guy. A tweaker. One day we were over at his house watching tv. Wasn’t even noon yet and we were all wasted. Merle was high. We were watching this show and Merle was talking all this dumb stuff about it. And he wouldn’t let up. Merle never could. Turns out it was the tweaker’s kid’s favirite show. And he never sees his kids, so he felt guily about it or something. So he punches Merle in the face. So I started hitting the tweaker like, hard. As hard as I can. Then he pulls a gun, sticks it right here. He says, "I’m gonna kill you, bitch." So Merle pulls his gun on him. Everyone’s yelling. I’m yelling. I thought I was dead. Over a dumb cartoon about a talking dog. The tweaker punched me in the gut. I puked. They both started laughing and forgot all about it.”
#[ this is so important #both joe and merle were figures of authority #strong dominant males in daryl’s life no matter the length of time they were in it for #daryl gravitates toward figures who are going to tell him what to do#because he always has #he grew up in merle’s shadow #it’s in his nature to sub-conciously move toward an alpha male because he’s always done it #he’s lived with it all his life #when he lost merle he lost that alpha male #and it’s not that he’s /looking/ for a replacement #it’s not that he /trusts/ joe #it’s because he /can’t help it/ #he doesn’t realise he’s moving toward a man like joe because that’s just how it’s been all his life #it’s not obvious to him #it’s not friendly - it’s not romantic - it’s nothing emotional at all #it’s sub-conscious #] #;bad blood.

Thank you this is all I wanted to say. And I think Daryl even feels relieved that he’s under the dominion of males like them. Because he was made like that.
