BEST THING EVER

TYWIN LANNISTER READING 50 SHADES OF GRAY IS WHAT THE UNIVERSE NEEDS MOST

Whenever I feel a little down, I go watch this video.

We live in an age of wonders.

Maybe I’m opening up my ask box for a video Q&A.

Or maybe I’m just trying to trick you into asking me things.

I’m sneaky like that.

Just a gentle reminder that my ask box is open for the next week to questions for a potential video Q&A :)

Reblogging one more time - ask box will be open until 1 August for questions for a potential video Q&A. If there are enough questions to warrant a video, I’ll shoot it the following week and try to post it ASAP.

Erik using his ventriloquism on Sasha…

THIS IS SO SAD AND SWEET AT THE SAME TIME.

*uncontrollable sobbing*

Excuse me while I cry aggressively in a corner.

“I had an awful job finding his core, his character, his personality and relating it too myself.. The in house director was a great guy called Geoff Ferris., and after watching me struggle with it for a few days.. (I only had about 21/2 weeks to learn it) He suggested that I be fitted up in the complete costume wigs and makeup., this was done., and it felt really weird standing there looking at myself in the rehearsal studio’s full length mirrors.. I couldn’t, I didn’t, see me at all. All I saw was The Phantom’ standing there not knowing what to do with himself, and then, all of a sudden… just like magic… I felt his awkwardness and vulnerability. We then slowly became kind of one.. I suddenly started to move in a strange, sort of balletic manner and my personality and demeanor became slightly creepy. I found myself wanting to be romantically sexy with the role.. the hands started fluttering and twitching when excited, my walk became a glide and I found myself rubbing my hands up and down my thighs.. And my anger was like lightning and instantly fierce.. I had found my phantom.. Thank you Geoff Ferris..” — Peter Karrie on playing the Phantom
