    does a bit about saying stick around we've got a great show in different voice tones
    *says it the exact same way he usually does right before the commercial break*

    For some reason, I didn't quite expect Emily Blunt to be so fun and charming and generally lovely? Not sure why to be honest. Maybe I'm just too used to seeing her play really serious characters in tense, humourless films like Sicario.

    That's an acting excersize where you say the same thing over and over and you are supposed to be listening to each other and it goes on literally for hours and it is the worst i hate it so much

    As someone who knows nothing about acting, that looked like really amazing acting to me (especially from Stephen considering he described himself as "not an actor")

    Emily is an amazing actress, and it’s unbelievable how she’s able to convey all those emotions using only one line, and how we can understand every one of those emotions the same as if it had real lines

    A cover is not the book, so open it up and take a look! For under the covers one discovers that the king may be a crook we’ve got a great show.
