“I think it’s just two people on the road together for a few months with nothing else really to do but start fancying each other. I think it’s more a case of that — I think they’re actually just fantastic, fantastically good friends. So obviously because they’re such good friends there are obviously qualities in each other that they find attractive, and I think just a few months of loneliness on the road possibly provokes a bit of lust.” Daniel Radcliffe on Harry and Hermione’s relationship in Deathly Hallows Pt. I, via Behind the Magic.
Doctor and Rose things → [5/8] Protectiveness
#like the number of times #Rose was just around the corner #or in the loo #or two aisles over at Tesco’s #and the Doctor interrogated some poor shelf stacker #all Oncoming Storm #”I WANT TO KNOW WHERE ROSE TYLER IS AND I WANT TO KNOW NOW #OR I WILL TEAR THIS WHOLE SUPERMARKET APART FINDING HER!” #and Rose pops her head around#two bottles of milk in hand #packet of biscuits cradled in her elbow #”Doctor leave that poor bloke alone and help me carry these to the check out” #and she buys him a Mars bar#as a secret thank you #for not leaving her behind (via paige)
Harry… there’s someone watching us…
If there is one thing that is absolutely certain, it’s that Jared Padalecki is very good at his job. It is also common knowledge that genre shows are usually left out of prestigious award ceremonies and are generally lacking in the recognition they often deserve. As a result, there are some very talented actors and actresses who go unrecognized and unrewarded for the brilliant portrayals they bring to the screen.
Jared Padalecki is one of those people. Regularly going up against actors who are just as good as well as oftentimes being seasoned veterans, Jared continually proves to the audience that he can not only hold his own, but go above and beyond what the basic expectations are for his portrayal of Sam Winchester.
Jared has many skills that are incredibly rare in an actor, skills that are apparent to even me, a person who is about as skilled in theater as a fish is on land. As said before, Jared is routinely paired with actors and actresses who are not only extremely good at what they do, but also have three times the experience that he does and each time, Jared holds his own. And not only does he hold his own, but he has chemistry with every single one of them. He listens, he reacts, he responds to what’s going on around him, to the actions of the people he is working with. He’s always present, always alert, always changing and adapting, taking risks and putting so much passion into each of those risks that they nearly always pay off.
And it’s not only the fact that he is naturally a wonderful actor but the fact that the character he is now most known for, Sam Winchester, has been put through the ringer in every single way possible. Jared has played everything from a man without a soul, to an intellectually gifted, empathetic man, a demon and a leviathan, Lucifer himself, an addict, and all the way to a man who lost nearly everything but still managed to save the world.
It’s not to say that he is more talented than his co-stars, but that Jared is just as good. He has a huge amount of talent, of sincerity in his portrayals, of love for what he does and a hell of an ability to adapt and change and knock it out of the park each time. And that needs be recognized and acknowledged as often as possible.
I believe in you
So, there’s been a reference to each Doctor’s era in chronological order since The Rings of Akhaten. If this holds true, there should be a mention of Six’s in Nightmare in Silver, and Seven’s in the finale…
