When I was about 25 years old, I worked with two very good actors. The encounters were brief, but I’ve remembered them both with great admiration. Wanda Ventham and Timothy Carlton both embodied qualities which one is fogyishly tempted to look at with nostalgia. Along with very considerable talent, they had elegance, glamor, wit, kindness and decency.

I didn’t know at the time that they were married or that they had a son of about 10 who was quietly gestating all the same attributes. And now, 30 years later, the boy has been let loose. He has taken the form of Benedict Cumberbatch.

His parents’ qualities are on rampant display. It’s rare to the point of outlandish to find so many variables in one actor, including features which ought to be incompatible: vulnerability, a sense of danger, a clear intellect, honesty, courage — and a rather alarming energy. I take no pleasure in feeling humbled, but there’s no getting around it.

He must be stopped.

# my heart   

my friend verónica and her ragtag team of misfits just had their proposal accepted to spend this summer researching fanfiction. i would have loved to be a part of it (alas, i’m graduating), but i’m still incredibly proud of all of these assholes for taking this initiative and giving attention to a whooole world of literature that doesn’t get nearly as much respect or credibility as it deserves.

as a big supporter of fanfiction, i’m thrilled to see this in the hands of people who actually give a fuck about it and i can’t wait to read the results!
