love yourself as much as you love your favorite character

Y’all, the coolest thing happened today at my callback.

I’m up for this role I think is the smartassed, less cute best friend but the director gives me some background before I start reading. He explains to me that although my character is not the love interest in the story, she’s the definite leader of her group. She’s made friends with Kyle and set up Kyle’s dorm room as her base and she hangs out with a crew (he actually used the word crew, y’all) made up of her friends and Kyle’s friends. She’s smart and witty and a dominant personality but very warm and considerate, unless somebody fucks with her group.

Y’all, I’m basically up for the role of 2014’s NYU version of Kathryn Janeway. The love story is about the equivalent of Seven but no matter. They’re considering me because they got “smart, confident, nurturing leader” from me and my performance. I’ve never been so proud of the way I’ve been perceived. Did I mention the character’s name was Nicole? If I get the part, I wonder if they’ll change it to Kathryn.

What are your headcanons about me?




Just curious. 

This sounds really fucking awesome.

Guys make headcanons about me.

It’s been 3 whole days. Everybody give me a standing ovation for waiting this long to reblog it again! Because I wanted to every HOUR.

Li’l Red did a double-long workout tonight (cause TV thin don’t come natch)! If any of you are under the misapprehension that I will stop reblogging this—from myself at that—any time soon, you’re in for a GRAND and lingering surprise. 


when someone associates you with a character you really really love it’s like the best feeling in the world everyone go home

Taylor Schilling is only 30. I’m really not much younger than that.

I try to work hard, stay positive, seek out opportunities, persevere, and keep my bitching about lack of success as an actress to a minimum. I have a roof over my head and food to eat. I live in a free country. I have people who believe in me. It could be worse.

But it could be better too. In the words of Tevye from Fiddler on the Roof, “Would it spoil some vast, eternal plan?” I like to believe that there are forces in the universe that ensure that the right things happen and for a real reason. That I’m not going to be auditioning fruitlessly into my 70s or that financial hardship doesn’t force me to quit by 40 so I’ll be able to eat till I die. But there’s a part of me that thinks, maybe the universe really is random and no one/nothing cares OR, even worse, the reason I’m not quitting this and that I have this drive is to serve something or someone else’s cosmic agenda—that they will find success through my failure.

Like I said, it could be worse. But I really thought that by my age, working as hard as I do, that I’d be just a bit more successful. I don’t want to be destined to a sad life of constant poverty and isolation. I sincerely hope that my luck picks up soon. Happy Birthday, Taylor Schilling. It’s not your fault that you’re you. I’m glad somebody in this world is happy and making a living doing what they love.

I’m writing an episode of Murder, She Wrote where nobody gets killed. It’s called “An Old Lady Goes Jogging”.

She’s like MADE of that-stuff-that-when-the-camera-hits-you-people-have-to-watch. I would kick a puppy hard if it ensured I got a fraction of her I-compel-you-to-watch-me-stuff-ness. And kicking a puppy is pretty much the worst thing you can do in this world.


to quote hamlet act III scene iii line 92, “no”



So marcygoomen egged me on a few days back when she posted a screen cap of Kate’s Mulgrew’s beautiful legs. I met that challenge with posting a shirtless Robert Beltran in a very lovely compromising position. So now on ChakoDAY, I am not only posting a zoomed in version of the original (because I roll very silly like that) but I am also posting an additional photo from this same scene in Forbidden Sun. Enjoy!

dontyouauntkathyme said: I think I just died. There’s a very serious possibility that I’m currently DEAD.

I have a confession… I had several screen caps of this scene in my draft box for months, I debated submitting it to angrywarriortush… but I just continued to *cough cough* enjoy it in my draft box. I am so sorry. It was short-sighted and it was selfish, and now all of us are paying for my mistake…

OH. MY. GOD. I can ha’ dat? Full disclosure: I saw this on the train. When the lady next to me looked over at me crazy, I realized it’s because I moaned a little.


Your dimples make my knees weak.

…and my kegels strong.
