“We are completely the puppets of all the actors, okay? They’ll be writing the script for us. Especially the six-year-old, she’s not gonna buy a word you’ve written.”
- Tarsem Singh, on the set of The Fall.
Tarsem Singh spent 8 years searching for the right actress to play Alexandria before he began shooting the film. Alexandria’s charming and enigmatic character was, according to Singh, the driving force that could carry the film’s story. The interactions seen between Roy and Alexandria are essentially unrefined and natural, and the chemistry between the actors is very tangible. The development of their onscreen relationship in the resulting scenes corresponds with the relationship Lee and Catinca built in reality, as the hospital scenes were filmed consecutively.
You would think that teenagers would be the rudest customers when really it’s mostly old, middle-aged people.
That story was just a trick to get you to do something for me.
heavy in your arms // florence + the machine

and he took me to the river
where he slowly let me drown
me: *eats cookie dough*
