The King and I, 1956.

posted 1 week ago with 227 notes

It was easy to get me to do this TV show. All the roles I’ve ever gotten, you’ve seen the roles I’ve gotten. They’ve been wonderful but so many of them have been downtrodden. They’ve been women who are pretty much asexual, they haven’t been realized, they have careers but no names. And all of a sudden I was given this opportunity to play someone sexy, mysterious, someone complicated. And it was a chance to use my craft. It was a chance to transform. It was a chance to surprise myself and the public. And I took it. - Viola Davis

Happy Birthday, Deborah Kerr (September 30, 1921 - October 16, 2007)

I learned when I was a girl that the golden rule in life is not to fight about things that aren’t important. Save up your strength and fighting spirit for the time that something comes along that is important to you. Then fight … and fight hard.

Happy 110th Birthday Greer Garson | 29 september, 1904 - 6 april, 1996

Why did I become an actress? I think because I am fascinated by the variety and scope of human experience. I am not content to live just one existence. I have always had a strong imagination and in my roles I feel that I live other lives. And the hazards and disappointments of an acting career and the solemn dissuasions of all my friends and advisers were a challenge. It has not been easy, but I believe that the best kind of success is not won easily and that a few hard knocks on the way are good for the soul. When I look back on some of my bitterest disappointments I realize that, in the long run, they were really strokes of good fortune. Things eventually turned out far better than if I had achieved what seemed so desperately important at the moment. So I believe that as one door closes, another will open.

Just to be clear, I’m not saying Emily should have to forgive Victoria for what she did to her.

All I’m saying is she’s no longer in any position to take the moral high ground- not after everything she’d done since she came to the Hamptons. Regardless of what the Graysons did to her in the past,…

Okay so I just saw the sneak peek for 4x01 and, I have to say, I was very impressed with the way Victoria handled herself in that scene.

Not only was she able to set aside her anger and acknowledge all the pain she’s caused Emily, but she even went as far as attempting to make peace with her…
