My secret Downton fangirl life

A to Z of Period Drama

One period drama per post: Me and Orson Welles

"The bone deep understanding that your life is so utterly without meaning that simply to survive you have to reinvent yourself. Because if people can’t find you, they can’t dislike you. You see if I can be Brutus for 90 minutes tonight; I mean really be him, from the inside out; then for 90 minutes I get this miraculous reprieve from being myself. That’s what you see in every great actor’s eyes."

One period drama per post: My Week with Marilyn

"All people ever see is Marilyn Monroe. As soon as they realize I’m not her, they run.

"If your feelings are still what they were last April, tell me so at once. My affections and wishes have not changed, but one word from you will silence me forever."
