I’m doing cartwheels in my head (I can’t do an actual cartwheel)
I am so fucking excited I think I might have had a heart attack and may be typing this from the Great Beyond.
I can’t wait to start work on this movie. I mean, I’ve already started crafting Marlene in my head but I can’t wait to get my hands on the full script. I’m also freaking out about getting to work with a dialect coach because while I’ve worked on my English accent for years (with a bit of coaching from my English uncle) I’ve never worked with someone specifically trained in dialects.
When I tell you that this is literally a dream come true I am not exaggerating- I remember being 9 years old and being fucking heartbroken that they had cast someone else as Hermione for the Harry Potter films. It’s actually why I started learning an English accent- my dad tried to console me by telling me I wouldn’t have been cast anyway because I’m not British. I was determined to be as British as fucking possible because I was 9 and really damn dramatic.
I’m going to get to act again. I’m going to act again. I have not been this excited in years.
