I met Jim Jarmusch in November 2011 and I’d just finished shooting Avengers. I was doing press for War Horse, and was about to start The Hollow Crown for the BBC and PBS. In this swirl of superheroes and soldiers and Shakespeare, here was one of the great American indie auteurs, and we sat, and he pitched it to me. He said, “This is a love story about two old souls who are refined, sophisticated, delicate, and in danger. They’re very poetic, and it will be you and Tilda Swinton, and you’re a musician and she’s a bohemian… and by the way, you’re vampires.” It was the easiest “yes” in the world. And I’d always wanted to make a love story, because I’ve never made one like this, which is basically a love song. x

I’m Isaac. I’m seventeen. And it looks like I have to get surgery in a couple of weeks, after which I’ll be blind.
Do you know what the realm is? It’s the thousand blades of Aegon’s enemies, a story we agree to tell each other over and over until we forget that it’s a lie.
#i love it when people try to tell thor to back off#because his responses are always so casually to just… keep doing what he was doing anyway#like he’s not even mad#i just really really love terrifyingly strong and dangerous people who are total sweethearts and can you can genuinely trust them#(when you’re on the up and up and not getting in their way that is)#i love that thor is this warrior god with the kind of strength that can beat back even the hulk#that’s how strong he is!#and yet people don’t fear him in that same way!#because thor COULD be just as terrifying#but he’s not because he’s such a genuinely honest and good and noble person#that balance gets me in the feelings every time (via lokizillas)
