I get your thought process,Â Simon Kinberg, but I’m still side-eyeing you real hard.

I feel special :)
Frances is a character who’s definitely a woman, but her status is most important as a human rather than someone who’s either gendered or marriageable. I’m really interested in trying to tell stories about women that don’t involve romantic components. That’s so much a part of the way we feel about female characters and their needs that it feels like it’s built in — but I’d like to find a way that it’s not. There are so many more stories than that.

50 Girlcrushes of 2013: Jaime Murray
There is an ancient proverb etched into the wall of a cave some place on the Mediterranean coast that reads, “if you don’t think this character played by Jaime Murray isn’t kind of gay then you’re watching it wrong.” If there is a patron saint of all things (sub-textually) gay, it would be Jaime Murray and really, we should all just erect an altar to her and worship her as if she was because no one kisses the ladies like Jaime Fucking Murray. She has made out with Xena. She has made out with Jenny Schecter.. If that is not enough to get you lesbian street cred and an automatic discount at all lesbians bars, I don’t know what will. But beyond all that, she is just fabulous on twitter which, really, is all I care about these days.
