It’s Joss Whedon month on Facebook so I have changed my profile accordingly :D It’s just a shame we have to wait until June to see Much Ado About Nothing.
“I write to give myself strength. I write to be the characters that I am not. I write to explore all the things I’m afraid of. I write to do all the things the viewers want too. So the intensity of the fan response is enormously gratifying. It means I hit a nerve.” - Joss Whedon
Reporter: So, why do you write these strong female characters?
Joss Whedon: Because you’re still asking me that question.
The light on their faces: Mal is cragged, often shadowed, but strong, sad-eyed and kind. Kaylee is round, warm, and open. Sexuality and honesty. River is planed, underlit, eyes hooded. She’s a question. Simon works in angles as well, coolly handsome and hard to connect with - but ultimately he’s a romantic. Jayne doesn’t give a good goddamn how he’s lit. Zoe glows. She cannot help it. Wash is light, playful - often amongst his screens or slightly blown out by the sun of high atmosphere… Inara’s light is complex, like Mal’s. Hiding and beckoning.

“Alexis is not only one of my best friends, but my most favourite actor ever… he is so wonderful as a person and he’s just so talented… every scene I had with Alexis I was like ‘oh my god I get a scene with Alexis!’” - Amy Acker
Will ALWAYS reblog.
He also uses it in Firefly, because a lot of the non-Chinese swearwords in Firefly are archaic English ones.
Joss Whedon is amazing
I’m sure there’s an original photoset of this somewhere but I can’t seem to find it, so reblogging the screenshot will have to do!
