when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains,
however improbable, must be the truth
“When I’m on set, I’m just thinking about the script and of working. I think I’ve stayed focused on the work so much that I haven’t really noticed my life start to change except for I’ve gotten busier.”
Sometimes I think if you didn’t have me, there wouldn’t be a single person in the world who understood you.
Do you remember the moment you wanted to be an actress, as a career? My first main job was [Lasse Hallström’s 2007 drama] Casanova, and I remember being in one of the taxi speedboats from Venice Airport flying over across the lagoon to be taken to the hotel to start production. And I was looking at Venice while riding out over the water and pinching myself, thinking, “Oh my god, I am actually being paid to be in this incredible city to act.” After three years of classical training, where we are told, in British drama schools at least, that we are going to sit in sawdust for years and years and years and see so much unemployment and we should prepare ourselves for the worst. The magic of Venice appearing out of the lagoon and me realizing, “I can actually do this as a job.” You just never take it for granted.Natalie Dormer for Vanity Fair.
We will sing to you, Doctor. The universe will sing you to your sleep. This song is ending, but the story never ends.
