First off, I just need to get this out of the way. ANASHDHDKFJFKSMFJANSJDJDJSKDKFJFKGJDJDKDJFJFLLSLFAK. Okay, thanks—I feel better.
I decided to ask Chris if he’s going to use a dialect coach for Noel, and he VERY excitedly told me he was working with someone now. (He was so enthusiastic—he told me her name, just in case I’m ever in the market for a dialect coach I guess.)
Now, Noel Coward had a really weird accent you guys—clipped and strange. Chris said, “I could do an English accent on my own but…”
I interrupted him (kind of rudely, by accident), “Noel had a really strange accent…”
He finished for me. “Yeah, it’s all weird and kinda choppy” We both made pointy finger motions in the air at the same time. (To illustrate the very peculiar, specific, way Noel spoke.)
Then he grinned and told me that my question was a good one. I smiled so wide, I thought my face was going to explode.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Chris has an unbelievably genuine way of really engaging with you as if you are the only person in the room. He’s charming, sweet, and an utter delight to talk with. I’m very grateful I’ve been able to meet him three times. He seems so happy and comfortable in his skin—it’s great to see. I hope TLOS3 does well, and look forward to the tour for TLOS4. :)
"I don’t mind them writing about the characters, but when they write about us, doing things, with each other… It’s, it’s just, it’s uncomfortable. It’s way too far. ‘Cause it’s like, I mean like, they’re co-workers, they’re like siblings, y’know, you don’t want to read things about you… doing stuff. It’s, oh, god, it’s just, no, terrifying."
