Sansa could sew and dance and sing. She wrote poetry. She knew how to dress. She played the high harp and the bells. Worse, she was beautiful. Sansa had gotten their mother’s fine high cheekbones and the thick auburn hair of the Tullys.

"Rae’s a beautiful person. Not bitchy and broken like me."
"And there’s another thing Chloe’s better at than me, holding it together. She’s so strong in situations where I’d crumble."
GOOD! I mostly read interviews with Sophie and Nikolaj since Sansa and Jaime are my favourite characters, and their readings and interpretations of their respective characters are so spot on.
I’ve also seen around tumblr that e.g. Maisie and Lena and Michelle also have this deep understanding for their characters.
However the show has a tendency to butcher the characters and glorify some at the expense of others, which makes it hard for these amazing, intelligent actors to always give interpretations closer to the book, which is a shame.
Don and Peggy define themselves through their work all too often, and if that work is taken away from them or eroded of meaning, they’re stuck in a world where all they can think about is how little meaning life has outside of the meaning you construct for yourself. But even that meaning collapses in the face of despair or sorrow or death. Without work to give them meaning, without each other to bounce off of, what do Don and Peggy have left? Only the knowledge that they, too, will die, and that much of their lives have been hollow attempts to fill that void.
