Downton Abbey Rewatch + 2x01
Who has been your biggest mentor on the show?
Nat Dormer. I can ask her the most stupid embarrassing questions. I’ll be like “so what does it feel like to be in love?” and she will tell me and give advice. She’s probably my biggest mentor just in general life.

Text for Tired Eyes:
Listen, because we never know how much time we have and we
never, not ever, are in control of when the lights will go out
and we’ll be opening our eyes to a new light again. Listen:
Never be afraid to be proud of yourself. You are made of magic
and you share dust and light with the stars that shine above you. Please
promise me that you won’t dim your glow because it hurts
someone elses eyes. Cry. Really cry. They will try to show you
and tell you and convince you that men don’t cry, that they bite
their lip from the inside and swallow the blood with all the tears
they are too timid to let fall. They will say that men are the shoulders
and are the rock that stands in the current. Be the water instead
for one day that rock will be sand and it will have been you
and only you that washed it away. Laugh. Truly laugh. Let
life and all of its folly steal the breath from your body
and replace it with the staccato melody of giggles and guffaws;
the laughter that comes without fair warning and continues without
Never be afraid to follow your heart. Take all you have and risk it
truly risk it for where your crazy heart decides to take you.
Do not ever think you, exactly you, are not capable of chasing your dreams and do not ever think that you, exactly you, are not worth being chased.
It’s going to hurt, more than you think it will, and it’s going to heal
more than you ever imagine it can. You will be cut, scraped
and scarred from these pursuits but scars are stories and one day
someone will come along that will pilot the ship of their fingertips
down the random rivers of your scars. They will absentmindedly
and without knowing why, press their lips to them and feel the
smallest shock of life when skin touches skin.
