Do you ever get starstruck when you get these famous people coming up to you and saying how much they love it (the show)? “Yeah, it’s crazy. It’s kind of really humbling. I’m like wow i can’t believe this is actually happening to people like us - half of us just came out of drama school and went straight into this and we didn’t realise how big it was going to be “
I interviewed a young anthropologist working with women in Mali, a country in Africa where women go around with bare breasts. They’re always feeding their babies. And when she told them that in our culture men are fascinated with breasts there was an instant of shock. The women burst out laughing. They laughed so hard, they fell on the floor.
They said, “You mean, men act like babies?”

The way people in love gaze at each other – the way they look lovingly at each other – the knowing glances they share with each other— tells you they are in love. There is a “look to love.”
May, how’s it going?
I wanted to write you a letter to say hi, and also to say sorry about leaving like I did. I miss you already. You are world class, and I mean that. Our group of friends was nothing until you sprayed Rae all over it. Look after ‘em all. You’re the one they always look to, you’re the glue, so no pressure.

I never knew how true and realistic and non-exaggerated this episode was until I went to college.
And this is partly why I dropped out of college.
