The quiet ones are usually the most dangerous.
Feminist Theory would not exist had it not been for radical Black women (particularly Black Lesbians). Audre Lorde, bell hooks, Angela Davis, Barbara Smith, Kimberle Crenshaw, Flo Kennedy, Alice Walker, Patricia Hill Collins, Dorothy Roberts, Shirley Chisholm, etc. Never fucking forget that.

Why, yes she did!
Thanks for bringing that to my attention! <3
Also, if you’d like my opinion, I think that Colin’s wardrobe was very carefully chosen for him. I believe it was chosen with the purpose of making a very specific statement, as was his general appearance (the trimmed beard, the artfully tousled but not messy hair, the perfectly matched suit that gave off an historical air, etc). They wanted to broadcast loud and clear that he is an up and coming, talented, confident young actor that people should take notice of.
This was a chance for his agents to launch Colin Morgan onto the world stage.
Did you notice how he stopped to do every interview, stopped many times to speak to fans and sign autographs? He was charming, witty, intelligent and handsome. The more buzz out there about this relatively unknown supporting actor (especially when combined with favourable reviews for his performance), the better noticed he’ll be and the more work he’ll attract.
As much as we are big fans of Colin’s (with plenty of reason), he’s not really that well known (if one is not a Merlin fan, that is), especially outside of the UK. (For example, the review from the Hollywood Reporter didn’t even mention his name, not even as a supporting actor! Most of the rest of the reviews thus far weren’t familiar with his work before this film.)
Make no mistake, this film is a big deal…his first time doing such a high profile and visibility Film Festival. His other two films, while they had international releases, were small independent films. Testament of Youth is huge; backed by both the BBC and Heyday Films and set for widespread worldwide release. This is the kind of film that could potentially win awards like BAFTAs or Oscars.
Between this movie, his role on The Fall, the release of Legend, and his new role on the dual-continent release show Humans (I don’t know much about the UK’s Channel 4, but in the US, AMC is bringing us smash hits like The Walking Dead), I really think that 2015 is set to be Colin’s breakout year.
