There’s something about empathy that’s really important, I feel, as an actor. Empathy is the thing I’ve learned the most from playing these different characters.
We often judge somebody by how they look on the outside. And, yes, maybe that person plays into how they look on the outside, but there are so many different levels to who they are and what they’re experiencing.
Everyone, every single one of us, has a capacity to be anything, to do anything. We all have potential for cruelty, for love, for motherhood. As a woman, especially, you don’t often get a chance to play that in a role.”
Maslany says she’s been fascinated by human psychology ever since she was a young child.
"The potential of the human being", she says, then laughs gently, as if worried suddenly that she might come across as sounding a little precious for her own good.” — Tatiana Maslany (via tatianamaslanydaily)

Delivered flatly, calmly, just short of menacingly, his speech covers everything from environmental policy to penalty rates; from school funding to broadband; from the Trans-Pacific partnership to the shark cull. It includes so many incredible lines that it’s hard to pick the best one — but it’s probably the bit where he describes the Coalition’s leadership team as “blundering and technically illiterate”; the bit where he describes Abbott’s relationship with mining billionaires and media oligarchs as “awkward, and kind of revolting”; or the bit where he calls the current Government “a thin, greasy layer in the core sample of future political scientists”.

That’s been noted too.”
