Born: July 21, 1976 in Hammersmith, London, England, UK

Married to: Bernie Cahill (26 May 2014 – present)

QUOTES:

I can’t even watch horror movies – I have to turn the music down!

I feel as though, as an actor, you can only make brave choices when you’re acting with people that you’re so relaxed with that you can make a mistake.
I’m not the best gamer – I think you need to be strategic and level-headed, and you need to remain calm under pressure… and I don’t really have those qualities!

If I had known how much I hate auditioning, I doubt I would have become an actress.

I try to really focus on the actors I’m working with and kind of read and respond to their behavior.

As an actor, if you decide that someone is bad… you can’t play bad, because even the worst person doesn’t think what they’re doing is bad.

Happy Birthday: Justin Bartha

Happy Birthday: Ernest Hemingway (1899–1961)

ernesthemingway.jpgErnest Hemingway (1899–1961)

Born: July 21, 1899 in Oak Park, Illinois, USA

Died: July 2, 1961 (age 61) in Ketchum, Idaho, USA

Married to: Mary Welsh (14 March 1946 – 2 July 1961) (his death)
Martha Gellhorn (5 November 1940 – 21 December 1945) (divorced)
Pauline Marie Pfeiffer (10 May 1927 – 4 November 1940) (divorced) (2 children)
Elizabeth Hadley Richardson (3 September 1921 – 10 March 1927) (divorced) (1 child)

War wounds, two plane crashes, four marriages and several affairs took their toll on Hemingway’s hereditary predispositions and contributed to his declining health. He was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and insomnia in his later years. His mental condition was exacerbated by chronic alcoholism, diabetes and liver failure. After an unsuccessful treatment with electro-convulsive therapy, he suffered severe amnesia and his physical condition worsened. The memory loss obstructed his writing and everyday life. He committed suicide in 1961. Posthumous publications revealed a considerable body of his hidden writings, that was edited by his fourth wife, Mary, and also by his son Patrick Hemingway.

QUOTES:

As you get older, it is harder to have heroes, but it is sort of necessary.

A cat has absolute emotional honesty: human beings, for one reason or another, may hide their feelings, but a cat does not.

All things truly wicked start from an innocence.

There are events which are so great that if a writer has participated in them his obligation is to write truly rather than assume the presumption of altering them with invention.

All my life I’ve looked at words as though I were seeing them for the first time.

Happy Birthday: Norman Jewison

QUOTES:

Mainly, I thought of Barney as a kid. You can always look into the faces of kids and see what they’re thinking, if they’re happy or sad. That’s what I tried to do with Barney.

We began to do little things, have little scenes where we just talked about things that had nothing to do with the plot. In fact, in the beginning, they didn’t want us to do that. But as time went on, you see that in so many shows. I think we were the first to do that.

My idol was Jack Benny and he was the master of subtlety and timing.
