So you’re quite the feminist? “Yes, I am. I think it’s harder for actresses. That’s not to sound condescending, there’s some wonderful young female directors coming through at the moment. This is the time for them. They are all taking over the theatre. That’s very exciting.” [x]
“When I really started thinking more seriously about my industry and how it treats women, I thought, ‘I would rather say stuff and have people laugh at me than say nothing about it at all.’”— Romola Garai talking about gender equality // The Interval (x)
This is one of my favorite interviews we’ve done for The Interval. If you’re interested in a really, really smart woman’s thoughts on being a woman working in the entertainment industry, read it.
You’ve got absolutely no poker face.

I’m thinking about setting up a Manga club at a secondary school. I think it’s something that would be popular and that the children would enjoy. Trouble is, I’ve never really done any Manga before. (I know.) I’ve been looking online and have found lots of tutorials and I think I’m slowly learning, but it’s really hard!
Does anyone know the best way to quickly learn Manga style? Is there a good book or website?
In the club itself I was thinking of basically letting the children create their own story/comic strip and characters. Would this work with Manga? Can you think of any other club ideas?
And I will call my new Italian fast casual eatery The Low-Cal Calzone Zone.
