I was at university, playing Salieri in Peter Shaffer’s play Amadeus, when my dad told me, ‘You’re better than I ever was or will be. You’ll have a good time doing this. I’m going to support you’. It was a huge thing for a father to say to his son. It was very humbling and moving. One of the reasons I get out of bed in the morning and try to do my best each day is to make them proud.

[It’s a different phase in your life. You meet new people ’cause you’re a couple ... and then you just ... let your old friends slip away.]

It won’t be like that.

Benedict Cumberbatch Appreciation Post

"But mostly, I feel, compared with Cumberbatch, like someone going through existence with the contrast dial turned down. To him, it seems, everything is neon bright. The barbs may sting more sharply, but his sun must shine that much brighter.” - Stuart McGurk, British GQ (x)

The teacup cake flew with me to Hongkong last week where me and my awesome cumbercollective friends celebrate B’s early birthday

The 2 tiers cake and 36 cupcake were donated to William Booth all girls orphanage. It felt so good to share my blessing with others, this is my first donation and won’t be the last. Thanks B for making my life so colorful.

I wish you all the best in the world. Have a wonderful birthday :DD
