R16 your right, Kit did go to an all boys school. But Beth seems to be friends with a lot of Kit’s school friends. Maybe she went to the girls school most closely tied to his school. They were “school friends” while attending separate schools.

Tickets are insanely expensive. The event is limited to a few hundred people and it cost £55,000 to buy a table for ten. It will be a great networking event for whoever goes, but I doubt Bash and Will join Joe and Kit as a foursome. It seems a bit too high profile of an event for Kit to have Will as his official +1. If they make it a more casual group thing, lots of fans will rage about Bash attending instead of Yaz. I could possibly see Patrick and Eros attending along with Joe and Kit, not as guest but simply as important people in the industry who want to network.

Also lovely little nugget of information with the Come Dine With Me parties. Seems that they hang out even more socially than we realised.

by Anonymousreply 90November 16, 2022 10:00 PM

R90 his stylist always filters his pics for some reason; he has great skin so it’s dumb. Always presumed they hung out and talked more than they were given credit for. Even before the show came out, they had hangouts they didn’t post till ages later (Kit’s post for Joe’s 18th birthday was a clip from Bash’s house) and given bash and Joe live together and likely 0 of them want fans pinpointing where they live anyway, they post pretty rarely

by Anonymousreply 91November 16, 2022 10:03 PM

R90 I think it’s a filter and lighting based on how he looks in Brady’s pictures versus how he turns up at events. He looks washed out and softened almost unnaturally when Brady posts but looks much better at the events. Noticed that especially at the Attitude Awards.

Between how Kit looks at Joe in R147 and how Joe looks at Kit in R153 it's hilarious that people still try to argue that they're not close or that they're only friends because of Bash or whatever. They wear their fondness for each other on their sleeves (or in their eyes, basically).

by Anonymousreply 160November 17, 2022 1:52 PM

R160 Thankfully I don’t think many people do still argue that they aren’t close. Back when they did press earlier this year, I can semi understand why some people might have thought they didn’t get on ultra well - that was my very initial impression when I first watched a vaguely awkward interview of theirs - but the closeness is very obvious nowadays and the success of the show has clearly brought them much closer. It’s really nice to see.

by Anonymousreply 161November 17, 2022 1:58 PM

R160 aside from a few very deluded people I think as 161 said people do think they’re very close and mutually fond. People still have a weird love for ranking the cast friendships and arguing over whether Kit is closer to Joe or Bash for some reason but there’s no real question they are very close

Many people don't say they arent friends but also some people still can't separate them from their characters. Or are obsessed with calling them best friends or soul mates. A little weirdness on both sides

by Anonymousreply 163November 17, 2022 2:05 PM

I think calling them best friends or soulmates is relatively harmless (if a little deluded) - as long as it mostly stays away from thinking that they’re actually in love with each other then I’m happy with that. And compared to some fandoms, it does seem that people generally know not to do that. Probably partly because fans jump down your throat if you ship any of the cast.

“I thought I was young and cool but apparently I'm not anymore,” Mescal joked. “There's some new brilliant, brilliant actors on the block, and it's my huge honour to introduce these gentlemen. Joe and Kit were thrown into the limelight with Heartstopper, which we all fucking loved, right?” At which point the room erupted in whoops. “It's a huge honour for me to get to do this – you should be incredibly proud of what you've achieved and being the talented men that you are.”

Connor then stepped up to the mike first, reciprocating Mescal's kind words. “The fact that Paul has just introduced us is insane to me, literally over the last year I don't know how many times I watched Normal People, it changed my life. I was crying in my bedroom constantly.”

This is the most insane moment of my life,” Locke said. “This time two years ago I was sat in my bedroom in the Isle of Man thinking I was going to study law, and now I'm here."

He continued: “Heartstopper meant so much to us personally, and so much to a lot more people in the world than we thought it would, and it's been so great to have been a part of a show that's meant so much to people who felt they haven't seen themselves on screen. It's been the craziest year, and I can't think of anyone better to have shared it with than Kit.”

by Anonymousreply 190November 17, 2022 3:53 PM

R189 to be honest I think Yaz is just very about the self promotion more than purposefully slighting the others. Her Vogue article was good but did have some unintentionally funny moments - her announcing that her own role in Doctor Who was going to change the world, the writer trying to gently say she has a high self opinion and talks a lot about people praising her. The writer did also say he thought that was due to past experience - “She’s perhaps most visibly alive recalling praise. Rather than pure ego (although, justifiably, there is a little gloating) there’s a sense it provides an armour she had to go without as a vulnerable child.”

It would be nicer and more gracious for her to mention Joe and Kit but I get the sense she genuinely doesn’t even think to do it rather than trying to make a point

She will from a Whovian perspective be a companion even if it’s just a single episode so describing her as such is technically correct but my understanding from the start was she’s a companion for the specials only so they’ll be a different one ongoing But like other shorter term companions if it works well she could be back for a longer stint in a later series

Random, but I’m listening to a podcast that Chris Colfer is on right now and he brought up Kit’s coming out, said that basically the same thing happened to him back then with Glee and that he wanted to tweet support to Kit but didn’t want to be the old guy trying to get attention. Talks about how there’s still a lot of homophobia in the industry but says that all of the support Kit got shows how far the community has come.

R271 And That’s What You REALLY Missed, it’s a Glee podcast but this particular episode is, IMO, worth listening to because of how Chris (and Kevin) talk about their experiences as gay actors. Some of the things they talk about…Chris mentions at one point that casting people would call him a faggot to his face when he was auditioning for parts.

And when I was writing the scripts for season two [of Heartstopper], I suddenly thought, do teens still use the phrase ‘love bite’?

What has happened to teenagers?! Are they all this offended by sex these days? Or does HS just attract a bizarre group of them?! When I was 16-18, sex was the big topic. Who you fancied, what base you got too at house parties, who was sleeping with who. Which pop star you fancied and though was hot. I had posters of shirtless popstars all over my walls. That photo of Kit, we’d have all been drooling over.

by Anonymousreply 363November 20, 2022 5:56 PM

R363 I'd imagine that Heartstopper attracts a lot of quite sexually inexperienced people, based on how wholesome and innocent it is - I suspect a lot of them (the teenagers at least) haven't had sex themselves and so it seems like this big taboo thing. But the whole 'don't sexualise Kit' thing - the guy who posted a photo of himself flexing to millions of people - is annoying and unrealistic. Sure, don't tweet him saying you'd like to fuck his brains out, but he's eighteen and not stupid. He knew there'd be some people very 'enraptured' by the photo.

by Anonymousreply 364November 20, 2022 5:59 PM

I honestly don’t know what it is but being sexual puritans does seem more common in the younger generation, and with the Heartstopper fans they don’t seem to ever talk about sex which for supposedly hormonal teens seems just bizarre.

They definitely treat mention of sex or explicitly sexual attraction as something inherently sick or abusive instead of completely natural. They police among themselves not making sexual comments instead indulging in the most unbearable cutesy language about the cast effectively being a group of cuddly asexual teddy bears. I noticed some talk today about how offensive it was that one of the gift bags Joe and Kit got (from GQ or Attitude?) contained a sex toy.

There’s a real double standard where saying you are attracted to someone or find someone sexy is considered completely unacceptable, invasive and insulting but their own continued complete lack of boundaries and attempts to control and bully cast members is some kind of morally righteous crusade.

I hope it’s not typical across the whole generation because it really doesn’t seem psychologically healthy. Either they are all genuinely 12 year olds pretending to be young adults or it’s attracted an unusual and very puritan online fan base

R365 this younger generation does tend to be less sexually active than previous generations, primarily because teens spend so much more time talking to their friends online and less time with friends in person. Statistics like teen pregnancy are way down. I would imagine teens that spend most of their time on fan twitter are even less likely to have real life partners, and the PG nature of HS in general makes this fan base even more inexperienced. These teens self project onto the cast a lot. They personally would be very uncomfortable with strangers talking about them in a sexual way. So they hide their faces behind pictures of their favorite celebrities and imagine those celebrities are equally uncomfortable. Hopefully they’ll grow out of it and realize how naive they were in time. In the meantime, I find these crazy teens reaction to obvious thirst traps oddly entertaining.

I have to admit that I don't get the point of Bash ever having followed Trump given that the media obsessively updated everyone on whatever he said or did anyway, but I don't understand the obsession with monitoring who the cast follows and making judgment calls based on that. They've already browbeaten Kit into making a statement over someone he followed so I wouldn't be surprised if they get to Bash as well. Regardless, just like it never crossed my mind that Kit is a misogynist, I don't think Bash is a Tory.

The Marvel fans are worse than the Heartstopper fans. Blend the entitlement of the Heartstopper fans with a heavy dose of sexism and homophobia. The ones that aren't homophobic are holier-than-thou and don't want Joe playing a Jewish character. The Marvel fans are also the ones that are calling him ugly now.

R375 honestly, he was low key entertaining. I know he’s awful and terrible but as a gay man who is the son of undocumented immigrants myself at a certain point you laugh or infuriate yourself. He probably followed him to laugh at the inane dumb shit he said; covfefe etc.

R374 agreed and honestly I think Joe is a lot closer to just being blatant abt how little he gives a fuck about the fans’ opinion. His likes in defense of bash just pre marvel show that; I know he Unliked them but I think that was more a matter of timing than regretting he did that. Can’t wait for them both to be done with this fanbase of teenage hysterics

New Kit and Joe interview in THR’s Awards Special Issue. A couple of excerpts, link is the full thing:

The two of you clearly have a playful dynamic onscreen and off. How much work did that take?

CONNOR It’s one of those things where we were very much thrown into the deep end when we made it. We had two weeks of rehearsal. And then suddenly we started shooting. But we were quite lucky in that we tried to film it in chronological order, which was perfect.

LOCKE Chemistry is something you can’t fake. You can’t craft that — you can’t learn chemistry. It’s just there or it isn’t. I think that’s what has happened. Which is why I think it was so great they chose to film season one in sequence. That meant the awkward “hi’s” at the start of the series were equally as awkward between Kit and me as between Charlie and Nick. And as the season went on, our relationship grew.

That speaks to the earnestness that’s central to the show, which seems to also be teaching queer audiences, in particular, a lot about themselves. What have Nick and Charlie taught you through this entire process?

CONNOR Making Heartstopper was an extraordinarily important thing for me, in terms of my life and my identity. Being surrounded by strong, confident queer people — I can’t tell you how empowering it is.

LOCKE I think I always knew who I was. But Heartstopper told me to be proud of who I was and to not care as much [what people think]. I used to care a lot about what people and the world thought of me as a person, who I was, and how I lived my life. But having Heartstopper has just taught me not to care so much. To just be unapologetically who I am. I don’t think I would know who I am if I hadn’t gone through Heartstopper. I will always be grateful for that.

It’s interesting that all these interviews conducted before Kit’s coming out tweet (this and GQ) have him explicitly calling himself queer or part of the community. Not downplaying the tweet or his frustration and upset at all, but I’m glad that he didn’t feel forced “fully” out by it, if that makes any sense. Still absurd and frustrating re the wueerbaiting accusations but it seems like he had come to feel comfortable explicitly labeling himself queer anyway.

He and Joe are both very very strong and eloquent interviewers for their age.

Joe basically confirming Bash made the first move there, ha. It’s interesting to see how their self descriptions have changed over time. Kit’s increased comfort in calling himself queer is the obvious one, but Joe’s really interests me too. No reason to doubt Joe that he’s more confidently himself, and I’m glad he is, but I remember pre show he called himself an extrovert / much more extroverted Charlie and has now switched to saying he’s an introvert and that’s something he relates to in charlie. I guess to be fair growing up around the same people your whole life and enjoying their company feels quite distinct from meeting strangers all the time. He’s really lovely with fans, as are they all, but comes across much shyer with them than Bash or Kit for instance.

by Anonymousreply 402November 23, 2022 3:32 AM

I'm not one of people who My Fair Lady Joe, but just can't imagine him as a 17 year old from IOM making a move on someone like Bash and so quickly either, since they took zero time from meeting to being joined at the hip.

The introverted thing is interesting, but what you said makes sense. He might have felt extroverted growing up, but out in the bigger world he realizes he's not.

It’s how fucking strong Bash’s type is. Bash is super hot and clearly Joe is very attracted to him but Bash might well have cum on the spot when Joe, a pale skinny twink with curly dark hair and great bone structure, walked into the room.

Someone here had posted about Maia streaming on Twitch earlier and here's probably the most relevant Kit part. Maia was asked if she's in a relationship and gave another answer that sounds like she's casual and open with Kit. She doesn't directly answer, instead she says that she's very happy, the hosts asks if she's in a situationship, and then Maia sort of clarifies it by saying that she has a complex reality in terms of where/when/how, the host mentions that she travels a lot, Maia agrees and says that she finds ways to be happy and the hosts teases her that she finds ways to be happy in different places. Maia downplays it but makes a "yeah, basically" face. Here's the clip.

At least she's honest. I saw some comments about how they can't imagine Kit in an open relationship like people know him.

Just get the feeling she's not too into heteronormative relationships. Wouldn't expect anything too serious or dramatic with those two. They might hook up when they are close to each other, but for now seems like they both do their own thing. I doubt there will be any hard feelings either. So promotion for their movie shouldn't really be a problem.

by Anonymousreply 429November 24, 2022 8:07 AM

I haven’t seen those comments but they don’t surprise me and I imagine they’re primarily coming from women looking at it from a heteronormative lens. I’m guessing they think Kit comes off as a dog for being in an open relationship. I think it’s great that it looks like they’re in a relationship where they seem to be transparent and communicative about what they are and where they stand, but YMMV.

I’ve also said this on here before but I like that, along with Joe and Bash, they’re a little group of queer up-and-coming actors that are supportive of each other. I genuinely find it charming when Maia comments on Joe and Bash’s stuff hyping them up and reposts them on her stories. Kizzy seems fond of her, too.

by Anonymousreply 430November 24, 2022 8:38 AM

R426 Thanks for the translation! It did seem like an odd arrangement if it was any sort of monogamous, serious thing, what with them hardly ever being together. And I know that I don’t actually know either of them but as someone on here said, they seem to live such different lifestyles - Kit’s much more of an introverted homebody. He’s spotted out and about far less than Joe and Bash and is usually on his own.

I'm assuming Kit's out with non-famous friends at time that nobody knows/cares about. Though he does seem a lot more low key than her. But with Kit's a bit difficult to say how he really is. He's really kept his private life/personality pretty private. It's why I think fans can't stop thinking he's Nick Nelson for real since he doesn't give much away.

R433 Yeah that’s true, he is quite hard to work out! All we can really say for sure is that he’s quite introverted but has a dry sense of humour, he’s gentle and kind, and he sometimes semi-hides insecurities under acting ‘cool’ and nonchalant. He gave almost nothing away at all in the vlogs.

by Anonymousreply 434November 24, 2022 9:20 AM

As we’re gossiping I always had a suspicion there was a boyfriend at some point and maybe that report from Pride was just simple truth.

For what it’s worth I never believed he was with Sof either I just can’t imagine with all the advisors and counsellors around them they would have let him outright lie it made no sense. If he got caught lying about a relationship with a girl he’d have been toast, he just did no comment with Maia. I always suspected there was a boyfriend in the background almost certainly still at school as well and that was another reason he was so protective of his privacy.

The fallout with Sof still tracks she would happily be a bff if he was dating a boy but Maia? I can’t see that going down well. We’ve all known girls like that.

Just my theory

by Anonymousreply 435November 24, 2022 11:47 AM

I kind of have a theory on that as well. With the way everyone in Kit's circle (famous and non-famous) unfollowed her, with Bash unfollowing her [italic]on her birthday[/italic], and with her following modeling agencies, I've theorized that it was less a break-up and more that Kit figured out that she was chasing a bit of clout via the attention he was getting. None of his other friends were posting pictures of themselves with Kit and other cast members or tagging all of their TikToks with his name and with the name of the show. His circle (apart from Sof) was and is very, very low-key and I think that's by design.

I also agree with you about the unlikelihood of outright lying about his relationship with Sof. They both stuck to the friends thing from beginning to end really solidly.

The other thing is, they were never spotted together romantically. Kit was caught holding hands with Maia really quickly and he didn't shy away from it even at Disney, where he knew he was around fans that recognized him. And you're telling me no one [italic]ever[/italic] spotted him with Sof being even remotely amorous in Croydon? Or when they went to Paris and were stalked to their hotel?

by Anonymousreply 436November 24, 2022 12:04 PM

R436 Hmm interesting - I’m on the fence with the Sof thing. I didn’t think they were dating at all earlier on (when everyone else on here was convinced they were) but it was only when the whole unfollowing thing happened - which just so happened to be close to the time that he met Maia - that I wondered if it might’ve been a relationship. He doesn’t seem to have many/any other female friends from before HS that we’ve come across? I agree that they may well have cut ties because of her chasing attention, but I half think they were together. Didn’t she post some stuff vaguely hinting that she’d been ‘burned’ or whatever, around that time?

I suspect that Kit has had some experience with a guy, for him to come out so publicly as bisexual. Not that you need to be with men and women to confirm, but it certainly does help!

R438 someone commented on the deuxmoi sub that they had messaged her saying Kit and Bash (eyeroll especially on the second one) had never come out. I honestly stick by the other guy / potential boyfriend being Connor, primarily because the person was fully confident Bash and Joe were together as they were kissing and cuddling etc. Given how physically affectionate he’s been with Maia fully in public, I doubt he was in a more private VIP tent at a pride event with a boyfriend and wouldn’t do something that would signify they were definitely non platonic. The arm around one another/tight hugging etc he and Connor have done in the past lines up more to me, especially as the person didn’t mention recognizing Connor and likely thought “hot guy of comparable age hanging out with Kit but not in the cast = likely boyfriend.” Think it’s very plausible he’s had a boyfriend or male relationship in the past as he has played the pronoun game but that specific incident I think was Connor.

by Anonymousreply 441November 24, 2022 12:44 PM

R438 Fans got mad about it and DM her.

I also still think the "boyfriend" was Connor. Though maybe they were flirtier behind the scenes. The person still said I think, so it wasn't like 100% like with Joe and Bash. Just not sure Kit would bring a boyfriend out in public like that while not being out. Though do tend to agree that he wasn't dating Sof. Joe hasn't denied dating Bash. Kit hasn't denied dating Maia. They just won't admit it. He flat out denied dating Sof.

Though I think the unfollow was probably more than just she was a clout chaser, she had always been like that. Something teenage dramatic probably happen. Or he could have asked her to cool it and she wouldn't so he just cut her off. It's interesting the first person to unfollow her was Will and Kit's closest to him.

R440 I remember that and then they said it was fake anyway since how could the person know that was Joe's mom. Maybe because they have the same face. And it was a fan.

R449 I think even the contingent that insists bash and Joe might just be friends have to admit bash is clearly queer (they refuse to say gay, but whatever). He’s been so blatant about it it would be legitimately offensive to not say he’s at least that. I do wonder if part of Bash not outright saying “I’m gay” or “coming out” officially (because he’s pretty blatant about it in interviews and the tshirts without outright announcing) is a continuation of his and Joe’s semi privacy, knowing that an “official coming out” would invite speculation. If at some point they decide to be more open I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see him casually acknowledging he’s gay right around the same time

I’m really not sure it’s that deep with Bash and coming out I think he’s just never been in or hidden anything so any kind of official confirmation or statement would just be clunky, awkward as hell and definitely unnecessary.

If anyone ever asked I imagine he’d give a clear answer but who would even ask such a dumb question aside from teen girls with no grasp on reality?

R457 you’d be surprised, even a fair few DL commenters call him “half closeted”. I think he presumes people know. His mum likes tweets calling him gay, he’s liked and posted things on IG stories in the past about specifically the gay community and being gay men, and is very obviously dating his male costar. I think there will always be people in denial or who think without an explicit “confirmation” he’s maybe not out, but I agree it’s quite blatant

At times like this, one really gets to see the difference in how the Heartstopper fans treat Joe and how they treat Kit. If it had been Kit, all of them would have rallied together to drown this mess but as its Joe who is on the recieving end, I'm barely seeing any 'fans' talk about this.

by Anonymousreply 466November 24, 2022 9:46 PM

While I semi-agree that Kit is the general fan favourite, I feel like the conversation on these forums lately has been 'people shit on Joe and Bash but love Kit' constantly going round and round. They all get hate, they all have to deal with fandom nonsense. Joe and Bash probably do get it a bit worse, but I also think there's an element of projection from some people on the forum - wanting to protect the openly gay guys. Like I've said before, Kit gets far more hate on this forum than Joe and Bash - particularly before he came out.

Not one of those big accounts had a word to say. Actually the only ones who did also brought up Kit into it for some random reason. They'd lose their shit if Kit was treated like that or if fans treated Kit like they do Bash (cropping him out, putting something over his face).

Tons of fans have been furious on Joe's behalf on social media. The person who keeps bringing up how Kit is treated whenever anything happens with Joe obviously cares more about shitting on Kit than about Joe himself.

Or Kit and queerbaiting. Stop talking about it.

by Anonymousreply 481November 24, 2022 10:31 PM

To be fair I also think a lot of the current fandom defensiveness of Kit is honest to god people want to talk about themselves and complain but want to come across as selfless or raising awareness so they use kit. The vast majority of HS Twitter users identify as broadly queer or bi rather than gay. I have seen literally 20x as many tweets complaining about biphobia than complaining about homophobia for instance (example linked). So I definitely agree Kit is preferred / babied / defended a lot more than Joe and bash in the broad sense but I also do think a fair few of them bring him up not because they are invested in his situation at that moment but because they want to indirectly make it about themselves. Of course biphobia exists and kit has experienced it but it’s discussed at a crazily disproportionate rate on HS Twitter, especially considering how blatantly homophobic a lot of the hate Joe gets is.

I would hope they don’t really if they had been paying attention and read twitter more than they should they would know that many of the hardcore fangirls who were at the last one were very much part of the mob that went after Joe and Bash. I’ve noticed Bash is now completely cancelled among the big accounts no profile pictures or mentions of his name even his previous superfans, and many of them have erased Joe almost as completely.

I understand the psychology of the mob and mass hysteria but I still can’t quite process how two such completely sweet, decent and liberal young men have been cancelled over a mix of things that never happened and some perceived moral impurity.

Being chronically online clearly does remove any sense of perspective and turns some people into the most viciously entitled and delusional monsters

It’s interesting that Joe has hundreds of followers on his finsta and Kit only has 52. I guess it fits with Kit being an introvert - and/or he’s very careful with who he allows access to.

This is more deductive reasoning than fact, but right now I'm going with no finsta for Bradley because Lelia would be following it if it existed.

Interesting choice. Good for her though I join others in not quite thinking her performance as Elle merits this. Out of curiosity has anyone seen her short film; if so how was she in it?

R554 Yes it seems no coincidence that the twitter searches have been very quiet of late then they blow up as soon as something is posted here.

I’ve also had the disconcerting experience of thinking I was in a normal conversation and suddenly the whole thread degenerates into a mind numbing twitter spat and I realise I had been talking to, or at least been stalked by, overwrought fan girls all along.

I thought they might have left these threads with the recent quiet but they’re clearly more persistent lurkers than I gave them credit for

R562 Didn’t watch it because you apparently have to pay and I don’t care enough about her for that, but I saw this clip and she’s…there? Her acting reminds me of Selena Gomez where it’s monotonous and any attempt at a spark of emotion is wooden.

Interesting how they both now seem to blur their backgrounds, probably to prevent forensic fangirls assessing every detail.

R564 thanks! Yeah didn’t do much to shift my perspective honestly.

Interview about to drop, it seems! Is this gonna be the Netflix one with the Twitter questions? Would be weird to do over Zoom but you never know.

I’m looking forward to them doing press again. I enjoyed a lot of the interviews they did after season 1. They have clearly gotten closer since then so hopefully they allow their personalities to shine through and have fun doing press.

Here’s the interview - haven’t watched it all yet but Kit says ‘we (bisexual people) really don’t get that much representation’. I’m assuming this interview was after he came out, in that case.

Kit really doesn’t need to be worried about public speaking and saying he’s rubbish etc - he’s so eloquent for his age. They both are.

by Anonymousreply 570November 29, 2022 12:38 AM

Kit explicitly calling himself bI and talking about the queer community on set - nice he feels so comfortable and proud of his identity and I’m glad for him that the show did that.

Interesting quote from Joe about putting more of himself into Charlie than he might have liked to (paraphrasing). Do genuinely think that filming self hatred and body dysmorphic scenes this season might be a bit of a mind fuck given the looks based hate he’s gotten and how it’s impacted him. Obviously I’m sure the show got in coaches and experts but even people without EDs or body image issues have said playing anorexics did mind fuck them for a bit.

I hope someone else uploads the interview because the way it cuts off feels like a glitch? Also, hope this lands well with the CCA because I’d love to see them nominated.

R573 oh interesting. Kit got way better questions to be fair so if one lands it I’m guessing it’ll be him. Nick had a more showy storyline and he played it well, so while I hope both get in either would deserve it

by Anonymousreply 574November 29, 2022 4:01 AM

The guy mostly ignored Joe

by Anonymousreply 575November 29, 2022 4:03 AM

It would have helped if, like Joe implied, we didn't all have to collectively act like clueless idiots when it comes to Charlie's storyline because Netflix and Alice are worried about spoilers for a web comic that's been out for years. That being said, even Kit getting in alone would be helpful to Joe next season. If the show is shut out entirely its first season it's near impossible to get into awards for subsequent seasons. Having a foot in would help once Joe starts getting the more dramatic material.

The bit where Kit says that they were able to create a beautiful queer group of people that they deeply love by working on the show was very sweet.

by Anonymousreply 577November 29, 2022 8:48 AM

R577 Yeah, loved that! I wonder if he was implying that all/at least most of the cast are queer in that case? He didn’t say a group of queer people and allies.

I personally still think Will isn’t straight.

by Anonymousreply 578November 29, 2022 9:36 AM

Alice is saying how exhausted she is on Tumblr again. Come onnnnn, I’m sure you’re tired but people have way harder jobs. I feel like she isn’t used to the full-time daily grind.

by Anonymousreply 579November 29, 2022 9:45 AM

One comment would be enough, it’s the fact she keeps going on and on about it, she’s not a surgeon working 14 hours a day to save lives. She needs to get a bit of perspective

by Anonymousreply 580November 29, 2022 10:47 AM

R571 I hope it doesn't fuck with him too much. It reminds me of how Chris Colfer came out years after Glee ended to say how hurtful it was that the writers wrote some of his own traits and quirks into the show just to insult and belittle his character for them. Thankfully I doubt Alice will throw in anything about his ears and Joe seems like someone who is naturally thin and not someone who has suffered from an eating disorder.

R578 I'm not sure which way Will swings, but it's weird to me that everyone assumes he has a girlfriend because Kit follows a girl's locked account or whatever someone was saying on here. There's been no real evidence of girlfriends or boyfriends.

R579 Someone should force Alice to work a 9-5 retail job for a month and see how she likes that.

by Anonymousreply 581November 29, 2022 12:12 PM

Admittedly I don't know much about writing being an accounting major who works 9-5, but I just don't understand how it's that difficult to adapt a story she already wrote ages ago. There's a few new storylines, but the bulk of it should be easy to zip through. I think she might be struggling with how to end the comic and the show with S3, but still... HS is not the most difficult thing in the world to write. But she's very very rich very privileged white woman and should have shut up about how exhausted she is ages ago.

by Anonymousreply 582November 29, 2022 12:21 PM

R581 if I remember correctly someone posted on a “big” fan account’s CC originally that they knew Will or his gf in real life and her name. Then when people searched that first name they realized a load of the cast followed her, Sof followed her, Will’s sister, etc. i do think she’s likely his girlfriend as even some of his costars from the Trials follow her but of course he could well be queer, bi, whatever anyway.

by Anonymousreply 583November 29, 2022 12:26 PM

R578 They definitely are we have Joe, Bash, Tobie, Kit, Yaz, Kizzy, Bradley, Jenny, Fisayo and of course most if not all of the crew and creatives. That leaves Will and Cori are the two big unknowns but with or without them most of the cast are for certain queer

by Anonymousreply 584November 29, 2022 12:35 PM

And of course Alice takes issue with something else. Here she is vague tweeting (vague Tumblring?) about this Guardian article. If they’re so proud of being asexual, normalising it, etc. I’m not sure why they expect it to be off limits when they wrote a whole book about it, and this interviewer handled it very respectfully and legitimately just quoted them on the subject. As the interviewer and the newspaper - especially as the Guardian which is well regarded - I would be pretty peeved by this tweet and more or less burn that bridge with her, which isn’t great for s writer of middling at best skill and not much of a compelling personality. Her PR person and agent must have a hell of a time managing her incredible oversensitivity and ego.

R585 the article above

by Anonymousreply 586November 29, 2022 12:41 PM

R585 She's bitching on tumblr and not under her actual name, so probably not too many people paying attention. Not exactly sure what's wrong with that interview anyway. The person even suggested she could be the big celeb who changes how people view asexuals (since apparently this is a very pressing issue) and was very glowing from start to finish.

by Anonymousreply 587November 29, 2022 12:49 PM

r584 Is Jenny queer? I didn’t realize.

r585 Her being asexual is never treated as humorous and the only time anything is referred to as weird is IN HER OWN WORDS and has nothing to do with her sexuality. What is she even going on about?

by Anonymousreply 588November 29, 2022 12:54 PM

R588 I was just about to ask the same - hadn’t heard any mention of Jenny being queer.

by Anonymousreply 589November 29, 2022 1:23 PM

R585 That is a really benign, respectful and as far as I can tell completely supportive and positive article. It’s also unusual for the Guardian who have a notoriously terfy editorial line to allow her to discuss anti trans attacks unopposed when it’s probably a dig at them. I don’t know why she’s trying to make an enemy of them when it was an opportunity to get an ongoing positive trans discussion in that paper and I have no idea what she’s managed to take offence at.

I can only assume her comprehension skills and hair trigger outrage reaction is as dysfunctional as the online fan base and she somehow managed to read the line about her “weird hobby” of writing comics in her bedroom becoming her job as asexuality being weird. The more I see of her the more insufferably whiny and self absorbed she seems to be.

The cast especially Joe and Bash seem to have a good relationship with her so I’ll be generous and assume she must be a lot nicer in person than she comes across online

by Anonymousreply 590November 29, 2022 1:32 PM

R590 Joe and Bash (the whole cast but those two and Tobie especially) honestly seem remarkably tolerant of or maybe entertained by self centered personalities. Joe is the closest in the cast to Yaz, the two of them are the closest to Alice, both seem quite tolerant of Rhys (as does Tobie). Maybe they find the melodrama funny

by Anonymousreply 591November 29, 2022 1:40 PM

R589 I’d read reference to the speech some of the cast did on the stage at Pride where she used we/our when referring to the lgbt+ community. It makes sense she was noticeably front and centre at Pride while Rhea who was also there and presumably straight stayed much more in the background. I assumed it was known though she generally doesn’t get talked about online much

by Anonymousreply 592November 29, 2022 1:41 PM

R590- She's the one who said weird hobby, not them. They just quote her. I'm seriously confused why she's upset. You could be right and she has the same reading comprehension skills as most HS fans. Last week there was a tweet about S2 being out before the end of next year and everyone took it as not coming out until the end 2023 and started crying.

Need a new thread soon. Almost 600 posts.
