Haha, I thought something dramatic must have happened when I woke up to 130+ new messages in the HS thread, but it was just everyone rating the cast’s hotness. Fun to read. A welcome change from constantly bringing Twitter crap over here!

No one asked, but I’ll give a woman’s ranking for contrast. I’m queer and mostly attracted to women but occasionally men. For the men, I’d say Will - Kit (although it does depend on what his hair’s doing) - Bash - Kizzy - Joe - Tobie.

I love Joe and think he has lots going for him looks wise - strong jaw line, great hair, nice lips, really good skin. But I tend to like soft features and, being honest, I find his eyebrows too much (and I guess his ears). He doesn’t have particularly soft features and I just think the thick eyebrows make everything too heavy and are always the first thing I notice in a photo. But that’s just personal preference… he’s obviously very popular with gay guys which is very cool.

R10 that’s funny because as a man I think Joe is very soft featured and pretty. His eyebrows seem to only need about three hairs between great and too close together. I thought they were too close for ages recently (is was shit that HS Makeup didn’t fix it) but the groom he got for the Emmy’s was amazing. Perfect distance apart and best they’ve looked

R21 Kit is 100% an introvert, he’s described himself as one multiple times and the signs are all there. He’s probably become a bit more socially confident over time, and he’s also talked about the ‘confident persona’ that he’s had to develop in his working world.

Kit looks really good in green. I think Brady or whoever he works with should work with him on a facial hair shape. I actually think the stubble (not present here) works for him and makes him look more mature if it’s shaped for his bone structure and not on his neck too

It’s quite interesting watching the livestream with Kit chatting to people. He does come across as very personable, a good listener etc. Can catch glimpses of nervousness when he’s on his own. It’s also interesting (but not surprising) how so many people in the crowd are taking photos or glued to their phones, but I haven’t seen Kit even look at his phone once, which is very refreshing for an 18-year-old.

R25 I t’s quite funny because from early interviews onward while they were both very personable and funny, I immediately thought both Joe and Kit were introverts. Especially seeing people like Cori and Kizzy alongside them who are blatant extroverts. Then Joe said he was an extrovert and I thought maybe my read was off, but sure enough in the past few months he’s started saying he’s introverted and an “extroverted introvert” which is probably a good description of both of them.

I’m genuinely really curious to see who from the cast breaks out, who continues being a working actor, and who fades after the show.

by Anonymousreply 76January 21, 2023 2:38 PM

I mean I think Joe’s visibility is given for at least the next six to ten years. Kit is obviously absolutely adored by straight women and girls so he’s locked in as a money spinner. This isn’t to take from their talent. I think they’re both great but practically Marvel and being a teen heartthrob will give you a fair bit of longevity

by Anonymousreply 77January 21, 2023 2:43 PM

Just by virtue of Marvel, in the end I think Joe's going to be the most famous among them. Kit will do well, but might end up being more low profile but more award winning perhaps, that is after he gets a little older and the teens move on. I think Bash does well too, though might not ever have some huge Hollywood break out role, but will have steady work. The rest, not too sure. I think Will focuses more on music or theater and Yaz will always get party invites, but not sure she's going to get huge roles since honestly her acting is pretty weak.

Then someone random will probably do well too in some supporting character role.

by Anonymousreply 78January 21, 2023 2:46 PM

R78 honestly, I think Kit will end up in Marvel at some point. Or maybe the new DC universe. He’s seemed pretty keen on the action style roles in interviews and he’s pretty hot right now. I don’t think that just because nothing has been announced doesn’t mean he’s not already lined something like that up

by Anonymousreply 79January 21, 2023 2:48 PM

R79 He could, but Wiccan's just a bigger deal than anything Kit might play. Even Hulkling is basically just known as Wiccan's big green husband

R80 I think he’ll be right - he’s making some fairly impressive connections and he’s talented. I hope the movie isn’t bad. That wouldn’t be the greatest start in adult roles

by Anonymousreply 81January 21, 2023 3:03 PM

One of the things that makes me think Kit and Joe will do really well, aside from their work and the roles they have lined up, is that neither rests on their laurels. I know people felt bad for Kit that he said he cringed at his own acting sometimes (to me it seemed half true, half jokingly exaggerated) but while I hope he and Joe are proud of themselves, they’ve both made similar “healthily” self critical remarks. Kit has pointed out some scenes he genuinely liked but said others he goes “oh why did I do it like that” and Joe said that rewatching it he sees his weak parts and parts where he put too much of himself into Charlie. Being open to that critique and self critique means they’ll both grow as actors as opposed to staying stagnant as good teen actors but mediocre adults.

by Anonymousreply 82January 21, 2023 3:05 PM

R81 Even if it's bad I think Kit will do well enough and get good reviews. The movie rests on Maia, not him. He just plays the charming love interest, which everyone knows he can do. And I don't think people are going to consider it an adult role anyway

by Anonymousreply 83January 21, 2023 3:09 PM

I think the Agatha project should be good, but Marvel's in a weird place right now where fatigue is starting to set in and that's partly why Feige's slowing down the studio's output. If Phase 4/5/6 come together it'll be fine, but right now the only project that's hit in the last year is Wakanda Forever. Either way, Joe's involvement is great for visibility and hopefully they don't fuck up Wiccan. The other advantage is that the Disney+ actors aren't being reduced to their Marvel role and their Marvel role only (like a lot of the Avenger actors, for example).

R79 Grace did say Marvel met with him and she's been pretty spot-on so far, but they have so many projects in development that who knows what it's for or how far down the line it is.

R81 My feeling is that it'll wind up being a YA thing that comes out on a streamer and doesn't help or harm him either way. Maia's really the one that needs the push from it more than Kit.

by Anonymousreply 84January 21, 2023 3:14 PM

Just before Joe's role in Marvel was announced everyone was saying he wasn't booking anything like Kit and Bash had, even messaging his agent if I remember correctly, and then he got announced for the biggest role of all of them, I get the feeling that will happen with Kit, it will look like he's chilling before season 2 of HS and then he will be announced for something big

by Anonymousreply 98January 21, 2023 5:42 PM

Rumoured plot:

Translated bits

In the first two episodes, his name is Nicholas, Agatha's adopted son. At the end of episode 3, we learn that his birth name is Billy Kaplan as he searches for his birth parents with his boyfriend. However, Agatha doesn't care that Wanda's son was also named Billy.

• Billy and Tommy are basically reincarnations of two mythical beings and they both reside in New Jersey. Wanda used their energy to create the twins in Westview, so technically Wanda Vision's were the "reincarnations" and the originals already existed.

• We only know that Billy is related to Wanda because she says, based on her readings of the Demiurge, in addition to the Mephisto's monologue. Agatha's main concern in the last episode is Billy, and no longer his fame or being a "heroine".

• In Episode 2, a rebellious Billy tries to defy his mother (Agatha) and make a scene in a mall, to the dismay of Agatha, who wants to protect your reputation and fame in Westview.

• Here, Billy is not the completely sweet boy from the comics. He has a rebellious spirit and his antics at the mall end up getting him into legal trouble, but Agatha releases him using her fame.

⚫ He is a fanboy of the Scarlet Witch and, in the first episodes, Agatha tries to reconcile with him. At this moment, nobody knows that he is related to the Scarlet Witch or that he is the Wiccan.

⚫ Agatha, Wanda and Billy form a family at the end of the series. They are not the focus of Vision Quest, but Tommy is.

They are so young. It’s impossible to say if any of them will be massive stars. I massively dislike superhero movies but I assume a Marvel role will be at least some what notable & fans & opportunities will come from it so long as he does a good job. But you can break out anytime. It takes one role. Look at Hunter Doohan from Wednesday. He had nothing much until he was 28. And suddenly he’s got 4 million Insta followers, fan pages for days, invited to fashion shows in multiple countries & a lot of praise for the role he played. You couldn’t have predicted it.

R94 He could be there or in London I guess. His social media isn't giving many hints one way or the other. Though he could still go to the Maison Margiela show tomorrow I guess. Bash has gone to JW Anderson shows before, but not sure Loewe? Figured he'd get an invite anyway since it's a gay paradise. I wouldn't be too surprised if he's got something coming up and is just laying low after the dumb drama.

R98 yeah - she’s full of shit. Convinced she just said that to make a connection with him that wasn’t creepy and now uses it cover not to be called a tragic fangirl. I know that we are aiming for no Twitter but gotta jump on and say how disgusting she is. And the way she just ignores Joe. We get it - you’re a straight girl obsessed with a teen idol who is a attractive in a very heteronormative way (no shade to kit - not his fault that he’s hot in a way that straight girls understand)

Thinking out loud here, but part of me wouldn't be surprised if Kit gets invited to the Met Gala. Based on Heartstopper alone I would say none of the cast would get an invite, but Kit's seems to be fostering a pretty solid relationship with Jonathan Anderson between his support of Loewe (front row at two shows, attended the Loewe Foundation dinner) and JW Anderson (a show, wearing them in GQ). I could envision him getting an invite to Loewe's table this spring.

R119 Yaz is the most likely demographically to be honest. kit and Joe seem to have comparable shots to me; Kit has a good relationship with Loewe but even bigger celebrities are desperate for a met gala invite so loewe might hold off on him for a year or two. Wouldn’t be totally shocked to see any of the above 3 there, but also wouldn’t be surprised if none attended

R119 I’d be pretty shocked to be honest. While he may have good relationship with Anderson every attendee goes past Anna for approval. I just don’t know that he’s had enough impact in the US or enough recognition for his style for an invite. I’m also not really sure why you see Kit getting an invite over Joe who also has very strong relationships with Dior and McQueen and just happens to be working right now… but okay

Maybe, but i don’t think so tbh. I’m not sure if Loewe buys a table at the met, other brands within lvmh do but i don’t remember if they do. If they do, yeah i could definitely see him going if invited. Unfortunately, Anna still controls the guest list so if she doesn’t approve he wouldn’t go. Then again, she has been approving people who i thought would never get an invite soo..

by Anonymousreply 131January 21, 2023 10:26 PM

R130 I would just ignore the bitter queen. I also think Yaz a lock and Kit actually more likely than Joe to pop up this year. Looking at previous years Dior and McQueen have really massive names so Joe’s relationship with them probably doesn’t push him high enough up the list. Loewe dress Dan Levy two years ago so up and coming stars more likely to get an invite from them (with Anna’s approval obviously)

by Anonymousreply 132January 21, 2023 10:28 PM

R125 I think you've been spending too much time on Twitter if you're reading my comment as a slight against Joe. The comment came about because I was looking at Kit on Getty Images and noticed all of the Loewe/JW Anderson events and remembered he wore JW Anderson in GQ. He has a stronger tie with a specific designer than Joe and Yaz right now. That was it. By the way, the same Anna Wintour went from having a strict ban on influencers to letting them go to the Met Gala. Netflix show stars have also been invited previously; Nicola Coughlan went with Richard Quinn last year. I'm not saying it'll happen, I'm saying I could see it happening. And the comment about not expecting Heartstopper people before I noticed the Kit stuff was because Heartstopper wasn't a hit in the US, not because I think Joe and Yaz aren't worthy or something.

R129 Yes, and that's definitely why I left a comment in the last thread just last night saying, and I quote: "I think Joe deserves to be appreciated somewhere so I refuse to say anything negative about him." Give me a break.

Joe is likely to get an invite the year agatha is out and to be able to “sustain the momentum”, aka get multiple invites. Being the first big out gay marvel star and let’s face it, having a high fashion look (no offense to the Phastos actor) will serve him well, and given his work with marvel will be over multiple years and holly and designers like him a lot, he’ll be able to continue going for a while if he wants to.

Kit just isn’t “famous enough” to get looks that suit him yet. He’s smart to go anyway and develop the relationship. He is someone who just looks better in more classic things and things that show his build, but unless you’re extremely tiny like Joe or can pull off looks like Omar or Will (and I do think Kit wouldn’t pull off what he has on, though nor would 90% of the population) you are stuck with what designers hand you a lot of the time until you bank up enough fame for better looks. That being said Harry Lambert is, as someone else said, a war criminal, so Kit may come out looking better at a fair few events due to that

Omar looked gorgeous bar the god awful sunglasses. Yikes. Omar is very definition of a pretty face, don’t hide it behind terrible glasses boy!

I agree Kit just hasn’t quite settled on his style yet. He doesn’t quite have the face or body for these high fashion, ultra quirky looks. It works on skinny, narrow shouldered, petite boys or boys who are not so ‘boyish’. Kit is someone I’d call a proper boy. He’s thicker set, broader, stockier and day to day, his clothes are typical teenage lad. Joggers, plain white tee, hoody. Kit will morph into someone akin to Russel Tovey as he matures I recon. Gym honed, muscly, really masculine. He just needs to settle into what he feels comfortable in, maybe slightly less of the quirk but still looking super stylish.

R157 I thought Kit looked gorgeous at the Attitude awards (2022!) so he definitely can look very high fashion when styled correctly. The problem with the shows is they get a bunch of clothes thrown at them that their stylists have to make work. I think Omar probably got that look option because he’s got a bit of a trashy euro vibe (in the best possible way).

Its' like the whole picture with the cast after The Trials. Is that woman weird? Yes, but the cast didn't give a shit and took a fun picture for her. But fans made up some crazy ass stories about how she cornered them while they were drunk and vulnerable and stalked them. Also turns out Will was the one who told them where they were

by Anonymousreply 188January 22, 2023 7:12 PM

R186 he regularly walks around and takes the Tube in London without any issues; he gets mobbed outside his hotel on the way to and from shows. But that is not unusual so I don’t know why they want him to be a victim so badly all the time. He is waited for outside shows and his hotel like most other celebrities there. Weirdly the Young Royals fandom is much more sensible about this, they pointed out that interrupting Edvin’s holiday wasn’t good but showing you’re a big fan of a celebrity getting fashion invites (as they did with Omar) helps them if anything, since they’re really invited to tap into their influence and fanbase. Obviously fans take it over the line sometimes but it’s never seemed to me Kit gets significantly more mobbed that the rest of the cast

Fhe HS fandom has a weird fixation on babying and worrying for Kit which must be annoying as shit for him. They still “fight” every troll who says he’s queerbaiting, insist he looks tired and anxious and needs sleep from stress, fret that he’s under too much pressure. It must be incredible weird and annoying to be seen as a delicate flower about to snap when he and Joe both seem relatively Hardy considering how much shit they get

Not that there isn’t a place for asexual stories they are not represented much in the media so fair enough but not in the 8 short crowded episodes of this series with the actors of the lead relationship turning out to be break out charismatic money spinners with off the scale chemistry I just can’t imagine it going down well.

It is possible that was at least some of the stress the story arc was clearly very important to her and she talked it up a lot to fans but I really can’t see them having the space for a lot of screen time or the audience interest beyond the puritan hardcore fan girls.

She also said she introduced Isaac in the first place to replace the original asexual friend in the comics (whose name escapes me) precisely because she felt they didn’t have the space to do justice to his story so trying to then crowbar at least part of it in anyway through Isaac doesn’t seem the cleverest move

R214 I think the thing with the friend character Aled is he has his own book which weirdly Charlie and the rest of the friend group don’t feature in, so she wanted to preserve the storyline there. I’m guessing she wanted to spin out sside characters more and also potentially that Joe and/or Kit let it be known they only intend to do 3 seasons, so she had pressure to cram in more storyline than she intended to for S2

by Anonymousreply 215January 23, 2023 12:42 AM

Not inviting Isaac to the milkshake cafe in s1 simply because he’s single could have made him feel left out. With all his friends coupling up, he could be left out a lot. A short conversation explaining that he’s asexual and doesn’t want to date anyone, but also doesn’t want to constantly be excluded from large group activities seems like an important conversation to have. But it’s a one minute conversation. There you go, realistic asexual representation.

R216 what’s ironic is for all that I roll my eyes at all the asking for even more rep fans do online, I agree that adding little bits of colour in that take 15 seconds would both fill out the storylines more realistically and add the rep people want. In the comics Elle is Egyptian and I think Muslim. Throwing in a line about her fasting for Ramadan and declining Tao’s mums treats would be smart. Something like the above about the asexuality would be good. Charlie explaining he can’t speak Spanish because his mum feels left out and doesn’t like the kids knowing a language she doesn’t would be in character for her relationship and make more sense than the convoluted backstory Alice gives.

I do hope they lean into the fact that Kit likely won’t be good at French and have some line about how he’s pretty mubb cvs fluent but because his dad left when he was young his accent is atrocious

by Anonymousreply 217January 23, 2023 12:51 AM

Yeah, it doesn’t even have to be that deep. Sometimes, even when you’re raised with the language, you can have the comprehension of a fluent person but the accent just isn’t there. I have family members like that, where we talk to them in Spanish and they understand, but reply in English because their accents embarrass them.

R247 While that is v cute, it (probably immaturely) vaguely irks me that he rarely leave the same kind of complimentary/cheerleading comments on Joe's posts, even though Joe (up until very recently) was thirst/sweet commenting on Kit's stuff all over the place.

R256 That would make sense, but he doesn't seem to care because he'll do things like sway with his arms wrapped around him at a convention, call him darling in front of fans, be flirty with him in interviews. So not sure if he's bothered about that side of things. He's obviously fond of Joe but I have always noticed his slight lack of social media interaction/warmth with him than other costars like Will or Bash. (Not trying to put forward some sort of suggestion that they secretly hate each other.)

R258 to be fair it’s possible that level of flirting online would draw attention to them in buzzfeed “why Kit and Joe are the real life Nick and Charlie” kind of way. A lot of that irl stuff is only seen by big fans and us

by Anonymousreply 259January 23, 2023 8:25 PM

I'm glad the fans haven't affected them to the point where they become less affectionate with each other in person. I don't really read much into Kit's banter with Will on social media versus his comments about everyone else given that he also didn't go around commenting on Maia stuff (articles, photoshoots) when they were (are?) together. And to be fair, Kit swaying with Joe seemed like something they did automatically without much thought and I think they were told they weren't being recorded when he called Joe darling, so they might not have realized they were being recorded between pictures, especially with it being their first con.

by Anonymousreply 260January 23, 2023 8:28 PM

R256 will say that while as primarily a Joe fan I always want him to get nice comments, the majority of the Kit/Bash/Will thirst comments to each other back and forth have been in the past few months since the show came out, and while I’m sure they do all think the other looks good, it is jokey and tongue in cheek. Given Joe got absolutely hounded and slaughtered over his looks right as the show came out, could be kit doesn’t feel comfortably joking about his looks even if it’s a positive joke thirst comment. Could just be reading into it, but that’s one possibility

by Anonymousreply 261January 23, 2023 8:33 PM

R261 I’m no shipper but I think it’s a given Kit thinks Joe is attractive. They way the interact with each other is how you interact with your hot friends imo. But maybe not strongly his type? Though he does seem to lean towards brunettes!

by Anonymousreply 262January 23, 2023 8:40 PM

R262 I'm not R261 but that's interesting cos I actually get the impression that Kit doesn't find Joe attractive (not to say he finds him ugly). Not much to go on other than the fact that he's made blatant 'you're attractive/hot' type comments on Will and Bash's photos before, but I don't think that he's ever outwardly said anything complimentary about Joe's looks. He once commented the thirst/sweating emoji but that's not quite the same. I find it hard to work out if he just holds back with compliments towards Joe for whatever reason (wanting to avoid shippers, feels weird because of Bash, feels weird because they play a couple on screen etc) or if he's just a genuine person and wouldn't say 'you're hot' etc if he didn't really mean it.

Kit isn’t blind, even if Joe’s not his type I’m sure he finds him objectively attractive and Vice versa.

R265 I agree. Joe’s last one saying Kit was hot was on the GQ article I think and he got crickets. Love Kit but it would have been nice to share some love there and if he didn’t respond to that it was never going to happen. Joe’s clearly got that now and is embracing Bradley’s thirst

by Anonymousreply 269January 23, 2023 8:58 PM

R269 Yeah, agreed. Just to add to my original comment about all this: that's another thing that vaguely irked me - Kit's absolute lack of response to Joe's supportive/sweet comments. It's clear that he's a decent dude so it wouldn't be for any malicious reason, but for Joe to be throwing out compliments all over the place and get nothing in response (even a like) was a shame. I imagine Kit is just more vocal in person.

Kit is clearly very sensitive to social media comments. I feel like it could have been just one thing that made him uncomfortable commenting on Joe’s posts. He really only gets positive reinforcement from his comments on Will’s stuff

by Anonymousreply 272January 23, 2023 9:07 PM

Some of these comments are starting to feel like the troll that was angry about Bash's Instagram post for Joe's birthday. These aren't transactional relationships, they're actually friends/dating/whatever in person. Kit's physical affection for Joe speaks more than any Instagram comment ever will. Kit also barely comments anymore and has never liked the comments on his stuff. His social media activity around Will is more an outlier than his more recent lack of activity around Joe is.

I'd be a bit bitter to sit in an apartment for months while my boyfriend filmed a huge life and career changing show.

If I had to guess, Joe didn't actually start filming until the 19th when he did that IG story, so makes sense Bash went home this weekend and missed fashion week in Paris.

They also both have a lot of money. Bash wears 500 quid tshirts, buying a last minute ticket to atlanta impulsively if he and Joe really miss each other or if Joe finds out semi last minute that he has a light work week is doable. Speaks more to their maturity and actually long term ability to make this work. even if Bash doesn’t currently have other work right this second, there will be times they both have active filming projects in other parts of the world and need to figure it out. I still think he’ll spend a good chunk of time in Atlanta but he’s not fully moved there. Hopefully he stocked underage Joe up on target wine before going home

Do we think Joe or Kit would be part of this?

R318 highly doubt Joe would schedule a con around work, the most likely non agatha things he’d pop up at are maybe NY fashion week or the premiere if HTDBW comes out and had a premiere while he’s filming. And even those aren’t certain. Kit didn’t seem to hate the last con so maybe? Some combo of the supporting cast seems more likely.

R317 literally no one cares that Kit smokes, as per usual fans have decided he’s being shat upon or oppressed for some reason and are tweeting defensively

R318 I doubt it. That con seems pretty low tier

They’re very careful to say “cast members” not “main cast member” like Love Victor, that’s definitely not accidental

Their big get so far is Bradley. I'd guess they are trying to get some of the lesser known actors from the cast. Tobie, Cori and Bradley woudln't be bad. those three seem close

R317 As usual nobody said anything, at most someone probably said smoking is gross and then they went on a tangent about how he's an adult and don't judge him because he can do what he wants (other than date a 22 year old)

R325 Asking this genuinely - when you say 'nobody is saying anything at all', what are you basing that on? Is it a general assumption or have you actually had a proper look on Twitter? I'm sure at least something has been said, even if it isn't especially widespread.

R327 I searched on twitter after reading on here and found one reply saying “I wish he didn’t” apart from that just scores of overwrought fan girls swearing they will defend their poor baby with their lives and endlessly talking to each other about how upset people are and how much drama it will create.

On twitter at least no one that I can find gives a shit and the only drama is in their own heads.

As some have said a stark contrast to a lot of the same accounts dismissing the constant really vicious and really real hate that Joe gets and telling those challenging it to get over it.

The more I see if it the more it irritates me. I know they have all had a hard time on social media but apart from the queerbaiting accusations which still occasionally bubble up (I am not minimising them) I have yet to see any personal hate directed at Kit certainly none from the fandom. It is a good thing that at least one of them is being spared but sometimes I wonder if what he hates the most is the constant vapid babying and idolisation which is insane pressure in itself while his closest friends are being continually torn apart by the same people who claim to love him

R330 I know. It’s a sickness, I just can’t look away!

R331 I live in small hope that it some how got back to Joe that there was a whole little corner of the internet that spent 400 posts and several hours thirsting over his lips and waist (and all his other parts if we’re all honest). I know it’s a zero chance but nice to think he has some knowledge that outside Twitter the internet isn’t a totally dark place for him

by Anonymousreply 332January 24, 2023 9:46 PM

R339 Agree. It’s a handful of people on a single social media site that are weird about Kit/Joe/Bash at this point. Their Instagram comments are positive, this place is generally positive, Reddit is generally positive, and so on. Also, a reminder that all of these people on there fighting about who gets it worse or better, who should be saying and doing what, who is an antisemite, who is a queerbaiter, who is transphobic, etc. are a bunch of teenagers.

And this one wasn’t even dramatic just annoying

I only saw this shit looking up Joe yesterday for the Agatha pics and he was getting homophobic bullying (though saying a gay man sucks his boyfriend's dick is not a good insult honestly? step it up a bit. ) and death threats and the fan who called it out actually ended up being shit on for being too negative and triggering other fans. Today the same fans defended Kit from their immigration like they are getting paid. Not exactly sure why HS fans hate actual gay men, but it's a bit fascinating.

Anyway, don't smoke Kit. White European men hit a wall quickly and we don't want to make it worse.

With the caveat that I don't know any of these people, yadda yadda yadda, both of them strike me like the type of people who avoid bad breakups (in the general sense and in this specific situation because they'll have to do press together down the line). Maia's ex-boyfriend before Kit still follows her and comments on her stuff so it doesn't seem like a bad break, and in Kit's situation all of the drama was and continues to be on Sof's end.

R339 If they're still whatever they were and he ends up seeing her I imagine it'll be like when he went to Argentina, that he was nearby and swung by or like when Maia was in Spain with her family, where she was nearby and swung over to Paris. They don't seem to prioritize traveling to see each other specifically. Kit is still in London right now, at least.

In more Joe observations, it’s interesting how many of the reply’s on his Insta comment to Kit seem a bit shocked by it. Not the bulk but definitely noticeable. He is so infantilised by the fans. Such a shame he didn’t have a slut era - it would be hilarious to watch them have breakdowns because he’s not actually “a little squish” or an angel

He's a 19 year old man. That comment was pretty tame and his normal emote spam. Not sure what was shocking about it even for the puritans

by Anonymousreply 345January 24, 2023 10:43 PM

R345 If his and bash’s texts or snapchats ever leaked (or most of the cast’s to be fair) the shocked fans would pass away on the spot. They’re making out in front of Joe’s mum and playing grab ass in front of bash’s, a few jokey thirst tweets on mutual friends’ photos is nothing in comparison.

R343 I still think bash is in London. He followed a random songwriter the day she posted hanging out with Maisie Peters and I have to imagine that was the connection. Watch him be spotted in an atlanta cafe tomorrow, but until then I’m presuming London.

Re the Twitter stuff: I think keep most of it off but it is probably hard for the teenage Joe fans to see how much more loved Kit is. It is shitty but the flip side is it’s probably not thrilling for kit that he’s so idolized and babied by the world’s most annoying fan base, and also Joe did the right thing and removed himself from Twitter so he can’t see the discrepancy or other hate. If he hadn’t lined up marvel I’d honestly feel a lot worse for him because this would be his only main fanbase and it would suck, but now even the people who originally were pissed and calling him ugly in marvel replied to the latest pics more positively. They’re realizing he’s actually hot and once he does a good job in the show he’ll have a built in much larger fanbase. And one less histrionic about perceived faults

by Anonymousreply 346January 24, 2023 11:17 PM

I made the mistake of looking at what the issue is now for context, and it's actually more idiotic than I was expecting. A supposed Joe stan keeps publishing absolutely vile comments about Joe on their Curious Cat and they're angry that people aren't arguing against anonymous comments? Who are people supposed to go after? Don't fucking publish them! Those are comments no one would make from their account, and this twerp decides to publish them all and give whatever troll asshole is writing them exactly what they want. The pathological need for attention and drama that these teenagers have makes them act like complete morons. It's hard for me to imagine that they actually care about Joe, especially when Joe already gets a ton of hate without someone adding to it and publishing all of this shit.

The personal life stuff starts about 13 minutes in. Talks about how playing partners makes it all very iffy and makes it hard to separate reality with fiction.

Okay, now I'm not sure about when this was recorded or if she's not being completely truthful, she says that regarding the last co-star she played bf/gf with, they're great friends and things didn't get weird.

R408 I'd be very surprised (but pleased!) if it's released before the end of May - unless they've specifically arranged Joe's Marvel schedule to finish early, he'll still be filming then, so won't be able to do promo. With the amount of promo they did for season 1, I highly doubt they'll want to do promo without Joe for season 2.

Also, I know it's the Emmys but it's the family Emmys with way less coverage - are Netflix going to be so desperate to be nominated that they'll release the show early?

by Anonymousreply 409January 25, 2023 7:31 PM

I agree that it feels uncomfortable that two individuals who felt forced to out themselves are nominated I am really not sure either of them would want to celebrate it.

I also suspect from what I have seen of the online fanbase they will boycott voting for Joe en masse out of spite because Kit isn’t nominated and because they are generally homophobes who dislike him. They will get behind Yaz to some extent but she really isn’t known enough beyond Heartstopper to have much of a chance. So it’s just the show itself that might be in with a shout but I really don’t know enough about these awards to call if it is a realistic one

R409 A lot of awards follow the Primetime Emmy eligibility window, which is the same as the Children's and Family window, so I think they'll want to get it out by then. The CAFE are also where they do best, so I wouldn't be surprised if that's something they have in mind when figuring out the release date.

The Marvel schedule is something I'm not too worried about, mostly because we don't know enough. He might be done by the beginning of May, which would free him up by the end for promo, he might not be needed the entire time, they might have an agreement with Netflix already and could frontload his scenes, they might let him go and have him come back during the reshoots/pickup window and finish up then (which they did with Emilia Clarke for Secret Invasion), and so on.

by Anonymousreply 412January 25, 2023 7:44 PM

R415 honestly, and I hope this isn’t vicious to Tobie who I don’t think it bad looking, that comment dispels to me any lingering thought that maybe Kit hasn’t commented on Joe’s stuff similarly due to lack of attraction as has been floated. Unless his type is “hates hot twinks”, doubt he’s more attracted to Tobie than Joe. To me the most likely reasoning is either doesn’t want to encourage shippers or doesn’t want to be lighthearted and jokey about joes looks, even in a positive way.

by Anonymousreply 422January 25, 2023 8:15 PM

R422 I think it’s okay to admit that Tobie isn’t in the same league as Joe. At all.

It seems a mystery we won’t solve. Kit will thirst over many other cast members stuff but not Joe’s. Doesn’t seem to be any indication of their closeness… but sadly we miss a bit more fun interacting. I don’t think it’s about comments about Joe’s looks - Insta is mostly positive about him

by Anonymousreply 423January 25, 2023 8:25 PM

Regarding the release date and need for Joe to be involved in promotion, I highly doubt he’s going to be filming every single day for five months. He’ll have some days off when they film scenes he isn’t in. If he knows when he’s going to be needed for promotion ahead of time, he could have coordinated his schedule with Marvel. Aubrey Plaza obviously got approval ahead of time to host SNL and they didn’t film any scenes with her last week.

I also expect Netflix to try and promote Heartstopper more heavily in the US for s2. If Joe is already in the US filming for ACOC, having him do some US based media appearances would be easier. Honestly. I feel like an April release makes the most sense. Joe can multitask. He’s a professional actor, this is what they do.

R424 It's true, I suppose. He'll be exhausted but it should be doable. And in terms of US promotion.... puppies interview? There were certainly hints that they were going to try and make that happen.

I would guess Netflix will also book them for a late night show, similarly to how they did with the Young Royals leads.

I was reading an article on how class privilege affects the UK acting field and got a Bash jump scare, he’s name-dropped in it:

[quote]A private education can certainly be advantageous for an actor, as the sheer number of them suggests. […] Newly crowned A-lister Florence Pugh, Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke and Sebastian Croft, and Skins’ Sebastian de Souza of Skins studied at St Edward’s Oxford, known as “Teddies” – as did, historically, Sir Laurence Olivier.

The article is overall interesting and really drives in what an anomaly Joe is, apparently only 8% of actors/musicians/writers in the UK are from a working class background. And Benedict Cumberbatch sounds like a huge twat.

R430 interesting read. It’s why it’s interesting to me that the HS audience on Twitter reduces things to racial privilege often or deems Bash the only nepo baby due to 1800s relatives. None of the cast are “true” nepo babies, but Bash and Kit to the largest extent and then Will and apparently Kizzy to the next extent definitely benefited from class based / some nepotism privilege. All four went to pricey private schools and had nice houses and parents with good jobs. Bash’s family is next level wealthy; Kit’s mum works in casting and making adverts, where he got his start. All four got the best drama lessons and experience. Theyre all pretty talented and to be fair, being in London or around it is a leg up unrelated to class that all four had, bud the difference between them and someone like Joe who was in local cheap drama schools and plays or Yaz who was in school drama projects is huge.

On Twitter it’s often reduced down to “Joe is white and thus more privileged than will” (the main comparison I’ve seen), but while being Asian undoubtedly makes acting harder, Will having a rich family, the best music and acting lessons, being tall and “straight attractive”, and being straight passing or straight (don’t know his sexuality) almost certainly more than balances out any advantage openly gay, 5’9 Isle of Man twink Joe has.

I didn’t notice Kit Harrington or his wife mentioned… both of their Wikipedia pages are the most ridiculous things I have ever read. They are really next level privilege

by Anonymousreply 432January 26, 2023 5:55 AM

R431 Kit's mom didn't work in casting, fairly certain she worked at a big agency as a producer until Kit's older brother was born and then freelanced. I can't say I fully agree with your last paragraph. While Will had advantages to help get his foot in the door, there will never be the amount of parts available to Will that there are to Joe, full stop. It's smart of him to not put all of his eggs in one basket and branch out into music.

R432 That explains the whole Kit Harrington thing. I saw him in War Horse and in Game of Thrones and found him extremely bland in both. I'd be fine if his character never pops up again in the MCU.

by Anonymousreply 433January 26, 2023 6:17 AM

[quote]Other interviews with privately educated or otherwise privileged actors have centred the challenges they had to overcome to succeed: Emily Blunt’s childhood stutter, Will Poulter’s struggle with dyslexia and dyspraxia, Pattinson’s troubles with bullies. These are all potentially traumatic experiences, especially in childhood, and all suffering is relative; but the emphasis on them points to an awareness of the need for an origin story more interesting than knowing the right people, a desire to prove the part they played in their own success.

Didn't notice this as a trend and I have a feeling it's going to be the first thing I notice from now on. Has anyone in the cast done this?

by Anonymousreply 435January 26, 2023 6:21 AM

I think it’s worth noting that Joe is not straight passing so comparisons to Will are sort of moot. Both will have parts that are just not available to them - the bulk of available roles. Which as sexuality and race have little to do with plenty of roles is fucked

by Anonymousreply 436January 26, 2023 6:27 AM

R433 I don’t want to post her LinkedIn as that seems invasive but she is involved with making commercials. Either way my point wasn’t to say Kit is some Maya Hawke level nepo baby, it’s to distinguish him and Bash a little more from Will and Kizzy as the former two have a bigger advantage than just being upper class. As I said no insult to any of them, I think they’re all decent to very good with Kit being the strongest.

Re will: we can agree to disagree here. I don’t think there are per se MORE roles available to Will, I just don’t think there are fewer. And again, as I very clearly said, this is a response to Twitter insisting it can be simplified down to “race=the biggest and only factor”. Being white definitely helps - An Asian actor in Joe’s position would have an even more minuscule chance of making it. But acting like an openly gay, not wealthy kid from a semi remote island (not an easy commute to auditions) is so much more advantaged than Will is a little odd to me.

R434 You know damn well Bash is both dyslexic and was bullied and has spoken about both in interviews.

There is a very valid conversation to be had around representation and class in the Arts in the UK but a transparent and cynical attempt to stir up the nepo baby and white privilege twitter hate angle on Bash here by simultaneously posting across both related threads is not it. It is demeaning to the seriousness and complexity of the issue whilst exposing a very personal and determined grudge.

We get it Bash is loaded, so are Kit, Will and Kizzy along with most other UK actors all from a similar class of wealth that enabled them to access a lot more opportunities than Joe and Yaz would ever have had. There are many structural reasons for this and it is not the fault of individual young actors who have benefited from an accident if birth.

A genuine desire for a serious conversation would warrant a separate thread and broad discussion. It would not involve the duplicitous singling out of one young gay actor yet again on top of months of targeted smears and harassment across social media.

If your only interest is to weaponise a subject to attack an individual albeit in a very sly way take it back to twitter where I’m sure you will find plenty gullible enough to fall for your duplicitous bait

For me, the reason rich kids have more of a chance is not class, connections, race etc but simply, they can afford to take the risk. Becoming a paid actor or musician isn’t easy. It takes a lot of rejection & long periods of time not employed & not earning. Those with wealthy families can afford to do that. They’ve got nice family homes to live in while they are not earning. They’ve got mummy & daddy to fall back on. They don’t need to worry how they’ll afford their next meal. So they can keep at it. They can focus solely on their dream of acting or singing while continuing to live a comfortable life. Meanwhile, normal kids have get shit jobs, sometimes two of them. They have to support themselves & live in shitty flats shares & life is just that bit more exhausting. And for many, I imagine the risk & shit quality of life just isn’t worth it & they quit.

by Anonymousreply 447January 26, 2023 11:04 AM

R447 I agree but I also think the child actor thing is a part of it. Parents who can afford to take you or have a nanny take you to auditions without then being dependent on your earnings, which then also allows you to build up a resume and body of work so you can outcompete the working class actors who move with no experience at 18. Even things like knowing terms on set, working in front of a camera, etc. that Joe said he had to learn fast or ask kit about.

Also re wealth and child acting, Part of the reason bash and kit seem so down to earth and sweet is their families do seem very caring and supportive. I think if either didn’t want to act their respective parents would support it and would’ve let them drop it; the poorer or working class kids who get into child acting feel more pressure to stick with it as their parents are actively sacrificing to take them to auditions and jobs.

by Anonymousreply 448January 26, 2023 12:42 PM

R447 Location is also critically important and unless your parents already live there or can afford to bankroll you no young person can afford to live in or within an easy commute if London.

Overall it shows the value of genuinely open casting calls at unearthing talent that wouldn’t otherwise have a chance. The balance in the Heartstopper main cast demonstrates privileged backgrounds will always be favoured but let’s be real Joe would not have had a realistic shot at an acting career without it and he is an exceptional talent. It is also true that class and wealth in the UK at least is more significant to life prospects then factors like race or sexuality. All have an impact but wealth, connections, education and location are the most critical. From what I know of the main cast backgrounds both Joe and Yaz came from the position of least privilege.

It is only a drop in the ocean but it does seem one important route that should be utilised by the industry more. Hopefully it will be another positive legacy of Heartstopper, especially if Joe reaches full A list status, that it encourages more projects to do the same

R502 Theorising about sexual attraction might be a bit strong I think it’s obvious to most gay men, or anyone in touch with reality, that Joe and Kit have never had a serious attraction to each other. A bit of flirtation and genuine affection but that is about it.

Saying that I wouldn’t be at all surprised if Kit is blindsided occasionally by Joe he is objectively beautiful and does have those lips I find it hard to believe Kit is completely insensible to his charm

R513 Nobody is policing anything. If you can talk about heated looks other people can say that normal people look at each other when they speak

And NY fashion week doesn't seem to have many designers the cast is going to be interested in. Not sure they'll go (I'll be a debbie downer for that). Do hope Joe (and Bash) go to the GLAAD awards though.

Speaking of photos, do we think Kit and Joe will ever change their Instagram icons? And for that one person, will Tanner ever switch his icon to something other than Bash?

Tanner won't because he's a WEIRDO. I agree with the person who gets annoyed by him.

There’s probably nothing in this, but a few people are speculating that there might be some news/a trailer soon, because this Instagram has been posting quite a lot of content recently to get people engaged.

R540 she is the whiniest person ever. But this semi confirms to me S3 is likely the last season (or at least the last one Joe and Kit are willing to definitely commit to). At least the storyline is done for those scripts. Also explains storylines ofNick’s dad and brother being moved up.

It's hard for me to feel bad when I know people who wrote entire prose books while working a 9-5. She's in the position where she can live off her writing. The comic and S3 scripts are likely all she has to worry about right now, and I'd be surprised if the scripts are due anytime soon.

Charlie’s mental health will be a bit more settled so the vibes will be happier? If she hasn’t changed the plan too much, this is the volume where Charlie becomes head boy. Nick and Charlie are also going to have sex and she’s also started setting up a bit where Charlie joins a band.

Realistically no one probably touched it until after the Christmas break, so they have only been editing for 3/4 weeks, so not a complete stretch they don’t have anything to show yet, and even if it were fully edited and ready to go now they have to slot into a Netflix’s schedule where they’ll want to spread things out over the year

by Anonymousreply 552January 28, 2023 4:40 PM

R543 I just wonder if she has the balls to make Nick less than tooth rottingly perfect, although there is a strong argument his behaviour wasn’t as perfect in the early story as people make out in particular how he tolerated the bullies for so long.

I would find it interesting and slightly amusing because it seems among the most insufferable group of fans there is almost a cult of Nick is Perfect which is what has been so disturbingly projected onto Kit the Angel. I really don’t think they would cope well if Nick gets a bit messy and morally complicated along with his descent into being a normal well rounded teenager who actually has sex with his boyfriend

by Anonymousreply 553January 28, 2023 4:40 PM

After being the biggest winner at the first Fanily and Childrens Emmys, I actually agree with others they’ll aim for a late May release. I’m guessing they’ll aim for as late as possible to give Joe time to do some in person promo interviews and go straight from the agatha set to interviewing but given how much they actually won (which Netflix wants) I think they’ll aim for that again.

R553 they posted it March 16 for an April 22 release, and said in January that it would be a spring release

by Anonymousreply 554January 28, 2023 4:42 PM

Poor Joe is gonna be knackered if they do that schedule, assuming they’ll pretty much go from promo to shooting S3 and then possibly back for other Marvel stuff if rumours are to be believed

He is young I am sure he will cope and would choose that over scrabbling for work. I know filming schedules usually include excessively long days but many people work long shifts and 5/6 day weeks without ever getting a proper break or holiday. Not saying it’s right but it’s reality.

At some point he might need to find a healthier alternative to his caffeine addiction to keep him going though

Still curious why they got into that position in the first place - very cute if they just did it off their own bat, but I suspect the photographer asked for it. I thought I saw some of the other actors at the convention doing cute huggy poses too, as if they'd been asked.

R563 Kit suggested the same pose to the person that walked in for the next fan picture, so my completely uneducated guess is that Kit either suggested it. I'm guessing that the photographer at the GQ shoot before this con originally suggested the pose and Kit decided to adopt it as a pose from there. There's also that picture of him and Bash at Disney in the Titanic version of that pose.
