Arya & Gendry02

Billie Piper, I love her so!!

Once again, Billie Piper proves why she is the most awesome that ever, ever, ever, EVER awesomed!


Seriously. I've never come across a celebrity interview where it genuinely felt as if this was so completely the real person, and yet, every interview of Billie Piper's (print or video) feels that way. It reads/sounds like she's just talking to a friend. She is a great actress and all, so it's possible that it's still a bit of a mask, but in her case, it just doesn't feel that way. She comes across as so real, so unpretentious, so vivid and funny, and wise and utterly über, completely awesome!

My 10 Favorite Current Television Actors

Randomly, I started thinking on this while rambling on Twitter about Kaley Cuoco in 8 Simple Rules, and it led to a list of my faves -- that I've subsequently made some changes to upon further thought. These are the ten television actors (five male/five female) who are currently gracing screens right now. (Which means that, yeah, one person on the list wouldn't be on it were I to have posted this two weeks hence, partially why I'm posting it now.) I based this on those actors I actively sought out their other work, images to make icons/graphics, and/or a past appreciation that remains strong through their current television role. There were quite a few who made the list, were crossed off, etc, but I decided to not do an honorable mention section, so I'll just list them here because even though they didn't make the top ten, they are still awesome and I love 'em. So ... Portia De Rossi (Better Off Ted), Jane Lynch (Glee), Simon Helberg (The Big Bang Theory), Steve Carrel (The Office), I love you all much, but you didn't quite make the list.

Those who did ...
