... but OMG! Is Gilles Marini making some serious attempt to make me like him?

In the future would you like to step behind the camera and have a go at writing and directing?

One very smart Welshman called Matthew Rhys (Kevin in Brothers & Sisters) was one of the greatest inspirations for me. I worked two years straight with this man and there’s no limit to what Matthew can do. He is an incredible actor, he’s very complex, very intelligent and a stunning director. The best ever scene I had (in Brothers & Sisters) was one he directed. Seeing Matthew being able to do that – we’re pretty much the same age – really made me feel like only you can stop you.

If you want to do something like that one day then you have to jump into it. Matthew is a great example of never saying no, never giving up and always doing things that he believes in. I thank him for that forever. I believe one day I’d love to write and direct a little project. I want to start with shorts and then down the line see if TV maybe a it’s something I know a lot about.


I could finish this with something venemous, (easily!) but it's time for bed and too much acid is bad for the stomach. Have a good night.

oh my god, talk about being full of himself!!! it makes me angry to see this non-talented non-fluid-in-english i-am-only-here-because-i-did-a-nude-in-sex-and-the-city so-called actor dares to even consider he can do anything remotely close to matthew rhys. this guys might be matthew's age but he started "acting" what, 4-ish years ago? matthew's been on it professionaly for like 20! and 30 if you consider welsh kids grow up performing in school.

it is a great compliment for any actor when another actor ("actor" in this case) has good things to say abot them given that there is so much ego in the industry but seriously? he wants to direct? it takes real actors many man years even decades to get behind the camera and this guy is no even a real actor... it infuriates me...

sorry for the rantng but i do really really dislike this pieace of *

Lol! I agree! Not to mention that Matthew has a degree from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art! Marini is so dumb that is funny! lol!

I never really know what to think of the guy either. I would like to like him, but he somehow always manages to just rub me the wrong way... Or rather, I'd prefer it if he kept his paws to himself alltogether. ;D

Actually Matthew had to shadow directors on B&S for over a year before they even allowed him to direct an episode as well, so it's not an easy thing to do.

Gilles isn't that bad but there's a level of narcissism in some of his comments, even when he's praising others.
23rd-Jan-2012 08:16 pm (UTC)
I guess, that's what I pick up on or something. I think he means well and every time I try not to let it get to me, because if you always look at what is wrong, you can't see what is right, but indeed "narcissism" would be a good word for it.
23rd-Jan-2012 03:35 pm (UTC)
Lol! I confess that bitching about Marini is my guilty pleasure and that makes me feel a little bad about myself! But that guy has such a severe case of narcissism! I've never seen anything like this. I can't stop laughing after reading this interview! All the interview is a perfect example of narcissistic personality disorder but the next sentence is priceless:
"what I’m going to concentrate on for the next three months; getting my own TV show (....)I’m a good hard-worker and I make people feel so hopefully they see that and understand that maybe it’s time to bring something different to Hollywood. Something with a bit more flavour that’s never happened before"
So, he thinks of himself of something that's never happened before and that will change Hollywood" LOL! It's incredible!
23rd-Jan-2012 05:46 pm (UTC)
well he is indeed somthing that has never happened to hollywood. As in a person who is so narcisist that thinks he can get his own show in 3 months when he can barely speak the langage and has no acting training whatsoever...

Him? Something new? Mr Marini, please, join the end of the cue, yes, around the corner, no, not this one, the NEXT corner. I don't know. My new year's resolution was to not b**** about him, but he's making it very hard for me. :D

C'mon Sylviane, where are you when we want to GOSSIP!!! :p
23rd-Jan-2012 08:12 pm (UTC)
Sorry! For some reason I didn't get any messages that replies had been posted and I was all depressed that no one had commented so far, so I opened LJ and found replies everywhere. Seriously, LiveJournal is getting worse every day.

But I'm here now, for about another 3 hours. Writing chapter 6.12.. :D

there’s no limit to what Matthew can do

I remember Baitz saying the same thing about Matthew Rhys in the early days of Brothers & Sisters. This guy makes a lasting impression on people apparently. That's a great quality in this business!
23rd-Jan-2012 08:13 pm (UTC)
I guess that's what makes me proud of Matthew. I do believe that he leaves a good impression on everyone he works with, but aslo fans who meet him. I certainly think it's a great quality to have.
23rd-Jan-2012 09:05 pm (UTC)
I agree. Matthew really comes as a genuinely good person and someone who is also intelligent and talented. We only know about his public image of course, and he can be really different in real life, but for all his answers in the interviews and the opinion of the people who has worked with him or met him I really think that he is the real deal! :D

This alone is why I will hate ABC for not keeping Baitz on this show. If they had actually left the man to it, we would've had a stronger show in later seasons and all the actors would've been the better for it. Execs really need to keep their beaks out every once in a while.
