Welcome back, Jaime (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
What’s truly amazing, though, is Nikolaj’s acting, and I’ll tell you why.
The same insult is thrown at him three different times, by three different people. Look at his three different reaction faces.
VS. the father whose approval he desperately craves: deep hurt, a slight flare of resolve, and a dash of heartbroken resignation.
VS. the sister/lover whom he adores beyond any other: disbelief, sadness, pain.
VS. the tyrannical son born of incest who views him as an uncle: stoic self control (from holding back the insults and how-dare-you’s he probably wants to unleash).
