The TV Junkies talked about Lost Girl‘s final season with Zoie Palmer. Here she is on the passionate fans of Doccubus:

It’s a lot of things. Certainly the fact that they are two females has resonated obviously with the LGBTQ community, but beyond that it’s really real. I like to think that it’s true. One of my favourite movies growing up was The Princess Bride, and when you can watch a relationship on screen and it feels really true, and it feels like true love, like it was meant to be. Audiences connect to the fact that Lauren and Bo feel destined. It’s like when you meet somebody in your life and it feels like you’re home. I think they are home for each other a little bit. I think people see that. Just based on what people have said to me or come up to Anna or I who have had such a big reaction to the relationship, I think it’s because they’ve found home in each other which is something that everybody is often looking for in a relationship.

“Oh gosh, when I look back at old pictures of Katherine Hepburn, how incredibly trailblazing she was in terms of dressing. In those days, she was sort of an image-maker and a siren of sorts, a beauty. She really believed in the power of a trouser and a simple button down blouse and loafers. She really opened the door for women to dress differently.”

Alycia Debnam-Carey talked with The Huffington Post about Clexa and The 100. A must-read for fans! Here’s an excerpt from the Q&A:

       What can you say about Season 3? How many episodes will you be in? 

I can’t say. But I just read the first script, I’m very excited to go up and see everyone.

I’m sure Clarke will be excited to see Lexa. Won’t that be a fun reunion? 

Not so much. [laughs] Eliza and I will have a great time, but … I think people will really enjoy it, the way it pans out. There’s a great scene for Lexa’s introduction [in Season 3].

In the first episode back, will Clarke and Lexa have a scene together? 

I can’t say. But there’s a great [Lexa] scene in that episode.

Elle turned 30 this year, and so they asked some women we love to talk about their thirties. Here’s what Kate McKinnon shared:

“In one’s twenties, one feels as though there is somehow unlimited time to make decisions that are wrong for you and also experiment with things that are wrong for you. But when the decade turned, it suddenly felt as though there was no more time to waste.”
