“I play an immortal character in The Old Guard with Charlize Theron.
Tumblr media
My character just appears for probably two minutes, but I trained a lot for that character. I trained for all the action and delivered my best of the best; not just one hundred, but two hundred.
Tumblr media
I’m really excited of the movie and it came out, and I just realized that they pulled me all the way from Vietnam to London and shot all these things for three months,
Tumblr media
and I appeared for one minute on screen, and then they drowned me in the freaking ocean for five hundred years—that’s the interesting part of the character.
Tumblr media
But the thing is, it kind of payoff because I appeared at the very last scene that is leading us to a sequel, which I hope there will be a sequel. Otherwise, it’s gonna be just one minute. So if you guys likes the movie and comments about Quynh, I’ll have a chance to go back and give more about Quynh— the very first Vietnamese character from a big hollywood project.”

Windmill, windmill for the land- Turn forever hand in hand - Take it all in on your stride- It is ticking, falling down - Love forever, love has freely - Turned forever you and me - Windmill, windmill for the land Is everybody in? 
Another 2fer! Took me awhile to really bring it into the style I wanted; it is inspired by the conept of the Gorillaz “Demon Days” album cover. It’s been so iconic from the moment it launched n I just love it and felt it would suit the immortal gang~ Evidentally I also couldn’t help myself yet again and made 2 versions; one of the current team (with Nile) and one of the past team (with Quynh, even though she got seperated before she met the others in person). I just thought it’d be neat to have them in their past clothes n current styles :’)
(n I was told to keep long haired-man bun Nicky n not pull up his hood for this piece soooo, there you go. you’re welcome, again? X’‘‘DDD)
You can find both versions in my newly moved Shop! :)

the old guard but make it sports i guess??
to the surprise of everyone (mostly me tbh) i actually put some thought into these! read on for weirdly specific meta
some sports lend themselves quite naturally to the old guard (fencing, horseback riding, martial arts etc) but i got to thinking about what sports would they go into that wouldn’t be related to their ‘jobs’ or maybe in a modern au and THUS:
for nile i thought something that would suit her quick thinking and way of pushing her own limits would be rock climbing. it’s the kind of sport that takes a lot of physical and mental strength along with endurance and agility which i think would be a great match for her. also consider her reaching the top of whatever she’s climbing and just standing there, looking out over the landscape, the wind against her skin, at peace, just taking it all in... it’d be a thing she’d do just for herself, a way to cement her self confidence in new areas and experience a combination of adrenaline and intense focus that she can really revel in
for joe and booker the obvious choice would be football/soccer of course but here’s my niche scandinavian take: handball! it’s a team sport, quite fast paced compared to football (we’re talking like. 20 goals per game) and quite physical. (it also enjoys popularity in both north africa and france if that matters!) i also considered tennis, squash (the sport) and even badminton but i think joe would dig the social aspects of it and drag booker along because damn boy, you need to get out of the house and talk to people, ok. i call the pose for their picture ‘don’t throw that fucking thing at me and don’t give me those eyes i can see you lifting it you absolute walnut’. 
(nicky dutifully attends their big games and usually drags nile along - neither of them have any real interest in the sport but nicky buys the best snacks and they sit in the back the entire time practicing italian shit talking and listening to podcasts with shared headphones) (andy used to go too but she got a little too uh enthusiastic and got banned. oops)
my knowledge of roller derby is limited to that one ellen page movie BUT holy shit can you imagine andy and quynh tearing up the rink??? fucking lethal my dudes. we know they’re both quick, elegant and strong af so their games would be fast paced, at times brutal and they’d both have the best fucking time. in an au they’d probably meet while on opposing teams and flirt via basically mauling each other - esp with quynh as a jammer, the player who scores points by lapping the opposing team who have to stop her. nobody knows whether to be annoyed when they finally get together because the public flirting gets outright dirty or relieved because the injury percentage drops SO MUCH, oh my god how are they both still standing. and yes, their derby names would be pit wiper and androma kills because get fucking wrecked. the boys all get too caught up at their games and make a lot of stupid bets that nile inevitably wins because she’s the only one with critical thinking skills in these scenarios
nicky’s was actually the one who kicked this whole thing off for me; aerial silk is a very cool type of acrobratics - it’s basically yoga played on Extra mode and also in the air?? it’s all about stamina, flexibility and body strength. it looks super graceful but is also very challenging and it’s a fairly individual sport, which i think would suit nicky very well. i was honestly also inspired by the fact that the most aerial silk guys at my gym (i do pole fitness which has some overlap with the aerialists) have the same kind of figure as nicky: not bulky or cut, but still very strong with broad shoulders, lean arm muscles and strong legs. i don’t think he’d be interested in performances or competitions but he does occasionally invite joe to watch him practice when he has the studio for himself (the first time, joe nearly faints because his blood doesn’t know which direction to go and you know it doesn’t get any less heated from there wink wonk)
all that being said please don’t ask me about sports because i genuinely know next to nothing about most types of it - but i did have a lot of fun making these!

we already talked about andromache wearing quynh’s necklace. then there’s the abandoned mine safe house where andromache stash her and quynh’s old stuff
Tumblr media
but director gina prince-bythewood and costume designer mary vogt said long live the immortal wives so let’s talk about andy’s shirt.
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
at first it just look like a simple black t-shirt (also because charlize theron ma’am your face is very distracting i couldn’t look at anything else) but it wasn’t just a plain black shirt. it’s a shirt with a dragon print.
and what would a dragon printed t-shirt suggests?
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
i could be wrong, but i wouldn’t put it past mary vogt. this legend doesn’t just throw-in costumes for fun. this queen is all about details
Tumblr media
How did you create the costumes for the other characters?
Nile (played by KiKi Layne) starts off as a marine. And she doesn’t do it in her own clothes, because even her uniform is given to her. And then Andy gives her something of hers, simple in appearance, like a T-shirt and some jeans. But we wanted to give her a little bit of what she liked, so we created this Janis Joplin T-shirt that you can see in the movie and that was from a concert that the singer used in 1968, which in turn suggested that Andy was there.
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
so yeah. i think it is safe to say that andromache the scythian doesn’t just wear clothes, but wear memories. also. she never stopped loving quynh. fact.
(side note: janis joplin dated both men and women)

did it ever occur to you
Tumblr media
that andy purposely stayed up all night hoping,
Tumblr media
nay, knowing that nile would dream about quynh? is desperate to hear anything about quynh?
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
how about booker’s little oh shit moment knowing nile’s about to tell her dream verbatim about quynh’s dreadful eternal suffering?
Tumblr media
how booker sighed and glanced at joe and nicky, remembering he did the exact same mistake 200 years ago and never again dare speak about quynh’s suffering especially to andy after seeing how much pain and guilt and agony it causes andy?
Tumblr media
and when nile asked why andy blames herself for quynh’s fate and andy says she lost a soldier,
Tumblr media
no one believed her. not even herself. because what she truly lost... was her heart.
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
also: how dare you dir. gina prince-bythewood for this frame specifically. we know it broke andromache when quynh was taken away from her (as if andromache almost tearing her wrists off to reach for quynh wasn’t indication enough) must you really really do this broken glass shot specifically? ma’am?
Tumblr media
so excuse me while i sit in the corner and cry
