Beatrice: Let me show you a picture from last night that really upset me
Benedick: Okay, but in my defense, Claudio bet me 50 cents I couldn’t drink all that shampoo.
Beatrice: That’s not what I wanted to- you drank SHAMPOO?!

“I've been quite lucky in that I've managed to tick off a few of my dream roles, really. Beyond that, you wait for the next script to come in that will have the dream role that you don't know exists yet, I suppose.”
Happy Birthday David Tennant! (April 18th, 1971)

favourite female characters: [2/30] BEATRICE
He that hath a beard is more than a youth, and he that hath no beard is less than a man; and he that is more than a youth is not for me; and he that is less than a man - I am not for him.

Forget enemies to lovers, my favorite romantic trope is the two characters who roast each other nonstop from their first interaction before suddenly and reluctantly realizing they’ve fallen in love with the other

i love catherine tate and david tennant as an acting duo so much because they always really cover the Full Range™ of human emotion. like you get the seriousness of them listening to the song of the ood, or the gravity of “kill claudio,” or the tragedy of donna’s ending. but then you also have them miming to each other at 1 am across an office and benedick rolling up on that fucking golf cart

the message of much ado is still so contemporary !! benedick is faced with a tragic situation caused by his best friends & he really has to question where his loyalties lie. does he stay loyal to his buddies without question or does he risk their friendship & do what's right? it's still a question that i think most men have to ask in their lifetimes.
& benedick is someone who does actually break off that friendship (& also resigns from his job, probably loses some social standing, & endangers his very life) not only because he loves beatrice, but also because he is convinced that she is right. however much he participates in & performs gender norms at the beginning of the play, he's ultimately the only character who abandons ingrained loyalty to his fellow men in order to do the right thing.
i love how, through benedick's character arc, we get to see the risks of standing & acting against a social system but then! we get to see the reward at the end & even in the midst of it all. he couldn't have that lovely "for which of my bad parts didst thou first fall in love with me? / for which of my good parts did you first suffer love for me?" moment with beatrice if he hadn't rejected the blind misogyny of his friends first.
he risks so much of his power & comfort as a man & he gets a happy ending! he's a protagonist who the audience loves & roots for! we don't see this character cut off his friends & then face tragedy as a result. we see him become one of the only characters with a truly happy ending. & we're left optimistic about the capacity of men to change. we're left feeling that change is worth it.

much ado about nothing is so underrated. successfully scamming your friends into falling in love by just gossiping about them really loudly? golden. beatrice friendzoning benedick in front of everyone they know and then confessing her love like two minutes later? hilarious. the friar telling hero to deal with her shitty boyfriend by simply faking her own death? fucking superb. random villain who has literally no motive other than he just wants to fuck things up? phenomenal. there is nothing about this play that is not incredible.
