Was anyone else a little bit disappointed that the kick ass Lady Counsel Member turned out to be Natasha? Still love Natasha, but for a few glorious seconds, it was awesome to see an older woman come out of nowhere to kick ass.
I JUST HAD A HUGE TALK ABOUT THIS
ME! that’s Jenny Goddamn Agutter, from the classic children’s movie The Railway Children, and I nearly EXPLODED WITH FUCKING JOY when she went ninja on his smug ass. I wish she HAD been the British councilwoman for realsies, not secret!Nat.
I’ve gotten letters from women who have said that Kira means a lot to them because they themselves never felt like they could reach their feelings. Through Kira they’ve said to themselves, ‘It’s OK to have feelings, to express them’ or ‘It’s OK to cry, to feel anger.’
We always think it’s the men in society who have trouble expressing themselves, but through the letters I’m realizing there are many women who feel that way, too. I never expected to get into areas like this through a role I play. So, I’m incredibly gratified that women can learn about themselves through Kira. Frankly, I’m learning through Kira as well.
