Jonny Lee Miller Appreciation Week
Day Two - A TV Role - Sherlock Holmes
"In the books, I found him to be a much more understanding guy. I feel that he really likes people a little bit more than I had seen recently — not that he can necessarily communicate that very well. He likes the underdog, and he likes people who are downtrodden, who are having a hard time. He generally wants to help. I found him to be a much more helpful person, so I tried to put a bit of that in, even though he doesn’t quite pull it off." - Jonny Lee Miller
"I often wonder if I should have been born in another time. Ehm, sorry. My name is Sherlock and I am an addict. M-my my senses are unusually, one could even say unnaturally, keen. And ours is an era of distraction, it’s a… punishing drumbeat of constant input. This cacophony which follows us into our homes and into our beds, and seeps into our… into-into our souls, for want of a better word. For a long time, there was only one poultice for my raw nerve endings, and that was, ah, copious drug use. So in my less productive moments, I’m given to wonder… if I’d just been born when it was a little… quieter out there, would I have even become an addict in the first place? Might I have been more focused? A more fully realized person?"
#i love how sherlock’s guises for watson are always of the badass type#they’ve evolved from ‘personal valet’ to ‘bodyguard’ to ‘AMERICA’S FOREMOST EXPERT ON HOME SECURITY’#his confidence and pride in her is so strong that everyone else is instantly smitten with her too#and that dude believed 900% that she was an expert#and fuck this friendship i hate sherlock holmes i hate this show i’m so angry (drparisa)
My dear Watson …
