1. I have never written a central female character who was described as thin other than Lindsey Lee Wells. Also, Margo and Q are two of the only white-identified people I’ve written, so I don’t really know how to respond to that part of your statement.
2. I do not cast the movie adaptations of my books. I am a novelist, not a casting director. I did not choose who would play Margo anymore than I choose where the movie will be filmed or what the budget or soundtrack will be.
3. That said, I think Cara will do a wonderful job as Margo. As I’ve learned in the past few hours, a lot of people who don’t know Cara have extremely strong opinions about her as a person, which is weird, because they don’t know her. They have a lot of opinions about her body, too, especially its supposed inadequacies. Cara is living, on a much larger stage, the Margo Roth Spiegelman experience: She receives massive amounts of attention but she’s more a mirror than a window. The way people respond to her seems to be a reflection of one’s own experience and worldview more than it has anything to do with the actual person Cara is. I think this is part of why Cara’s audition was so powerful: Her understanding of Margo is deep and profound and about a lot more than the shape of her body.

A Little Princess, by Frances Hodgson Burnett
I fucking sobbed like a baby during this scene.
ME TOO! I just wanted to run up, and hug this beautiful woman so tight! *cries all over again*
People allways like to say this part is ‘over acted’ but honestly she portrayed extreme pain so well, especially on the back, knowing from experience having that sharp pain on your back feels like someone ripped out your spine, A+ my queen, A+.
It wasn’t just the physical pain. She was drugged and significantly mutilated in her sleep by the man she trusted and loved, and his betrayal was for his own personal gain. That’s emotionally agonizing on so many levels.
You can see the grief AND pain in this seen.
For everyone wondering what the thing on the bed was
The thing on the bed was just another kid playing a trick like they said it might be and the knocking was just the metal cooling or whatever else they said it could be. That was the point that it really was just nothing but ordinary things and our fear makes them into monsters.

How about some love for a good police officer?
Officer Gaetano Acerra
Responded to a call where a 13 year old boy didnt want to live in his home anymore. He found out that the family couldnt afford a bed or much else for the teen.
So he bought him one. A big queen sized one.
He also bought him a Tv and someone donated a Wii, so now they play whenever Officer Gaetano Acerra has a chance
He also plans to get him a dresser, mirror, and a hamper. Among other things he needs but cannot afford.
People. They’re not ALWAYS a bunch of bastards.
The corruption needs to go.
This guy can stay.
