“If you romanticise this business, you’re already swept. First of all, acting: it’s not different in that respect from anything else, be it plumbing or rocket science. Experience doesn’t help; experience is the basis of it it. ‘He had talent.’ Well, everyone has talent. But experience is time. Time needs to pass while you’re doing it.”
We are the Muses. Goddesses of the arts and proclaimers of heroes.

GREEK GODS FANCAST: Michael Fassbender as Hades (God of the Dead and Death; Keeper of the Earth’s Wealth; Prince of Darkness)“When you go to Aides’ house of wailing, down in the dark earth’s depths.”
GREEK GODS FANCAST: Miranda Kerr as Persephone (Goddess of Spring and the Underworld; Queen, wife, and consort of Hades)“Persephone who impairs the mind of mortals and brings them forgetfulness. No one else has ever contrived this, once death’s dark cloud has enveloped him and he has come to the shadowy place of the dead and passed the black gates which hold back the souls of the dead, for all their protestations.”
GREEK GODS FANCAST: Daria Werbowy as Hecate (Goddess of the Moon, Death, Crossroads, and Witchcraft. Patron of hounds)“Hekate Einodia, Trioditis [Trivia], lovely dame, of earthly, watery, and celestial frame, sepulchral, in a saffron veil arrayed, pleased with dark ghosts that wander through the shade; Perseis, solitary goddess, hail! The world’s key-bearer, never doomed to fail; in stags rejoicing, huntress, nightly seen, and drawn by bulls, unconquerable queen; Leader, Nymphe, nurse, on mountains wandering, hear the suppliants who with holy rites thy power revere, and to the herdsman with a favouring mind draw near.”
Be to her, Persephone, All the things I might not be: Take her head upon your knee. She that was so proud and wild, Flippant, arrogant and free, She that had no need of me, Is a little lonely child Lost in Hell,—Persephone, Take her head upon your knee: Say to her, "My dear, my dear, It is not so dreadful here."
