Joan Chen, c,1994
Do you easily become emotionally dependent [in relationships]?
I’m a mixture of incredibly independent and dependent upon the high-romantic high. But I’m willing to work on every aspect of a relationship. Most of the confrontation part I welcome. I’m a stickler for the truth. I want the opportunity to deal with it.
Does your idea of happiness include family?
Yes. But let me back up. My deepest idea of happiness has nothing to do with another person. It’s got everything to do with a peace in my own mind. But I would like to have a family again, a partner and another child or two. It’s contingent upon a certain environment of healthiness.
Movieline Magazine, December 1998
"Imagine; I used to have really long blonde hair, always wearing heels, lots of make-up. I had been someone who was highly feminised and had chosen to look that way, partly because I was 6ft 3in but also I was into that aesthetic. I knew it had to be stripped away. I knew this would be an important part, not just for my work but in terms of my own development, because I would be confronting elements of myself that I didn’t want to confront (…) To see yourself displayed as unattractive, large, masculine, it’s quite tough … But I know it’s just perspective. A social conditioning that causes us to view these traits in a woman in a negative way." — Gwendoline Christie
I designed a serum to treat his spine, you know, derived from the same formula that helps me control my mutation. I take just enough to keep myself balanced but he takes too much. I tried easing him back but he just couldn’t bear the pain. The voices… The treatment gives him his legs but…It’s not enough. He’s… He’s just lost too much.
