      After seeing her demonstrate expressions and poses, I realized that she’s incredibly gifted at her craft. It reminds me of the behind the scenes video of Belushi on the set of Animal House where he makes his face into different emotions as someone rapidly shouts them at him.

    I prefer lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll’s eyes. When those black eyes roll over white and then… ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screaming.
