We live in a society that’s sexist in ways it doesn’t understand. One of the consequences is that men are extremely sensitive to being criticized by women. I think it threatens them in a very primal way, and male privilege makes them feel free to lash out.

Tatiana Maslany on Kathryn Alexandre
↳"There were times on set where I was so tired and I just didn’t know how I was going to get through the day, how I was going to remember my lines, how I was going to even just be there and she would show up and give me everything and it was like I just fell in love with her. She just was so there for me and so giving of all of her energy and all of her work. That’s the ultimate generosity as an actor.
