Hot off the press, Ben and Leslie’s wedding album!
A little back story to this clip before you watch it:
Will Smith’s father abandoned him and his mother when he was a child, and when Will was finally getting into show business and making a name for himself, he tried to sneak his way back into his life like nothing happened. Will co-wrote this episode, and James Avery (Uncle Phil) said “this scene was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to shoot in my life. Every emotion, every word.. that was Will”
Will was actually supposed to play it off and then walk away, and there was originally an alternate scene that was supposed to happen, but he actually completely cut out what was supposed to be said, and did all of his own dialogue. The hug at the end of this scene is completely genuine, and this was a stepping stone in Will’s career where he started to take on the “do what feels, sounds, and looks right” approach to his acting.
Shoot brah. This hits too close to home. Actually, this hits right at home.
Doesn’t matter how many good memories I had without my dad or how good I am without him, nothing hurts worse than being rejected by your own blood.
Instant reblog, to be honest.
#OH I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS #Because for once it doesn’t concentrate on JUST the main companions (though River doesn’t fall under that category… Well and Jack/Face of Boe) #It focuses on the minor characters #the ones that only got one or two episodes #One a fleeting moment or two to prove their worth #and it shows us that even though they’re not the MAIN companions #the Doctor still believes in all of them - finds them all to be brave and strong and good#Jade who gave up her life so he could save everyone #Lynda with a Y who stayed to hold off the Daleks when she could have ran #Luke (knowing he messed up with the Sontarans) who sacrificed himself to buy the Doctor time to save the planet from the poisoned air #The Hostess who gave up her own life to drag the Creature with her out onto Midnight (and they never even caught her name) #Every single one of these characters gave up their lives to save others; save the planet; save the Doctor#They were brilliant and strong and though they might not have always been ‘The Best’ - they were all always brave
