Jared Padalecki: Nerd HQ 2011-2014
[The first time Tatiana as Helena started dancing] the crews’ jaws dropped to the floor because she just kind of lost it there. After we shot one take, I was like, “Whoa that was crazy…can you do it again?” And of course you have to do these dances a number of times to get it right and, after about the third take, Tatiana was like, “I don’t know why I started that in the first place.” – John Fawcett
I love Tony and I think what we really wanted to do with him was explore him in the same way we do with all of the characters. I’ve never met somebody like Helena, you know. I’ve never met a Rachel, you know who looked like that. I think, we just wanted to treat him the same way we treat all the characters and go as creative as we could with him. And I know that aesthetically he is a bit, nonconforming. But, to me, that was the exciting thing about him.

I adore this gesture so much.
