#Look at that #that’s a two year age difference #it looks like a ten year age difference #my poor insane bby
This is one of the things that has always fascinated me about Jim Moriarty - and really it goes down to the root of Andrew Scott’s sheer talent. It’s difficult to make someone look as though they’ve been through hell from the actor’s perspective; sure, the makeup crew can tinker with features, but to look at the difference in his face…
Let’s look at the fall. Of course there’s the obvious difference in hair, but look at the pinch in his brow, the difference in how his eyes are set and eyebrows low. The tightness around his eyes. The set of his scowl and the vehement hate in his chin. It’s just this entire distaste for what the game’s become.
You can see how on the right, he has hope. Excitement. He’s got something to look forward to. I personally don’t believe that in TGG/Pool scene Jim, he knew he was going to die before it was all over with. I honestly don’t. There isn’t a vacancy in his eyes on the right, while on the left there’s just, I don’t know, a desolate gleam? Yeah, he knew he was going to his death on the left. But in the right, he looks like a dog when his master has a squeaky toy, except he has full intent on biting the hand instead of the toy.
I don’t know. I just have so many feels for this character. And Andrew Scott for being able to portray such a difference for one character from one point in time to another. They barely look like the same person.
It makes me wonder if the game getting ‘boring’ because he bested Holmes was all that happened to him…
I always tried to convince people he looked completely different but no one saw it. It’s impossible to miss. He honestly looks so young to the right. Ughhhh Andrew bby how u do it.
