Fata Morgana
Veronica, Italian. This blog is just an ode to the awesomesauceness that Stana Katic is, inside and out. I believe in destiny, and I think everyone of us has its own path ahead. It is only a matter to find it.

Fan: “I was just wondering if we were going to find out more about either Kate or Rick’s childhood? Are we going to see them as kids or teenagers?”
Nathan: “Ooh that’d be cool, like having a… Ooh what if we had an episode where we kind of go do a flashback, and like they’ve met once as kids, but don’t remember”
Marlowe: “That’d be fun”
Nathan: “Right? Pulling some pigtails on a playground… ‘Kate! Stop pulling my pigtails!’ “

Happy 5th anniversary Castle fandom!

"It would have been great."

"You have no idea."

Andrew: “Ah..this is subtext. “Do you have something that might make me feel better? Make me feel better”.”

Andrew Marlowe, Terri Edda Miller, Stana Katic, Nathan FIllion, episode commentary.

Andrew: Alright, she just wants to hold his hands.

Stana: Yeah, pretty much.

Andrew: Because she liiiiikes him.

(Andrew, Stana, Terri, and Nathan episode commentary)

"This is a really sweet moment because she’s accepting him back, but he’s saying “Look, if you really don’t want me here…” and it’s a nice little dance that they do. This is where they’re saying they like each other without saying they like each other. One of the reasons we wanted that line for Beckett “See you tomorrow” is that in the end of season two, in that episode, the last thing she says is “See you in the fall”, and it’s more with a question mark, and Castle says “See you in the fall”, but it really is unresolved, and now that things are back, things are normal, we’ve reestablished the relationship. "

Stana: Oh my Gosh…

*Stana laughing*

Marlowe: This is a subtle metaphor for what it means to work closely with one another, work closely together.

“Just really quickly, if you know me, and you guys - you know me, you know that I don’t like to learn anything. But despite my best efforts, I have learned in 100 episodes how much I rely - on how heavily I rely - on all of you. When people tell me, and they do, that they love this show I don’t think of the polished piece that we see on TV, I think about the hours we pull, the freezing outside, the laughs, hanging out, and being here. And I appreciate you all, and I look forward to coming to work and being with you all, all the time. Thank you very much.”

- Nathan Fillion speech to the cast and crew of Castle during the party for the 100th episode

Andrew: “Everybody does a great job, but, you know, special kudos to Stana because (…) she’s really driving in; she has a big work load,and she always comes prepared, so…”

“a writer and his muse fighting crime. just like us.”
Interviewer: How do you feel knowing that you’re the inspiration for a character like Kate Beckett? She’s a strong woman working in a man’s job, who has made her way in that world. What was your reaction when Andrew told you about creating a show like “Castle?”
Terri: Super flattered. I love the way I look through Andrew’s eyes. I am honored that he considers me his muse, and he is mine. When I read his pilot for “Castle,” I was blown away. And the most romantic part was, when the pilot got picked up, he told me he wanted us to make the show together. He says I bring the “sparks.” (x)

In the Hampton’s episode Beckett seems to eat in every scene…

"Sometimes I’m just hungry, okay? We’re doing the scene over lunch and I haven’t eaten lunch so… "I’m just gonna eat in this scene okay?". And Rob’s like "no, don’t eat in this scene" and I’m like "Rob it’s real, it’s natural”. And then Andrew came to me one day and said “Can you just stop eating in the scenes?” And I said, “you know what, Brad Pitt eats in every movie, in every one for the last ten years, it’s real acting!”

Andrew: So the majority of this is actually shot in separation, where you don’t see   Castle and Beckett with the tiger in the same frame very often, so Nathan and Stana were not in any danger from the tigers through most of this. Hem…except when they went in there and tried to pet the tigers…Stana?

Stana: I don’t know who you’ re talking about.

Nathan: Tigers made my list. Bears, sharks, tigers.

(Andrew Marlowe, Stana Katic, and Nathan Fillion episode commentary)

❝I called Stana and said ‘you’re gonna be working with tigers. There’s one thing I’ve gotta ask you not to do. Don’t.pet.the.tigers. [Stana laughs] “Cause I knew, the first… as soon as I mentioned it she would just wanna go and pet the tigers.”❞

"She takes it the right way. What she loves about him is flaws; but she takes this exactly right because the only reason he’s standing here against instructions is because he loves her so much that he will take the risk of punishment and ridicule, and that’ s exactly the way Beckett proceeds. I remember shooting the scene, and I remember the feeling that…I thought it was needed, if I can say that, that Beckett understands how much this guy likes her, and how crazy in love with her he is. And as stubborn and stone hearted as she can appear to be, she does recognize it." - Andrew Marlowe ( episode commentary)
