I said, “The only way I can play someone this hard is for something to be peeled away each week, and the first thing that needs to go is the wig.” I just wanted to deal with her hair. It’s a big thing with African-American women…You start when you’re just a young girl. Do you twist it? Do you leave it natural when it’s so hard to take care of? Then you start wearing wigs but every night before bed you’ve got to take the wig off and deal with your hair underneath. And it’s a part of Annalise that I needed the writers to deal with because I’ve never seen it, ever, on TV and I thought it would be very powerful. It’s part of her mask. - Viola Davis (x)
"Dido’s Lament” an aria from Dido and Æneas by Henry Purcell, performed by Jeff Buckley live at the Meltdown Festival in 1995. Elvis Costello, director of the 1995 edition of the festival, on Buckley’s performance:
❞I was amazed when he did Meltdown. I asked him what he wanted to sing and he said he’d like to do one of Mahler’s Kindertotenlieder in the original German! Absolutely fucking fearless. He was convinced he could sing it without rehearsal, just because he liked it. In the end he did a Purcell song, Dido’s Lament, which is in danger of sounding incredibly poignant in retrospect: ‘Remember me but forget my fate’. But he also sang Boy with the Thorn in His Side because he liked it, and Grace to show something of himself. When he started singing Dido’s Lament at the rehearsal, there were all these classical musicians who could not believe it. Here’s a guy shuffling up on-stage and singing a piece of music normally thought to be the property of certain types of specifically developed voice, and he’s just singing, not doing it like a party piece, but doing something with it. My last memory of him was at the little party in the green room afterwards. There were all these people sitting round Jeff who’d never met before — Fretwork, the viol group, a classical pianist and some jazz player — all talking and laughing about music. He’d charmed everybody. I’d much rather remember that than anything.
