I've become a huge fan of Felicia Day over the past year or so. Dr. Horrible's Sing-A-Long Blog, The Guild, and Epitaph One, wow. Anyway, I saw that there was an interview with Ms. Day on TIME magazine's website and so I naturally hopped on over and read it.
Interesting stuff, especially given how honest she is about her addiction to on-line gaming. I really appreciated what she had to say about how she got addicted:
If you're a person who has kind of hole in their life, and you're looking for something to fill it, you're probably susceptible to any kind of addiction at that point. And for me, that was being unfulfilled by the kind of acting opportunities I was getting.
I could probably riff on the latent spiritual themes lurking within what she says (I mean, come on, we all have a hole in our lives that seeks to be filled) but I won't. Instead, I'll leave an open plea for the folks at Hollywood.
When Felicia Day is done with The Guild (and I'm not hoping that happens any time soon), someone give her steady work. She's good at what she does and I think she has an untapped following. I know I'd tune in.
