(and it’s not about chris hoch this time, wow)
I just googled “Milly Shapiro” to find a picture of this adorable little nugget to show to a friend, and as I’m sure all of you know, google does this thing where relevant searches pop up in a dropdown menu. The dropdown menu offers things like…
Instagram’s favourite Elise Blake!
I really wanted to make a post about this, because I think Elise is good and all that and I would have loved to see her live. With the Instagram fandom I’m kind of getting hype backlash whenever somebody goes on about how much they love Elise. It annoys me. Anyone else?
Me too. I feel like I’m the only one on insta who doesn’t obsess over Elise. There r other matildas
This is probably going to be taken way out of context but I think it is because she is the like perfect conventional beauty if that makes sense I’ve noticed on instagram since people are generally younger they seem to be more attracted to the girls who are that. Basically the kids that look like all the ones you see in ads and on tv and modeling its the person that the mass media is selling you.
That being said there is nothing wrong looking like that or not looking like that all the kids in matilda are freaking adorable and if you know me at all you know I love them all.
I defiantly know what you mean, it does get slightly annoying. I think it also might be because she and her mum has Instagram so there is always the buzz when someone posts something.
If I get hatred from this I’m sorry but when I saw Elise it wasn’t her best performance so I was always confused about just how much peopled like her. She isn’t one of my favourites, personally.
i always kind of thought it was because people wanted to suck up to the matilda they have access to via social media.
but i think there is some truth to the idea that elise is small, traditionally adorable, and was the youngest matilda of all time when she started, and people respond to that.
(to be honest, i don’t care for elise either. i never saw her live, but in the video, while you couldn’t see her facial expressions, her movements and spoken lines were very wooden to me. and i thougt her televised ‘quiet’ was downright robotic. i’ve nothing against her, really, but if i had to rate all the matildas from favorite to least, she’d probably be in the bottom quarter.)
I was never really all that drawn to her, in any public performances I was never like: “ooh, I would really like to see her live!”. Personally, I think Elise is a very talented little girl, just her fans annoy me sometimes. When I first saw her in the group Naughty with: Chloe, Cristina and Lara (to be fair, I didn’t think Chloe was that great. However, she had the hardest bit to show off on.). She just didn’t do anything for me, and her Quiet I didn’t find that heart rendering. Maybe Elise does better at portraying a mischievous Matilda than a Matilda who is vulnerable etc etc. Plenty of Matilda’s have Instagrams and social media, Kerry being the obvious one. From audios and the video, her voice comes across as a little wooden. I’ve pinned this down to the fact Elise has a very distinct Essex accent, so when using an RP accent she doesn’t get the same emotional range in her tone of voice.
My only problem was the fact that Cristina was practically forgotten in the aftermath of Elise’s leaving - Elise got an entire farewell week (not that I begrudge it!) whereas Cristina got practically nothing. Don’t get me wrong, I love Elise and she’s brilliantly talented, but it did upset me a little that there was hardly any goodbyes for Cristina just because Elise left first.
I’m obsessed with the game 2048, and I made a Matilda version. x)
I must sound a bit odd to anybody who heard because I’ve been whispering aloud things like “Okay so two Adi’s make a Josie, two Cleo’s make an Eleanor” whilst playing to keep track…this is really fun!

I’m not sure I understand? I’ve never played Matilda if that’s what you mean :)
so like the broadway one I am making a west end time table thing but I need as many dates as possible. plz help any date you know post thanks :)
Lollie was on for the March 5th matinee and Georgia was on for the March 5th evening :)
I am officially saving every single penny I own to see Matilda before the current cast leave. It is happening. Sadly won’t get enough in time to see Cristina, Elise or Georgia before they go, but hey, the new girls will be brilliant, as is Lollie :)
I think Haley Flaherty is second only to David Tennant for the most convincing English accent I’ve heard in a long time.
