So I just found out that Laverne Cox has an identical twin brother, who played pre-transition Sophia in OITNB.  I was wondering how they found someone that looked just like her to play the role!  Super cool.

they were discussing Sophia’s back story and she told them “ya know, i have a twin brother.” they asked him to do it and he said yes! :D

fun fact Jenji Kohan told Laverne Cox that they were going to hire somebody to play her pre-transition because they didn’t want to traumatize her or trigger dysphoria by having her pretend to be a man and she was like “no no, I can do this, I’m an actress” but the creators of the show insisted on using her twin brother instead 

<3

Ok, the fact that her brother was like “Yeah I can do that” is awesome. The fact that the producers understood what playing pre-transition could mean mentally for Laverne, and were like “let’s not do that to her.” is even more awesome.

The original UK, English and Italian posters for the Hammer Sci-Fi/Horror Quatermass series.

The Quatermass Xperiment" from 1955 directed by Val Guest. It was retitled in the U.S. as "The Creeping Unknown”.

Quatermass II" from 1957 again directed by Val Guest.  This one was called "Enemy From Space" for U.S. release.

Quatermass and the Pit" from 1967 and this time directed by Roy Ward Baker. This was the only film in the series in color and was released in the US as "Five Million Years to Earth”.

All of these films were based on BBC TV serials written by UK sci-fi author Nigel Kneale.

These were Hammer’s first forays into Horror, albeit tinged with a heavy dose of Science Fiction and paved the way for the color gothic horrors that were to come later in the decade.
