darkspawning asked: "So is our Josephine a real amazing character? I know you can't say anything but is she amazing?"

She is ABSOLUTELY amazing! I’m not sure how much I can say about her that hasn’t already been discussed, so, erring on the side of caution, she’s a really sweet and intelligent character who brings a refreshing perspective to the franchise. I love her not only as her actor (and I spent a good chunk of the time recording her romance SQUEALING ABOUT HOW CUTE SHE IS), but also as a longtime fan of the franchise who loves seeing a character like her in the roster.

sevanslcanzate asked: "Just out of curiosity (I don't know if you're comfortable with or allowed to answer this), but how did you get the role?"

I auditioned! It’s basically what Dave described a few months ago w/r/t Caroline auditioning people without agents. I sent my demos over, and they liked my work enough to send me a few audition scripts.

jake-wanstall-riley asked: "I'm very excited to hear you as Josephine in Dragon Age: Inquisition- but will we be seeing your amazing cosplay skills coming into contact with a character I'm sure you're already extremely enthusiastic about? :)"

D’OH HO HO! Alas, but no. I was serious when I quit cosplay some time ago, and I will be holding to that with Josephine as well, despite how adorable her outfit is, jfc.

As I’ve admitted on twitter, though, I would probably wear some casual cosplay, Josephine-inspired outfits the likes of which we’d see on blogs like consoletocloset. Her design is MARVELOUS, and I wouldn’t object to some Josie-inspired pieces in my closet!!!

swampywitch asked: "how hard was it keeping things about Josephine a secret while you watched the fandom stumble around like idiots trying to figure out everything we could about this absolutely wonderful character?"

OH LORD YOU HAVE NO IDEA. I’m probably the Marketing Team’s favorite person right now with how much I’ve been asking them when Josephine’s, and subsequently my reveal was going to happen. It was bad enough sitting on the knowledge after my casting, and then actually after I started to record Josie, but as soon as the hype started building, I became pretty unbearable. Major props to my friends for not disowning me!

I spent a lot of time biting the inside of my cheek and trying not to comment on any kind of speculation, both with regards to Josephine and the game itself (as I am well and truly Spoiled when it comes to what’s going to happen, obviously). Granted, some of the speculation had me laughing pretty hard—someone wildly guessed that Josie would be the reanimated statue of Eleni Zinovia. I mean, that would be so awesome, but … no, that’s not who she is ;)

The harder moments were when fandom had a relatively pessimistic outlook on the announcements and my knowledge of the game could have easily corrected any misinformation. I mean, when people were terrified that there was going to be no bi representation in the game, and I’m sitting here knowing full well that there are bi love interests…. It was a frustrating situation to say the least.

At any rate, it’s wonderful that the news is out! Still biting the inside of my cheek at LITERALLY EVERYTHING, but at least I can do so as That Girl Who Lent Her Voice To DA:I And Is Super Pumped!

Okay I really have to get back to this work project I’m doing but HELLO BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE YES I AM JOSEPHINE AND IT IS A DREAM COME TRUE AND ALSO THIS SPREADSHEET ISN’T GOING TO SPREADSHEET ITSELF SO

Philosophy Unveils Hope & Grace Initiative In Support Of Mental Health

brillianttips:

Chances are, you know someone touched by mental illness. You may even experience a mental condition yourself. Not surprising, given the fact that one in four adults in the U.S. — about 61.5 million people — will experience mental illness in any given year.

Given how pervasive mental illness is — and the need to remove stigma around it — philosophy, the well-being beauty brand known for its uplifting messages, announced today (July 15) the launch of its "hope & grace" initiative. The initiative was announced at a breakfast with speakers including Arianna Huffington, president and editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post Media Group; Jill Scalamandre, senior vice president of philosophy; and actress Glenn Close, co-founder of the mental health organization Bring Change 2 Mind.

Through the initiative, the company will donate 1 percent of sales from products purchased on philosophy.com through the end of this year to community-based mental health organizations.

And starting in 2015, 1 percent of all sales of products — whether it be retail, online or on QVC — will be donated to mental health organizations. A first grant of $20,000 has already been awarded to Bring Change 2 Mind.

Today only, for every use of the hashtag #hopeandchange on social media, philosophy will donate $1 to these mental health organizations.

For more information on the initiative, watch the video below.

Just want to raise attention to this initiative, since this was my mother’s big project that she devised and brought to fruition since starting at philosophy last year. I’m so proud of the good work she and her company are doing for women living with mental illnesses.
