Oh I’d so read this, ngl.
And Rene is so cute, I wish I could meet him face to face and tell him how adorable he is, halp.
Siddig is still pretty young tho, I’m shocked.
Answering that ask earlier has got me thinking and now I’ve remembered something.
Sid and Andy also wrote a play together called ‘The Dream Box’ that they performed at conventions. I did a lot of searching once in an attempt to learn more about it, but I couldn’t find out very much. It sounded quite interesting though and I really wish they’d publish the script or something. All of the characters were just played by the two of them, and at one point Sid was playing Garak and Andy was Bashir!
I remember mentions of two scenes in particular. In the first one, someone mentioned that the scene changed just as Palandine (played by Andy) was putting the moves on Garak (played by Sid).
The other was where, through the Vinculum, Garak and Bashir were able to communicate without the universal translator. Garak was revelling in finally being able to truly understand Julian, in finally hearing all of the subtle meaning in his words and inflection that the UT can’t translate. They said he did this by asking Bashir over and over again to say ‘I love you’, like a parent to their child or how one would to a lover, etc. I don’t know why, but that makes me feel sad somehow.
I really wish I’d been able to see them perform this. *sigh*

Martok: There is no greater enemy that one’s own fears.
Worf: It takes a brave man to face them.

Seems like a fairly high percentage of Garak episodes are basically Hurt/Comfort. I should start a tally.
Aww that 3rd pic… I read Andrew Robinson had a fever during this ep. *aww*
Yup. From Memory Alpha:
… It is also worth noting that Andrew Robinson himself suffers from mild claustrophobia, and on the day the crawl space scenes were shot, he was suffering from the flu. He says of these scenes, “I didn’t have to act. I was there.”
If this isn’t woobie, I don’t know what is.
It may not be the best photo, but there’s just something about this shot that I love. <3
I’d kill for the chance to see Sid & Andy together!
People write what about Garak on the internet?
It’s about time there was one of these!
Its first post was reblogged from me which is how I know about it! I hope I was the first follower!!
All of you! Follow fuckyeahandrewrobinson!!
(That’s about the extent of my Garak GIFs… I definitely need more.)
Feast your eyes on these distinguished BAMFs.

This is how I’d feel if I got a free weekend in Spain.
Happy 70th birthday Andy!
