01:35 pm - Patrick Stewart, patron of Refuge
Read this account by Patrick Stewart of growing up with domestic violence. I think it's very powerful. Some on my f-list have already linked to it, but I think it is worth passing along.

I didn't know he was patron of the women's refuge charity, but apparently he speaks fairly often for them. Good for him.

That is a powerful account. Very telling. I like his acknowledgement of Mrs Dixon too, doing what little she can. Thanks for posting it.

Yes, we should all hope to do as much good as Mrs Dixon in life.

I was also interested in how he drew on his experience in playing Leontes, and fortunately found that therapeutic. I don't know whether actors generally get emotional benefit from going into bad experiences like that.

I made SC read this. Very powerfully written. Was very moved by what the director said to him - made me wonder whether he'd had a similar experience and knew that Stewart would need a support when working through this sort of horror.

Yes - would be very interested to see him write fiction. Wonder what it would be like...
