Shadowhunters: Kaitlyn Leeb cast as Camille Belcourt

I have to be very honest here, I do not know where they’re going with this… it’s way too soon to be casting Camille, right? Given that the first time she’s even mention is in City of Glass, and then she only shows up in City of Fallen Angels… but hey, whatever, I’m sure they’ll make it work somehow.

The news of the day is that she was cast! Yes, Kaitlyn Leeb has been tapped to play the leader of the Vampire Clan, Camille Belcourt, also known as *SPOILER* the bi*** who broke Magnus heart so many years ago… (sorry, couldn’t help it… not a big fan of Camille). 

I am liking the casting though, she’s not at all as I imagined her, and yet there is something very Camille-like about her.

I read somewhere that they’re also casting Meliorn, so the Seelie Queen should follow soon, yeah?! I’m kind of excited about the fairies.

Yesterday the #DistractinglySexy started trending on twitter and I compiled a few of the post here. But because it is still very relevant, and I can’t ignore it, I’ll share a few more with you. (part 1part 3)

In case you don’t know what I’m talking about, Nobel Prize winner Sir Tim Hunt shared a few insights while on a conference, saying that labs should be same sex only, because women in the labs cause some trouble… either the men fall in love with them, or they fall in love with the men, and then they cry. Yep, that’s what the bastard said! He then apologized, saying how wrong of him it was to say it in front of journalists (yeah, not sorry he said it and thought it, just that the journalists were present…).

In case you’re wondering, he resigned yesterday from his UCL post. I have to admit, I’ve been in science for about 12 years, I’ve been working in a mixed lab since I entered my Masters (a while back) and before that I worked with guys in the lab… NEVER HAD THAT PROBLEM. Crying?! Sure, it might have happened, you know, when I work for a whole month and PCRs keeps coming up contaminated or negative, sure, I might shed a tear, but I never had any sort of inkling towards a male colleague…

SO, without further ado, here are some more fun tweets about this.
