In which the lovely Amanda Abbington suddenly realizes she is photo-bombing her husband’s black carpet interview.
We love you, Amanda!
my brother said amanda abbington is hot
Mary Morstan is a character - feel free to hate her all that you want; however, Amanda Abbington is a person, and does not deserve the hate that she’s been receiving. You are sending death threats to an actress that was hired to play a character. The actress has literally nothing to do with the character, besides the fact that they share a face and voice. She is Martin’s partner and we all adore the both of them, and I wouldn’t put it past Martin to consider dropping Sherlock - which he is choosing to be a part of - because his partner is being harassed by the fans of the show.
We love Martin, and we love how he portrays John, we love his and Benedict’s dynamic, and Amanda has always been extremely supportive of the fandom and our completely odd shenanigans, so don’t go chasing after her with pitchforks and torches just because she’s playing a character that is the love interest of one half of our duo.
She’s a real human being, not a fictional one. Just stop.

Really?! Her dismissive attitude toward shippers is leaving a sour taste in my mouth. I don’t understand why she can’t just ignore it instead of commenting each & every time.
Why can’t “the powers that be” be a little more open & playful like the Hannibal & Sleepy Hollow fandoms?
Pardon? The shipper who tweeted at her is the one at fault here. Amanda tweeted something pro-Mary and some asshole had to make it about Johnlock instead of Mary. Fuck that shipper. Amanda shouldn’t have to put up with it.
Dude, she’s defending her character and her paycheck. Also, the production nor the crew and actors owe you a damned thing as far as fan interaction goes.
The person who dared tweet the actress who plays the role and basically just shat on her presence in the show makes them an absolute asshat.
Fucking Johnockers. You are why we can’t have nice things. Amanda is kind enough to interact with fans, and you shit on that. Fuck off.
Love, a Johnlocker who is sick of your shit.
Agreeing with the two above me on this one.
And honestly? She could have been a lot meaner about that than she was.
So seriously OP, knock it the fuck off. That goes for the rest of you too, fandom.
Another Johnlocker who’s sick of your shit
We need to start a club for Johnlockers who aren’t a bag of cunts.
No kidding. Another “Johnlocker” here who thinks this rude behavior needs to stop. Besides the most important point here which is you shouldn’t behave like this in the first place, you also make yourself look extremely juvenile and not worth taking seriously. Ever.
On a sidenote, I really like Amanda’s response. Heh.
In case it hasn’t been clear enough.
oh god, not again
Please take notice.
Signal boost please? And if you’re the one with the photos, PLEASE note that she’s asking nicely.
In case anyone following me isn’t aware - the photos of Benedict and Martin on-set with Martin’s kids were taken without anyone’s permission or consent, and Amanda and Martin have repeatedly very politely asked that they not be distributed. If you have reblogged them without being aware of where they came from, please delete them.
