~ Matthew Daddario quotes ~
I’ll post one random quote per day for.... I don’t know, we’ll see for how long. So I’d say enjoy this while it lasts. I’d also ask y’all to quote instead of reply, but I know some of y’all will reply regardless of that request, so, yeah.
Also, I’ll try to provide links if someone asks for them, but quite frankly I’m tired of spending lots of time finding links for people when so many don’t even say ”thank you”. So again, we’ll see.
Here we go, enjoy Matt’s nonsense and wisdom! <3

”We got better at the whole process [of putting the runes on] and it didn’t take [more than] a few minutes for mine. The neck rune was the only one that we had to focus on as it’s so prominent so you want it in the same spot. But midway through s2, it was like 3 minutes maximum.”

”[his favourite place to visit] The Natural History Museum in New York. They have a gem I want to steal. But I won't. Winky face.”
