    I kinda hate that a pair of total language nerds like those two felt they had to dumb down cerebral to ‘thinky’

    Has JK told anya that she’s gay yet?

    Chess players always say, “10 minutes to learn; a lifetime to master.” White to the right and queen on her color is all you really need to know.

    Ladies – if you want to be taken seriously – don’t wear ugly clown paint on your lips. Can’t even look at you.

    I thought her name was Anna! I never realised it’s actually Anya until I heard Seth said it. And I’ve been watching her movies since Switch.

    “Thinky” I think the word you’re looking for cerebral.

    Was the guest AI?

  • tritone11 10 months ago

    Her role in Queens Gambit feels iconic from the first scene.

    Still trying to get used to the blond hair. I liked her brown hair in Split & Glass. I’d have a hard time with the red (and SHORT) hair too.

    Personally, she looks best in brown hair. But that’s just my opinion. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

    Good actress, though. I like her!
