A Birthday Tribute to Laurel Holloman

Happy Birthday, Laurel!

We just wanted to express our deeply held admiration for your talent as an actress. We thank you for giving us so much pleasure and joy while watching you on the big and small screen, and – for those lucky few – the New York stage. Thank you for all the memorable characters you have brought to life so far with such delicacy and power: Randy, Samantha, Laurie, Justine, and Tina, to name but a few.

Thank you, Laurel, for being so gracious with your fans. Thank you for being dedicated to The L Word, and for your numerous appearances at book signings, events, and conventions. Thank you for being an advocate for the gay community. Thank you for your efforts to support humanitarian causes that help those less fortunate, benefit all of us in the long run, and really do make the world a better place.

We wish you the best on your birthday, and every day. We wish you and your family well. We wish you the best in whatever acting, advocacy, or other projects you undertake now and in the future. We will be there supporting and applauding you.

The section entitled “For Laurel” contains the full text of our tribute. We invite all of Laurel’s fans to contribute their own words, artwork, music, photos, and/or videos to this birthday blog. Any contribution, no matter how large or small, is always welcome!

    Happy Birthday Laurel! I’m sure you’ve heard this already, but thank you for helping me discover more about myself. Your character Tina helped me to understand and come to terms with who I am. Because of her I’m happier and aware that love can overcome anything. Here’s wishing you many wonderful birthdays and congratulations on your new baby girl!

    I was looking through Birthday Poems and this is the one I feel that express my feelings…

    “Another Year

    I’m wishing you another year
    Of laughter, joy and fun,
    Surprises, love and happiness,
    And when your birthday’s done,

    I hope you feel deep in your heart,
    As your birthdays come and go,
    How very much you mean to [us],
    More than you can know.”

    Happy Birthday Laurel! May God bless you and your family for eternity. I first saw you on The L Word and you have a new fan in me 🙂

    Hi Laurel.

    So yeah, I just wanted to wish you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY along with everybody else.
    I remember you as Randy Dean, way back when, and back then I had the biggest crush on you! I’m just saying.
    I love the way you’ve portrayed Tina during the past 5 seasons of The L Word, even through the not so gay times, but you came back with a bang this season! I loved the selfconfidence your character gained this season, long overdue, and the way you carried the character through the whole season was refreshing and solid!
    Thank you for being you. Can’t wait to see what your next project will be after The L Word.

    Love to you and your family.

  10. Sheri says:

    You made this season on the L Word a great spectacle. You are one of the loveliest actresses out there, and.. no one has really sad this.. but I’ve not seen anyone (!) do love scenes with the kind of finesse and wholeness and perfection that you have. You know the art of being a woman, you are potent and magical.

    Love and happiness to you and your family.

    with gratitude,
    Lori

I wanna let you know you are the reason to makes me watch The L word…. every thing you’ve done is so amazing….Love you Laurel !!! …. Happy Happy Happy to you and your family….

  35. Jen says:

    Happy Birthday Laurel!
    You truly are the reason I watch The L Word. You bring your character to life and the storyline with Bette wouldn’t have the fanbase it has today if it weren’t for your commitment to it. THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING YOU DO! Have a wonderful day. Auguri e buon compleanno.

  36. Gina says:

    Laurel,
    You’re a person with such a beautiful soul.
    Happy Birthday! You deserved the best always! We love you!

  37. Happy Birthday Laurel!

    I have been a fan, though a quiet one, from day 1 on The L Word. When Season 5 ended, I just couldn’t be ‘quiet’ anymore! You have inspired many women – gay, straight and bi – with the characters that you have portrayed. You are so incredibly talented! You move me with your performances. Just a look on your face can break my heart or just as often, bring an unmovable smile to my face.

    You have such a beautiful, sweet and generous spirit – it comes through in your acting, it can be seen in any pictures taken of you and when you do interviews or podcasts (which we, the fans, would love more of!!)

    The Doctors Without Borders cause you support has inspired me to get more involved with charity work – not just donating money, but donating time! Thank you for inspiring me to be a better human being!

    Congratulations on the adoption of your daughter! I wish you and your family much peace, love and light in your lives!

    We love you Laurel! You have a fan for life in me … I will follow wherever you may go!!

    Happy B-Day again,

  66. To Laurel on a wonderful birthday. I have been a fan since “two girls” – it was kind of my coming out movie:] You’ve done an amazing job at protraying each one of your charaters from Randy Dean to Samantha all the way to Tina. Love everything you do. Actually your the main reason I started watching the L word. I just wanted to wish you a happy birthday with many more to come. From one may baby to another

  68. Riley950 says:

    Happy Birthday Laurel!!!

    I think the greatest compliment you can give any actor is “you make me feel good.” You have made me feel good. I have been able to see all your works and have enjoyed all of them. I thought “The Rising Place” was wonderful. I would love to see “Blossom Time,” but the director tells me he hasn’t released it yet, and says it is, again, wonderful. I am hoping someday it will be released for distribution.

    Wishing you much happiness for the enjoyment you have given me.

    To be inspired is not easy. Love sometimes makes us write poems or do crazy things…

    But feeling a soul as gentle as yours
    seeing a smile as sweet as yours and

    have given the desire to become a better woman.

    You are an inspiration. You are the L in the L-Word…

  79. Lisa V. says:

    Laurel…

    Not too many actresses, or people for that matter, inspire others to “rise up” and be the best they can be – to be creative, be true to themselves, to give back. Your birthday has resulted in your fans doing just that, by creating this site, submitting artwork and such, and, by donating to your chosen cause, Doctors Without Borders.

    I am one of those fans, and I want to thank you for reminding me of what is important in life.

    “Birthday Blessings”

    Instead of counting candles,
    Or tallying the years,
    Contemplate your blessings,
    As your birthday nears.

    Consider special people
    Who love you, and who care,
    And others who’ve enriched your life
    Just by being there.

    Think about the memories
    Passing years can never mar,
    Experiences great and small
    That have made you who you are.

    Another year is a happy gift,
    So cut your cake, and say,
    “Instead of counting birthdays,
    I count blessings every day!”

    (by Joanna Fuchs)

    Laurel,

    Happy birthday and many happy returns. May all your dreams come true and may you and your family stay healthy forever.

    You are such a special person and I cannot thank you enough for all the joy you have brought into my life as a straight girl by playing Tina opposite the fabulous Jennifer Beals.

    I’ve never seen a more convincing couple in TV or film history ever.

    With all my love, Susan from Switzerland

    Dear Laurel!

    In honour of your birthday I want say what you as actress and person mean for me.

    You inspired me to learn English afresh because I want to read about you all I can and I want to understand you when I hear yours magic voice.

    You inspired me to investigate much better in computer technologies and possibilities to communicate though it because I want to see your works, your interviews, photos and connect with the people from all different countries to talk about you.

    You motivated me to understanding what is more important in our life and in the world in general since you are supporting DWB and with your adoption.

    You encourage me be ready to go to gym one day – when you are in so good shape after childbirth, why I can’t be that good also? Not as good of course as you are (silly me), but still.

    You even stimulate my sexual life – I only have to try image you near me and my partner can do nothing special, you know 🙂

    So… what else I want to say? Oh, you distracted me from me thoughts again…

    I know, all of thouse things are not a big deal, but it’s my life and how it changed and continuing to change because of you.

    I wish you happiness which including healthy and harmonic family with the love in it, the good people around you and beloved work, many works that you like and earn with your outstanding talent.
    You deserve all of it and so much more!
    Thank you!
    Happy birthday, dear Laurel!

    Birthday Greetings from Germany!
    Laurel, I don´t know you. But I can say that I´m in Love with Tina. That was Love by the first sight; She is a dream and I´m crazy about her! But I will never understand the relationship (Love?)with Bette. She´s terrible and…kick her ass, she don´t deserve you. You will see that Bette breaks out again. Once a cheater always a cheater! She is a boring slut, just like Shane, absolutely repugnant! Bä…
    I wish you all the best,healthiness, a lucky life and God will bless you, always

    Happy Birthday Laurel Holloman,
    Been a fan since ‘Two Girls in Love’ being a fellow southerner, I asked myself who was these gutsy actors who not only tackled the lesbian theme but the racial theme. It has been a pleasure to watch your craft over the last couple of years. Walking us through the ups and down of Tina Kennard. It will be a sad day after the last L Word episode, but I can not wait to see what other wonderful characters you will bring us in future.

    So Happy Birthday as all my best,

    I, like hundreds of your fans, want to wish you a happy birthday. In reading what the rest have said, I am in agreement with them as to your talent and how you portray your roles. I have to admit that I had not seen any of your other roles and Tina Kennard was the firs role I saw you in and I was mesmerized by your character. I have now seen some of your other works and I am in awe at your portrayal of the different roles you have assumed.

    I know that you are someone special and I hope that you have the best birthday in the presence of your loved ones and remember that there are many fans out there(including myself) that adore you and your work.

    From France :

    Laurel,
    I wish you a very happy birthday to your 37 year old and all the best in your life, today and every day of year. A birthday it’s like a flower, that lasts only a few hours but that leaves in the heart a good memory. And I wish you one day made of small nothing, where all will be only happiness.
    Six months ago, I didn’t know who you are. Now, I just wanted to express you my admiration and my respect. Wow ! Beautiful performance. I really shared Tina’s joy and sorrow during these 5 great seasons on TLW. Year after year, you are more and more talented and attractive. It’s always a pleasure to view over and over your movies, hear your voice… So in future, I hope to see you much more on the big or small screen.
    Big kiss and again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY LAUREL.

    Laurel, I wish you a very Happy Birthday and want to offer you and your family congratualtions on your new baby girl.

    I mostly familiar with your work on the L Word. You are what hooked me on it and you are what has kept me interested, Your portrayal of Tina has been wonderful. Even when you have been asked to play your part that didn’t seem to fit Tina, you have strived to understand and do the very best you possibly could.

    Thanks for being so gracious and generous to your fans. We were missing you this spring, but we had no idea what wonderful even was taking place.

    I think it is a real testament to you to see the posts here from all over the world.

    I wish you many blessings and continued happiness throughout the year.

    Hi Laurel!

    Fist and foremost, I wish you a happy, happy 37th birthday and all the best for your life, present and future, your baby-girl, and your whole family.

    Living in Italy, I don’t know if I’ll ever get the chance to meet you in person, that’s why I’m so grateful to have the opportunity to send you a message here: thank you so much for your work , your committment to the characters you play, your opennness about being a bisexual and everything you do for the GLBT community.

    I’ve always been a loyal Tina fan (even though I started watching The L Word right in the middle of season 3, so, well…), and I’ve finally had the chance to check out the other movies you’ve played in only recently: again, thank you for the passion, the amazing talent you have, and the hard work.

    PS. I know you liked the Hollywood storyline and the “bookend” theory in season 5, hope you enjoy filming season 6 as well – all Tibetters can’t wait for it already!

  164. Hi Laurel- I hope you had a box of kleenex sitting next to you when you read these-I read a lot of them 14,17,92 were particulary good. Happy birthday-it must be an amazing energy feeling to know you are loved by soooo many people. You and Jennifer are amazing together specially in the love scenes-you have me totally convinced. If you ever need a place to get away consider Harbor Springs MI.-it is a small town with a large resort population-a place you can get lost in. I was in Hollywood in Nov. in 2006 when my eldest was doing an intership at the library at UCLA. With children 6 and 2 My daughter Leslie and Michael flew from Maine to LA. My god how does anyone survive the 405?? It is fun to see all the sights again–

    Happy birthday, Laurel! TTTIIINNNAAA!! 🙂
    Enjoy your special day and hope your wishes come true. Thank you for the amazing work you continually do. Your talent is immeasurable. Love, good health, and happiness to you and your family, always!

  167. Mandy says:

    Hi Laurel! I want to greet you happy birthday and wish you all the BEST in life. I did not have time to watch the L Word after my partner gave birth to a baby girl. I was just so pre occupied with her and my role as the other half to love and care for our little princess. Then a few weeks ago,I watched your shows, songs and intimate moments with Bette on the YouTube. And you made me fall in love again in a passionate way! I thought you were one of us and it made me admire you more to realize that you are just acting… damn very good actress. I fell in love with you as Tina. the way you kissed, the way you hold the face of Bette and those moments that you were intimate with Bette (inspite of her relationship), it made me see myself in you and also made me realize that I kinda neglected my partner for awhile. i want to have someone in my life as loving, loyal and passionate as you..Tina. I want to find and be with somebody that looks at me as if I am the only one that existed in her life. Thanks a lot for bringing life and passion back to my life and relationship. I wish you peace, happiness and health to you, your family and career.

  168. Meegan says:

    Happy birthday Laurel 🙂

    I have to say I have always been a Tina fan even when she wasn’t with Bette (I love Tibette beyond words) and alot of my L word buddies didn’t like Tina at all.
    It’s crazy but true…the L word actually saved my life and Laurel was a part of that, and to see that it only has one season left (I signed the potition thing will all my e-mail addresses) well it makes me sad 😦
    anyway I hope you have a fantastic day and I will be thinking of you (as ALWAYS) and like Jennifer Beals you both don’t look a day over 30. 😉

    xx

  169. Anna (from Russia) says:

    Happy birthday, Laurel!

    I admire you in many ways. You’re are the best actress in The L word. Your performance together with Jennifer Beals is fantastic. And you are a charming person too.
    I wish health, love, happiness, joy, luck to you and your family!

  170. Leslie says:

    Happy birthday, Laurel !!!

    I wish you the best now and always. I hope the end of the L Word isn’t the last time our paths will cross. I have enjoyed your work the last 5 years and I am looking forward to seeing you next January.

  171. Lisa says:

    Hi Laurel!

    I’ve never joined a fan club or done anything like this before. I’m 34 yrs old not a freakin teeny bopper right? This is crazy! What story can I tell you different than anyone who you have already talked to about your role in the L-Word? I don’t have a clue…all I know is that I have been a fan from the first day I saw you on the L-word and that every sunday for a few short weeks every year, you have made me smile. It is truly amazing that “sexy and in love” Tee is the same person as “producer tee”. I love how passionate you are about your character and that you think every emotion, scene and word through on so many levels. I love every season but season 2 was just so beautiful for me to watch. Beautifully & tastefully done showing the amazing pregnant female body. And as you have done in every season, you just did an amazing job. And just FYI, I do not have any children.

    I have soo many favorite scenes of you (and no not just the sex scenes..but damn Paul is one lucky guy if that’s how you are acting LOL! sorry just kidding)..but scenes that have touched me on just a deeper level than anyone has.

    So sad to see the L-Word end, but truly a privledge to have someone like yourself portraying ourlives through your tremendous talents. I appreciate all your hard work.

    Best of Luck in all your endeavors. I hope you have a great birthday and I can’t wait to see what your next role will be in.
    Thanks
    Lisa
    PS – it took me a little while to get the courage to write this, I hope you make it to Comment 170!

    Laurel,
    I celebrate you and your special day. What a wonderful woman you are-truly amazing. You have used your gifts so selflessly, standing strong in your beliefs for social justice and equality. What a legacy you are creating on your journey..many will be encouraged and empowered by your example. Your family, your friends, and those of us who know you only through the media are “blessed beyond” by you and your expression of living life “BIG.” May God bless you and your family. Continued success in your career…Happy Birthday!

  174. Sharon (From Maryland) says:

    Ms. Holloman,
    Just wanted to wish you a Happy Birthday, and the best in the years to come. I am 43 years old and my wedding anniversary is the same day as your birthday. I am a big fan of yours even before the L Word and like many others have been glued to my tv the last 5 seasons. Although many of your works have not gotten much air time, they are all still something to be proud of. For myself, I have been bi for as long as I can remember and have always been told to make a choice for one side or the other. You have shown me that it is not only okay to love men and women, but okay to be honest with who you are. I hope you and your family celebrate your birthday with fun and laughter. Thank you so much.

  175. Micki says:

    Dear Ms. Holloman- Hi there Sunshine!! Happy Birthday!! What a treat it has been to watch you in all of your characters! And although The L Word is my favorite, You have inspired me, shown me that there is life out there, and made me believe again in the power of love! You have, in your interviews, reminded me that being true to yourself, is key. And I thankyou so very deeply for that! You have changed my life in so many perspectives and yet you’ve impressed me more with your loyalties and convictions! You are leaving behind a legacy that shines of passion and integrity! What an amazing example you have been to so many of us- I hope to see you in a play again soon but I wish you great success in your future endeavors,along with health, laughter, happiness and above all else, love, to you and your family! Have a Super D Duper Day!! ;o) xoxo Best, Micki

  176. EMERALD54567(KIM) says:

    Laurel…..Just want to wish you the best birthday ever…I have supported you in many ways….donation to Doctors without Boarders, bought an “I SEE YOU” shirt, bought a coffee mug….bought all 4 Season of the L word, ordered showtime because of you and Jennifer, have bought every movie listed online on your website that you have been in and watched them all numerous times. You are a princess!!!!! The emotion you convey in your acting is most endearing. There has never been an actress in the past that can draw her audience into the inner core of her being except, Bette Davis!!!! You do compare!!!!!! She was one of the most exceptional artist to hit the screen and then came Ms. Tina Kennard!!!! You go girl!!!! I love everything about Tina….she has had her ups and downs….but she is a fighter….she always prevails. I only hope Season 6 is yet just another year……as I hope the series continues for the dedicated fans you have all pulled into your lives. We won’t know what to do without the L WORD…..but that being said…..I actually think you probably feel the same way about it…you have devoted your life and time to this project and you should be proud of your accomplishments. You have paved the way for many of us….lesbians, gays, transexuals, bisexuals and confused beings that walk the face of this earth. Once again….thank you for giving us the gift of Ms. Tina Kennard…and may you have all the happiness the world has to offer you and yours. One of your biggest fans…

    and A TRUE TIBETTE ROMANTIC

    Happy Birthday, Laurel! I’m so impressed that your fans would create something like this for your birthday. You obviously mean a lot to many people. We thank you for your amazing work on The L Word. You are so talented and fearless as an actress and you and the character of Tina are an inspiration to many of us. Thank you even more for your steadfast commitment to the LGBT community. It is appreciated more than you will ever know (I’m sure you realize that not many people in the spotlight would embrace being a role model and representative for the Lesbian community). Thanks, as well, for being an incredible human being. I see the same words used to describe you from fans, those who have met you, The L Word cast and others associated with the show – sweet, kind, honest, approachable, open minded, loyal. There can be no bigger compliment than having so many feel this way about you. You’re obviously very special and we hope you never change. Congratulations on your new baby! Your commitment to your family has made you all the more endearing to your dedicated fans and we wish you the best in everything you do. We love you Laurel!

  182. Zeebeeblue says:

    Dear Laurel,

    Thank you for bringing to live the Tina character that I love so much. From the first moment Tina appears on my screen to that last scene of Tina defending the movie ending, she is always the one which got my attention and the reason that I keep on watching The L Word. With your sometimes subtle, sometimes powerful but always spot on performance, you have created a character that is complex, is flawed, but always with a kind heart and a great capacity for love. Someone I can identify with, someone that made me feel her joy, her pain, her strength. No matter what kind of material you got you always gave it all. Your dedication and passion for your work is something to be admired.

    I would also like to thank you for bringing together a bunch of strangers from different corners of the world to share our love and admiration. The joy and camaraderie we shared on the message boards warms my heart. You have also inspired many people who have never in their life done a music video, a wallpaper, an avatar decide to try their hands on doing one. The creativities here and on different message boards dedicated to you are phenomenal. With this birthday project, we have all come together dedicating our time to write tributes, to show artistry in making videos, pictures, wallpapers, etc. And what I am most proud of all is the donations to Doctor Without Boarders. No matter how much someone has donated, whether it’s one dollar or one thousand dollars, we have giving what we can out of the goodness of our heart. To reach out to help someone in need because you have inspired us to do so. Many people have helped in sending out the message in any venue they can and pushed for people to make the donation and I am so proud of what we all have achieved.

    So on your birthday, I’d like to say happy birthday to you and wish you and your family the best. I hope we all have done you proud. At the same time I’d also like to thank all the people who have joined effort on this birthday project. This is something I’ll always remember with fond memories.

    Yes, Thank you for accepting to play the character of Tina and for playing it with perfection.
    Thank you so, so much to show to the world, my friends, family and my little daughter that two women can be a family, have a child, be responsible, be accepted, can have a real life.

    Thank you so much for giving to the world an image of our couple, our life.

    Thank you so much for bringing Tina to life.

    Bette and Tina’s life looks so much like mine….
    The birth of a child is a way to build ourselves and to build our life in a different way.

    Thank you so much for being so close to us……. for your kindness, your sympathy and your support.

    Happy birthday Laurel!

    Thank you for your portrayal of Tina in TLW. This is the first work of yours that I have watched and I love the integrity, courage and professionalism with which you practise your craft.

    I also love reading the interviews you give because they help me know a little more about you and makes my admiration for you less remote and more grounded.

    I love that you try and connect with your fans because it shows that you care for them. I love that you will try to be there for L5 so as to make up for your absence in L4. You didn’t have to do this but you did, because you don’t take the fans nor their love for you for granted.

    I love that during those times when Tibetters were in agonizing anxiety over whether Bette and Tina would reunite that you gave as much assurance as you can without giving away too much of the S5 storyline. Those comments of yours about Tibetters being happy in S5 (or something along this line) were a great relief and I learned then to trust only what you said. I think you were the only one (as opposed to JB or IC) who understood what the fans went through and cared enough to try and ease their anguish a little.

    So Laurel, as you can see above, the things that you do and the interviews you give are greatly enjoyed and respected. I wish you overflowing happiness, peace and joy in your life and the same for your family too.

    Much love and respect,
    Cloverleaf108

    Laurel,

    Wishing you a very Happy Birthday and many, many more! Congrats on your new baby girl. make sure you take time to enjoy your girls, gosh kids grow so fast, I have a 12 yr. old daughter and son that just turned 5. I still want to know where the last 12 years went,lol.

    Thank you for making Tina Kennard so believable,lovable as well as enjoyable. It has been wonderful to watch Tina grow over the last 5 seasons, looking forward to season 6 and your future projects. You are da bomb and there is no one in this world that play Tina Kennard better than you!

    In the words of Carly Simon( clearing throat and warming up lalalala)

    “Nobody does it better
    Makes me feel sad for the rest
    Nobody does it half as good as you
    Baby, you’re the best”

    Enjoy your day!!!

  264. ALLEGRA says:

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY also from me!

    I’m Italian and it’s 4 o’clock in the morning.. and being one of those crazy Gemini (and I wonder if you are the same..) I’m always doing things at the last moment! After having read all the metres of so many sweet wishes here above.. I hope you’ll always hold us in your heart! Lesbian fans can be very loyal, you know. Infact, talking about my self, I know it’s strange, but after having seen The L Word for so long, I’m not interested in watching other female gay things around. I’m very comfortable and quite satisfied with you and Bette together again! And even if it’s fiction, you two for me are the ultimate of perfection. And do you know why? Because it’s not about sex. Sex is the frame, the natural consequence. The whole thing is about TRUE LASTING LOVE! And this is what I think makes so many so fond of you two! The kind of love that in the end manages to overcome even certain faults and mistakes.
    I also thought you were looking very attractive when pregnant.. not easy and rare. And I loved you in Randy Dean.. but to be honest, Tina especially in season 5, made us sigh and dream a lot!!
    And I would love to hear more love declarations from you. A bit of heart juice for poor Bette who’s done so much to get u back this time.
    You and Bette are defenetly my favorite couple.. and to say it all, the soft pillow on which I rest my head at times!
    You’re a great actress, I love your facial expressions and keep showing us your emotions.

    P.S. A double-triple BRAVA for the DWB initiative you promote and for having adopted a baby. In the position u’re in, actions like this can inspire so many people! Your family is very lucky to have you. And to conclude I would love to see u a bit more around, like in interviews and shows. So don’t be shy or too busy please.. let us know in person what u’re up to and we will be happy to see you again.

    Much love from Milano A.

    Wishing you a very happy birthday Laurel!
    I want to send you a giant thank you for doing an amazing job portraying Tina Kennard, and for the open and insightful interviews you continue to give. You have given voice and represented “our lives” with honesty and love, and for that I am greatful. I love to see my own “Bette and Tina life” (mine with less drama ;-)) being represented on screen. And look forward to someday show it to the babyboy that my girlfriend is carrying.
    Happy birthday wishes!
    With love from Scandinavia!

  268. Timmsy says:

    Just want to wish you a very happy birthday, and congratulate you on your brilliant acting abilities! Somehow, you’re among the really good ones, whose character portrayals make me believe in the character; sharing *their* joys and concerns, rather than think of the acting professional and how I’ve seen them in various parts before. That truly is a gift of yours; how you’re able to *be* your characters onscreen, rather than come across as an actor trying to portray someone else while at work…
    Gratulerer med dagen!
    Joyous greetings from Norway!

    I wrote a poem for you hope it’s not too sad for the occasion.
    co written and adjusted by MIZNOONE

    THE WAY, ELEVEN WEEKS AND THE WAY

    Every time You close the door behind you
    The door breaks me in half

    I was walking the one year way
    Every day, hesitating
    Every week, waiting
    Every month, so far away
    Here I am
    Standing between two years
    Hopelessly hoping
    On the edge of everyday

    The seasons come and go
    The Nothingness is traveling in my blood
    I left my self to herself
    gazing at each other, gazing in the the vacuum
    I painted the mirror that used
    To see you in my eyes

    Gone
    You are gone now
    I felt my fingers
    itching at your departure
    And I remembered that I forgot
    To ask you
    To take your absence with you
    To take your favorite color
    And all the colors
    But, leave your nickname
    And your new photos
    So that I keep remembering
    That once upon a time
    You were here
    And that you will come back
    For only seven weeks

    And then…
    ********************************

  294. LvMyGirls says:

    I wrote this last month and apologize to those whom appreciate laconism…

    It was simply one of those nights where sleep would elude me. Although the day had been hot, unseasonably so even by our southern standards, the night had cooled down enough to provide a respite from the heat. I knew my sleeplessness had little to do with the weather; the real culprit had been my caffeine consumption that evening. Hours before, sitting out on my deck, I found myself attempting to unwind from my hectic day with a smoke (I consider myself a nonsmoker, but will light up if stressed enough) and a drink. I wasn’t in the mood for alcohol, opting instead for iced coffee. During particularly grueling days, I would find myself craving the comforts of home in New England and iced coffee was one of those creature comforts. In hindsight, I should have made herbal tea; well it was a moot point now. With the windows opened, I laid in bed and listened to the sounds of nature’s active nightlife below. My eyes had immediately acclimated to the dark and surprisingly much of my room was visible to me without the aid of light. I stared absentmindedly at the rotating blades on the ceiling fan above as a myriad of thoughts converged in my mind. One of them was about Laurel Holloman. So a number of her fans had decided to do something special for her on her birthday. Now why in the world would that thought have popped into my head at such an hour? I don’t know this woman personally and even if I did, her birthday was weeks away! I did have other priorities in my life and have to admit it was a bit disconcerting for me to be thinking about a complete stranger. It was obvious to me that I would not find sleep which allowed me to examine that question in more detail.

    What did I conclude? That, although Laurel Holloman is a stranger in the sense of having never met her, she is far from being unfamiliar. Throughout TLW’s run, this woman has been an ardent supporter/advocate of the series, her character and her fans. Laurel has endeared herself to me because of her candor and her willingness to share her thoughts on a wide variety of topics. She has been thoroughly interesting and engaging during her interviews; there has never been an article written or a video seen where I had not come away with something unexpected from her. My admiration for her continues to grow. Although a part of me will be sad with the series ending, another part of me will be happy to see Laurel leave Tina Kennard behind as she ventures into new roles. I have never seen any of her movie performances on the silver screen, having to rent them instead. I look forward to watching her larger than life persona in a crowded theater someday. I give Laurel props for what she has done with Tina; the role could have been easily lost had she not cared about the character and thus made us care too. She could have been bitter about her storyline in S3 and her lack of screen time in S4, but publicly she wasn’t. Instead she simply voiced her concerns to TPTB and gave her feedback regarding how Tina should/would behave; she remained the consummate professional that I had come to expect from her as she provided reassurance to her fans in the process. Since many had turned on the character and, sadly, the actor, I felt the need to champion TeeLu. I was vehement in posting my displeasure concerning the lack of character continuity and development for Tina’s story in S3 and S4. It was bad enough that the character had never been truly fleshed out, but to then saddle Laurel with an unpopular storyline which was never fully explored and to relegate her to “guestbian” status in S4 by simply parading her out to deliver “poopyshit” lines such as her belief that she had a difficult time of conceiving Angelica because she had had two abortions in her early twenties (Really? That’s news to me since no one was privy to Angelica’s insemination; there wasn’t that much time that had lapsed between the miscarriage and Bette’s affair) and how she could feel Bette’s and Jodi’s energy from 10 feet away were absolutely ridiculous. Thank goodness S5 made up for the prior two; I would like to think that it was a result of the fans grousing. Whatever the case, it was evident that more time and effort had been spent writing for the character which allowed Laurel’s innate talent to shine brightly this past season!

    Segue into her acting which immediately intrigued me. I once wrote that when Tina spoke the following two words…“come here”…it produced a Pavlovian response in many of us. Although, what I like most about Laurel’s work is how involved she is in the moment. I find myself watching her scenes again because of what she invariably brings to them when she acts. Laurel is so expressive and exhibits little fear when conveying her character’s emotions; I am simply in awe. She is gifted enough to tell a story without uttering a single word. There is a subtlety to Laurel’s acting which gives Tina depth. I was initially drawn to Tina because of her love for Bette, the looks Tina would shoot her, the touches she would give or kisses she would share; later, I just enjoyed the way in which Tina carried herself much like she did in S5. Laurel is very good demonstrating her physical presence and her interaction with other actors; she often sets the mood with her nonverbal cues. Ironically, there are those who have been critical of her head bobbing, eye rolling and finger pointing, but I’ll defend her use of them as yet another means of conveying Tina’s feelings. I can pretty much silence her critics with two other words, sex scenes. I will not spend an inordinate amount of time discussing them; let’s just say that Laurel continues to raise the bar for her fellow actors to meet or exceed. Regardless of whom she is paired, she is fearless when it comes to conveying her character’s intimacy. S1’s finale was television’s drama at its best, but it was S2’s intimate scenes that garnered more of my respect. There was Laurel, well into her pregnancy, acting opposite not only one actor, but two and looking radiant throughout. I cannot recall another pregnant actor willing to be exposed in that manner nor having spent the hours she did to continue to work on set. She was beautiful and her decision to share herself with us reinforced my belief that she was an exceptional woman. It was mentioned on AE that Laurel’s singular performance in 5.10 was “virtuosic.” I believe much of her work has been virtuosic. Many of her scenes were moving as she engaged this viewer in an emotional gauntlet; I would find myself laughing, crying, happy, sad, occasionally saying WTF, but mostly her masterly acting had me thinking that without her, I would never have vested my time in the series.

    Finally, I cannot understand why Showtime did not do more with the actors to promote TLW as Laurel would have been a natural at it. I could see her warmth, her gregariousness and her articulation penetrating the hearts and minds of many giving even some homophobes pause. Sure it is just a television show, but it merits thoughtful discussion as it relates to sexual identity/orientation as well.

    Anyway, I want to say, “Thank you, Laurel Holloman!” “Happy Birthday” to a special someone whom I have come to care about despite never having met, but feel I know. It is how you live your life and the way you conduct yourself that has earned my deepest respect. At times, you seem to march to the beat of a different drummer…not adverse to challenges, sharing your opinions or passionately supporting causes; these are qualities that are important to me. I hope you are a force to be reckoned with in your future professional and personal endeavors! Good luck…looking forward to you sharing those professional ones with us!

    Enjoy your special day as each day is special for us when we have the opportunity to see you act.

    To dear Laurel,

    Wishing you a very happy birthday, one filled with love and laughter with your family and loved ones.

    I first saw you when you played Randy Dean all those years ago, and had the pleasure of rediscovering you all over again as Tina. I can’t put into words what your portrayal of Tina has meant to me over the years. There are times when I felt like I *was* her, and times when she could have been by sister or my best friend.

    Happy 28th Birthday, Laurel! 😉

    It’s always been fun to watch the show and the Tibette storyline, but with season 5, you became the “one to watch!” You’ve brought so much comedy, snark and confidence to your character and I just want to say thanks for not just parroting lines. It’s like….move over Shane. Tina’s the cool chick now! Keep it up, girl!

    Best wishes to you and your expanding family!

    Today…the L Word stands for Laurel!!!

  311. B says:

    Happy Birthday Laurel. You are the best. Season 5 was yours, not that the others weren’t. I wish I could meet you some day. I also wish that the show would go on for more seasons then 6. You are very talented and I hope we see you in more things. Hope your day is great. Happy Birthday again.

    Go Tibette!!

    I wish you all the best for your future, also for your work and your family.
    What can I more say as ” I love you ” !!!
    But I have one important wish.
    I would love to hear more love words or love declarations from Tina to Bette. Only Bette says “I love you” again and again and Tina ?
    Only one time in the evilator-scene at the end. Please do it in Season 6.

    Love you

    Es un poco tarde, en realidad apenas vengo a enterarme de esta pagina. Pero mas vale tarde que nunca.

    Se que quiza nunca te voy a conocer, ni tu a mi. Pero no es motivo para decirte lo mucho que te aprecio y que te quiero. No sabes lo que he tenido que hacer para poder verte. No quiero que pienses que admiro a tus personaje o personajes porque no es asi. Admiro a esa persona que esta detras de todos ellos, a esa persona que estoy segura paso muchas noches en vela buscando la forma correcta de darle vida a personajes tan increibles, a esa persona que junto a otras estan luchando en pro de una fundacion. Y sabes quien es esa persona. TU LAURELL. Tu has logrado que muchas cosas en mi vida cambien, cosas que seguramente nunca sabras de que se tratan. Solo espero que de verdad algun dia leas este comentario para que asi te puedas dar cuenta que en algun lugar del mundo hay alguien que piensa en ti y que todos los dias le da gracias a Dios por hacer que personas como tu existan. TE QUIERO MUCHO LAURELL HOLLOMAN.
