Stana Katic Live Chat!  
I took notes during the Live Chat that Stana had. I did my best with putting everything down, the actual transcript will have it all down better then I do but until it's up for everyone to read, for those who couldn't make it, here you go:

- Stana will be flying out to Rome on July 3rd for the Fiction Festival.

- Stana's favorite song(s) that are on her iPod right now are: The Raconteurs - Consolers of the lonely (It was a big companion on her road trip recently.), Berlin Serengeti, Paolo Nutini's Candy, Andres Segovia, Evertbody Here Wants You by Jeff Buckley, Led Zeppelin, Mars Volta. She said there's a bit of everything on here iPod from rock to classical, folk dance, the list goes on but she just loves music.

- If anyone were to play Beckett's gay bestfriend, Stana would welcome anyone.

- When asked if She would ever had Noah Wylie on 'Castle', She said that she loves working with Noah and that it would be a piece of magic to be able to work with him again and that he's truly a wonderfully intelligent gentleman and SO talented. She hopes the producers would consider bringing him on if his schedule allows it.

- If she could perform with any band it would be "Jack White... hands down..."

-  'For Lovers Only' was a blast to film and that She and the Polish Brothers "pretty much hopped onto this gypsy caravan ride of creativity across France...".

- 'For Lovers Only' is a love story that is in the style of French New Wave (A Man & a Woman) and that there is no definite release date. She "hopes that we pack up into a winnebago followed by a yugo-full of mariachi players  and hop from town to town next summer to promote the film."

- If she could work with one celebrity, past or present it would be Daniel Day Leis, Richard Burton, Russell Crowe, Jack Nicholson and the list goes on.

- Mary (the horse) did have her baby. She is Stana's friend's horse.

Stana is off this week to shoot 'The Double' in Detroit with Richard Gere where she'll be playing a 'fiesty russian prostitute' and that she cannot wait!

The elephants that are seen on Beckett's desk have no names."I have a group of friends from Chile who said it is a part of the custom in their part of Chile to arrange elephant figurines in a row with a folded bill in the first one's trunk to bring good luck and fortune."

Stana had a chance to sit down with the creator of 'Castle' and another producer (Andrew Marlowe and Laurie Zaks) to ask about plans for the new year. They start filming again on July 12 and that their are defintley plans to delve deeper into beckett's mother's murder.

Stana has visited Australia. She saw the Sydney Opera House, Circluar Quay, Harbour Bridge, "had pie and sausage roll... the people are amazing!!!"

- Stana's favorite episode of 'Castle' has been Sucker Punch."loved learning more about beckett's backstory.. and getting a chance to explore more of what makes her tick.. and the second part of the two-parter-- thought beckett really came into her own.. learned a lot from agent shaw... and of course, the action was a BLAST!!!"

- On watching the World Cup: "My brother has the television under occupation... So, there's not much choice for watching anything else... but i LOOOOOOOOOOOVE it... what a GREAT sport!"

These are among the many favorite films of hers: DogDay Afternoon, There will be blood, The Princess Bride, City Of God, Raging Bull, The Note Book, Dazed and Confused, Rida, The Piano Teacher, Dreamlife Of Angels, Run Lola Run, Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, Dr Strangelove, Out of Africa and many more.

The Librarian 3 ring that Stana often wears was a gift from the producers and that she loves the ring."the moment we found that ring, the whole character came together.."

She named her birthday puppy (which was a stuffed dog sent to her for her birthday)"CONAN... he's a barbarian."

The little bowl seen on Beckett's desk in a 'Castle' episode that Beckett & Castle have eaten out of is "skittles sometimes.. and runts the other times..."

Dannis the stunt corrdinator on 'Castle' "knows i love action stuff... so, he lets me do pretty much all of it when possible... michael trucco and i spent hours on the chreography for the fight sequence you saw in the demming/beckett sparring session."

- Stana
uses Christian Doir and Givenchy Mascara.

Of all the great female film and TV roles in history, Stana would have loved to have played Margarita from 'The master and magarita', Anne Bonny a pirate and Cleopatra (not the hyped up hollywood version).

- Stana
tries to get involed with Children's Hospital LA Triathlon."because of filming, i dont think we'll be able to put another team castle together.. but i'll be there in august to do readings for the children"

- Stana
would LOVE to do another Comic Book Film. Filming Morganstern was a BLAST. She will be going to Comic Con this year and it's her first time attending. She'd loved to play any Comic Cook character. "anything... throw it my way: Talia al Ghul, wonder woman, harley quinn, g.i. jane.... looooove that world."

When Stana was around 6 yrs old her favourite color to color with was yellow and it is also her favourite lollipop flavour. (She was asked by a 6 yr old what her favorite color to color with was).

- Stana would love to be a bond girl in another Bond Film. - In which Shakespearean character she'd like to play the most it would be "kate.. taming of the shrew... in new york... that would be a riot!... all we have to do is find my richard burton... and the name thing wouldn't phase me.. 'case... well, you know."

When asked what would she do for some Wine Gums right now, Stana answered "eeeevil.... veeeeery evil. :)"

When asked if anything was going to happen between Castle and Beckett in Season 3, Stana answered, "HUGE, ginormous, rip-roaring, rambunctious make-out session... and let me tell you... KB blows his socks off (insert wink here). or maybe not :)"

- Stana
will try and do another live chat before the summer ends.

- The transcript will be on StanaKatic.com later next week.

And that was the end of it. The 'Castle and Beckett Season 3' question with Stana's answer is HILARIOUS! xD

No problem. I guess I arrived to the chat a little too late (No one was chatting but Stana so I assume I was too late and just had to watch it, which I had no problem with) so catching all Stana's answers was easy.

I've never used Chatzy before so it was all new to me. But all in all It was fun to read her answers, especially her tease of an answer to do with Castle & Beckett for Season 3. Just when I thought I couldn't love her more, she sets it up another notch with her answers. She also talked more about the Cleopatra part (the history) but I didn't get all of it, but she sure educated me on some of it XD

Aw thanks so much for the overview! Did she have a nice turn out for the chat, alot of people?

I assume so, I think I arrived too late to the chat to actually get in but I still got to read her answers which is the main reason I came on there. And you're very welcome :)

I laughed at her answer and I wasn't even tired. I actually didn't expect her to give that kind of answer but the fact that she actually did answer like that made me love her even more. Hopefully no one took that answer as a fact. I know some people would believe that answer. But hopefully when the time comes that, that answer will come to life :P
