  • Quotes

  • From Lincoln to Texas.

    You're a brit speaking in American accent. that itself is hard enough.

    so enough said.

    please stay in TWD.

  • Original character builder.

    His work is different, not only because of his choices when it comes to the projects he will participate in, but because of the endearing conviction with which he depicts his characters. However lost or amoral they may be at times, thanks to his performance, they come across as having the atmost faith in their life decisions, regardless of the consequences, and that gives them a seductiveness hard to achieve. It's difficult not to be captivaded by the emotive, sensuous approach he has to acting, where the tactile quality of his emotions regarding those surrounding him and his own motivations has the most bewitching effect on his audience.moreless
