GWD is one of the best actors of his generation. Sadly, people only get to see the full range of his talent on the stage where he has built a steady reputation and proves his versatility in numerous different roles. He has already proven he can carry a show as the male lead (Forever Knight, Black Harbour)and it's sad to see that he often gets typecast as the villain in most of the TV work he does (although he makes a brilliant villain). It would be really great to have him as the lead in a show again that would enable him to explore a character's depth as opposed to small guest parts and two-minute appearances in movies.
Besides being a great actor, he is also a very down-to-earth person, who is open and gracious towards his fans as I experienced on several occasions meeting him.
