Jason: (On his character Phil in Queer as Folk (UK)) I was so proud to be a part of it. I had this huge gay following too, I found out afterwards. Gay men would come up to me to tell me my character, Phil, was their ideal man. I suppose a lot of men identified with him. He was very different from the characters played by Aidan Gillen and Craig Kelly, who were more like sexy movie stars. I was bigger back then and camp. And let's face it, a lot of those guys are camp, so they loved him.
