A Million Miles from Canal Street …
Personally, I thought it was a wind up when I first saw it mentioned on Facebook. I remember watching Mr Hunnam as a weedy teenager, “coming out” on the Channel 4 series Queer As Folk and have brief recollections of him starring in Byker Grove several years before that.
The first shock to me was how did he go from this …
to this …
Well, I’m guessing about 15 years helped!
It would appear that once I forget about someone, in my head they stop aging. It’s all a little strange.
This guy had dropped completely off my radar.
It turns out Mr Hunnam has starred in a few things since Queer As Folk, none of which I’ve ever heard of. I’m assuming (or at least, hoping) some of them have given him practice speaking in an American accent.
Remembering his performance in Queer As Folk, he’s certainly had lots of practice getting naked and naughty in front of the camera!
Although, not with such a feminine partner…
My second shock of Monday evening was that said feminine partner had gone from starring in The Cat In The Hat to the role of Anastasia … turned out, I had the wrong Dakota!
I’ve seen quite a lot of complaints on Facebook today regarding the casting of Mr Grey, the majority of people wanted Ian Somerhalder in the main role. I assumed someone similar to Ian Somerhalder would get offered the role.
Me … well, I had absolutely no interest in seeing this movie until they put a Geordie in the line up.
Now, I’m quite looking forward to it!
