We are asked this week about a TV actor or actress we’d really like to meet. Well, here we go again. That isn’t far from the same question about wanting to meet celebrates that we answered last year, and I was stuck then.
Frankly, the older I get, the more I realize that people are people, actors are actors and although I truly appreciate good performances,( I love movies, TV and live performances), that’s their job, and most of the roles are more the writers than the actors themselves.
I would love to meet some of the characters on my favorite shows, but the actors? I’m not star-struck. I’m not opposed to meeting the actors and if the opportunity presented itself, I’d meet a lot of people, but the likelihood of where I now live and meeting the actors isn’t really high.
Thinking through the shows I now watch regularly these days, I find that the majority of them are of a supernatural bent, indeed, Supernatural is among them. If I were young, I’d probably want to meet Jensen Ackles. Probably, but gee, now he’s married.
Among the others I watch are Sleepy Hollow and yes, again, I’d love to meet Ichabod, but the character, not necessarily the actor. I love Psych, but the actors are actors…and the characters are truly characters!
I am suffering because I must watch Once Upon A Time on a delayed basis and I really enjoy all the performances on it, but to meet the actors?I guess but They could live without me as much as I could live without meeting them. Robert Carlyle is always incredible,even as a Bond villain. Lana Parilla, Jennifer Morrison and others are wonderful in their roles, but they have their own lives, as I have mine. It isn’t totally impossible that I could meet Josh Dallas, [Prince Charming],as he is from the Indiana suburbs of Louisville, about 50 miles north of me. He has shown up at the famous Barnstables’s Derby party where the biggest wigs and the hottest celebrities are invited, but since I have chosen to ignore all things Derby-related, that won’t happen. (Yeah, like the socialite Barnstables would ever invite me anyway!)
All the girls are ga-ga over Benedict Cumberbatch and I, too, love his Sherlock but not enough to chase him, even if I were young and single.
Another show I always watch is Grimm. I hope you know it because I’m going to get into it. I do like the main female characters, Juliette and Rosalie, but the men get my real attention. The Captain is so attractive! I love Sgt. Wu, (who has finally been given a first name; it’s Drew….Drew Wu). Hank’s a hunk and Nick! Nick is the whole package. He is so very good-looking, he’s smart, he’s nice, he’s fair and compassionate. He’s a good-guy twice-over: he’s a ‘normal’ police detective and then he is a GRIMM, fighting all the bad things that go bump in the night. He has all the super-reflexes and senses and I am so in love with… Monroe! There is just something about that sensitive, vegan werewolf that I adore. But, hello? Characters again…except that maybe I would like to meet Silas Weir, who plays Monroe. I saw a roundtable of the cast at a convention and he was well-spoken, charming, amusing and best of all, smart; he knew the answers to every question asked, even those that gave the producers pause.
Push comes to shove, of the TV stars out there now, I think I could have great time talking with Silas.
As I said last week, I have a weakness for smart men, even if they are TV actors.
How about you? Anyone on your mind?
