"The fans that I really like are the ones that are really respectful. I don’t want to be intimidated, I like to talk to people and people to talk to me, I don’t want to lose the opportunity to actually talk to people. When people get hysterical, there’s no room for interaction. I’m really grateful for my fans, they’re sensible and a little bit cheeky, they take the piss out of me!" (x)
Mercifully, these days people don’t see being gay as a character flaw. But nor is it a virtue, like kindness. Or a talent, like playing the banjo. It’s just a fact. Of course, it’s part of my make-up, but I don’t want to trade on it. I am a private person; I think that’s important if you’re an actor. But there’s a difference between privacy and secrecy, and I’m not a secretive person. Really I just want to get on with my job, which is to pretend to be lots of different people. Simple as that.
The smile on Andrew’s face as he realizes what Mark’s about to do it’s absolutely precious.
Maybe if I get someone to film me talking about what a brilliant writer he is, Mark will pop up out of no where to give me a smooch.
