Actors you fancy vs characters you fancy

Does anyone else think like this?

I think Jamie Fraser (Outlander) is knee wobblingly gorgeous but although Sam Heughan is a lovely looking man he just doesn't do it for me. Just be the kilt wink

Kunal Nayyar is a lovely looking man in real life but as Raj in The Big Bang Theory he just doesn't stand out...

Who are yours?

John Thornton in North and South but Richard Armitage - seems nice enough but meh. Must be the Victorian thing grin

I love Indiana Jones and Han Solo. Harrison Ford always struck me as a bit of a knob though grin
Likewise with Agent Mulder and David Duchovny.

Luther is hot, Idris Elba is not. Somehow.

Johnny Castle in Dirty Dancing - but not Patrick swayze

Loki is hot as all fuck. Tom Hiddleston just doesn't do it for me at all.

Orlando Bloom only as Legolas

I've always had a massive thing for Captain Jack Sparrow blush. Johnny Depp however can do one!

Viggo Mortensen as stryder, but not as Viggo!

I like Benedict C as Sherlock and some of this other characters, I do not find him attractive at all. Find him really irritating!

Cain Dingle is yummy. .
Until you remember he is called Jeffrey. .

Viggo Mortensen only as Aragorn. Don't fancy him remotely in anything else.

Waytoogo Wed 13-Sep-17 19:04:41

I came on to say Sam Heughan too. As Jamie Fraser he's drop dead gorgeous, but in real life? Nope, you can keep him*!

*He cancelled his appearance at the Outlander convention when I had paid £110 to see him and been looking forward to it for months and months. Twat!

And I'm with you on Sam Vs Jamie

MoanaofMotunui Wed 13-Sep-17 19:16:38

Jared Leto as The Joker. Without the make up, he doesn't do it for me 😂

Timefortea99 Wed 13-Sep-17 19:18:45

Aidan Turner - As Poldark, hot. As AT, not so much.

iamdivergent Wed 13-Sep-17 19:19:17

Yes to Aragorn but not Viggo, Legolas but not Orlando. I must admit I like Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch in all forms blush

Glad it's not just me 're Sam/Jamie - I don't know what it is but Sam is just meh

iamdivergent Wed 13-Sep-17 19:19:59

waytoogo I would have been so pissed off!

LorelaiVictoriaGilmore Wed 13-Sep-17 19:20:01

I tend to fancy characters who are playing high flying professionals doctors, lawyers etc. such as Will from Good Wife, Harvey from Suits, McDreamy from Grey's Anatomy, House from House MD, Josh from West Wing... When I remember they are actors, I go off them fast!

CourtneyLoveIsMySpiritAnimal Wed 13-Sep-17 19:20:13

My first thought was Sam Heughan. He does absolutely nothing for me in real life, but as Jamie Fraser...

Same also for RA as Thornton. And someone mentioned Patrick Swayze but it would be as Bodhi from Point Break for me. Must be the hair blush

iamdivergent Wed 13-Sep-17 19:23:04

My sex drive peaks when I watch outlander blush though not the last two of season 1 sad

I forgot about McDreamy! He was a wet blanket in Bridget Jones Baby!

outofmymind2 Wed 13-Sep-17 19:23:47

Anyone seen once upon a time on Netflix? Amazing series!

I'm completely obsessed with Captain Hook. The actor himself (Colin Donoghue I think it's spelt) is beautiful but as Hook he's just something else 😂 Must be the hook and the leather 🙄

VivaNoLikey Wed 13-Sep-17 19:24:44

Kate McKinnon but only in Ghosbusters.

youngestisapsycho Wed 13-Sep-17 19:26:03

Wolverine but not Hugh Jackman
Edward Cullen but not Robert Pattinson
Bill Compton but not Stephen Moyer
