Now that I have got over him as Fred West and have started watching Thr Affiar. He's gorgeous and I have just spent the last half hour finding videos of him talking in his normal English accent.

He will always be Fred West to me. I wish he hadn't played that part.

He was in a film called ' Pride' about the 80s miners strikers in Wales. He played a gay man who could really dance. I thought he was brilliant as Fred West too. Very unrated actor.

I've only seen him in The Wire. I've herd The Affair is pretty good. Isn't he married to someone terribly posh?

Tomatoesareyum Tue 03-Nov-15 13:28:07

I think he's the most fantastic actor and yes, The Affair is excellent

hebihebi Tue 03-Nov-15 13:28:42

Oh, apparently he's terribly posh in real life too. I just can't imagine it somehow. I'll have to find an interview with him. I've only heard him doing accents.

He made a documentary recently about going on a pilgrimage to India with his old school friend who is some kind of holy man.

I won't lie, I fancied them both.

I liked him in the first 2-3 series of The Wire, until his character started pissing me off. Now his character in the Affair is pissing me off grin

So I am sort of on the fence with him.

I would.

He went to Eton I believe and his wife has a title, so pretty posh!

In fact the wife's family are selling up the ancestral Irish pile, Tatler had an article on it recently.

(I'm not v posh and don't regularly read Tatler)

DH totally understands my love for the marvellous Mr West - he is a little unnerved by my having a mutual friend with him.

He's a great actor but his face is too mobile for me to fancy

leedy Tue 03-Nov-15 15:33:57

Friend of mine went on a date with him when we were in college. Apparently quite full of himself.

TinklyLittleLaugh Tue 03-Nov-15 15:36:59

Oh God he is so so hot in The Wire. He just does this, "Come on let's have a shag, you know you want to" smile. So so hot.

AuntGertrude Tue 03-Nov-15 16:24:56

He was brilliant as Professor Higgins in My Fair Lady in Sheffield a couple of years ago -

OnlyLovers Tue 03-Nov-15 16:26:13

Oh I can't bear him! Genuinely think he's ugly, and I get the impression he's totally in love with himself.

I don't think he can act either. Was shit in The Hour; totally outclassed by Romola Garai, Anna Chancellor et al.

Sorry if that's put a bit of a damper on things. blush grin

MitzyLeFrouf Tue 03-Nov-15 16:29:00

I can't tell whether you like him or not OnlyLovers. Stop being so vague!

LoisWilkersonsLastNerve Tue 03-Nov-15 16:30:27

He's a terrific actor. I can't say I noticed his appearance. *sniffs

OnlyLovers Tue 03-Nov-15 16:30:55

grin Mitzy.

LoisWilkersonsLastNerve Tue 03-Nov-15 16:32:25

jeff face is too mobile? Please explain! grin

MitzyLeFrouf Tue 03-Nov-15 16:33:58

I don't know about DW's face being too mobile but David Tenant's definitely is! And Jim Carrey's.

Stop wiggling your faces men!

Maudofallhopefulness Tue 03-Nov-15 16:38:52

I used to fancy him, but went off him knowing he's an Eton boy. Like Damian Lewis, I went off him too. I'm an oik.

LoisWilkersonsLastNerve Tue 03-Nov-15 16:39:24

Arf! I get it now. Ta mitzy

LoisWilkersonsLastNerve Tue 03-Nov-15 16:42:35

OnlyLovers Tue 03-Nov-15 16:49:45
