Was just watching Liar, the new series on ITV, earlier, which he's in.


Please don't crush my dreams and tell me I'm being U grin

He is bloody gorgeous. I've said it the past 20-odd years.

I've had my beady eye on him for a couple of decades at least a while as well. Yanbu.

3 posts in and no Hornblower joke yet. YADNBU.

Forever was very watchable in a slightly schlocky, genre way. He's very pretty in that. and nice period breeches for some of it

What was Liar like? I see it's the Williams brothers writing. They're suddenly everywhere (The Missing etc.)

Yes he's alright.

I'll look into Liar

PolkaDotty7 Tue 12-Sep-17 02:15:17

Ooh yes I liked him in Fantastic Four. He played Mr Fantastic wink

FenellaMaxwellsPony Tue 12-Sep-17 02:18:00

Oooh yes. I've thought he was very watchable since he did great Expextations about 20 years ago!

Met his wife a few times though and she was consistently less than pleasant, which slightly coloured my judgement of him.

He's flipping gorgeous YADNBU

SerfTerf I was raging when Forever was cancelled! He's lovely in it.

You're rather late to the party, and joining the back of a very long queue, I've fancied him since the 90s.

Great to see him playing a part like this in Liar though and not a hero/superhero for a change.

I've had a crush on him for years. I may even know every scene in Titanic where he appears... I've even subjected myself to watching 102 Dalmations through my love of him grin

I met him once, years ago, via work and he flirted outrageously with me. I had no idea who he was until I spotted him on breakfast tv! He was indeed gorgeous and very twinkly but teeny tiny and had very big hair and minuté little shorts on!

RosaDeZoett Tue 12-Sep-17 06:59:48

I was coming on to totally agree..... But then the Titanic reference threw me..... I then realised I was confusing Ioan Gruffudd with Rhys Ifans blush (it's all those lovely rolling Welsh vowels) Rhys I totally would, Ioan, not so much! 😂

I imagine that this is why he's been cast in this particular role in Liar: no-one can really believe that the good-looking, charming, slightly self-deprecating guy could be a rapist.

FenellaMaxwellsPony Tue 12-Sep-17 07:35:08

@FosterDog123 are you sure that was him? He's quite tall....

cheesydoesit Tue 12-Sep-17 07:49:10

Yes! I first noticed him in Warriors on BBC when I was a young pup.

squoosh Tue 12-Sep-17 07:52:08

'^He was indeed gorgeous and very twinkly but teeny tiny and had very big hair and minuté little shorts on'

Do he's basically a Welsh Ronnie Corbett?

thatstoast Tue 12-Sep-17 07:52:26

I have also met Ioan Grufydd. There was no outrageous flirting as I was 15-16 at the time but he's at least 5'10.

I loved Forever. I think objectively I knew it wasn't great and really schmaltzy but worse shows get renewed.

elfinpre Tue 12-Sep-17 07:53:19

He's 11cm taller than me and over 6ft. If that's teeny tiny, I like teeny tiny.

imjustanerd Tue 12-Sep-17 07:53:19

I've loved him since the Hornblower days, he's gorgeous

BabsGanoush Tue 12-Sep-17 08:01:09

hummmm Liar.

Could be good, but so 'made for TV' with beautiful people everywhere - even the female Detective had flawless makeup.

and why the police cars with flashing lights outside the house, with forensically suited SOCO's throughout the house hmm Why where they dusting the coffee table? He's admitted being there FGS.

Dr Foster it aint.

Fosterdog123 Tue 12-Sep-17 09:24:14

Well now you've thrown me. I WAS 100% certain it was him. They were there filming and I met Christina Ricci too. It was a looooong time ago - about 16 years ago - but I remember him being about 5'8 ish but tiny more in a build way - very slim and slight.

TableMirror Tue 12-Sep-17 09:34:22

Does anyone remember him in "Love in the 21st Century" on C4?

Great series if I recall, google tells me it was 2009!

Peachypie83 Tue 12-Sep-17 09:53:32

@TableMirror Yes I do! His wife caught him wanking over a girlie mag 😂
