I've been asked to compile a list of "my boys". I define "my boys" as actors who I absolutely love watching and who I'll watch a movie/show for-- just because they're in it. Believe me, I've watched some pretty HORRIBLE movies because one or more of "my boys" were in them, however briefly. Then there's also the emotional pull towards the guy- wanting to read any news piece that comes my way, subscribing to groups to find out what their current projects/exploits are, etc. I don't have membership to any official fan clubs *yet* though.

  • Ewan McGregor
  • John Barrowman
  • Ioan Gruffudd
  • Dougray Scott
  • Liam Neeson
  • Peter Wingfield
