See this face? How can you not love this face? I've made this my default icon and also my wallpaper on my laptop which I debated naming Ed, Westwick, or Chuck last night [for other names being considered please see below]. Yes. I am that obsessed. No, I *don't* care that he's only 20 and plays a 16/17 year old on tv. IT'S ALL PRETEND PEOPLE. There's something about this photo shoot that puts me in mind of Jim Morrison and that makes it doubly hot.
Yes, I do listen to Ed's band. Not *quite* obsessively, but I listen to it and have them on at least 1 spin mix. Yes, he [and Blair] are really the only reasons I swoon all over Gossip Girl. I realize that he's not pretty like this all the time. In fact from some angles he's downright weird bordering on fugly.
I. Do. Not. Care.
He's also very hairy, has dubious hygiene, and his English accent is decidedly ... not upper-crust.
I. Do. Not. Care.
Move over Lex. Step aside Dean.
Now, see this face?
That's really my *newest* obsession. This is Mitchell from a BBC pilot called Being Human
Mitchell is a vampire that lives with a werewolf and a ghost.
Did you see that? Mitchell is a vampire
Move over Spike. Step aside Deacon Frost. There's a brand new blood sucker in town. He smokes. He broods. He wears lots and lots of black and tacky silver jewelry. He has piercing eyes. He's too skinny to be healthy and he makes my heart go thumpa thumpa.
And my last [but not least] newest Brit crush, the incomparable Gareth David Lloyd, aka Ianto Jones of Torchwood.
He sings. Very well, particularly Doors covers [are we sensing a boys with bands theme?] Don't believe me? see for yourself
Now, I'd hate to tell one Draco Malfoy or one Severus Snape that they've been usurped so I won't. Let's just say I've sorted three new hotties into Slytherin to keep them company.
