Yep, I know, I’m as fickle as the finger of fate. But as a writer, I have to learn to love more than one hero. It's my cross to bear, ;). Well, that’s my excuse anyway.
So imagine my excitement when Henry Cavill and I were introduced (via the magic medium that is tv!). He had me at a disadvantage as I was sick in bed and unable to move very far. He forced me to watch him as Charles Brandon in The Tudors, where he proceeded to nail anything that moved in Season 1 and most of Season 2! But even while I shook my head sadly at how utterly scandalous his behaviour was, I was secretly rooting for him to be worthy of his part.
And he came through.
By the end of Series 2 and through all of Season 3, he'd grown a conscience, had shown his wife Catherine that he truly loved and desired her and their son above all else and had proved he could be ruthless when he needed to be to save his country and his friend (Henry VIII).
It was very very natural therefore, seeing as he’s just the sort of man I love writing about (not so much the nailing part, but the redeemed rake part), that I model him on my next hero. Before I do, however, I will enjoy him for a little while longer!
And seeing as I'm feeling magnanimous today, I thought I'd share his pic with y'all.
PS - Sorry about the, ahem, legs and bossoms.
