So when I started looking into the behind-the-scenes footage of "Doctor Who" stars, Matt Smith and Karen Gillan, I found such a sweet surprise.
There was a slew of Comic-Con San Diego footage of the two co-stars. But for me, finding a couple of interviews they did together completely made my heart leap.
You know how much I love Love. And how excited I get when there's true romance being expressed. Well these two folks, Matt and Karen, have some of the best chemistry I have ever seen. And to my disappointment they were not dating. In fact, they both still have significant others. Whyyyy.
Seeing those two laugh and chat together was like a double whammy for me. Not only did they carry the British swag, but they had a stellar shared sense of humor. And yes, they're both beautiful. But when they're around one another, they become even more beautiful. Yes. Cheesy I know. I can't help myself. But they are true of the cliche, that they bring out the best in one another. Truly complimentary.
And it got me thinking. "Yes. That's what I want. That's what I've been wanting all along."
I know what you're thinking Does my future boo have to have an accent, dress well, and be a superstar? Not necessarily. But it wouldn't hurt him one bit. But for me, the deal-breaker has always been a shared sense of humor. And going down the line... Someone who is strong, not afraid to smile--even when pictures aren't being taken. Someone who is intentional and brave. Considerate and kind. And someone who is intelligent enough to asks questions, but not bullheaded enough to think they know all the answers. In one word: Humble.
And that brings me back to Andrew Garfield and my other British love, Andrew-Lee Potts. Last year around this time, I happened to catch the SyFy's channel, "Alice". A modern day take on the "Alice in Wonderland" story. Andrew-Lee played the Mad Hatter and did a brilliant job. His Mad Hatter was fierce, selfish, eccentric and at the same time, somehow believably vulnerable. Beyond the "Alice" credit, Andrew-Lee was also in the HBO mini-series "Band of Brothers".
I was recently re-introduced to Andrew-Lee again this year through the BBC show, "Primeval". And I thought to myself, "Yep. He's a keeper."
But more to come on why, he's been labeled as such in my mind.
Mostly, I would love to be "Best Mates" as the Brits would say, or "Best Friends" with my future boo. And if he happens to carry that British Swag. More power to him.
Write the vision down and make it plain.
