I went through my files, my dear, and picked some of my best-- feel better soon, but don't forget to play up that *take it easy* stuff for all it's worth. there are 30 shots here.
First of all, I will share this - I had these two pics up on my desk top and confused one of my best buddys. "Where is that pic of David in the blue shirt from" she asked.
"That's Hugh Jackman"
"But... But....." *mad giggles* "Your Faramirs!!"
It's true, he was on my list before I saw Blond Boromir. We were talking life long visuals, and she asked who I would consider. My image has always been young Gregory Peck, and I knew I was unlikely to get that. I wanted dark hair, fair skin, piercing eyes (ok, so I *am* a celt) and amazing forearms.
"What about Johnny Depp?" she asked.
"Too baby faced - and besides, he's my Elrohir. But I'd like to see long hair on Hugh Jackman - that might be an answer."
When the Van Helsing hair photos first appeared, there was much shared laughter here.
At the time, as I said, we didn't expect fair haired Gondorim. And I didn't know anyone else who knew who David was. ("Red Headed Faramir?" said Chris. "Just what celtic voodoo did you do?") How amazing is it that I got my favorite boy to play my favorite boy?
But I stand by the thought - Hugh has a good rangery look.
