Male On Monday - David Boreanaz
This Monday at The Pink Heart Society, Trish Wylie brings you some rather nice pics of a certain guy known universally as bit of an Angel...
But with just enough hint of bad boy to keep us all interested... If you know what I mean...
David Paul Boreanaz was born in Buffalo, New York on the 16th May 1969 but grew up in Philadelphia and he knew he wanted to be an actor from the age of seven!!! Which you gotta admit, shows a lot of faith and determination from an early age. (Tick number one in the potential hero box)
He got his first role in Married... with Children but only probably hit the radars of his legion of fans as that split personality we all came to know as Angel in Buffy The Vampire Slayer. So what was it about this 6ft 1 'good' vampire without a soul that drew so many fans into the world of David Boreanaz I ask you?
Well, alright, if you want to lower it to the most basic level, then yeah, he's a good looking guy... (Tick number two in the potential hero box)... but there was just something so enthralling about a man who was seeking redemption and love, only to fall in love with the one gal who could turn him back into the monster he had been before. Don't you think???
And he played both the monster AND the angst ridden good guy to such good effect! Who wouldn't be drawn to the guy that helps others while living with the pain of a past he had no control over? Talk about conflict!!! (tick the angst - dark past - seeking redemption - major conflicts boxes there...try to keep up now!)
Oh yes. Has ever there been as popular a male vampire amongst the female masses since Dracula??? Okay, and before I get mown down by the Spike fans I'll clarify that as since Dracula and BEFORE Spike... I know when to duck and cover.
It's not really surprising that having done three years in Buffy (and the first one of you that makes a smutty joke about the way that's worded can just go stand in the corner) his character had become so popular and so compelling to fans that he was due a series of his own. And to many that watched it, he seemed to grow all the more character-wise when out from under his vampire slaying girlfriends shadow (that's just put more of you in the corner hasn't it?). Now we could add dry wit, charm, a dark broodiness that women all over the world would have offered to help him with and a gradual shift from the shadows a little more and into the world were friends and a 'family' were possible for him.
All together now.... awwwww...
According to his friends and family, while they both share a passion for justice, a selfless desire to help others, and a strong sense of right and wrong, they say the friendly, humorous David is very little like his most famous character, the dark, brooding Angel. In fact, in any interviews I have ever seen he is an upbeat, jovial kind of guy... with the kind of wicked twinkle in his eyes that is begging to be added to your latest hero on paper... (Twinkling eyes get a HUGE tick from me btw)
And for those of you currently enjoying David's new role as Special Agent Seeley Booth in the CSI-type series Bones, I have but two things to say. ENJOY. And don't ruin it for me til my DVD arrives!!!! Really, seriously. I'D FIND YOU...
