John Barrowman

I discovered John Barrowman on Season One of Doctor Who and he now has his own spinoff show called "Torchwood." Since then I have come to be a huge fan of his. He is not only a talented, handsome actor, but he is funny, he can dance and has an amazing voice. I thought I would share a video of him and Ruthie Henshall (stage actress who dated Prince Edward for a while) singing "Anything You Can Do" on a British television series that highlights musical numbers.

On top of that, he has written a book called "Anything Goes" which Amazon describes as: "From his Glaswegian childhood and American adolescence to his starring role in the Doctor Who spinoff Torchwood, this memoir traces the life and career of actor John Barrowman. John made a name for himself with remarkable West End achievements, including an Olivier Award nomination and success in the movies The Producers and De-Lovely. Television success was also assured when Torchwood won a Best Drama BAFTA. John also lays bare his personal life: his emigration as a child, coming out to his family, turning down a job at Disney, and his civil partnership with long-term partner Scott Gill. Revelatory and insightful, told with real heart and characteristic Barrowman charm, this is a wonderful tale of how one boy achieved his dreams."

It's on a list of books I want to read and on my Amazon wishlist *cough*
