This blog’s sole intent is to enjoy Colin’s talent, his wonderful portrayals … never intruding on his private life.
This man embodies a talent we feel was overlooked by many, though not all, who only seemed to see his exterior. Yes, he has grown physically from a rather gangly youth, though not in the awkward sense, into a compelling young man, but this attractive exterior will never overshadow his comely interior, which houses an innate ability that ‘knows’ things deeper and more true than can ever be explained by the outward look of him.
It’s there in his ability to transmit emotion in his face, no gestures, no dialogue, just a furrowing of the brow, a mist in his eyes, a contortion of muscles that speaks to anguish or sorrow or joy … or Nathan’s madness. Always true to the particular character he is capturing.
He changes his gait, his posture, the sound in his voice. Moving from Merlin to Cathal to Nathan is a whole different world. Our admiration is without limit.
It is my opinion that Colin will remain private. He has already managed to field a lot of questions and with good humor simply will not be pulled into answering them. He has kept his family and friends private. Curious as some may be, there is only conjecture by those who cannot bear to leave him alone. He is on solid ground and knows how to handle fame. He has shown every indication that he will not be wooed into a frivolous life.
