I recently began watching a new PBS series called BEECHAM HOUSE and was totally mezmerized by TOM BATEMAN’s tall, slim, rugged good looks… TOTAL EYE CANDY!
Oh how right you are! His acting – facial expressions are just superb and I will be looking for him in the future. You are a star Tom Bateman.
Just finished watching “Behind Her Eyes” and thought I had come across yet another gorgeous tall dark Scotsman, but after reading Tom Bateman’s biography, he is, indeed, an Englishman !!!!!! Being Scottish myself, I have to say Mr. Bateman did a very wonderful job of delivering a Scottish brogue. I’m still convinced there is still some “north of the border” heritage lurking around somewhere. It was so refreshing to read that he considers himself a private, old- fashioned man. Sounds like a handsome YOUNG man destined for an outstanding acting career.
