Good Afternoon, Gratuitous Aneurin Barnard

.
For a movie I didn't like at all I sure do let a lot of Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk into my life - what can I say, it was stuffed with beautiful twinks, and I have content to create.  (See our post on Billy Howle here, and see our post on Freddie Fox here, and see our post on Jack Lowden here, some Fionn Whitehead over here, and see some Barry Keoghan on the Tumblr here...) Point being the only award that Dunkirk really deserved was one for its casting director, but I suppose auditioning all these beautiful twinks was its own sort of award. 

Today it's the turn of Welsh Dunkirk Twink named Aneurin Barnard, who's celebrating his 31st birthday. Can twinks be 31? I don't know. It's somebody else's business to wrangle with those silly homo-linguistic rule games - I'm just here to stare at the pretty young man.

Barnard has done a lot of work already - he was in the horror movie called Citadel in 2012 (I also didn't like that, whoops) and he played a skinny-dipping King Richard on The White Queen (you'll see some nice gifs of that down below). And he's got a lot of work lined up too - he's in John Crowley's follow-up to Brooklyn called The Goldfinch (sidenote: the young version of him in the film's being played by Stranger Things' Finn Wolfhard which is actually really great casting don't you think?) with Ansel Elgort...

... and Nicole Kidman; that's out later this year. And he's part of the great big cast for Armando Iannucci's forthcoming take on David Copperfield, along the likes of Tilda Swinton and Ben Whishaw. So you're going to see a lot of him soon! Up to and including the rest of this post, where I'm sharing dozens and dozens of pictures of him right on after the jump...

Looks like Rufus Sewell's little brother.

In the immortal words of Louis Virtel: I'm turning 25 this week, which means I'm graduating from twink to nameless embarrassment."

The Goldfinch is actually coming out on October...2019, unfortunately.
