So did y'all watch Man in an Orange Shirt on PBS last night? I wanna hear your thoughts! The above picture comes via an interview with Julian for Out magazine about Orange Shirt - at first I thought I'd posted that shot before but it's actually a slight variant of a shot posted back here, so it's new! Hooray for new pictures of Julian. (Thx.) Anyway I know I've played Amateur Sleuth when it comes to Julian's private life to a weird obsessive extent before but this bit from this Out interview (referring to his character) really stuck out to me:
"Does Adam have a sex addiction?” Morris ponders. “I think he’s unable to have a relationship. Then again, should gay men lead lives that mimic heterosexual lives?”
Is that a question a straight man would ponder? That doesn't really feel like the sort of question a straight person would openly ponder, not even one that's played a gay character. I mean that's not even precisely the struggle that his character is grappling with in the show, at least not as I read it. Adam's problem was more with needing to feel worthy of love. Anyway all that word-picking-apart aside tell me your thoughts on Man in an Orange Shirt in the comments if you feel inspired, and don't forget the film hits blu-ray tomorrow if you wanna grab a copy too. ETA Julian posted a few behind-the-scenes pictures on his Instagram...
