He plays the president of the DandyLion club in the ITV2 drama Trinity.

His acting is absolutelty stunning and i truly believe his passion for the club, yet i can see that he doesn't want to be the president so he can be with his lover Charlotte Arc (i wish i were her)

and i suppose it goes without saying that, yes, he is drop dead gorgous... i'm in love :)
