As this is such fun...

And it IS Valentine's Day,I thought I'd post my top ten heroes.

I think I may have to give up on the order though because I really really can't decide. I'm also making it a rule that it's the actor as character that I really like. And because I'm being very kind and loving and attentive to you, you can have pictures too.

I'm very very sorry guys... I hope I haven't put you off this blog permanently, but you know, it is only one day of the year, and we girls do like to feel swoony on it, so I'm afraid you have to lump it.

My own hero is taking me out for dinner tonight. I am hoping that he is not going to repeat his offfence of the first Valentine's we were together, way back in the mists of time. I had left a bunch of orchids (=forever) on his car. He gave me a heart made out of dental alginate. It was so squidgy it had to remain in the plastic bag he thoughtfully provided. My fingers had that horrible dental smell, for days afterwards....

So here are my heroes then....


Johnny Depp (of course) as the Earl of Rochester




Viggo Mortenson (before he lost the beard, and IT) as Aragorn


Richard Armitage (what was Marian thinking of shacking up with Robin?) as Guy of Gisborne



Lovely Lovely David Tennant (without whom this list would not be complete) as Dr Who



Daniel Craig (the man who made all the romantic novelists of my acquaintance come over all funny after THAT shower scene) as James Bond



Russell Crowe (yes I know he's an uncouth foulmouthed bore in real life, but he was fab in this) as Maximus Decimus Meridius

Clive Owen (who isn't everyone's cup of tea I know, but he is mine in this) as Arthur



Philip Glenister (for making it possible to be outrageously non PC) as Gene Hunt


Alan Rickman (he can come and haunt me any time) as Jamie


And last, but definitely not least.
Daniel Day Lewis (run that Stay Alive bit by me one more time why don't you) as Hawkeye


Enjoy!

Almost, almost! A couple there I disagree with, but most -well, if I was a few years younger...

You can keep all of them except Alan Rickman - who is intelligent as well. SWOON.
