This much I know: Anthony Head. He talks about enjoying the lines on his face and learning from animals.

Anthony Head tells us what he has learnt from his days as an actor.

What a lovely man. Funny and wise.
Yeah, he seems to have an idea of how to live your life. Nice man.

Not sure about his "don't do to an animal what you wouldn't do to a child" point though, that sounds like a well intended but slightly woolly comment. Doesn't he ride horses ?
What Lioness said. ♥

Hee.

He sounds sweet though, yes.
He is just plain wonderful. Loved the line about Sarah & Alyson and the Magazine Covers. Who knew.
I do love that man.

That bit about the Klingons was hilarious! I can just see him look up from signing an autograph to see a Klingon in full battle gear standing in front of him. How do you not yelp?

It seems like they kinda...thinned out his responses, though. I'm sure he expanded on the "Don't do to an animal" bit. He doesn't ride very much; his horse Otto (That he rode in "Lessons") is the spokes-horse for Tilley Farm and is pretty much retired. Sarah primarily works with horses, but she also helps a wide variety of other pets, from dogs to turtles. (Yes, she once had a turtle that...would not come out of its shell. I swear I'm not making this up.)

I remember at Motor City Buffy someone actually had the nerve to ask him if he'd ever get cosmetic surgery, and he said he was totally against it. Smart man.
This really makes me yearn for something to do with Ripper. I would be fine with even a comic book miniseries or something. Have Giles I mean Head involved in some way.

Maybe even do like an audio adventure, with him reading his past like memoirs or whatever. I'd love to hear Giles' voice again.
Shucks, I was hoping to get an explanation for the line across his forehead that's always so dramatic... but at least now I know that he really likes it.
ManEnoughToAdmitIt He did explain it in an interview some years ago. Damned if I can remember what caused it, though. In "Merlin" that's a scar on Uther's forehead - I'm hoping there's an interesting explanation at some point.
I agree with Dane. It would be great to see Ripper in any form at this point.
I also agree with Lioness, because he certainly does seem like an amazing guy.
Great interview, love the man even more because of his comment about animals. Which was obviously not meant literally but rather to address kindness vs. cruelty.

Literally would be especially strange, unless he's a strict vegan. ;)
Or unless he eats babies.
Well, he does, but only the delicious ones.
Shucks. You got my hopes up, ShadowQuest.
Or unless he eats babies.

Mmm, crunchy. Or maybe he rides them ? If, in twenty years or so, there's a plague of lower back problems in the Bath area we'll know who to blame.
You utter creep, Saje - you don't write, you don't call, and then you come back and make with the Henny Youngman - i.e., steal the baby-riding joke I was just about to post one minute after you, apparently...

The sheer wanton-albeit-unconscious cruelty of that far surpasses the inhumanity of either riding or eating babies and I bet you do both. :P

And I believe kittens are far crunchier than babies. Or so I've read.

ASH always sounds like a gent. Unlike some. ; >
Didn't realise he was at the Old Vic at the moment... might see if I can try and get there before I miss the chance.
Babies are squishy. They are only crunchy if you deep-fry them.
Says one who now knows ;).
Are you suggesting that I deep-fry babies? I like to think I'm more health-conscious than that. A bit of poached baby with a salad, thankyouverymuch.


...I'm starting to gross myself out.
My Mom used to say "if you kids keep horsing around like this there will be tears before midnight," and now I know what she meant. ; >

In fact, it's not unheard of for me to eat the very baby i'm riding (not the arms or legs obviously, that'd be weirdly self-defeating). Wanton -> Wantoner -> Wantonest. Reach for the stars I say.

(sorry to pip you at the post QG but it just goes to prove that baby riding is the next big thing - it's clearly in the air *puts every spare penny into tiny baby saddles*)

Babies are squishy. They are only crunchy if you deep-fry them.

Err, you're eating it aren't you ? So of course it's deep fried, that's how you know it's food. Don't tell me* people actually allow non-deep-fried "food" to pass their lips in America ? Where do you make your heart attacks in that case ?


*... no seriously, don't tell me, the very idea's unsettling.
ManEnoughToAdmitIt Ok, please forgive me, as I was foggy on this at the time, and I'm probably mis-remembering, but...it's a gall line, which has something to do with Chinese medicine/acupuncture. I don't know what caused it to appear, or when it did (Someone said mid-season two, but I've seen earlier pictures of him, and it's noticeable then).

Saje, QuoterGal, catherine Come now! You're forgetting the ketchup! Don't you remember the famous quote? "For babies are crunchy and taste good with ketchup."

Shey I've heard mixed reports. Some folks say he's a vegetarian, some say not. I wasn't sitting @his table during the banquet @MCB, so I couldn't say. But he did order nachos in the sports bar on Sunday while waiting for his ride to the airport. (Andy Hallett had a nice big burger, but he ate by himself, because he was a shy eater.)

But that brings up an interesting point - if an actor is a vegetarian or a vegan, and the role calls for their character to eat a hot dog (Like Tony did in "Imagine Me & You") does the caterer or whoever is in charge of set food make sure they've got special "prop" food for that actor?
ShadowQuest : and of course in your real-world-Buffyverse crossover fic you played it safe and had Tony stick with salad only, like Amber, while Willow, Xander, and Dawn had more omnivorous approaches.

Before anyone comments, she hasn't posted that story on public sites.
