Met­calfe likes to re­lease his in­ner cow­boy

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - WEDNESDAY EXTRA -

JESSE Met­calfe (pic­tured) is thank­ful that the Dal­las re­boot doesn’t in­clude shoul­der pads. The ac­tor por­trays Christo­pher Ewing in the new se­ries of the orig­i­nal 1980s TV show and says he’s glad the on-screen out­fits aren’t as gar­ish as they were on the old se­ries. ‘‘The show’s not tak­ing place in the ’80s any­more, so thank­fully the shoul­der pads are out. The cool things about Dal­las is you get to dress up and be part of a mega-rich fam­ily, but we’re all on a ranch, so there’s lots of cow­boy hats, denim and cool boots,’’ he tells British mag­a­zine Heat. ‘‘I’ve got four. (Cow­boy hats). I don’t have to wear mine as much as John Ross – he’s pretty much con­sis­tently clad in a Stet­son. But I do get to rock the oc­ca­sional cow­boy hat when I’m on horse­back.’’

Dal­las: Wed­nes­days, 9.30pm, Nine, NBN.
