Actor, star of the UK touring production of Wicked
George, you’re probably the hairiest guy we’ve shot this year… Am I? I’m aware of the fact I’m a hairy wee guy. Some of the time I don’t like it and sometimes I go, “That’s just the way I am, it’s cool.” I keep on top of it, but I thought if I saw you bald as a coot then, that’s not who I am. I buy GT and Dan Neal last year jumped out at me from the pages because he was so hairy and sexy. I find oiledup and clean-cut attractive too, but if I’m getting my kit off and I’m not being myself then it’s pointless. Are you body confident? Not massively, that’s why I did it. Being surrounded by ripped, younger guys doesn’t mean I want to look like that. I get my back and my arms waxed periodically through the year because that makes me self-conscious. Especially if you’re getting down with someone – you don’t want to feel like a gorilla. Have you always been an out actor? It’s not a secret – my family and everyone I work with knows I’m gay, but when I was graduating seven years ago it was something that we weren’t encouraged to talk about. It was very much walk into an audition and be neutral. But times have changed and there are so many actors very open about their sexuality and they use it for good. What type of men are attracted to you? I can hold my own, and I like to make new friends and chat, so I often find people quieter than me seek me out, whereas I’m looking for a challenge. I want to meet my match and it doesn’t happen very often. Tell us one thing about yourself that would surprise us. I’m a huge Masters of the Universe fan. It was why I wanted to become an actor. My mum made me costumes and three times a week I’d act out every character. Skeletor was my favourite. I’ve always wanted to play a bad guy...
