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...
