The PA today report that Torchwood star John Barrowman enjoys the thrill of having what he calls a “fan-gasm” on the set of Torchwood,
This apparently happens when he discovers who’s starring in the show with him.
Here’s the story…
The actor, who reprises his role as sexy time-traveller Captain Jack Harkness in the fourth series Miracle Day, tries not to know too much in advance about his own sci-fi series and who’s appearing in it, so he can enjoy the surprise.
“I don’t read ahead. I can’t give you any teasers. I don’t like to know, I’m a geek myself so I like to have my own little fan-gasm,” he said.
John and Eve Myles (as Jack’s Torchwood colleague Gwen Cooper) return for the new season alongside newcomers Bill Pullman as convicted murderer Oswald Danes and ER star Mekhi Phifer as Rex, who John said is “Jack’s worst nightmare”.
“What is great is that I don’t ask who the roles are being played by. I come into work and find Bill Pullman, president of the United States from Independence Day, in the make-up trailer,” he said.
“That’s why I do what I do. I don’t analyse it too much. I love doing the job, I don’t get too involved unless it’s my own show like Tonight’s The Night where I am co-producer. I leave it to the powers that be to make the decisions and I love getting a little fan-gasm myself.”
“We sign these secrecy clauses and we are not allowed to talk about what happens. But let me tell you, Miracle Day is jaw-dropping,” he added.
Torchwood: Miracle Day continues on BBC One.
