Monday Morning Man: Gale Harold!
Today is Gale Harold’s 48th birthday!
This fine actor’s portrayal of Brian Kinney on HBO’s Queer as Folk was one of the most sexy and delicious of any male gay character on television – ever.
He also has many loyal fans from around the world who reminded me that today is Gale’s birthday.
A few years ago, Gale played another gay man in the film Kiss Me, Kill Me and I was an extra in a scene in which he walked by me in a nightclub. So I like to say we did a scene together. Ha!
A few years ago, Gale was asked about the challenges of same-sex love scenes for an actor: “I’m straight, but the character was too important to me to muddle his world with my private life,’ he said. ‘As a nobody, I got away with that deflection. I think it may have helped to introduce Brian as a believable gay man. Maybe not. However it played, it’s been out of my hands for a long time”.
