My fangirl-ishness when it comes to Stephen Furst dates from way back- about ten years ago actually- when Maryland Public Television was showing re-runs of St. Elsewhere every night. For those in the audience who have limited access to American television, St. Elsewhere was a large ensemble medical drama that originally aired here in the States in the 1980's. Stephen Furst played Dr. Elliot Axelrod for several years on that program and I, at fourteen years old, fell in love with him at first sight. I thought he was so adorable (in a let-me-pinch-your-cheeks sort of way). I wanted to kidnap him and make him my cuddly teddy bear. (Don't worry, though. I'm not a stalker. Really. I'm not. I swear. *g*)
Just to show you how bad my fangirl-ishness really is, I'm going to make a huge confession:
I started watching B5 because Stephen Furst was in the cast. No joke, I swear to the Great Maker.
Obviously, once I started watching B5 on a regular basis, I found many other things to like about the show. *g* But Stephen Furst was my primary draw.
I am very, very sad. *g*
(BTW, I have posted the completed "Missing Light: Five Things that Never Happened to Vir Cotto" on ff.net here. Yay! Vir love!)
