That photo of Mark is wonderful! I don't think I could imagine Mark as being hard and angry, he always comes across as sweet and kind!

Do you remember Mark's sideburns on The Big Breakfast interview??? Now that was scary.

The beard isn't half so bad.

We're not allowed to say ginger, are we? ;)

You know, I'm really annoyed but I don't have any screenshots of the big breakfast sideburns!!!! Can someone post one if they have them.

My moneys on ginger.

I must be the only person excited that its Quatermass. I love Quatermass. It doesn't attract wankers like certain other sci fi things (mainy because its more horro than owt else). And in the 50s it was the biggest thing ever, the streets were empty when it was on.

As you were.

Well I don't remember the original...

I watched it on BBC4 when they showed it and I can see the attraction. But yes, I am much more excited by this new version.

I'm ignoring all this ridiculous ginger talk.
Ginger all over can be fine, but this multi coloured nonsense... deary me.
Although Mark could carry anything off, naturally.

I don't remember the original either, but the films are my favourites out of the Hammer films.

Oh my god! Laura! Have you seen the video of Mark enthusing (with his beard) on the Quatermass site? Look here under Actor's interviews.

I. Am. Liking. Mark's. Beard.

Ace interviews, a1tiptop! "I made it very clear if I wasn't involved it wasn't going to happen." :D
Sounds like it's gonna be great, quick changes, running around.

(I like when Mark talks straight to camera...)

It's far too late to be lusting but I keep watching that video. He's lovely. Especially when he talks about it being like in school assembly. Such a cute little grin. Keep the beard Mark! Keep it!

*sigh*

Why does every thread turn in to a Mark-lust-fest at the moment? ;)
