This is Jonathan Aris.
You may know him as the character everybody loves to hate:
And I think he deserves a little thanks, as an actor. Tumblr is filled with thank-you posts and “bless this posts” when it comes to Martin or Benedict, or Rupert or Mark. But Jonathan Aris has created a character Sherlockians love to see—if only to hear Sherlock’s comments towards him, and see his reaction.
Did you know he was in the original London cast of “Fame”?
Did you know he went to school for painting, initially? Or that he knows Italian and Russian? Or that he plays violin?
I’d just like to thank him for being a great actor, who plays a character that fans put so much hate towards.
tho I genuinely like that character and never really ‘hated’ him lol ;;
Also I told you he looks hot in a beard.
