“He is… you know, to be quite honest, I was completely gobsmacked. He gives an absolutely incredible performance and his Belfast accent is flawless.”

Or is this another try to get the audio?! πŸ˜‰

He totally got me too! I freaked a little bit lol. He seems very nice, & I just LOVE what he said about Rupert ( & his accent! ). Great job Karo, thanks again.

February 5th, 2009 at 4:03 PM

I love when people compliment our boy. And those compliments are well deserved. I’m so proud of him. You know, if I didn’t have so many sexual thoughts about Rupert, I would be proud to be his mother! LOL!

February 5th, 2009 at 4:05 PM

Karo, seriously, you’ve done a fantastic job with all these interviews. The new one with David Holmes is the best one so far. Great job!!!

February 5th, 2009 at 4:11 PM

It’s been fun! They’ve all been so nice!

February 5th, 2009 at 4:13 PM

Woo hoo I’m back from my exam, it was better than I expected!
And yay for David Holmes! Lol how cool it would have been if he really played Rupert’s dad? Although David is way too young to be Rupert’s dad, but maybe he could play his older bro!

David is awesome! I’m really loving everyone involved with CB!

February 5th, 2009 at 4:17 PM

Ivana, David turns 40 on the 14 Feb. Rupert’s 20. I’d rather go for the dad than the brother!

I loved all his compliments to Rupert, so cool to hear! makes me really proud πŸ™‚

February 5th, 2009 at 4:36 PM

So… who sings Cherrybomb?!

February 5th, 2009 at 4:39 PM

Oh so David is an Aquarius, cool! And man I can’t believe he’ll be 40 in no time, he looks younger.

February 5th, 2009 at 4:43 PM

Isn’t that a virgo trait? To look younger then one’s age?

February 5th, 2009 at 4:48 PM

Yes it is! Maybe his Ascendant is Virgo? You should have asked him his exact time and place of birth! πŸ˜›
