  1. I’ve heard of McGoohan but couldn’t picture him – I looked him up (yes, I googled McGoohan) and thought “Wait, he’s the guy in commercials who plays ‘Mayhem’?”

    Obviously he’s not but they sure look alike.

    Sounds like a good lad, that Patrick!

  2. I assume that in the title, by “Love Scenes”, you mean “Sex Scenes”.  I see no reason a devout Catholic would have any problem portraying love on screen, although the filmography of the actor in question provided few opportunities to do that.

    Yes, yes, but the exclusion of even just love scenes, involving simply embrace, suffice for my own reaction to this news.  His (the character’s) private life is private.  And why is that? It is because it is supreme unto him and one other.  That makes it become an examplar  of the ultimate prize.

    In the Wiki page he refused kiss scenes in Danger Man. “A man has to know his limitations.”

  5. Having learned from his experience at the Rank Organisation, he insisted on several conditions in the contract before agreeing to appear in the programme: all the fistfights should be different, the character would always use his brain before using a gun, and, much to the horror of the executives, no kissing.

    How do you define “love scenes”?  Could a person in another profession get to practice “love scenes” too? I am asking for a friend.

  7. Hey Folks, This actor isn’t the only one who refuses to do “love scenes”. Jim Caviezel who played Jesus in The Passion of the Christ, also refuses. Apparently Kirk Cameron’s wife had to step in for a kissing scene in the film Fireproof, it was silhouetted so the shot worked.

    These guys are really taking a profession hit for their convictions, which is really commendable. For an actor who looks like Quasimodo to refuse, isn’t much of a hit, since he will likely never be up for a role that would call for such a scene but these are sexy dudes, who are leading man material. Makes me respect these guys.

    To be honest, some of these “love scenes” in these films are so graphic that it makes the Skinamax movies from the 90’s look like a Pureflix movie. There is no need for it to be that graphic, a simple innuendo is enough. Not to be a complete prude but it’s becoming ridiculous.

    I feel bad for the actresses who basically sell their bodies for the job. The pressure is immense.
