HAPPY 30th BIRTHDAY to one of my favorite actors who played one of my favorite fictional characters of all time, Van Hansis!
Like a lot of people, my first time watching Van was during his character Luke's coming out storyline on ATWT in 2006. I had heard about the story and my first day tuning in was when Luke came out to Holden and Lily.
^ I saw his incredible acting during the scene; Luke's fear in telling his parents the truth, and having an incredible journey of being who he was, and of course, that adorable face, and I knew I was hooked from that point onward!
Then about one year after that, I was over the moon when I heard that Luke would be getting a new love interest; of course this would end up being Jake Silbermann, who played the love of his life, Noah Mayer. I was taken in once again. They had undeniable chemistry; the two of them together was pure magic.
and, man, this dude can pull those emotional faces like no one else!
and here's some of the really
fun stuff, haha. Isn't he gorgeous?
^ also, is it any wonder he won "best butt" on soaphunks.net?
and some more of his beautiful face:
I'm so happy to hear that Occupant is finally going to be released in the near future, and we'll be seeing his appearance on Psych next month! Can't wait to see everything he does in the future. Happy birthday, Van! You talented guy, you.
