Thanks for suggesting this web series. : ) I sat down to watch it also upon your recommendation and it is addictive! I really can't wait until season two comes out and we can see where the characters will go from there. I also agree that you seem to know all the right people and it's great that you help your friends by spreading the word. : )

Thanks for the comments. I enjoy reading people's discussions. I am partial to Italian, Californian and Australian wines for sentimental reasons. As a student in Australia, it was always cheaper to buy wines than juice or water so that's always a perk! : ) Italy for being half Sicilian and California for it being the best place I visted in my journey through the states (been to 48 of them in my lifetime). Nicoviolet is right about the People magazine. The staffer's vote for the list. : )

I'm not sure if this has been posted before, but Zachary is on People's Sexiest Men Alive list as Sexiest Villan. You can see him on page 132. Here is a quote from him regarding On unwinding off the set,... Continue reading

I began waiting in line at 7:15am to see the Heroes panel at 3:15pm and let me just tell everyone that it definately was worth the wait! You will love the new season of Heroes! I was also there for the Archaia panel and let me just tell you I think all of us could relate to the ``I love you!`` girl and lived vicariously through the girl who got a hug. awww. lol. So psyched to see this new project with Archaia!

I apologize if I came across too strong, but I wanted to look out for the best interests of everyone. I have always been very sensitive in creating an inclusive atmosphere. I will trust you when you say all is well. I also believe we had come to an understanding on this thread, but like I said I was just concerned about others and do apologize again if I came on too strong. I will agree to disagree and wish you the best.

I had only seen the one episode, but now I am watching the series on You Tube. You had me with the mention of John Cho!

I also notice you often refer to blind idolization, but the people I have befriended on this site are from the entertainment and public relations industry, so I think I can safely say that we are speaking about Zachary on a professional and personal point of view. I have even tried to cite a few examples from my own experience to help clarify where I am coming from. If you do continue to stay here and comment, then may I suggest you to use some examples of your own and perhaps the audience would have a better idea of where you are coming from.

Look mate, the only person who can tell either of us to leave this site is the administrator. It's just that others have voiced that they don't appreciate the delivery of your comments and I think that if it is getting to the point where you are upsetting people, then perhaps this is not the right medium. I do think you bring up some excellent points and I think it would be fun to debate, but your audience must be willing as well. You and I are both people who enjoy discussing issues so perhaps you and I should go on the Facebook fan page and just talk there. You may not agree with how people are approaching the blog, but like I said before it is not our place to impose our thoughts on others.

The closest I got to the Salvation Army was at a funeral for my father in law. He died in a tragic sea accident with one other man who belonged to the Salvation Army. I am (and most likely always be) Roman Catholic : )

The poorly translated interview is from the GQ website and I took this random online translator to place it in English. Sil did a fracking awesome job translating the print article.

First of all, I truly must applaude you for translating the printed article for us to read. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I truly appreciate what you did here and I enjoyed the article immensely. You are so lucky to be able to converse freely in two languages. : )

I was going to leave this post alone as you seem to be calling a truce... With all due respect, I think that perhaps your observations are better suited in another forum. I have read your responses to other people's comments and cannot understand why you want to be so antagonistic. It is true that Zachary may never read the posts, but it is more important for the fans to feel a sense of connection with the person they admire. I can recall performing in front of thousands on stage and hundreds in local theatres and there is something truly ecstatic about those moments and it is something that cannot be replicated in film and television. There are some stars who claim that the blogs help recreate that connection with the audience that they are normally missing otherwise. We may be silly and stupid in your eyes for trying to reach out to him, but I think you should just allow us to enjoy those moments. If you genuinely don't believe there is anything great about Zachary, then why are you constantly here reading his posts and people's reaction to them? It's just all so puzzling. I think that you can bring up some great points, but this is not the medium for constant debate. Perhaps you can create a thread on a fansite or seek out another forum where you can voice those opinions and people can have an intelligent debate with you.

You are completely intoxicating. I just want to drink every last word you write and savour every moment you are on screen. It is delightful to see the media applauding you for your gifts as an actor. Although the process must seem completely insane and exhausting at times, I hope there are moments when it is completely invigorating. Thanks for sharing those moments of the tour with your fans. Saturday Night Live should feel honored to have you host the show as it would display the many gifts you have as a performer and allow fans not familar with your work on Off Centre and So noTORIous a chance to see you perform comedic works. It would also be a refreshing change from playing such dark roles. It is also delightful to hear that you will take some moment of solitude and find a tranquil place where you can just escape from the madness for a while and keep yourself grounded. These journal entries are my favorite part of the blog and truly hope you continue to write. You are an inspiration, a muse, to so many people and have had such a positive impact on our lives. I can't wait to see you continue to blossom as a performer and watch the world embrace you for what truly a gift you are...

Hey Nikki, This is one thing you got to do on your trip to New York. The tickets for SNL are free and you can go in and just watch the show. There is so much physical humour that I think you will appreciate in addition to the cultural and current events type remarks. The show has a really long history and so you can catch clips on You tube.

I agree with you. The Sassan character is hilarious and you should see him play a bisexual in off centre. He truly is a gifted actor.

Thanks for adding me to msn. :) I often feel guilty for these long conversations I have on Zach`s site as it should be dedicated more to his work...but I love talking to you guys so much..I can`t help it! Now we can chat online and through email and the blog. : )

No worries mate. I noticed that Zachary had taken time to actually mention the interview so of all things, I really wanted you to enjoy this one. I think laughter is such a key component to our soul and something that should be shared. Just let me know if I could do more things to help you out. Maybe I could have rewritten it to make it more clear or add more explanations. Remember you are already more talented than I am, because you know two languages and I only know one. You`re one step ahead of me! Zach reads at the pace that he is speaking in that interview so if you need any help, just let me know. Hehehe, can`t wait to hear your morning voice!
